Eonon Android DVD Nav system

I bought an Eonon touch screen unit to install in my vehicle. Installer said that not only do the holes for mounting not match up, but the bezel does not fit over it. This is a 2 DIN.
Has anyone ever installed one of these units? I'm not sure if my installer is full of it, or if this is going to be a big pain. I really don't want my bezel cut.

Here is the unit I have. Eonon GA5177 | Jeep Android Car DVD | Jeep Specific Car DVD | Android Car DVD for Jeep

Greetings,

Many of the aftermarket head units for the WK2 GC will need to have some sort of trimming for the Bezel. My AppRadio had a little haircut and nothing looks at of place.

Try another installer and see what they think.

Best for now.

Re: Eonon Android DVD Nav system

I recently installed the universal unit, the G2110, in over the holidays. Have mixed feelings about it. I did have trouble fitting it in, but I used to be an installer years back so a little time and patience, and it went in looking good. I'm not sure if the unit you listed has the mounting holes on the top or the sides. The holes def need to be on the top of the unit. I used the Metra dash kit to fit mine in, however, even me using the kit required me to trim off some plastic trim on the radio and shave some plastic off the dark kit as well. Also, I needed to recess my unit slightly because it wouldn't fit through the stock dash opening and I wasn't going to trim that at all. I am in the process of tying in the steering wheel controls right now. Best of luck.

That looks good! Thanks for the pics.
Mine def has the mounting holes on the sides and not the top and bottom.
I guess I will have to exchange it for a different version.

Re: Eonon Android DVD Nav system

Thats a bummer. what is the return/exchange policy like? I do recall seeing their Jeep specific models and one definitely had the top holes for the newer WK2 and Wranglers. Their customer support is interesting too. I bought mine from ebay but went to the Eonon site and tried to chat with live support for a few questions i had. They are mostly a scripted chinese call center. I'm a little disappointed now because i see the one unit that replaced mine has iPod controls. Be aware too that the bluetooth audio quality isn't the best.

Re: Eonon Android DVD Nav system

Well, turns out I returned it for a full refund, and since they advertised it for my car and it did not fit, they actually gave me a return label too. Overall I would say that Eonon was a really nice company to deal with, went back and forth with their tech guys a few times and customer service and they were really top notch.

So.... after all that, I ended up buying a RHR factory radio. Since I had a 130S before, I know I need the 82211666 microphone harness to wire in my rear view mirror microphone correctly. Also the 68068278AA USB Jumper Cable to wire in my USB connection in my center console.

Anyone know if my sirius antenna will deliver GPS Navigation? Or know of a thread on here that talks about this?
