I'm looking for a 9" or larger Android Head Unit with the following features:
No lags, so a 4GB RAM spec is preferred
WiFi, Bluetooth, SIM connectivity
TPMS, DVR, reverse sensor, 360° Camera support
100% working Steering Wheel Control
Climate control/cruise control compatibility preferred
Ability to make and receive calls with good clarity
2 USB Ports
I'm not an audiophile, so not very particular about specs related to music
Unit must be reliable; preferably last the vehicle's lifetime
Installer recommended Geesonic. An online search showed Woodman and Hypersonic. I contacted 2 numbers of Hypersonic people, and one of their Distributors in Chennai, and asked for their product brochures/features/specs multiple times. None of them provided any info. They only sent a couple of pictures of the Unit installed in different cars. Woodman guy was very very helpful. He answered all my questions, and replied to my messages even during the night.
Can anyone using any of the above brands give me your valuable (long-term) feedback? Is there any other reliable brand that you've been using, and that fulfills my requirements? The underlined requirements are mandatory.

Have sent you logo files. Did you manage to install it?
Have put it as boot logo and it looks awesome (to me at least) in full screen when HU boots.
Yes Have got the files. But I have went for the second option as you suggested. Added family Photos along with VW logo and it worked great Thanks for your help. Appreciated!!

I would recommend not to use this "Power off after ACC off" option unless this would gracefully shutdown android OS. otherwise this may gradually corrupt the system partition and in-turn corrupt android OS. If you are not going to take the car for long time you may go for shut down after 24/44 hours. That way you may reduce number of hard shutdowns.
Else can you please confirm me from your sources that "Power off after ACC off" option will shutdown android OS in the head-unit gracefully?

Using Woodman Xtreme 3.0 for more than 4 months now. Quick summary based on my experience so far:
- UI is faster than other Android HUs with similar specs
- Steering wheel controls work good. No issues seen.
- Audio output is good. However at higher levels it is distorted. I usually don't listen to audio at such high levels, so it is not a deal breaker for me.
- Maps takes a bit of time to load, still faster than other Android HUs with similar specs. For me this was the key deciding factor.
- For minor niggles and clarifications their customer care has been really fast to address all the queries
Hope this helps in your decision.
