Our website displays products that are automatically imported from and translated into Russian.

Since we are not the seller of the product displayed on our site, we cannot have all the information about a particular product. Additional information about the goods can be found in several ways:

1. Read the description in detail. Usually all the necessary information is in the official description on the lot page.

2. If the information you are interested in is not in the description, you can ask the question directly to the seller. He will respond to you within one business day.

3. If you have a rich experience of surfing the Internet, you may be able to find information about this product in various forums and other Internet resources using global Internet search services.

4. If you do not speak the language or do not want to clarify the information for any other reason, please contact us – we will be happy to help you. In order for us to ask the seller a question, place an order and write down your questions in the comments to the product. During the day we will make a request to the seller, comments will appear in your personal account.

1.​​Search by keywords, check the catalog on the left

Suppose you want to find a headlight for AUDI, but the search engine returns a lot of results, then you will need to enter the exact make of the car in the search box, then in the list of categories that is on the left, select a new category (Auto Parts – Car Parts – Lighting – Headlights headlights). After, from the presented list, you need to select the desired lot.

2. Shorten the query

For example, you need to find the front right fender for KIA Sportage 2015, do not write the full name in the search box, but write the fender KIA Sportage 15 . The search engine will say “thank you” for a short, clear question that can be edited based on the search engine’s results.

3. Use similar combinations of words and synonyms

The system may not understand any combination of words and translate it incorrectly. For example, the query “computer desk” has over 700 lots, while the query “computer desk” has only 10 lots.

for example, looking for glass on your smartphone, you need to score “glass on xiaomi redmi 4 pro” and not “glass on xiaomi redmi 4 pro”.

5. Write abbreviations and abbreviations in English

If you give an example, the phrase “bmw e65 hub” will give no results due to the fact that in e65 the letter e is Russian. The system does not understand this. In order for the automation to recognize your request, you need to enter the same thing, but in English – “BMW e65 hub”.

6. Few results? Look not only in the title of the ad, but also in the description!

Not all sellers write the necessary search parameters in the ad title, so use the search function in the ad description! For example, you are looking for a turbine and you know its number “711006-9004S”, insert the number into the search box, select the “search in description” checkbox – the system will return much more results!

7. Feel free to search in Polish if you know the name of the thing you need in this language

You can also try using Yandex or Google translators for these purposes. Remember that if you have unresolvable problems with the search, you can always contact us for help.

How one car radio differs from another. Types, types and distinctive features of radio tape recorders

Most motorists do not really understand the intricacies of the car radio installed in the car: it plays, the radio catches, the phone charges – and that’s fine. But when the sad moment of replacement comes, it turns out that even the simplest radio has a lot of design features that need to be considered when choosing. In this article, we have collected for you everything you need to know about the types, types, sizes of radio tape recorders, design features, control and configuration.

Mounting dimension

Let’s start with the simplest: the size range. Now on the market there are three options for mounting dimensions of radio tape recorders: 1DIN, 2DIN and standard.

Head unit

This is the one that is installed from the factory. Regular car radios can have any size and shape, depending on the imagination of engineers and designers. To pick it up for your car, you need to take into account the make, model and year of manufacture of the car, then you can be sure that the new radio tape recorder will clearly fit into its seat.

1DIN and 2DIN

These are the standard dimensions of the radio frame (width and height), which correspond to the car seat niche:

    90 073 Niche for 1DIN corresponds to the dimensions of 180×50 mm;

  • Niche for 2DIN has a size of 180×100 mm.

That is, the width will be the same in both cases, and the height of 2DIN is twice that of 1DIN (logical, right?)

There is also a rare non-standard exotic, which is called 1. 5 DIN: something in between two standard sizes. Such radio tape recorders are occasionally installed as standard head units in American cars, and in order to replace such a radio tape recorder, you need to buy a standard 1DIN and an adapter frame.

A 1DIN radio can be installed in a 2DIN niche if the buyer is primarily interested in a low price and a minimum set of functions. And if dimensions allow, a 1DIN or 2DIN standard radio tape recorder can be installed in place of the regular one, again using a transition frame.

