Furthermore, the device allows access to Google apps. Therefore, users have a huge set of app options that can be used to expand the features of the car stereo. Also, sideloading is allowed.
The screen has the ability to play 720p and 1080p, giving for some entertainment to users during boring times in the middle of a traffic jam or while on a long road trip. It is also equipped with an AM and FM radio, a CD player and a DVD player. For more in-car entertainment feature, a rear-view camera is available.
Moreover, there are two slots called Maps and Media that enable users to pop in micro SD cards with capacities up to 32GB, adding to the content of the device. For those who want to plug in an iPhone or iPad may do so through a built-in USB port, while a 3.5 mm audio jack may be used for earphones.
However, just like any other products, the device has a few advantages. The Adayo AN6B01 car radio is among the few double DIN car radios which have an entire operating system running on it. However, the old version of Android OS leaves something to desire for.
If only the device has an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed, it would have been better. Furthermore, its vertical scrolling is difficult to use due to the small measurement of the screen. Other than that, if there were an RDS station on the radio function, or an HD radio, it would have been better as well.
The Adayo AN6B01 car radio represents the advantage of open source of software like Android. Being available to a wide range of developers, the device can be used in a wide range of products that are not limited to the usual tablets or mobile phones.
Apparently, Adayo AN6B01 is the first car stereo operated by Android. Consequently, its advantages and disadvantages can be expected to be a subject for further improvement. Aside from that, due to this great innovation which is starting to gain success, expect other manufacturer to follow the trend in creating a more innovative product like the Adayo AN6B01.
