    2004 Range Rover L322 Stereo Upgrade?

    Hello all, I'm new to the site and just recently got my first range rover. Any help would be much appreciated!

    I am looking to upgrade from the stock sat/nav screen. I have read several threads about installation but moreso looking for suggestions on what type of units I should look for. I have read about the Eonon 7" unit, the Dynavin, and the Pioneer NEX, any other suggestions or links for compatible units?

    Re: 2004 Range Rover L322 Stereo Upgrade?

    I too am new to this site with a newly purchased 2004 Range Rover L322 looking to upgrade my stereo. I normally use Crutchfield for my car stereo upgrades, but they don't have any information on Range Rovers. I will never buy a system with built in navigation, my Infiniti, Mercedes and Ford truck all came with factory nav and I won't spend $200 each year to upgrade to the latest DVD every year.

    Does yours have the Harmon/Kardon Logic 7 system? Mine does and it actually sounds pretty decent with 14 year old speakers. I think for now I'll keep the factory amp and speakers and just upgrade the head unit with an Android device. I've had a proprietary Kenwood system before, and they dropped all support.

    I just bought the GA9201A (with extension cable assy A0577) from Eonon. Total cost with shipping was $409.

    I hope to install in the next couple weeks. I'll lose the analog clock, can't recall the last time I actually read it so I don't think I'll miss it. There's a Youtube video out there on a prior model (android version 6), it looks like it installs well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wScLS-iv_LE

    Map updates are not created by the manufacturers of the cars. Maps are produced by a couple of large mapping companies and offered to car makers under contract and licensing.

    Map updates are not available every year either... never have been. Map updates average out to every 2 or 3 years.

    DVDs have not been used by mapping companies for quite awhile. LR ditched DVDs then had a brief period of direct to harddrive updates. They then followed industry standard of USB updates. Yes there are also some over the air update car companies out there but it is not a standard yet.

    That looks like an awesome unit! I really like the fact that they have the extension cable that's plug and play. It hits all my desires, hands free and streaming Bluetooth, backup camera, dash camera, steering wheel control interface, Android 8.0... You'll have to update this thread when you've installed the unit.

    I'll try to get some photos and details. I'm curious how difficult it will be to hide the cable assembly... I hope it's all plug and play. I've been emailing back and forth with the customer service and they said they couldn't guarantee it would work 100%, but I'm hopeful. Worst case... I'll have to buy a BMW to put my stereo in...

    Physically it's in. Electrically I have some work to do. I think I bought the wrong wiring harness. I ordered another and will look through Rave to see if I can figure it out. I also contacted them so we will see. I also have the Logic 7 system. I have some learning to do...

    I had to do some manipulation to get this to fit physically... not hard. I have some photos if anyone needs them.

    Thanks for the update. I also own a 2004 L322 with the Logic 7 system. I am also looking to upgrade to the Eonon GA9201A. Did you get the system working? Did you need the A0579 extended harness instead of the A0577?

    I would really appreciate any advice you have installing the system. Thanks in advance for the info.

    I still haven't tried it yet. I emailed them and they said the A0577 should work, so we will see. I have the A0579 on order just encase. Hopefully I'll get to it by Saturday.

    Finished the install today. Wasn't hard because the A0577 cable worked fine. Also, all my speakers work and the sound is great! I have the logic 7 system and I'm not sure if the amps are working, but it's so LOUD I can't imagine they aren't working. I hooked up the OBDII Bluetooth dongle and the Torque works perfect. I put some songs on a microSD and they sound great. Turned my phone into a hotspot... steering controls work by default. I did have to change bootup logo from BMW to Land Rover, the Land Rover logo is already built in... settings->additional car setting->enter password "8888" -> change logo... or put on a custom logo from you SD card. All the controls on the dashboard still works, like miles to empty. I don't think the analog clock will work, but I didn't unplug my battery when I installed everything so it's still set fine. I installed Sygic, which supports offline maps and the included GPS sensor. Overall, if you are not trying to maintain the original feel, I highly recommend this update.

    Not sure this qualifies as "a while," but so far so good.
