Thumbs down Eonon-just Say No

Can't speak to the D5150, but the D5124F I purchased for my 2005 X5 was junk for many reasons. You can find specifics elsewhere on this and other fora.

Spend the extra and buy something that...

I came back from Germany in September 2013 and put an Eonon D5124F in my X5 E53 that should be illegal to sell. So I got the new Android Dynavin. It is a step up, but is far too rudimentary to...

One of the advantages to buying from eBay and Amazon is the you can put in your exact brand/model/year/variation.

Eonon D5124F

The D5124F will "fit", and some functions might work as long as you use the A0565 cable if your radio receiver is in the tire well and you do not have the DSP amplifier. You will likely not receive...

Are Most Satisfied with the D5124F

Not I. It is true much of my dissatisfaction is due to lack of Eonon support for the D5124F.
