Operating elements on the front
A large volume control is located in the middle of the front panel, which also functions as an on/off button. To the right of it there are two sensor buttons for jumping forward and backward to the next track. On the right edge there is a play button for DVDs, a USB port and a jack plug socket as audio output. To the left of the volume control there are sensor buttons for starting the hands-free car kit and the navigation system. On the left edge there are openings for the microphone, two MicroSD card slots and the reset button. As soon as you press the power button, the display will pop out of the housing. The sensor button on the far right has a double function. It can be used to tilt the whole screen into several positions.
Housing of the Xomax universal device
The car radio has a very high-quality visual effect and can be installed in really every vehicle thanks to its 1-DIN format. A simple installation frame and a narrow radio bezel are included in the scope of delivery. I think it’s good that you can only connect the really needed cables and that they are quite short. Because often there is not much space left behind the radio.
SIM card slots and USB ports
The two slots for microSD cards can accommodate microSD cards up to 128GB. With the three USB ports, you can even use media up to 2TB!
Connection options on the back of the device
When you install the radio, all you need to do is connect the ISO connector from the radio to the vehicle and connect the radio, GPS and WLAN antenna. I would then use the supplied connection cable to route the two USB sockets right into the glove compartment.
4G-Stick for Internet
At the back you can also connect a 4G stick and a USB data carrier. You don’t want to have something like that permanently plugged into the front of the device. The 4G mobile receiver always provides you with an Internet connection via WLAN. You can use it to navigate Google Maps on your car radio and listen to music via Spotify, YouTube and Internet radio. You can also check your emails and whatsapps. Unlike a hotspot on your smartphone, you don’t have to reconnect the radio every time.
Inputs of the Xomax universal device
A separate video input is available for connecting a Dashcam. Additionally there is a video input for a rear view camera. There is also a left and a right audio input. I recommend to use the external microphone from the scope of delivery to improve the hands-free system. If you like, you can connect the steering wheel remote control of the car with a separate CAN-BUS adapter.
Outputs of the Xomax universal device
Two RCA cables are also prepared for the output of video signals. Two headrest monitors can be connected to them. In addition, four audio outputs with RCA plugs are available for connecting an external amplifier. Even a subwoofer output is available!

Caution with cheap devices
Make absolutely sure that you do not buy a device with WinCE 6.0. With this operating system you cannot install apps. Furthermore, these radios only have a processor with 800 Mhz and 256MB RAM. This leads after some time to jerking in the operation and sometimes to dropouts during music playback. Because it is easy to mix up the devices, I have always provided you with links to good devices with Android 8.

Connections of the Xomax universal device
If your vehicle has two antennas, these are intended for diversity. If you use only one antenna for the radio, the reception will suffer! With a good diversity adapter you can use the signal strength of both antennas for radio reception.