What about depth? This parameter is not standardized in any way, and until recently the landing depth of radio tape recorders was about 160 mm, since this is the size of a standard CD / DVD drive. Recently, however, radios with a shallower depth have appeared. This is due to the gradual rejection of CDs, therefore, all the electronic “stuffing” can be placed in a smaller case. New cars are also often designed for the installation of compact radios, so when buying, you must first measure the mounting niche: it is quite possible that you will have to look for a radio with a landing depth of 5-7 cm, 8 cm, 12 cm and so on.

Features and characteristics of the screens that are installed on the radio, we will consider in the next article. In the meantime, let’s talk about how the screen is connected to the body of the car radio.

The 1DIN radio is most often equipped with a small color screen or simple text display to show the name of the track or the frequency of the radio station. But the 2DIN standard allows you to place a fairly convenient multifunctional screen on which you can display all the necessary information, images from rear view cameras and much more.

Screens are available in three designs: monoblock, retractable and swivel.


It is also stationary – the most common option. The screen is simply built into the radio, nothing special, nothing superfluous and complicated. 90% of radio tape recorders on the market are exactly radio tape recorders with a stationary screen, since it is this design that is the most reliable, less prone to breakage due to vibration and during operation in general.

Retractable screen

An interesting design, useful for those who can only install a 1DIN radio, but want to have a full-fledged large “picture”. In such radios, the screen is hinged and placed in a niche above the radio, from where it can be pulled out if necessary. It turns out a 2-in-1 option: with a hidden screen, you can listen to the radio, music from removable media and use other functions that do not require visualization. And if you need a picture from the rear view cameras, you want to watch a clip, a video on YouTube or a movie, track the route and use other functions, the screen can be pulled out.

Swivel screen

This is a design that allows the screen to be rotated to a horizontal or vertical orientation. The screen itself does not fold, but it works like a tablet, substituting a convenient format for watching movies or displaying a list of files on a flash drive, phone or memory card. Rotary screens can be larger than the standard 180×100, as on 2DIN radios. In modern cars, the head multimedia device can be equipped with a screen with a diagonal of up to 15 inches – such a full-fledged tablet.

Front panel

The front panel is the “face” of the radio, by which it is very easy to recognize. Display, control, slots for connecting gadgets and memory cards – all this should be convenient, intuitive and pleasant to look at. Each manufacturer develops its own style and design of the front panel.

However, such recognition can play into the hands of car thieves. Knowing this, electronics manufacturers offer buyers a radio with a removable panel, which the car owner removes before leaving and hides in the glove compartment or takes it with him. It makes no sense to steal a radio without a front panel: its price is so low that it does not justify the effort and risk expended, and no one will buy it. So it’s not a bad theft insurance.

There are three front panel designs available on the market: removable, fixed and hinged.

Removable panel

This is the anti-theft protection that is popular with drivers who have to leave the car on the street without guards. To store the removed panel, the radio can come with a special plastic or fabric case that protects against scratches and moisture.

Fixed panel

It is one piece with the radio. The fixed design is suitable for those who park the car in a garage, in a guarded parking lot or in the yard of their own private house. In all these cases, the risk that the radio will be “calculated” and try to steal is minimal.

Flip-out panel

This is a solution for convenient operation of a radio with a wide range of functions. In this case, the front panel folds down on hinges, but does not completely remove. Manufacturers often combine controls: the panel itself contains a screen, sound adjustment, radio tuning and other popular functions, and below it there is a disc slot and CD / DVD drive control buttons.

a rare visitor nowadays . At night, all buttons and controls of the radio should be visible without turning on the lights in the cabin, and the general appearance should be in harmony with the interior of the car. So the issue of lighting is one of those that buyers find out when buying.

There are two options for color indication of the car radio: fixed color or changeable.

  • In the first case, the manufacturer indicates which color of the LEDs is used to illuminate the radio. If the issue of aesthetics is very important for the buyer, he will pay attention to the color of the indication and choose the one that suits the style of the salon. Most often, radios are illuminated with one specific color, less often the panel is equipped with a multi-color display.
  • Variable backlight – a universal option when the user can customize the color of the indication. You can choose the usual color scheme, or the most suitable for the interior colors, or change according to your mood.

Of course, among all the technical characteristics, the color scheme of the radio backlight is not the most important, but the mood of the car owner depends on it, and this is already a lot.

