Review

The ATOTO A6 is a among the best head unit for car with a Full HD touchscreen display. It runs on an Android system with a wide variety of built-in technologies and apps. It acts as an alternative to the Android Auto feature found in new cars’ systems.

Despite not having a CD/DVD player, this car stereo offers other options to access your media files. It can read Micro-SD cards through the SD slot. It also has 3 USB ports and an AUX input to connect flash drives and different media devices.

With its dual Bluetooth chips, the receiver offers wireless connectivity for 3 devices simultaneously, one for audio and two for data communication. The first Bluetooth chip is responsible for hands-free calling and audio streaming functionalities, while the second chip allows internet tethering and data transfer.

Using the Easy-connect app, you can cast your phone screen onto the stereo’s display via USB or WiFi. You can also connect your Android smartphone to easily access your media files, make calls or send texts.

In addition to touchscreen and steering wheel controls, the receiver supports hand gesture recognition to allow control of the system without the need to press or touch anything. You can use it to perform a variety of operations including volume and playback control.

The backup camera input supports a rear-view camera to make parking easy. Two additional video inputs are also included to allow you to connect two more cameras for additional visibility.
