Dynavin vs. eonon LCD multimedia display



Can anyone tell me which would be a better fit and which unit works better for my BMW E90?

The Dynavin DVN-E9X
BMW series 6.2" Touch Screen LCD Multimedia Navigation System

Or

The eonon d5165U
7" Car DVD Player GPS 1 Din Bluetooth Touch Stereo Radio

Your thoughts and expertise in the issue is greatly appreciated. Any pics you have with these using installed would be great too!!!

In all honesty, the Dynavin is the better unit, but that should be no surprise since it costs 3 times more than the Eonon.

I say this because the Eonon units can sometimes be buggy with their GPS software, and microphones. Now, if you're a bit computer savvy, that's fine. You can install 3rd party GPS applications, and do software/firmware updates as they become available.

Personally, I went in on a group buy for the E46 model. At $319.. the price is unbeatable, and that was for the updated interface version, that supposedly had all the kinks worked out.

I'd head over to E90Fanatics and look in the Site Sponsor/Group Buy section. The sales rep's name is Carlos, and I'm sure there will be a group buy going on soon if there isn't already.

Dynavin = $1100
Eonon group buy = $329

For the small chance that a few bugs will be encountered here and there.. the Eonon is a no-brainer in terms of value.

Let me know, i am about to purchase one or the other now for my E46. (B-Day gift ).
Need to know what add-ons need to be purchased as well, e.g. GPS antennae or it comes with one? etc.

Dynavin is pretty horrible. I have been using it for the last 3 years. I wished I hadn't bought it and just went with a Garmin + Dice iPod interface.

i just purchased the dynavin today. after reading all the reviews the new N6 is the way to go if you don't want to replace stock amp, speakers and head unit. (logic 7)

lots of bad reviews on older generation dynavin. i will give you my feedback once it is installed later next week.
