This Xtrons universal device has recently been offered at a very competitive price! The device has the quad-core processor Cortex A7 with 1.2 Ghz clock frequency and uses Android 8.1 . The radio has 2GB RAM and 16GB memory for running apps. On eBay the all-rounder is already available for 175 Euro !

The new Xtrons device has a 1024 x 600 pixel display. At the bottom left of the screen is a slot for microSD cards. There are sensor keys for the volume, a back button and the on/off switch. At the top you can see a small hole from the internal microphone. If a reset is necessary, you can easily reach the opening above the SD card slot.

You’ll also find three USB inputs on the back of the device. You can connect 128GB USB sticks to them. The four speaker outputs have 45 watts each. There are also four audio outputs with RCA plugs to connect an external amplifier. There’s even a subwoofer output.

A DVD drive is not included. Altogether the car radio makes a very valuable impression, since it consists predominantly of glass and metal.

The Xtrons TR771L is a universal device that comes with Android 8.1 already. The radio also has a volume knob.

The Xtrons TE697P has a slightly smaller 6.95 inch display. But it has a DVD drive. There is a wipe area for volume control. I like this very much. The back button has been saved, but it’s available in the upper sidebar again anyway. The two universal devices don’t differ from the technical data.

Caution with cheap devices

Make sure that you do not buy a device with WinCE 6.0. You cannot install apps on this operating system. In addition, these radios only have a processor with 800 Mhz and 256MB RAM. After some time this leads to jerks in the operation and sometimes also to interruptions in the music playback. Because you can easily confuse the devices, I have always provided links to good devices with Android 8.

If your vehicle has two antennas, these are for diversity. If you use only one antenna for the radio, the reception suffers ! With a good diversity adapter you can use the signal strength of both antennas for radio reception.
