More than a car stereo – Install Android Apps,play music online, run online map & get real-time traffic, connect various external devices to expand functions


S8 Ultra provides 4 Methods for Internet Access – Wi-Fi/BT/USB Tethering & builtin 4G Cellular Modem:

1). Phone’s cellular data

  • S8 allows users to connect to the phone’s hotspot via 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz WiFi or Bluetooth tethering for internet access.
  • Running online maps or streaming music online on Android car stereo do not need high bandwidth(less than 200kb/s), Bluetooth tethering connection is capable of dealing with such demand.
  • Compared with WiFi connection, Bluetooth tethering has lower power consumption, so phone battery will last much longer while Bluetooth tethering is enabled;
  • WiFi connection is easier as it requires only one step – enable your phone’s WLAN hotspot, and WiFi connection is finished within 2-4s; Bluetooth connection requires 2 – 3 steps;
  • USB network tethering is a newly introduced option by ATOTO, and it allows users to share phone data with S8 via USB connection. This could help save phone battery, or even increase slightly; You only need to run the specific EasyConnect application in the background;

2). Built-in 4G Cellular Modem

  • There is a SIM card slot with the unit, and it only takes Nano size. SIM with Data Plan is not included in the product package.
  • The built-in 4G LTE modem module works with frequency bands supported by most carriers. Frequency Bands Supported are – 2G (GSM 850, GSM900, GSM1900); 3G WCDMA (B1, B2, B4, B5, B8); 4G LTE (B1, B2, B4, B5, B7, B8, B12, B13, B17, B19, B25, B26, B38, B41);
  • Only carriers who support bands listed above can allow S8 to access the network. Even if the frequency bands in the above list are supported, the operator’s communication base station does not cover the places your vehicle stays, S8 will not be able to access it.
  • You can visit Wikipedia to learn more about LTE bands supported by local carriers. International buyers need to check the frequency bands compatibility with your local carriers/operators before placing order.

Install countless Android apps from Google Play Store

  • More than 1000 apps from Google Play Store have been tested installable on ATOTO S8 Series, especially media/entertainment apps and navigation apps in the category of “Auto & Vehicles”. Very few app developers may specify devices/system environments that are allowed to install or run their apps, which results in the inability to install or run on any Android car stereos. Netflix is the case;

Versatile Connectivity – The ATOTO S8 Ultra has lots of inputs & outputs customized for working better in a vehicle

  • Connect to a specific USB On dash 1080P DVR camera for video preview & playback;
  • Connect to a specific ATOTO USB TPMS tire pressure monitor system. When one or more tires are under-inflated, it will pop up a prompt warning on the S8 screen, and even emit a prompt tone as a reminder;
  • Connect to a rearview camera with CVBS & HD video signal out for safe parking;
  • Connect to your Android / iOS smartphone via USB/ WiFi and using EasyConnection to cast what’s displayed on the phone to S8’s screen;
  • Connect to your iOS phone via USB or Bluetooth for running wired or wireless CarPlay, Android Auto only works with the wired USB connection, which seamlessly integrates your smartphone (iPhone & Android) with the S8’s built-in display and allow you to make phone calls, access your music, send and receive messages, get directions.
  • Connect to an OBD II Diagnostic Scanner /Engine Code Reader via Bluetooth; Compared with single Bluetooth, dual Bluetooth makes communication tasks between multiple Bluetooth connections more balanced and stable.
  • Plug the phone into the dedicated QC 3.0 interface, S8 will charge the phone battery quickly.
  • Connect to headrest monitors using ATOTO USB Video Output Adaptor (AC-AHV68: USB to HDMI adaptor; AC-AHV48: USB To RCA adaptor; Both are sold separately), and what is displayed on S8 can be synchronized to headrest monitors.

