Pumpkin AA0437B 2 Din Android Head Unit

Pumpkin Android 2 Din head units have been talked about, and reviewed on this website in the past. That review was about the CN01-03302B-02A model. And overall, it was a decent car stereo / Android computer for the price. Though some people wouldn't agree, as the reviews overall are a big mixture of good and bad.

The latest Pumpkin AA0437B is more of the same, only much more updated. Packing an Octa Core Processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage space, and one of the latest Android operating systems (Android 9.0 - Pie), it's much more than just a music system. Be aware: Some Pumpkin models are universal (fit many car makes and models), while others are for a specific make of vehicle.

Over time, it's become obvious that many Android multimedia stereos that are not made by the top brands like Kenwood, Pioneer and Sony are not very well made and don't really last that long. They seem to either develop problems, or are just temperamental and poor quality from the start. There are so many new models from unknown brands that have terrible user feedback and review scores that its hard to actually recommend a good one these days. However, there are two double din stereos that do have very good review scores and appear to be the best of the bunch currently doing the rounds online. One is for mainly Vauxhall vehicles, and the other is universal. Find out more about them below.

Pumpkin AA0437B Double Din Shortcomings

When it comes to Android stereos in general, so many other them are not an all-in-one solution. To really use many other features the manufacturers promise, most require additional leads and antenna's that make the whole process a bit messy. The Pumpkin AA0437B is no exception. But anyone who wants as many features as Android based stereos now provide should expect, or at least be willing to sacrifice all the extra leads and antenna's involved, and longer set-up process, in order to have this level of technology at their disposal.

Also worth noting is the price. This unit is not cheap. And for this type of money there is a lot of choice out there, a lot of them for the same price are admittedly not as advanced in terms of having their own fully fledged on-board Operating system, but they are offered by some of the top stereo brands, including Pioneer, Sony, Kenwood and JVC. Furthermore, with the new Android Auto / Apple CarPlay updates, be sure to shop around before making your decision of what aftermarket stereo to buy.
