Difference Between 1.0 And 2.0

If you are already owning the previous version or maybe you are confused if the latest version is worth trying out, then here’s the major difference between MMB Multimedia Box Version 1.0 and Version 2.0.

The latest version runs on the Android 11.0 operating system whereas the previous version used to work on Android 9.0. 

In fact, the GPS module has been upgraded to the latest version. Previously, users received an external GPS module but now, thanks to the upgrade, it comes with a built-in module, which makes the device not only convenient to install but also makes it work faster.

Moreover, the interface of MMB Multimedia Android OS Box 2.0 has been improved compared to the previous version. Additionally, there is an HDMI interface that makes the device more compatible with your car’s HDMI interface. 

You can simply get connected to several devices, at the same time, such as television, mouse, keyboard, projector, and any monitor. This feature ensures that the user’s on-road experience is hassle-free and more permissive.

Using Experience Of MMB Multimedia Box 2.0 

It’s been over a month since I’m using this product and so far, my experience has been absolutely fantastic. I have been traveling back to back for short and long drives. Considering the connectivity of this device, it barely takes a couple of seconds to connect as soon as I enter the car.

The device also comes with a split-screen feature, which helped me to look at Google Maps and watch videos on YouTube at the same time. If you are traveling with a partner or kids, then this feature will definitely keep them engaged for a long time and you can easily pay attention to your driving.

I have been using another CarPlay and it usually takes 30 seconds every time I go for a quick drive. However, MMB Multimedia Box 2.0 takes up to 7-15 seconds to connect with the car, which means you don’t need to wait if you need to go for a 10 minutes drive.

It is worth noting that if your car doesn’t have a touchscreen to control your display, then you need to get a wireless remote to select movies or series while watching Netflix or any other streaming app.

Let’s Check Out The Pros & Cons

Pros
* You can watch videos in HD quality
* It comes with one year warranty
* Users get a free lifetime upgrade online
* Connects quickly, great for a short drive
* Split-screen feature
* Compact design
* Worldwide shipping available

Cons

Conclusion

If you are looking forward to getting an upgrade, then MMB Multimedia Box 2.0 is the best option in the market at this moment. The device is fast to connect and also stays stable in a moving car. 

However, I would highly recommend you to check out the list of cars that are compatible with this device before ordering it. Although there is always an option to use this device with a USB cable.

The device is compatible with Audi (launched in 2016 and above), Land Rover (launched in 2019 and above), Mercedes Benz (launched in 2016 and above), Chevrolet (launched in 2018 and above), Ford (launched in 2017 and above), Toyota (launched in 2019 and above), Hyundai (launched in 2016 and above), and many more.
