Wrong plugs and sockets supplied.

Help when fitting a universal Single DIN or Double Android Headunit. ISO adaptors to convert factory leads to the Android standard connectors may be required

Wrong plugs and sockets supplied.

The double DIN Android came with two rectangular plugs that don't fit anything in the car.

The wrong plugs have been supplied with the Android car stereo; what is the solution?

Re: Wrong plugs and sockets supplied.

With each of the universally fitting Android car stereos, you either get a bunch of wires with no plugs or a pair of ISO plugs.

These ISO plugs are standard. Luckily, there are adaptors to convert these standard ISO connectors to the ones your car needs.

Identify your car's make and model and look at the leads in the existing stereo.

It would be good if you had a connector that can interface with the ISO plug (an ISO socket) and the opposite (male/female) of your vehicle plug(s).

Look for the corresponding ISO socket - to the 'your make of car' adaptor on Amazon.


The other option, which may be useful, is to bypass the supplied cable and purchase a new '16 pin pioneer' to 'your car make' type of plug.

This should connect directly to the back of most universal Android headunits that are not supplied with the correct plugs.

Double-check the look and pin count of the plugs from the listing and check the descriptions.
