The new Xtrons Hexa Core Android car radio with version 9.0 is now available. This flagship comes with 2 plus 4 cores. Such system is known under the name big.LITTLE architecture. The car radio even has 64 GB ROM and is clocked with up to 1.8 Ghz !

With the new processors and the new operating system you will get the highest performance and a quick system start. Bluetooth 5.0 is also built in. The radio has a display with 1024 x 600 pixels.

Xtrons Hexa Core in the design of the original device

Of course, Xtrons has based the new devices optically on the original devices. All buttons are illuminated and can be changed to any color. The case and the buttons feel valuable when pressed. All cable connections are neatly grouped on the back of the unit. It’s best to extend the USB ports as far as your glove compartment so that you can change the USB sticks easily. SD cards can be up to 64GB in size. USB sticks even up to 128 GB !

Other vehicle-specific devices

There are other car radios with Android 9.0 specifically for the vehicles of VW, Audi, BMW, Buick, Chrysler, Chevrolet, GMC, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hummer, Hyundai, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Opel, Porsche, Renault, Rover, Seat, Skoda, Suzuki and Toyota. The devices fit exactly into the dashboard with the adapted panel.  All you have to do is to plug in the new radio. Since all necessary adapters are already supplied, connecting is child’s play!

CAN bus adapter

With the included dual-channel CAN bus adapter, the Xtrons Android car radio also connects directly to the vehicle’s on-board computer. Open doors and the distance warning are visually displayed. You can adjust the air conditioning on the radio and you can also read the battery voltage, windscreen wiper water level, brakes, oil level and belts. Some information is also shown on the vehicle display in the dashboard.

Volume control knob

Fortunately, many radios have a volume control. The manufacturer has installed a DVD drive in most vehicle-specific devices and often also provides two slots for MicroSD cards and a USB connection. On some radios, the connectors are hidden under two dummy keys.

Die Rückseite des Radios
Rear of the Xtrons car radio with the modern FAKRA connectors and the HDMI cable

The new FAKRA connectors for GPS and radio are already being used here. They are suitable for high frequencies up to 3 Ghz. The blue plug (right center) is for the connection of the GPS receiver. This is used to receive the satellite signals for the navigation device. The white plug (bottom right) is for the radio. It already contains a supply voltage. Therefore you don’t need a phantom adapter anymore.

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

TIP: With this key sequence you get into recovery mode

1. it is best to go to a very quiet place.
2. press the mains switch until the unit is switched off. Then you can probably hear a “plop” very quietly. Now the device is really off.
3. now release the button again. You can probably hear a very quiet “plop” again when the device turns on.
4. Wait about 1 to 2 seconds and then hold the power switch permanently until the recovery menu appears.

Price/Performance ratio

Currently you can get the Xtrons PQ89UNVIP with Android 9.0 for cars from VW in the eBay online shop for 359,99 Euro. You won’t get more performance anywhere.

 

Alternative recommendation

You can get a cheaper radio with the Pumpkin VAO401 with Android 9.0 on eBay for 188 Euro. Nevertheless, the device already has the Android 9.0 operating system. With the Quad Core processor and 2 GB RAM as well as 32 GB ROM as user memory, the radio is a lot of fun.
I have already described it in an article:

Pumpkin Universal Device with Android 9.0 on eBay

Conclusion

The Xtrons Hexa Core has extremely high performance and can be used as a navigation device, hands-free system and mobile music collection. I award a total of 4.9 out of 5 stars. The seller xtrons-store has received 162 positive, 0 neutral and 3 negative ratings in the last 12 months.
