Normally I would disregard this, but the price difference is just too huge to ignore. Has anyone tried the Enco B046?

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/519290879/Android_car_dvd_player_pc_system.html

I order through Alibaba all the time at work and have had good experiences trading through them.

It looks like an exact clone of the Dynavin Android, for 1/3 of the price. My initial reaction was to disregard it, but if it runs Android and a 720Mhz Arm, then we know it is operationally solid. Only thing I am worried about is the screen and/or amp, if they are different at all.



Has anyone tried this unit? It looks similar enough to have been made in the same factory. For $320 (or $450 for Android version) it might be worth a gamble.

Not that I have been able to find. I've hardly found any information beyond a spec/feature list, and a bunch of pictures. Everything is 100% identical to the Dynavin units, down to the choice in the OS, wattage, features, everything.


Here's what I'm really curious about : Is this a Dynavin clone, or is this Dynavin's supplier?

supplier

Im pretty sure it is the actual manufacturer. Check this out:

szenco.com's Contact us page
http://www.szenco.com/contact.html

Dynavin's About us page
http://www.dynavin.com/aboutus.php

Note dynavin's "factory is located in Shenzhen city" and the official address of szenco is "No.9J,JinDaCheng Building,Center Road,Shajing Street,Baoan District,Shenzhen,518125 China"

confirmed?

Im going to try to get a hold of them and get pricing. Interestingly it's listed as coming with android 2.3 unlike 2.2 with Dynavin. The stability between froyo and gingerbread for my droidx was huge so it may help on this too if there are any issues currently.

I don't think so. These vendors usually use the post, so shipping is reasonable. It takes a few weeks though.


I've had good experiences ordering through Alibaba. My only reservation is that customer service will be impossible if anything goes wrong. But at this price, you can buy a second one and still come out ahead.

They do seem similar. The buttons etc are different though

a few differences i notice right away, and for the better.

ARM11 720mhz vs ARM A8 600mhz for dynavin
android 2.3 vs. 2.2
built in WIFI (no dongle?)
512M DDR2 RAM pretty sure is more than dynavin

It also wont have Parrott support as with the D99 and has nothing about OBD or PDC support.

So it could be just the same as any of the cheap android units about on the market except with nice buttons (near oem) and excluding the large development and relationships dynavin have put in to get their unit to where it is today.

Still too dubious for me. Tried and tested one all the way.

I just submitted this to them

1. Does this unit support OBD (on board diagnostics) for the BMW E46?
2. What bluetooth module do you use and is it phonebook compatible?
3. Does your unit have a dual radio tuner?
4. Do you have the user manual in a format that you could email to me? Preferable English but I will take it in any language available.

(I didn't ask about PDC since it is irrelevant on my car.) Probably should have for the benefit of those here.

They seemed to be pretty quick at answering my first inquiry about price which was as spage said $450+$70S&H.
