It has been a couple months since Blarson's last post so I wanted to spin this up again as I have seen some more options out there.
Tyso USA - $480 with backup camera
Windows CE OS, good pics on amazon site, looks pretty OEM.
Camera looks huge in the pic so not sure where that goes on the car since I dont have a focus yet :)
Saw this posted earlier in the thread but no responses to it.
Koolertron - $469
No other info on this unit
Movewell - $495
one amazonreview with US car had issues with it working may only work with Euro models, dunno, ill probably pass
Metra Kit - $160
Just a dash kit that allows you to install any unit you want.
Otto Navi - $517
Not a ton of info on the amazon site
TF6015A - tradesolution $480
Does lis additional prices in description for some things im not sure what they are.
Built in Digital TV option
ISDB-T(One Seg):$45 USD
TMC option :$25 USD
Wifi USB Dongle , 3G USB Dongle Modem included
Does list 4x60W amp vs most others ive seen are 50W. not that means much in terms of quality.
The review of the movewell unit on amazon is me. That unit would not even turn on for me. As far as my experience is concerned all of these Chinese units are nearly identical with a few minor differences. I have personally tried two with poor success.
As far as a CANBUS adapter, I spoke to a member of this forum who has a euro spec focus and is running one of these systems successfully with no CANBUS adapter.
The only one I'm not sure about is the last one on your list as it looks different than all the others. But if it looks like the movewell or the kooltron or the newerstone, they are basically the same thing at different prices. Although one turned on and functioned, while the other did not, so there may just be a slight difference which will make one work perfect with our American cars?? Idk??
If there was a good android system id head that direction. But I'm done spending hundreds of dollars to experiment with these units. It was a hassle and a big let down. I hope something new and good comes out soon. Good luck. Pm me with any questions.
