Wow --- You can't ask for a better review than that! Ray fancy a trip to NYC ;-) ?Review of the 10.25 Android Screen for my 2015 Supercharged Range Rover (L405) purchased via Android Aftershock.
All - I thought I would share a little about my experience so far after purchasing and installing this unit in my 2015 Range Rover. I was sick and tired of the painful and slow OEM head unit and have been longing for CarPlay for maps (both Apple and Google) and Spotify. Those were my top priorities. Here is what I have to share almost one week into the new unit:
1) Android Aftershock - I purchased this via their website using the discount code from this forum. Ray is the owner and you could not ask for a better person to work with to answer your questions and make sure you are getting the right product for your vehicle. Ray is the real deal and genuinely is excited to help deliver this long sought after functionality in these beautiful vehicles. It's worth noting too that Ray is a veteran and if you even remotely follow any of these threads he is helping everyone get the best use of their units.
2) Installation - I live in Los Angeles and worked with Ray to come directly to him for installation in Indio. Yes, I drove 2+ hours but I was convinced he would be the best person to do it and the experience was exceptional. His workspace was spotless and he worked quickly and carefully to install the new unit. He had super comfortable space for me to work while waiting. He made sure every detail was to my liking and even followed up the next day to make sure I was happy and if I had any questions.
3) Usage - my 2-hour drive back to LA was a great experience using CarPlay because it worked wonderfully. I had maps, music and did 3 conference calls easily navigating the device and had no issues. Ray had given me a full walk through before departing so there were no concerns. The back up camera works like usual. The audio is still very crisp and clear and with no problems.
4) Start-up time from ignition - I have read a few posts commenting on the longer than expected start up time of the unit from turn over the ignition. Personally, this is not an issue to me. It feels marginally longer but frankly, I don't care. I have a beautiful, modern interface that works to my liking and brings my 2015 vehicle into the modern age. Every time I watch it boot up I smile because I know what is coming - a great driving experience.
I'll post more soon and share some pics but wanted to get this up for everyone. I can't say enough about Ray and the great care he takes to make sure everyone is happy. If I had any concerns about opening up my dashboard and installing something - he made it all disappear wtih his professionalism and genuine care.
