not sure what you mean by SPP but using a app called ARliberator i am able to get full control of my phone via the headunit. you do have to plug your phone in but it's not that much of a inconvenience, especially if your used to charging your phone in the car anyways. like anything else there are benefits and draw backs.
i recently ordered a HDMI stick anroid unit to see if i can use it as a dedicated device with the appradio, should get here in a couple weeks.
Has anyone been able to get the source code for the Linux kernel from Innotrends? They told me that they refuse to release the code even though it is GPL. CarIT also have refused. its a shame licenses cannot be enforced in China.
I just would like to point out to the Ca-Fi guys, it is pretty much the end of Christmas shopping in the US and the product that was supposed to launch in August still doesn't appear to be available here.
so far the ug007 connects up but getting it to connect was a bit tricky, also the touch doesn't calibrate correctly and touch events are backwards and seem to be restricted more towards the upper right hand side of the screen. also the resolution was too high and everything is really small. i attempted to correct the resolution via a app and soft bricked my device, until i can restore it there are several others on the appradioforums that are working on a similar setup.
for now unless the resolution issue can be figured out and the developer decides to support the units the best solution is to use a spare unactivated phone as a dedicated unit
So, I've been following this thread since it was created and was really excited about these units.
But my experience with CA-FI has left a bad taste, and I'll have to keep looking for alternatives.
On their forum, many users are asking about firmware updates. I was one of them, and was pushing to get some more info.
Instead of CA-FI working with their existing and potential customers, they have now banned me from their forum and facebook page. One of the topics I brought up was that Fryo was over 3 years old, and app developers are beginning to no longer support these versions. I brought up that there has to be some support for updates, and that CA-FI needs to be more actively involved in their forums (many questions about the units from owners go unanswered for months). They decided it was just easier to ban me and delete my posts.
I'm really bummed about this, I really want a integrated double din Android experience in the car. But I don't want to spend so much money on something that is years outdated before it even gets to the house :(
I bought the Foryou Adayo AN6B01 which was also a Froyo based head unit. It was OK, but never updated and took about 90 seconds from power up till it played music.
I pulled it after only 9 month of use, because of lack of updates, slow response, and being intermittent at reading 16Gb SD cards.
Ended up building a windows 8 based car PC.

What I would love to have, is a unit that has a version of Android that could be updated for at least 1 or 2 updates.
Can run most apps (nav, tunein, pandora, Torque, etc), and tether my internet from my phone. Built with quality hardware, and powerful enough to run the software.
Seems like we just can't get that! I'm willing to pay, but not for junk.
