I'm very happy with my purchase.
The Bluetooth hands free facility was nice and for the money I didn't expect much from the microphone, but if I'm being honest it was actually fine. It's was also fairly simple to use and the quality of the screen picture when playing back DVD's was also pretty good. Being able to sit on the drive and downloads apps made easy work of putting on the HERE WE GO navigation that I'm used to from work.
Unfortunately for me part of the screen seemed to have a fault from the start and wanted to select things it's self from that corner almost constantly. It made the unit unusable in the end. Loosing radio stations and scanning all the time along with switching to whatever app was situated there. I tried contacting PUMPKIN over many weeks with no responce. Unit was sent back and I bought another similar almost identical unit from a different company, which has proved faultless. If it had been working properly coupled with the low cost to purchase I would have happily given it 4-5 stars, but I can only offer 2 at a push from my experience.
1 - BUILD QUALITY
The headunit arrived nicely packaged. When I opened the box, I was instantly impressed with the build quality and overall feel of the unit. The buttons and connections are well made. The buttons in particular provide a nice tactile feel and adds to the overall premium feel. I purchased this headunit to replace the standard Sat Nav unit on my 2012 Seat Leon FR and would say the build quality is as good as the original Seat unit. The screen is 8-inch which is great as most of these units including the original VW Group RNS 510 headunits only have 7-inch screens.
2 - CONTENTS
The box included an AUX cable, Cam-in cable, GPS antenna, Wi-FI/3G antenna, 3G Modem, USB cable, external mic and user manual. This headunit does not come with a power cable. It is designed for VW Group cars so you can use the original power cable from your original stereo which is plug and play. If you are planning to fit the headunit to a non-VAG group car, you may need an additional adapter so I suggest you contact the seller first and they can provide the correct adapters for you. The headunit has a double fakra aerial connection that you will find on VAG cars so the aerial will be plug and play out of the box without any need of additional adapters.
3 - FITTING
The fitting process was simple and took me no more than 20 minutes. The most time-consuming part was removing the dash trim from the car and this will vary on different vehicles. If you struggle, a quick Google or YouTube search should give you a simple guide to remove the dash trims on your car. You will not go wrong with connecting the headunit up, the user manual is easy to follow and the connections are self-explanatory.
Once fitted, the headunit provides an OEM appearance similar to the RNS 510 headunit so it looks right at home in the dash as if it was there from the factory. The Pumpkin logo is simply a sticker so it can be removed. I removed it from my headunit as it makes the unit look more OEM and cleaner in the dash. The headunit is fully canbus compatible which means it can receive information from the on-board computer, steering wheel controls, parking sensors/OPS, doors open/close and A/C display. You can even monitor information from your cars ECU which include the speed, RPM, miles, fuel level, tyre pressures etc. These functions will depend on the canbus system of your vehicle so not all functions will work on every car. The back lit buttons can be customised to any colour to match the rest of your dash and add to the factory look.
4 - PERFORMANCE & FUNCTIONALITY
There are a range of functions included ranging from mirror link, DVD, Bluetooth, USB port, SD card, OBD2 compatible for apps such as Torque, AM & FM radio, DAB+ radio (additional antenna required), steering wheel controls, Wi-Fi, 3G data, Cam-In support for a reversing camera (not included), and various ports to expand your ICE system.
This headunit is running Android 5.1 Lollipop which has been optimised to work with car stereos. The performance of this headunit is what sets it apart from others. The specs include a Intel SoFIA-3GR Quad Core processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB built in storage space which can be expanded by USB or Micro SD. The audio outputs at a maximum of 4 x 45W and the device boots up from cold in no more than 10 seconds. These specs allow for fantastic performance and I have not experienced any issues. Most Android headunits only have 1GB RAM which can often make them slow and laggy. However, the fact that this unit has 2GB does make a big difference to the way it handles the operating system and apps.
The built-in storage of 16gb is plenty for most people. However, if you want to store a lot of videos and music to the device you can expand the storage space using a USB stick or Micro SD card. There are two Micro SD slots at the front, one is for navigation such as the iGO system and the other is for media files.
Being an Android device, you can treat this device as an Android tablet. It allows for a ton of customisation options and thousands of Apps from the Playstore. I have been able to download my favourite apps from the Playstore using my smartphone as a hotspot for Wi-Fi connection. The built in Wi-Fi works flawlessly and I have not encountered any problems with connectivity or download speeds. I was easily able to connect to my home’s Wi-Fi when parked outside on the driveway. If you prefer, you can use a 3G data sim card to give the headunit access to the internet using the 3G modem provided. Please note that the unit supports 3G only and not 4G. I downloaded the Spotify app and a large playlist directly to the unit in minutes. I like the fact that I can use Spotify directly on the unit and no longer have to have my phone connected to an Aux cable. You will be able to download all your favourite apps that you use on your smartphone and tablets on to this headunit directly from the Playstore.
The audio quality is brilliant and on par with the original stereo. The Android system has been optimised to include an equalizer so you are able to adjust the audio settings to suit your preferences. The radio signal is perfect and the unit displays the names of the radio stations. There are a number of outputs to allow you to add speakers, amps and subs to your set up if you wish to do so. There is also output for a reversing camera if you wish to set one up. This unit is DAB+ compatible but does not include a DAB+ receiver or antenna.
The screen in very good indeed with a reasonably high resolution of 1024 x 600. This is plenty for an 8-inch screen, especially on a stereo because you will only be looking at it from distance. Overall, picture quality is great and viewing angles are spot on providing clear and vibrant colours. I have been able to use the headunit in direct sunlight without any issues. The screen brightness is adjustable. The touchscreen is perfect and I have not had any issues with the unit not responding to feedback. In fact, feedback is instant and typing on it is a pleasure. I have watched various videos on YouTube and playback from files on a USB stick in MP4 format all of which provided a crystal clear picture quality.
5 - NAVIGATION
The GPS is great and finds your exact location in a matter of seconds (do not forget to turn 'location' on as you would with your smartphone or tablet). There is a GPS card slot at the front of the unit which is not included so you will need to install the navigation app of your choice. I currently use the iGO app which I have installed on a Micro SD card. You can find a download link for the app on the Pumpkin forums or by contacting Pumpkin directly. However, having access to the Playstore means that you can choose from the hundreds of navigation apps available. You have the choice to purchase apps such as TomTom or Garmin or use one of the many free apps available. Using the GPS system on this device is a pleasure and I can now retire my TomTom. You can go in to the settings and change the default navigation app so that it will start automatically when you hit the navigation button on the unit.
6 - CONNECTIVITY
I have a Google Pixel XL smartphone which I paired with this unit via Bluetooth and as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Both of which connected flawlessly. I was able to view all my contacts on the headunit and make calls. The mic is very good and having called a few members of family and friends to try it out, they could all hear me loud and clear. As well as making phone calls you can use Bluetooth to stream music from your phone to the headunit.
7 - VERDICT
This is one of the best headunits that I have owned and I am very happy with it. I would certainly recommend it if you want a premium quality and OEM looking headunit for your VAG car. At this price, it is an absolute bargain when you compare it to the likes of an RNS 510 headunit. The customer service support of Pumpkin is absolutely brilliant. If you have any questions they will reply fairly quickly considering the time difference between the UK and China. They will provide links to the latest software updates, links to the iGO navigation system and installation notes.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to answer them.
Very good attention from provider. They solve my questions.
