Pioneer SPH-DA120 AppRadio 4 Smartphone Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Too much hacking to get it to work they way you want. 05/30/2016

This review is from: Pioneer SPH-DA120 AppRadio 4 Smartphone Receiver

Pros: Android in you car.

Cons: Android, the way you want it, in you car takes alot of work.
MHL interface to my Note 4 drains battery instead of charging it.
Very limited Android app support out of the box - ARUnchained improves this, but you have to root the phone to get this to work.
You have to buy a parking brake bypass hardware hack device just to get Waze on the dash. Navigation while you are parked makes no sense. On the Atoto unit I put in my wife's car, all you have to do is ground the brake wire. On this unit you actually have to pulse it as it makes you go through a sequence to enforce this (brake, release, then brake). This big brother mentality needs to go.
Tried with an Android stick - the screen jumps - nothing works of the getgo, have to tweak all kinds of setting to get the basics.
GPS doesn't always work - haven't figured out root cause yet.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product to other people. I would recommend one of the native Android Chinese car stereos such as the one by Atoto for half the price.
I would not purchase this product again if given the choice.
If I could change this, I would make Pioneer reproduce the design of the Atoto Android Chineses Double Din car stereo.

Western Digital Green WD20NPVT 2TB IntelliPower 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2GB
Can fit all my Steam library on one drive.

Cons: I wish they would start designing the gaming laptops to accommodate 15 mm in their bays

Other Thoughts: I managed to get this in my Alienware m18xr1 in the cdrom bay with one of those converter things. Had to mod it a bit, plus I used slices of electrical tape to make spacing for the pressure holes.
