    RCA preout voltage? SiriusXM? How many RCA preouts? Is the manufacturer ever going to offer updates? iDatalink Maestro capability?

    I was on the website and it said that the head unit won't fit those who have the Harmon Kardon system, is there a way to fit this with the system or is it a n go, cause I would totally love to have this head unit.

    How is it looking at the screen from different angles? Is it an IPS screen? What's the resolution?

    Have you had an issue with the screen and glass sticking out of the frame? Mines seems to keep going out more and more. Idk if the adhesive is coming off or what ?

    Hey John, Can I ask if we install this head unit and it forwhatever reason breaks and u need to put the OEM head unit back in, will the manipulation of the OEM cables to make the back up camera work make the OEM one obsolete once you try to re-install? Cheers

    I have a Seicane Headunit with Android 7.1.2 i believe that i bought second hand for super cheap. I have a 2018 WRX Base and i wanna get the Backup Camera working i bought the SubiSpeed Harness and it doesn't fit this HeadUnit 🙁 .Anyway that you could link me to forum page that might have a Dummy guide for wiring please. xD Preferably with as little splicing as possible i'm not the best at wiring someone who's colorblind could probably do better.

    Does this HU works with HK package or do I need extra harness for it? It's for 2017 Limited. Thanks!

    Thanks for all of your Android head unit videos John!

    I'm pretty sure I have watched them ALL! Some of them three or four times! Your video's helped me finally pull the trigger on the Seicane 9 Inch Android Oreo unit after having a big empty hole in my dash for about a year and a half! I have a 2014 Forester that I did an epic custom Alpine INE-Z928HD 8" deck & Multi-amp install on in the Subaruforester.org forums a few years ago. Unfortunately my Forester was broken into and the Alpine was pried from my dash (lucky they left all my amps and speakers lol) I didn't want to go through all the dash cutting and customizing I had to do on the new dash again to replace the Alpine and started looking for Android units when I found your video's and Seicane.

    After several months of watching your videos and seeing your progression through Android decks I decided it was time to finally fill that hole in the dash! I ended up with the Seicane H235G model and I believe yours featured in this video is the H205G model. The 2014 Forester does not have the MFD control buttons on the dash (mine are on the steering wheel similar to paddle shifters) anyway Seicane assured me the H235G (for my Forester) and the H205G models were the same other than the plastic dash piece. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be 100% true. My unit seems to be missing the SD card slot and has a different launcher (although the apps look the same).

    I just received my unit last Friday (8/10) From Seicane after waiting several weeks to receive it. Seicane supplied multiple antenna wire harnesses as well as both the Subaru 20 pin and 28 pin wire harnesses. In fact the only wire harness they didn't supply was the stock USB port retention harness. $12 and an Amazon prime order later and that issue was resolved!

    Install was a snap (however I did reference SVXdc's website pinout just to verify the harness was wired correctly before physical install) after I verified the harness was wired correctly It was literally a simple plug and play install. Easy peasy went right in and hooked up to the balance of my multi-amp setup with only one minor issue. I did need to add one pin to the harness to power up the Subaru FM antenna amp & to remote turn on my Amplifiers. Lucky the thugs left me with SVXdc's 20 pin harness from my previous install with most of the wires still in tact. I just pulled a spare out of that harness and added it to the Seicane harness and away I went. That was really my only minor setback during install.

    I really was not expecting much by way of sound quality from the Seicane, and can attest that it surely does not match the SQ or tune-ability of my Alpine deck, however with a couple of little tweaks it sounds pretty good. Alpine good? No. As good as 80% of all the other decks that are not top shelf… YES! Absolutely. It does suffer from one issue that I am in the process of resolving. Even with all of my old school Rockford Fosgate 800a4 & 800a2 amp gains cranked to the max my amps remain severely under-driven by this deck. With most sources I can crank up the Seicane deck to 28/30 and my amps and speakers are asking the deck "is that all you got?" So it is obvious that the pre-outs are all only 2V pre-outs. Something some people may want to consider when purchasing the deck. The solution to this for me is going to be the AudioControl Matrix Plus 6 channel line driver that is being delivered tomorrow. The line driver will boost the pre-out's up to a level that my amps and speakers should scream "no more… PLEASE!" This will allow the appropriate drive to be applied to the amplifiers as well as allow me to crank the gains almost all the way back down to the bottom third "low noise" area they should be running in and give more dynamic range and headroom as well.

    When I first powered up the deck and played with it for several hours I was absolutely giddy with it! I think my modest audio quality trade off will be well worth the flexibility gain this deck provides particularly after the line drivers gets installed tomorrow. Is it perfect… No.. but it's pretty damned good! I have already hooked my 140GB SSD SATA drive up via a SATA to USB adapter. The Seicane supplied music app doesn't like this very much and takes a few minutes to tally up the folderfiles on the drive and frequently crashes while playing this large of an MP3 collection, which leaves the drive in a corrupt state according to Android OS. Windows says the drive has no problems, but Android INSISTS it is corrupt! I have tried with a much smaller 60GB collection of MP3's on the drive and the default music app seems ok with that! Seems like the Seicane music app cant handle too many MP3 filesfolders. Currently I am playing my MP3's using VLC (until I find something I like better) and it has not crashed one time with my full 140GB collection. So this appears to be an app issue. I do however need to remember to dismount the drive before I turn the car off to prevent Android thinking the drive is corrupt at power on. Still not sure what the deal is with this. It's a little rough around the edges in this regard, would love this to be better, but I guess it's acceptable, I just wish it would remember what song was playing and return to that spot at power on… oh well cant have everything.

    So far I am very impressed overall with the deck it has exceeded my expectations by a large margin so far. To anyone worried about sound quality all I can offer is this. It's not perfect, and really NEEDS line drivers installed in my opinion. I will also probably install Viper4Android for audio tweaking, but you need to take a look at how serious you really are about SQ. If you paid less than a grand for your set of two or three way separates in your doorsdash and overall have less than about $5K into your sound system you probably would be ok with the deck. Hell I don't even have a hint of spark plug or alternator wine and I was expecting that to be my BIGGEST issue as it usually is with cheap off brand car stereo's where they skimp on things like proper filtering.

    Impressed! Really impressed so far for the cost, flexibility of, and origin of the unit! I would recommend to all but the moderate to high level audiophile

    I have an older Android headunit with android 7.1 installed, but from Xtrons instead. It also has the setting to make it sleep instead of shutting down, and I've set it to like 15mins or so, but it still coldboots everytime, unless I turn on acc again within 1 minute. Know what to do, anyone?
