Bought one similar off ebay for my last car and it came from hong kong (touchscreen, GPS, TV, DVD) and it was great. played everything: divX, mp3s, WMA quicktime, played from dvd's, SD cards, USB thumbdrive. GPS worked fine, bluetooth for the phone was fine also. In a nutshell it was a great buy compared to $1000+ for a name brand unit. I could burn dozens of DivX movies onto a DVD and had hours of entertainment.

The instructions were a bit engrish and took a bit of work to figure out some of the bluetooth stuff but everything else was simple.

IMHO.

So i cheaped out and bourght the cheap HK Ebay one... And i am surprisingly happy with it :yes:

once i re-arrenged the front speakers to come out of the rear channel and vice versa, it made the GPS SO MUCH better.

All in all its certainly no $2000+ 7" GPS Touchscreen Audio Player... but hey, it does the job nicely.

It fits nicely, but the gear stick gets in the way when you eject disk in 1st, 3rd and 5th, but that woulde happpen with any Dub Din stereo i guess.

The sound quality is great too, i don't have it through running an amp, just through Focal 6.5" fronts, and it still sounds very clear at high volume

can you please take close up shots of its front and also tell us the brand/model# if known? There are quite a few of these yumcha units on ebay both from HK and local ranging from $200 to $500 and visually there doesnt appear to be any difference between them except price

Yes it has USB, it isnt so good because its at the front and has the "Generic Camera Plug" on the face of the sterio, they give you the adaptor cable with it...

I havn't even tried out the bluetooth...

and the map on it is well up to date, i havn't tried to update it yet. and it is MUCH quicker than my NAVMAN when it comes to directing you around the place, really quick on getting you back on track when ya miss the turn :P

the restriction to a max of 2GB SD card i would say is the biggest bummer with it, but then again, it was only $470 :P

Anyone know if when this says iPhone ready, if the bluetooth will connect to iPhone and allow you to do dialling through the unit?

Really interested in getting one of these too given the feedback so far!

Pat, now that you've had it in for a while longer, is there anything else you found annoying about the unit?

Is there any info on how to update maps later on? Do you just have to download maps from "other sources"?

Also.. how does the TV reception fare?
