  Android 9.7" vertical screen
Posted by: Luidgi123 - 11:th-Jul-2018, 21:28:20 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Technical - Replies (2)

After analyzing the various alternatives to replace the CD400 of my 1.7 CTDI 2011 for an android I opted for this model You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.
It arrived at 15 days in perfect packaging.
Aided by the how to of the forum the assembly was not complicated at all, although it takes 3-4 hours if you have prepared it well, but it can be double.
The truth is that I can not be more satisfied by aesthetics, performance and quality / price:
Android 6.0, 32Gb ROM, 2GB RAM, Sygic pre-installed, etc.
Summary evaluation:
Radio 7/10 with respect to CD400, no problem of power antenna, goes direct through its connector
GPS navigator 9/10
Sound 8/10
Functions CAN BUS 10/10 All perfect even control air conditioner.
Perfect steering wheel keys and no need for any adjustment.
I want to emphasize that I had many doubts about these functions and the CAN BUS but it works EVERYTHING to perfection and it is enough to plug in and that's it!

I added a rear camera and also works for CAN BUS.
[Image: 22]
Keys lock doors, warning, ESP are perfect and with its light.
The screen has the device at the top and it is very small, it fits without any problem in its hole and the adjustment to the original frame is perfect.
The only drawback is that it comes without any instruction paper at all although the Chinese seller does respond minimally to the questions.
I've related some aspects over the installation at the brother spanish forum:

Wink Hello from another leacher!
Posted by: Delboy - 8:th-Jul-2018, 19:17:16 - Forum: Introduction Area - Replies (4)

Hi Guys,

Literally the proud new owner of a 2013 Astra 2.0CDTI Ecoflex Elite, moving on from a Seat Leon so getting used to the changes!

I'm not what you would call a car modder, however having owned it for one day I've already decided that the head unit has got to go, will probably look in to getting one of the android head units installed instead.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello, was only joking about the leaching!  Most likely see you in the ICE sub forum!  Chat

  Clunking noise when driving - Unsual one tho???
Posted by: everson38 - 2:nd-Jul-2018, 02:36:09 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Technical - Replies (1)

Hey guys on my Astra gtc I am noticing that sometomes hen pull off sharply and when u turn the wheel left going in forward or reverse it can clunk also.

Now when I have had this in for service or MOT they have mentioned it to me but can never seem to tell me where it's coming from making me wonder if the usual aspects of front shock , top mounts etc are not the usual culprit here. Has anyone else had this issue?

Any ideas would be great thanks.
