VF V8 Calais
It is ok for a $250 head unit. It is 2 years old now.
- Came with reversing camera included.
-The Bluetooth connection app, which looks exactly like the one in the video, is a bit fiddly and some times it has to be hard reseted to connect to the phone. (little pin hole in front of the unit)
- It is quite slow , I supposed the hardware is outdated now.

It is far from perfect but I would have it anytime over the Mylink , if it could integrate to the VF. Ah and if it has a reasonable price. $1000 bucks for a unknown brand ,no way . I am happy to use my phone + Mylink instead.
Probably a bit harsh calling it unknown. The company has been in the US for a fair time, has rave reviews. This isnt just off the shelf. The software has been custom engineered to work with the VF, something only a $3000 Alpine can do...with less features and also no HUD integration. This has DAB+, Multiple GPS apps, Carplay (now wireless option), reverse camera integration with moving lines (I have to pay to get this added to my S1 Calais according to Holden) and the ability to install a nice app to make it look pretty good. I will await peoples reviews, but all their previous models have had 1000's of rave reviews. I have my fingers crossed. I agree it would be nice if they released the model of the head unit hey have modified, but I understand why they wouldn't as well.

I agree with you, it was a bit harsh of my part. I was actually very happy with the quality for the price I paid.

The Alpine model is stupidly expensive but at least the sound quality I am sure will be good. Still doesn’t justify the price. Maybe if you are listening to audio DVD recorded at 24bits /192khz
and have the best speakers money can buy it would get close to make sense.

I just think the price of the Eonon one should be around 500 bucks. Reverse engineering the mylink and Writing the software should take one month with someone working full time. Half of the info is on the service manual. However it is understandable they will not sell that many when compared with other car specific head units they make. So they have to mark up the price a bit .

If I had a spare 1000 I would buy. But any spare change is going to the engine in my case.

For me the MyLink is pretty much the only part of the car I don’t like. In fact I hate it.
Bluetooth never reliably worked, so we have an iPod plugged in via USB, only using Spotify.
Randomly it won’t recognise the iPod, so spend a few minutes reconnecting.
That means we don’t get any of the hands free phone features from our phones.
Maps so out of date we don’t use the navigation.

If the new unit does the following I’m 100% sold
Reversing camera, including fast start up as we need it to back out of our garage and driveway.
Bluetooth
Apple CarPlay or reliable way to get Spotify to play
Maps and navigation
Better sound equaliser (nice to have, but this really helps in a car set up)
