    Hi all,
    I'm currently thinking about replacing my OEM unit (Concert) for one of these Chinese android ones.
    I have the non-bose system but I do have the subwoofer(and probably amplifier) in my trunk.

    I am aware of the issue with the rear speakers not working with some of these systems and was wondering if anyone has ever fitted one that was indeed plug and play and has the rear speakers and amplifier working well.

    Thanks for your help.

    Check out a thread in the ICE section - quite a few people did this, including me, and love them. You'll need an extra audio filter to fix the noise from speakers, but other than that they are mostly plug and play. If you like how Android works then you'll love this system over RNSE all day long.

    I have bought the plug and play version (I also have subwoofer and amp in the trunk, non BOSE system) which also comes with CAN BUS decoder (so you can attach a reversing camera and it gets activated upon switching to reverse gear, have steering wheel controls work, etc.) but I don't have the link.

    I could take some photos of the unit and the UI, might help you find it.

    Thanks for the pictures. Having a hard time finding this one (Was searching on eBay and AliExpress).
    Did you have any problem with the rear speakers with this unit? Or did the audio quality stay the same as the OEM unit?

    Thanks again.

    No problems with the rear speakers whatsoever, complete plug 'n' play unit. The audio quality looks to be as same as OEM unit, but on the other hand, I am not much of an audiophile so maybe it's just me not noticing the difference.

    Thanks for the input guys.
    Erisn's unit has a really attractive price though after reading some reviews about them I'm not that sure I want to buy from them (almost all reviews are bad).

    @Rideen - I couldn't find any website that sells the exact same unit you have.
