Aftermarket double din stereo with sat nav - 2009 Auris 1.33

Recommended Posts

Hi Community,

My first post for my first car 🙂

Bought an Auris 2009 1.33 Petrol a few weeks back. The stereo does not have anything other than CD so I am thinking to upgrade it.

Anyone have any valuable feedback on things like this/Anyone had this installed and would like to share feedback please?

I will make sure the size fittings, all I am concerned is how reliable would be the GPS navigation on this?

Any help much appreciated

Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

First and most obvious, that thing is too cheap, and the pictures on screen seem to be photoshopped in. The reviews, although positive, seems a bit fake to me. Fitting might be a problem, due to being universal fit.

They say: HD TOUCH SCREEN: This car radio MP5 player has a 7 inch digital TFT HD touch screen with 1080P video format and native resolution of 800 * 480pixels, provides you a clearer resolution and bigger display.
So the actual display resolution is 800x480, on a screen that big, it's gonna look not the prettiest, but bearable. The device seems to be universal, so for random cars, meaning the connections will require a bit more hands on, and some experience, and maybe even an soldering iron.

 

You have units being made specifically for Auris, which give a pretty good fit, interface with the steering wheel commands, etc, but they cost 2x more than this, or even more, but with them you usually get a front and rear camera, with the wiring and all, so you kinda get the Dashcam with it.

The CD player you have can read mp3, so that's around 160 songs per disc, or maybe an easier option for you would be adding usb / bluetooth capability for your unit, it's a cheaper alternative, and easier to setup.

If you really want a screen entertainment system best is to look for something branded like  Pioneer or Kenwood, Sony ect., these cheap ones are nothing but waste of money. There are some good units for around £300 on the web that also supports Apple car play and android auto so make more sense and you can use your maps from your phone, connect better rear view camera and enjoy quality stuff. I was thinking of upgrading my system but than I realised that I use my phone for all I need in the car infotainment and no need any further complications and at the end i invested my money in a set of proper winter tyres and good summer tyres instead , so safer driving in any season. 

Regards

People used to say the same for Chinese phones, but look at it now...
I think a good unit will cost you around 180 gbp or so, with wheel commands being functional.  If your main concern is music, usb/aux and bluetooth kits (all in one) are like 30-50 gbp or so, depending where you buy them, and should be  easier to install.

I found myself this nice radio(Kenwood DDX418BT headunit)
that I am looking to upgrade to sometime this year.

Plus I love the fact that it has wiring for the OEM Steering controls.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
