If you are thinking about purchasing a 2DIN car radio, but have not yet decided on the choice, in this case, my today’s selection will come in handy. Plus, a wide range of products in this category on AliExpress can easily confuse you, so I suggest that you study with me the differences between each of the presented models, find out what the advantages and disadvantages are. Let me explain what the 2DIN standard means. This is the size of the hole in the car for the car radio, which corresponds to the parameters of 18 × 10 cm, that is, in comparison with 1DIN models, the width of the two-din radio will be twice as large, due to the touch screen and other cool «chips».

In the first place of our selection is a car radio that complies with the 2 DIN standard, there is support for Mirror Link. The price of the model is quite affordable. If desired, you can connect a smartphone to the gadget (via Bluetooth), as well as 2 cameras: rear and front view. It is equipped with ordinary functions — an FM receiver, a player in audio and video formats. The disadvantages of the model are not very convenient volume control and some difficulties in the process of installing the radio directly into the car. Sound quality is average. In general, a good gadget, I think it is worth taking a closer look at it.

The fourth place in our selection is occupied by a car radio with a display with a diagonal of 7 inches and a resolution of 1280 × 800. It works without lags, it is installed, by the way, also without problems. But in any case, I recommend using the instructions that come with the radio. Wires are also included. The chip of the model is a remote control that is built into the steering wheel, with its help the volume level is adjusted and the audio tracks are scrolled through. Hardware performance is excellent, 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. There is support for the Google Play Store, which will allow you to install many applications on your device.