Dual Bluetooth chips inside, connect to more Bluetooth-based devices, customized Qualcomm Bluetooth 5.0 with aptX HD audio codec and voice assistant interface

  • The Bluetooth 1 works as Bluetooth hands-free (call/answer) with A2DP streaming audio feature. Contacts/recent records will be synchronized once the smartphone is connected. Supports “Quick Search” and “Add to Favorites” for quick dialing!
  • Built-in Noise Cancellation Technology to help suppress background noise and echo feedback in a hands-free call. You don’t have to yell at the car stereo to talk with the other one.
  • ATOTO S8 (Gen2) Ultra applies Qualcomm aptX HD codec, which was designed to answer the growing demand for high-resolution audio. This enhanced codec supports 24-bit music quality over Bluetooth. This means listeners can hear even the smallest details in their music. Even though the average Bluetooth streaming solution is enough for the majority, for these hypercritical people (who are more obsessed with HD audio quality), there is still regret. Now, enjoy wireless HD audio easily with S8;
  • aptX Low Latency audio delivers sound in sync with what’s on-screen, reduces delay, and improves the end-to-end speed of the audio transmission (from 120ms to 40ms!), resulting in high quality, synchronized sound, so you never miss a beat.
  • The aptX HD feature requires the phone side also to support Bluetooth aptX HD to perform correctly; Users can check this on Qualcomm aptX HD official
  • The Bluetooth 2 not only works as Bluetooth tethering internet but also allows to connect to Bluetooth gamepad(for kids in rear seats), Bluetooth OBD2, Bluetooth TPMS, etc.;
  • Because of dual Bluetooth inside, the system allows user to connect up to 3 devices simultaneously (one for audio, two for data communication).
  • The customized Bluetooth in S8 allows to wake up the phone’s voice assistant (Siri, Google Assistant) via Bluetooth connection. So users can use a specific button on the screen, steering wheel or ATOTO AC-44F5 wireless remote to send messages, make calls, and control music with your voice. Much safer, much convenient;

Latest QLED Display Screen, the Great Viewing Experience

*ATOTO S8G2A78UL applies 1024*600 QLED display screen, which significantly improves the viewing experience. QLED is a type of LED-backlit LCD technology that uses a quantum dot enhancement film layer to improve the LED backlighting, which can produce pure monochromatic red, green, and blue light. So it greatly improves the color effect and can provide ultra-clear and vivid picture quality. It also inherits the advantages of 178° full-viewing angle & high contrast of the IPS-LCD;

*There is a Gallery Playback option in the system for users to put memorable photos in the specified gallery folder and let them autoplay on S8’s 7-inch HD screen with only a tap.

More Options to Operate & Control the S8 – Easy Operation to Ensure Safe Driving

*Safe driving has been one of the top concerns for every driver.

*The Hand Gesture recognition feature allows users to access certain apps, skip tracks, adjust volume, and so on easily with different hand gestures. A proficient operation can be done without keeping the eyes on the car stereo; There are 24 options that can be programmed for being controlled by 9 gesture;

*It enables six touch gestures that support two-finger / three-finger tap on screen to enter multi-task menu quickly, switch between preset 9 EQ modes, adjust the screen brightness, etc., which improve operation safety during driving.

*Newly added SCVC feature (Speed Compensated Volume Control)- automatically adjusts your sound system’s volume as your speed changes, to adjust for road and wind noise (applicable in 50mph or up. Software algorithms based on GPS positioning).

DSP with Time Correction & Ultra Powerful Pre-Amplifier

Built-in Digital Signal Processor for tailored audio output

*A DSP uses a microcontroller that is designed specifically to manipulate audio signals in the digital domain. It allows you to set precise equalization, signal delay (aka Time Correction or Time Alignment), bass boost, and bass filter (LFP);

Ultra-powerful Toshiba Pre-amplifier IC, Outstanding Listening Experience

*The S8 Ultra applies a much more powerful Toshiba preset amplifier, which comes with 4×49 Watts BTL Max output & 4x29w RMS output. With the conditions of non-distorted audio amplifying & delivering requirements, the RMS 29w power output lets user experience more powerful, more natural music/audio; It can drive 2Ω – 8Ω door speakers.

