Hey guys I am very excited about this project! I will be purchasing a starter unit this week and play around with it! I can not wait to be able to play retro gaming systems in my car! Anyone know if this is strong enough to run ps2 and n64 emulators?RyGuyHollywoodParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 4:47 amPost count: 11
So i did a little homework for you because im bored. Here it goes:
Upon the latest ytube video from “ETA PRIME” i see the processor being used is called a “MediaTek Helio P22”. Search for his video on ytube <“ETA PRIME CarDongle”> and Skip to the 8:25 mark for the specs.
After knowing the cpu now we can do some google foo to which i found some good information off a Reddit article titled “Anyone using a helio p22?” in the r/EmulationOnAndroid community section. Search for that as well, you’ll notice the very first reply is a link to a ytube video where supposedly he is running all different kinds of emulator systems/games of a p22. youtube.com/watch?v=M-JQh8oUQZk
Lastly it seems the MediaTek Helio P22 is comparable to a Snapdragon 625 with the Snapdragon beating it out by very little. You can see this by going to nanoreview.net/en/soc-compare and typing in both chips then viewing the compared results yourself.
For some reason this forum doesnt let me post the full links in these messages. Even when i try to do through the “Link” option tab it still doesnt post….

Now maybe someone would answer my question…
Will these be using my cell phones Wifi Hotspot Data while using this thing? I see it has to hook up to your Wifi Hotspot to be able to use it for netflix, ytube, gaming, etc. Problem is most cell phone plans give you a limited amount of hotspot data (5GB for me) before the speeds slow down to 2G which then it becomes unusable basically. So whats the rub here.TheNewCoderParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 1:04 pmPost count: 5
You are the G.O.A.T. thanks brother!TheNewCoderParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 1:05 pmPost count: 5
Thats a good question! I have a 2017 chevy malibu and my vehicle comes equiped with wifi/hotspot but its like 25 bucks i believe for 2 GB if im not mistaking!RyGuyHollywoodParticipantApril 20, 2021 at 6:13 pmPost count: 11
If i find out the answer, ill post back
EDIT: Just got confirmation on another thread indeed it does use your cellphones wifi hotspot data(which isnt very much unless you pay for more). Was hoping this wasnt the case, a borderline deal breaker for me. Its always something damnit, lol.
