Hi there. I have an evo x that did not come with the rockford system. I am getting the head unit at a good price but it's the one that's for evo x's with the Rockford system. Can I still use it and hook up an aftermarket sub and amp?

Thanks.

Whats up guys I'm pretty new to evos. I have a 2015 mr with the rockford sound , but iv noticed that these head units get suggested a lot vs like a Kenwood or pioneer. Why is that and is it possible to add more amps and subs to the system? Are tweeters and mids interchangeable with speakers form say crutchfield or the likes?

Thanks for the help

anything is possible with car audio, these get recommended due tot he price and what you can do with it being essentially a tablet.

and as long as you got the proper fitting stuff you can switch anyhting out with anything

I got 8.1 with octa core and 4Gb of ram for $380 from eBay Sygnav store. You can huggle on eBay and can't on amazon... :) Didnt' install yet but it came with everything.

You do realize that's not for an Evo right?
They actually do make one just like this for the X though. Personally I don't like it, and people who have it have complained it's slow and old tech.


Too big for me. I think the 10" are already kinda big and bulky, but passable. Probably my next mod.

I will post a review once I have it installed. I think the key is to get a good hardware. a lot of these are low on memory. The one I was after I watched a video of the exact unit being operated by a person and saw no scrolling lags, etc.

turned out the Android 8.0 is not that great. i have the exact same apps on it as my 6.0 and the 7 had , and the 8.0 keep crashing it to the point where the screen froze s completely. i have to always do a soft reset...
So i am nor sure why the newer version of Android crashes. the unit is fast much faster then the older ones , at least seems that way to me.
i am hoping some updates coming out soon for this.

the main apps i have:

TQ
Waze
Pandora
World Map Pro
Google apps , like Google Map , Email and store
Tunein Radio Pro
Youtube
Amazon Video
Power Amplifier
beautiful Widgets
Weather Pro

i think thats it.

that seems like alot of things to be running on what is essentially a tablet
the two earlier models didnt crashed with those. i didnt use any new apps or more vs the older models .

This one boots faster, and runs faster. But crashed down, where ask you for the factory reset or try to restart again ( this two options and you need the pin to push the reset button) , that black screen, if anyone saw it before.

:wtfsign:

Not sure if they improved streaming over Bluetooth. The music quality is really poor. Also downloading updates through WiFi is extremely slow as well. It needs 5gh WiFi option. Also when adding extra memory, you can’t tell the unit to use it as it’s main storage. Other than that it’s great. I mostly use waze, Spotify, and a BART scheduler.

My whole plan was to download spotify onto the unit, and to use the WAZE app/ and twitch/youtube. Spotify seems to be okay streaming on the unit though yeah? No reason to stream music via BT if this unit can download spotify for me. Wonder how phone call audio is...

Yes, having Spotify on the unit is best.