Highest Compatibility For Vehicle Fit/Installation

*Currently, the front panel of a 7-inch aftermarket car stereo has various sizes (178mmx100mm, 178mmx102mm,180mmx102). However, most mounting dash frame adapter suppliers (Metra, Scosche, PAC, etc.) mainly provides 174mmx98mm dash opening, lots of users encountered issues /hassles during installation. ATOTO S8 universal double din models use size 192mmx97mm, and can fit them perfectly, no trimming/cutting job needed!

*This S8 model is a universal double din car stereo, and the extra accessories required to finish installation in a specific vehicle are not included, and it is the buyer’s responsibility to prepare for them (if applicable). The accessories that may be involved include (but are not limited to) dash frame kit, wiring harness, radio antenna adapter, data interface,etc.

HD 720P Rearview Video Display with Virtual Surround View Parking (Single-camera Based) & Live Rear View Features

*ATOTO S8 works with a specific HD camera to show HD 720P rearview video quality.

*S8 Ultra has integrated a special Panoramic Image Stitching algorithm that allows the processing of the image sent from a specific rearview camera and rebuilds a dynamic, virtual, but almost same-size ratio surroundings view. It is quite helpful for drivers to park large vehicles (full-size sedan/SUV, van, light trucks) in a narrow or small space.

*Live RearView (LRV) Feature – Access Rearview even if vehicle in moving ahead. This could remove obstructions of passengers, headrests and the vehicle’s roof and rear pillars, increasing field of view (the lanes behind and traditional blind-spots).

*The specified backup camera (AC-HD03LR) for Virtual Surround View parking & Live RearView is sold separately.

Personal Privacy Protection without Sacrificing Convenience

In order to protect Google /Facebook & other SNS accounts from being accessed, S8 has a screen lock option for users to lock the screen when the car (car stereo) is not in their control (Valet Parking, or vehicle taken by others). An additional option (Unlock with Bluetooth) allows users to unlock S8 screen once phone Bluetooth is connected automatically. You do not have to input the password manually to unlock the screen. Now, all you need to lock or unlock your S8 is just walk out of its Bluetooth range.

    The head unit is pretty good. I am still getting familiar with the interface but it works very well. The one thing that impressed me the most is that the bluetooth phone interface mic appears to be better than anything else I have used in my noisy 1 ton truck. The sound quality and noise cancelling aspect is fantastic. Before I purchased the unit when I used a bluetooth headset or my speakerphone, people on the other end of the line stated that couldn’t hear me due to the background noise. With the new head unit integrated mic at the top of the screen, people on the other end state it sounds like the phone is up to my ear and background noise is minimal. I was not expecting that at all.

  2. Honest reviews

    First of all, I reached out to the customer service team via Facebook messenger with a few questions and received top notch replies and support. Install instructions are sufficient. The unit comes with all sorts of accessories and functions. The Android interface is very user friendly. There are so many features that it is going to take time to figure out which ones are the best. It has wireless Apple Car play which works very well. I am honestly thinking that just the stereo with a Bluetooth connection is better than the Car play though. With the Play store on the unit, you can get more apps and features on the stereo outside of Car play, so using Car play actually limits the amount of features you can access. The touch screen is top notch, and it looks great! The first time the stereo is powered up after install or disconnecting the battery it takes about thirty seconds to come on. After that it comes on instantly when the vehicle is turned on. The unit works with third party accessories however, I am personally looking forward to moving over to more ATOTO devices. I drive a dual rear wheel truck and the $12 back up camera looks good, but I want to try the wide-angle lens that ATOTO offers. I will eventually install a front facing camera also since this unit is able to loop record the footage. It uses Bluetooth from your phone to access the internet which works well. The gesture control is great. It allows me to do things that would typically take looking at the radio and finding the right button or knob to do like volume adjustment or changing the channel. With the gesture control on this unit, I feel it is actually better than steering wheel controls. This unit made my 18-year-old truck feel like a brand-new ride. I really can’t say enough about how much I like this radio.

