Right mini review, 1st impressions its a cracking unit, it's easier to fit into the dash, you will need to remove the glove box and thread the main wiring harness through to the left,
There is a Velcro sticky pad for you to use to secure the canbus decoder,
The ariel adaptor fits perfect NO issues,
But the two clips that secure the unit have pan head transport screws fitted , these need to be removed and swapped for the countersunk screws prior to fitting ,
You will also need to remove the two transport screws from the top of the unit that hold the disk chassis, big red tab in top telling you to remove them , you can't miss them ,
Also remember to remove the - neg terminal prior to installing as if not it can throw the canbus system into safe mode,
My satnav ariel I mounted in the head liner behind the light cluster and ran the cable down the passenger side air bag cover and down by the heater motor into the empty cd30 slot ,
The 4G ariel I removed the centre speaker cover
And GID cover and threaded it down,
I put coloured tape round one so I knew which was which and didn't get them mixed up ,
The rest was literally a matter of threading the wires to the left of the glove box and plug and play, the rear view RCA is to the green RCA and your away ,
Satnav you have to set the route path for your maps to work prior to use,
Sound quality wise is crisp with a reasonable amount of base for just a head unit ,
It has a specific gain for running subs which my old unit didn't,
It also has full address book function via Bluetooth , on screen caller id, and call logging ,
You can also set it up to auto answer or manual,
Has car keys BC & OK buttons to use the GID set functions ,
You can choose from a whole host of main dealer logo's for your boot screen ,
One disappointing thing is mine has the Opel logo but doesn't have the vauxhall logo,
So have stuck with the eonon one for now ,
As I mentioned the are approx 8 colours to choose from for your LED's , my smd conversion is white which isn't an option so in hoping stampede can work his magic on it lol,
I will add to this with more pictures etc as I work my way through the next few weeks and spend more time using it.

First of all, I have to mention very fast delivery. After that, professional packaging that make this player come to my place in one peace. I have to admit that I was very worried if the player will pass transportation and customs.Replacing old stereo with this one is super easy and it took me exactly 20 minutes not mentioning that everything worked excellent on first start! Didnt even have to configure original controls on the steering wheel.The quality of product is excellent. Software is easy and intuitive to use. Sound quality is excellent (I have to say, even better then my original player I had before). Picture quality is great! Really, really excellent! I am very satisfied and after all, very happy that I have made the right choice among all other players in the market! I have plans to mount TPMS so I hope that we will do business again very soon;) Thanks Eonon and keep the good work going.

The Eonon G2240 really surprised me in a positive way. It is a really good unit, the delivery was fast and installation was easy. I got the G2240 a week after I placed the order. It took me about three hours to install, the main reason for this was that I had to place a new centre console in my Astra G, because it had only two single din slots and I needed a double din. After the centre console was installed it took about 15 minutes to install the unit in the car.Once installed the Eonon G2240 works very simple and really great.The navigation, Ipod music, Bluetooth pairing with my phone and handsfree calling and watching DVDs all works really good. The interface looks really nice and works very smoothly. Also the loading time of the maps, DVDs and the music from an Ipod is good.I think Eonon has done a great job with the G2240 and I think the Eonon G2240 is really worth its money!

I just completed installing Eonon D5124F 7inch digital touch screen car DVD player/Stereo with built-in GPS. Its a great replacement for my ancient cassette player/radio/cd player riddled with missing pixels on my 1997 528 with non-dsp audio! Its very OEM looking and the stereo output is incredible. The button lights perfectly match the rest of the dash lights.
The system is compatible with the steering wheel controls and works great. It boots up with BMW logo and everything just works - GPS, Ipod/Iphone interface (charges and plays music off my Iphone), Radio with RDS, SD memory card (my entire music collection is now in 16gb SD card), USB, blue tooth and auto backup camera. The dvd plays movies even when the car is on the move! The install was plug and play and no coding required.
My car is now transformed into an entertainment center and I now enjoy driving much, much more than ever before. At $410 (player backup camera) 2 years warranty it was a no brainer to go for the unit. The customer support from Eonon was awesome and all my installation queries and jams were cleared. The shipment was very fast - from HonKong- arriving at my door in 7 days.
I was told by eonon the 2 years warranty does not apply for purchases from the ebay resellers, so I skipped them. My audio system has the factory amplifier, Blaupunkt Blue Magic XLf 200 Subwoofer System (in the armrest)), Boston Acoustics SC50speakers in the front and Infinity reference component speakers at the rear. The eonon D5124 powers through this so well. The output is clean with tight bass.

I ordered this D5151 for my 2006 Mazda 3 on 07-21-2013 and it arrived to my home in Texas 07-25, first good impression. It came perfectly packed, plastic bag on the outside plus inner bubble wrap to protect the box.
It took me 2.5 hours to install the unit; I had a minor issue with one of the brackets that come with the unit, used to support the factory LCD display. It didn´t fit in one side of the LCD display. I needed to grind this bracket with a small disc of my rotary tool, (I think less than 1/32 inch) to make it fit perfectly, which I finally did.
There are also 2 plastic clips that need to be assembled. Once you connect every cable, which is very easy, you need to figure out how to place all the cables and connectors in the back of the unit so that they don´t interfere with the unit when putting it in its final place. This can be easily done only if you completely remove the central part of the dashboard above the radio, the one that has the air vents. It also show you a place to fix the GPS antenna.
When I finally put the unit in place it was amazing, everything fitted perfectly, it´s like it was made by Mazda! I turned it on and everything worked perfect, first thing I checked was the computer data, MPG, miles remaining, average, clock, , and they were there!; this was the main reason I bought this unit, and never before tried to buy another one. (Taken from another review) Just press and hold the MODE button on the steering wheel until the message Settings appears on the LCD display. - Then press UP to navigate through the items, press DOWN to get the time. To set the time, navigate to the time and press and hold DOWN until the message 12/24 Hours appears; use UP to set the values each and use DOWN to switch to the hours field.
This unit is amazing! sound is good, display resloution is good has new NFC feature and many others, It matches perfectly the dashboard. I´m completely satisfied with this purchase, and I expect to enjoy it for years as long as I have the car or EONON release an upgrade. Carlos
