This is the first part of my Dasaita VIVID 10.2″ Android Head Unit Installed in a Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk7 video. Part 2 will be coming next week, where I go over more of the system and its integration, custom launchers and the pros and cons of doing the installation.

In this first part, I wanted to cover my installation journey before demoing the functionality and interaction with the Golf system. This will be coming in Part 2, next week. You can catch my main review video here → https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7WRemWWt-8 where I go over most of the stereo’s functions in my demo pod.
Using the Dasaita VIVID in my demo pod gave me enough reassurance to swap out my 4-5-year-old Alpine X902D-G7 stereo head unit in favour of this Android 10 head unit.
At the end of the installation, I am very happy with how it turned out, its speed, how it sounds and how it functions overall. There have been a few compromises, and I will go over this in part 2.