    I wanted to replace the radio in my motorhome as it was mostly useless to me. Could not read the display, sounded bad so it was rarely turned on. Could not even see the time on it. Was going to replace with a standard double DIN radio but then I discovered the Android head unit option.Did some research and decided on the Atoto S8 10.1″ model based on the reviews of the Atoto products and the fact that the 10.1″ display closely matched the size of the old radio and the hole in the dash I needed to fill.Really happy with the unit so far.Packaging was good. Everything protected and nothing missing.Had to do some custom work on the install. I added a bezel behind the display as there was a small gap from the hole left by the old radio. Also had to fabricate a mounting bracket (see photos). Looks really nice in the dash.So far I tested the Radio, GPS, Pandora, Phone Link (both Bluetooth and Android Auto via Zlink). Installed the Agama launcher and have playing with the options there. Plan on using OBD2 via Torque to build a custom dash to fill in some of the missing instrumentation on the dash of the motorhome. And of course I now can see the time!No problems so far. I have a lot to learn and setup yet. I will provide an update after spending some time with it on the road.Update:Just returned home from a 2 1/2 week trip so got a good chance to use this unit. Still really happy with it. One of my concerns was the ability to have two phones (mine and my wife’s) connected to it the same time. But by connecting mine via Zlink and her’s via Bluetooth that worked fine. Happy the unit has the buttons on the bottom for volume, home, etc. as while driving down a bumpy road in the motorhome hitting the correct spot on the touch screen can be a challenge. I mainly use unit for music via Pandora and directions via Maps over Android Auto connection. Also use Torque to monitor engine a bit. No issues with any of this. I have Agama launcher and it starts Zlink for me when the unit powers up.So I am still happy, still give this unit 5 starts and plan on upgrading my pickup with a Atoto unit soon.

    I received an email follow up from Gina . Amazon won’t allow me to use my Gmail. I purchased this unit for a long list of reasons. I just finished demonstration truck build of my work . The complete interior was custom made ,the woodworking, the Competition Sound System 2 years as I wanted customers to be able to see. So I didn’t want just a standard head unit. I am also Author Linux/Android kernels so for about 3 years I have been keeping up with Android head units. This was the first time I seen one that met my needs and to my surprise surpassed my expectations from my knowledge of Kenwood Excelon and high end units. After seeing the unit was hundreds cheaper than anything compared to it ,and if the Manufacturer specs was not exaggerated I had to purchase it. This Company is innovative and the sound , the response, the features and the beautiful screen .I’m in love . So I realized most people don’t go to the extreme that I do however, I recommend this for factory replacement family cars to competition high Spl Situations. This unit offers even a family safety, entertainment, traffic alerts and allows easily to connect to your vehicles system. They covered all of the practical uses but , I feel this company went ahead further for the convenience and help to the owners that use this. Why did I say help ? This unit with a very simple adapter allows you to have information from your car while you are on the road . It monitors important data that works with a wide range of applications that could potentially alert you of an issue that could save you thousands. All while never taking your focus away from the road . I can’t go deep into details because it’s that feature able. Some of my thoughts come to mind? A single mother kids and she doesn’t have a care about replacing her factory head unit. However, if she understood that it would help her and change her commutes , and give her peace of mind ? Absolutely. For a competitive build 160db+ such as mine , yes it’s perfect for your build, you can use a good quality mic ,spl mic and install termlab, lotus oscilloscope apps to your head unit? Insane for the geek , competition guy “me” . A buddy of mine average Basshead same thing fell in love his alpine DSP apps work fine on this unit . Car audio ,BassHeads,Geek, Competitive person, family man or woman, this company is going to be around a long time . Sorry for a long review I hope this helps everyone.Ill soon have videos of my setup and this until. On my Facebook.

