Pumpkin Head Unit Review (With Video)
If you are thinking of adding an Android car stereo to your car you may have come across the popular Pumpkin Head Unit on Amazon. I have been using this system for over a year now so I decided to write a review about it. Pumpkin create head units for Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, VW, Audi, Ford, Vauxhall and Nissan. Most of the units on Amazon had 5-star reviews so I decided to buy one for my BMW E46. Keep reading to find out how I got on.
Delivery & Service
I ordered the Pumpkin Head Unit for my BMW E46 from Amazon on the 19th of July and it was delivered the very next day to my office. It came with good packaging and a customer service confirmation email from Auto Pumpkin themselves providing information about warranty and the complaints procedure. In the box, there was the head unit, a manual, warranty documents and a lot of cables which scared me at first but during installation, which I did myself, the cables were not an issue as it was simply a plug-and-play installation.
Installation of the unit was quite straightforward. It would have helped if Pumpkin had a video on YouTube with the full installation procedure but the paper manual was sufficient enough. All the video and audio cables were colour coded and designed specifically for their slots so there was no chance of getting them mixed up. It was simply a plug-and-play installation and my unit came with a GPS receiver and Microphone. After installation, I simply screwed the unit in, fitted the trim back and turned the car on and it worked straightaway.
I have now been using the system for over a year now and it has worked very nicely. I downloaded Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music, Google Chrome and they all worked like a charm. The head unit comes with an Amplifier app which allows you to override your default sound settings and add some more bass to your music. Below is a video showing me using the head unit.
- Quality Product with great performance.
- Great Customer Service with Quick response times.
- Quick Delivery.
- Great App Selection From Google Play
- Wide Choice of Themes to choose from
- Great Audio
- Default theme is not very exciting (You can download one you like from the app store)
- Microphone provided is adequate but could be better
The Pumpkin Head Unit is a great product for you if you want to add multimedia into your vehicle. It comes with great features such as GPS capability and Microphone and you can even add a reversing camera from Pumpkin to your car and hook it up to the head unit. They make head units for Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, VW, Audi, Ford, Vauxhall and Nissan.
