I am now considering this head unit (after the Maxca copy at half the price didn't work in my 2020, see my thread). I've sent them a message via eBay about 2020 fitment and am waiting for a reply. Does anyone have a link to the Aliexpress webpage to buy?

I considered that but the wiring diagrams shown here are for the 2019 and it looks like the 2020 USA model may have different pin outs. The Maxca is not near as advanced as the Dasaita either, the features are very very basic.

I ordered the Dasaita head unit today ($497), they said to use CB014 for the 2020 year model. I assume that's the CANBUS. Anyway, it should be here in a few weeks or a month. I already don't expect everything to work out of the box but that would be nice though.

Today I got the radio and installed it. It got here in 10 days from China. It's very easy to install. I got everything to work except the reverse camera. Also, the Lane Watch camera comes on for right turns and my car, an LX, doesn't have this feature. So, I have to figure out a way to turn that off. I'm very satisfied although it was a bit expensive at almost $500 for a lot of features that I have no use for them. I did this only for the Apple CarPlay, which does work both wired and wireless.

NOTE: 2020 (USA) HR-V LX

I managed to make it work somehow after doing some rewiring and tinkering with canbus settings. Factory camera now works as advertised with 4 angles now as opposed to 3 angles using factory headunit.
Hello, can you be more specific about how you got the rear camera to work in your 2020 please. I installed mine today and everything works except the reverse camera.

While waiting for the remedy to the rear camera not working I did the below to turn it off because I got tired of seeing the black screen in reverse.

settings > car > factory settings > 126 (password) > other > prohibit reverse > disable

Okay, after two months my biggest complaint is that a lot of times (at least 3 to 5 times a week) the CarPlay does not connect and the only thing to do is turn the car off and restart it to reboot the head unit. Also, at least once a week it makes a "pop" sound in the speakers when first turned on. It did actually crash one time but that was on the first day when I was setting it up and was really buttoning it fast so that was probably my fault. Other than that no other problems, except (see next post)...

I can't get the head unit to connect to Wi-Fi. It finds the network and connects but then immediately turns Wi-Fi off (the password is correct). I've tried different networks and even the hot spot on my phone and the same thing happens. Any advice is appreciated. My modem is CenturyLink, router is Linksys and phone is Apple.

I found out today that this is an Android PX6 head unit (8, 9 or 10 inch), that helps with searching for problems and help.

The video works great, I’ve got 200 movies on a USB drive and it’s possible to connect to YouTube and Netflix if you have a Wi-Fi connection. It’s good to have when you’re sitting in a line waiting for a long time or parked to relax or eat.

Three months after the sale, after trying various things to get the reverse camera working, I sent a message to Dasaita on the Aliexpress website. They sent me a different wiring harness (XC-2115-0021 Civic) and I replaced the previous wiring harness (XC-2115-0201 Crider) but the CANBUS (HD-SS-06C Simplesoft) remained the same. Now the reverse camera is working along with everything else. I also had to change the CANBUS factory setting from "21 CRIDER" to "7 CIVIC and CRV". I should have contacted them sooner. I highly suggest buying from the official Dasaita store on the Aliexpress website for the customer support message center.

Hello. First off, I can't really compare it to the stock head unit because I only had that one for 6 weeks and don't even remember it. The LX, as you know, doesn't come with CarPlay and that is the reason I chose to get this head unit. I've had it installed for exactly 4 months today and have never had an issue with seeing it at day or night and I have very poor vision. I can tell you that it does not disappear in direct sunlight, even when it's very bright sun glare the screen is fine. Now, as far as to dim it for night, CarPlay does that automatically for me (changes the screen from white to black) and again there are no issues. Please tell me where the dim knob on the dash is located and I will test that for you.

I found the knob in my owner’s manual, it does not control the lights on the head unit. However, the brightness icon is right up front on the screen and easy to adjust the brightness. Here are pictures, taken in direct afternoon sunlight, and you can see that the screen is very visible even with only half of the brightness adjusted up.

What I suggest is that you send your year model and a picture of the back of your factory head unit connections to them and they can match it up. I do know that the connections were up to 2018 and then changed from 2019 and up. Dasaita sells on Aliexpress, eBay and Amazon, I chose them because they had the best feedback rating over the other aftermarket head unit suppliers and at half the price. Make sure that you buy it directly from them for the great customer service. I got a faster response from them to my messages on Aliexpress, so that's why I bought it on that website. Lastly, in reference to the light dimmer, when the headlights are turned on the head unit lights do dim.

Well, for those taking notes, I have found out how to double the number of movies from 200 to nearly 400 on the 128 gb USB drive. All that I did was change the codec from MPEG to XVID and the file size was cut in half. It did sacrifice some quality but I'm going for quantity not quality for this purpose. The file format is AVI, MP4 does play also but it will increase the file size. Also, the DIVX and H.264 codec will not play on this head unit. Lastly, I installed the Movies Anywhere app and it does let me play my (almost 2,000) Apple iTunes movies on the head unit when connected to Wi-Fi. I have not tried a larger capacity USB drive yet.

My car (LX) didn't have a second blank USB space, it only has a single 1.0A plug. The 1.0A is for data only because at least 1.5A is needed to charge the phone. So, to answer your question, I did nothing with the second one because I had no where to put it. In fact, it's still in the box in case I need it in the future. I was going to install a dual USB plug from an EX and use one USB port to charge my phone and the other for data (in my case a USB thumb drive with movies) but I found that even with the Dasaita head unit the 1.0A plug does not charge my phone. My option was as pictured, I use the USB port for my thumb drive and the cigarette lighter for a charger.