    We love this head unit!No bugs after 2 weeks of use. I’ll update if anything comes up.The 10″ screen originally was a shock to get over. But it provides so dramatically more screen space, and places it closer to the driver, and is therefore much safer. Also easier on our old eyes.Based on the attached pictures you can decide whether it works for your car. Rock-solid screen bracket with the ability to angle at many angles, and different distances from the dash. Ours is installed as close to the dash as allowed.Also installed ATOTO’s front view camera (DVR) and their rear view camera with birds-eye view. Great! Front view camera is a DVR with up to 500gig micro-SD card.Downloaded AGAMA’s home screen app. Love it.The beauty of an Android head unit is the unit can look and function any way you want. Download apps from Play Store. Software/interface doesn’t become obsolete.Technical support is outstanding! They were great help during installation and provided excellent trouble-shooting recommendations for my self-generated wiring problems.Installed in a 2003 4Runner Sport, interfaced to the 4Runner steering wheel control buttons, the original 10 speaker JBL Synthesis amplifier/system.12/15/20 update: Still love it. No bugs.A great added feature of Android OS is you can have various audio or video apps on the radio and have each listening to something different. One on ours is playing old time radio shows on USB thumb drive. A different app is playing our large CD library on micro SD card. Separate app for over-the-air radio. Bring up an app and it continues playing from where it was when the app last played. Switch apps and that one continues playing from where it left off.Still loving the huge screen and the Agama app we installed as a front end menu app.

    Edit: 8-19-2021. Unit still working flawlessly. T-Mobile had an “activate a tablet line, get one for free” promo. I put the tablet sim in and we have internet when we need it I tried a mint prepaid before that, as well as AT&T. All 3 worked great. Still very pleased I purchased this unit. So glad to have the android auto in the truckI am very pleased with this radio. I purchased it for a few reasons: I liked the idea of the 10in screen, I wanted it to have android auto and carplay (wireless/wired didn’t matter), it’s has the ability to add TPMS to the device, it works as a 4G LTE device and hotspot, it works with my existing back-up camera and steering wheel controls. When I was installing it I had a little trouble with the SWC but with only like 2 emails to their support it was resolved. Lancy was very responsive with clear detailed instructions to resolve my problem. I can’t say enough good things about their customer support. I would definitely recommend this brand to anyone looking for a large android based head unit.

    Bought a 7″ S8G2A78UL-N for a 2012 GMC Sierra. Retained the steering wheel controls with an RP5-GM31 canbus decoder.Installation: Initially tried an Idoing decoder but that had two signal wires i couldn’t get to work on this radio. Switched to the decoder mentioned above, turned the dial to 7 for Pioneer/other, connected the 3.5mm jack, and it instantly recognized the button presses. You’ll need to program the functions on the software yourself after that.Screen: It’s pretty bright and clear, but can be dimmed and overlayed with a red hue for night time driving easily with a built-in pull down menu option. I added the HD screen protector before installing so i don’t know if it works for glare. The touch is very responsive.Home Screen: You can move apps and widgets around to anything you want like you would on a regular tablet. So that’s pretty neat. It’s also a first since I haven’t seen other radios allow changing of apps on their desktops without the addition of third party software/launchers.Sound: The sound it pretty clear and loud. No issues, pairs well with my factory speakers. I understand there’s a slight hum on some headsets, but that’s probably from electromagnetic interference. I separated the audio cables from the power cables to minimize this effect. You should consider shielding and see if that helps. No background noise on mine.Android Auto: AA is built in so no dongles are required. It may look a little different, but i think this version works better. And, yes, the USB charges your phone as it’s connected to AA/the radio.Overall: the radio is very fast and responsive. The radio itself is also not too deep (thick) so i can hide the decoder and other cables behind it without having to force anything in place, and still have room for other wires.

