android 6.0 astra J system aliexpress
#1
Hello guys!

Since some time i found out aliexpress sells some car systems for my Opel Astra J.
Since that time im thinking all the time if i should buy this system yes or no. Because i don't know the quality of the systems i still have doubts, so thats why i put some questions here.

Does any bought their system from aliexpress? 
If yes, everything ok with this? Still working after some time?

I would like to buy this one:

For sure you should go with the newer PX5/MTCD system. They're a lot faster and operate much smoother.
There's really only one company that makes these for opel/vx named witson iirc.
Also this is only plug and play if you have a cd300/cd400 system. Higher end systems aren't as easily replaced.

Iceboxauto in the UK has a good selection for the astra J. I have the m072 which is great. The newer Android 6 one has better hardware.

From what I understand, the standard head unit remains and operates as before. It's just the display that gets replaced.

Now that the guys over at XDA have some custom firmware for the PX5 systems that's the one I'm going to get eventually.

This is the m072, most of the members on here have this one. Android 4.4. eBay You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

The newer one is faster and uses Android 6. Not sure what the custom OS support is like?

There is a how-to in the ice section. 1 hour job to fit. Easy