    Up and running.Haven’t played with it a ton.Sound is good – doesn’t need to be that great in an RV with the engine sitting right below – certainly better sound than the unit I yanked out.Picture is great. Viewable from wide angles.Support is ‘kick ass’. They have some clever ways to mitigate the issues with time zone differences.We have it in an RV. Going on a trip this weekend, so plan to update review when we return.It actually slid right into the mounting bracket and clicked in place.I plan on changing it to the provided mounting brackets in the future for two reasons.1. The unit sits a bit to far away from the dash. Easily remedied with the provided brackets.2. When using the “slide in bracket” that came with the RV, you can’t pull the unit back out. There is no way to get the tool in behind the screen to release. Since this is an RV, it is easily remedied by yanking on the simulated wood grain dash. (See pictures) Once I put in their brackets this will be a none issue.You can see I added there optional steering wheel control, (none available in an RV). It seems to work great so far.My only disappointment is that I had been looking at so many of these from different manufactures that I thought this one would also tilt from side to side, not just up and down. My bad for not keeping it straight. Will see if this really matters after my first trip.UPDATE : We took our trip (2 weeks). I am still happy with this unit. I will be adding their recommended “DVR” camera, and a bluetooth ODB connector in the coming days.

    This head unit is so much better than the Audi RNS-E system that came from the factory with my car. I paired it with the camera, and wow has transformed the car. The backup camera is now as good as quality as my wife’s 2019 car (though missing the moving camera lines). I can finally see going backwards.I mainly bought this to improve my rear visibility, but there are other benefits as well. It definitely sounds better than stock and the eq is robust so I was able to dial in a decent sound, but I really need to upgrade the speakers as well to tell if this has good sound or not, which is why I cannot give a rating.The navigation feature is excellent as well, definite improvement over what I had before.The screen looks good and it is quite responsive. I live that it has an SD card reader front and center as well; I actually just load a 16GB card with all my music so I don’t bother with connecting my phone, though that is an option as well.My biggest complaint about this unit is that push buttons for volume +/- is a bit cumbersome. I miss the factory volume knob, so am looking at hacking the SWC input and using a rotary encoder with an Arduino to get a turning knob. Results are promising and I think it will work.Overall this has really improved my car and I love it, but be prepared for a ton of work installing it (any brand would be the same in that regard).If it is good enough for my Lamborghini, it is definitely going to work in your car.

    Excellent interface response from this unit. Everything works as intended. It’s a bit lacking on the audio configuration settings like cross-over frequency style & slope. It is still away from being anything like one of the big name brands but this gets the job done. The sub audio is coming from a left channel, I recommend using the amplifiers built in crossover to fill out any gaps in bass. Overall, I did try different units prior to installing this one and must say that out of the box it has what most would need or want and most importantly it works. I was surprised to find Atoto mentioned with other interfaces like PAC Audio. Bottom line with this unit is they do have a very strong, responsive customer support team even if they are on Holiday for a week in October in China and the radio may seem simple in its functionality but it works. Android 10 is flawless with my Samsung S9 in both Bluetooth connectivity and wired. This radio was installed in a 2014 Lincoln Navigator and ordered a separate camera for reverse as the factory unit does not provide the quality image that today’s newer cameras offer. That camera was from Nakita and it made a world of difference with image quality.. After several hours spent on useless no name radios offered here on Amazon, you can feel a sense of confidence with this unit that it should operate just fine within it’s warranty period. There are so many radios to choose from and it can get out of control in deciding. By the time you’ve given them a try you find that some have everything you need but do not function properly out of the box. I will continue to play with this radio for some time and provide a future review. For the time being only time will tell if it will live up to its warranty period or surpass it. I would recommend it to my family members and friends. FYI use quality rca cables when connecting this radio to an amplifier.