Radio control

Switch radio stations, search for your favorite tracks in the playlist, adjust the volume, receive calls – all this has to be distracted if there is no convenient way to control it. Therefore, manufacturers offer various options for controlling the car radio: from old-school buttons and wheels to voice commands.

Mechanical buttons

This is the easiest and most familiar way to interact with electronics. You don’t even need to explain anything here: turn the volume up, press the buttons to move through the playlist, adjust the radio stations … Everything is simple, like a janitor’s song. Such control is suitable for those who turn on the radio, adjust the volume and then hardly touch it.

Touch control

In addition to standard buttons, the radio is also controlled from the touch screen. Comfortable, familiar, functional. It is clear that this requires a full-fledged screen about 10 cm high, so touch control is available on 2DIN or 1DIN radios with a large screen (stationary or retractable).

Infrared remote control

The principle is the same as for any other remote control, including home TV. The most convenient option for controlling the radio from the passenger seats: you can turn on your favorite music or movie without distracting the driver over trifles.

Steering wheel remote control

Such a remote control can be included with the car radio and mounted on the steering wheel with clips. Or the radio tape recorder may provide for the connection of a standard steering remote control, which is equipped with a car from the factory.

OEM remote control

When the radio specifications say that it can be controlled from the standard buttons on the steering wheel, this means that it has a connector for connecting this remote control. For the driver, this is one of the most convenient options: the buttons under the fingers are familiar, no need to relearn, and the radio tape recorder works great.

Remote control from the kit

For car owners who are not equipped with a standard steering wheel remote control, a detachable remote control from the radio set is useful. It is fixed in a convenient place on the steering wheel, connected to the radio and works similarly to the standard remote control.

Smartphone control

Android radios perfectly sync with your smartphone via a wireless connection (Bluetooth or Wi-Fi). You can install a branded application from the radio manufacturer on your phone, for example, Pioneer Advanced Remote Control (Pioneer ARC) or any of the play store, and control all the functions of the radio, including equalizer, backlight, radio settings, file storage and others.

Voice control

One of the most convenient options for the driver is the ability to control the car radio using voice commands. If you need to receive and make calls, select your favorite tracks, adjust the volume, and all this without taking your eyes off the road, choose a radio with voice control.

As a rule, the radio has 2-3 control options, so that the driver can choose the most convenient one.


The issue of equipment is not as simple as it seems at first glance. Given that each manufacturer of radio tape recorders is trying to somehow improve and expand the functionality of their products, sometimes you can find non-standard solutions for connecting or controlling the device. So it’s better if the kit includes all the necessary adapters, adapters and other aids:

  • Adapters for ISO, RGB and other connectors are needed so that the radio is completely connected to any car correctly.
  • Remote antennas: Wi-Fi, GPS, DAB, radio. Depending on which antenna connectors the radio has, so many antennas themselves can be included. It is better to place them not inside the cabin, but closer to the outside of the body, for example, in the upper corner of the windshield. Small antennas, designed to be installed on the rear side of the radio, are usually ineffective and are suitable for use in the city, where there is good communication.
  • Cables: USB extension, AUX, HDMI video cable, RCA “tulips” for connecting speakers, additional cable for remote control on the steering wheel and others. Some of them may never be needed, for example, HDMI is only needed to connect to an external video monitor. But USB or AUX will be needed to connect a smartphone, flash drive or other storage media. Most drivers lead the cable from the rear connector of the radio into the glove compartment: it’s convenient, and always at hand, and there are no “snot” hanging in the cabin.

  • Rear view camera. Many car radios with a screen provide for connecting a rear-view camera, one or two. And sometimes such a compatible camera can come with a radio. It remains only to carefully lay the wire and connect it to the appropriate connector.
  • GPS and Bluetooth module. If the radio is not equipped with a built-in GPS or Bluetooth module, but provides for an external connection, such a module may be included. If you need it, use it; if you don’t need it, turn it off.
  • Remote control. The remote control, the steering wheel remote control and the cable for connecting the standard steering wheel remote control – all this makes using the radio more convenient, fast and inconspicuous.
  • Everything for installation. Frame, plates, keys – everything that you may need when installing the radio yourself, even if you do not have special tools for this. Given that the kit comes with the necessary connectors and adapters, connecting the radio yourself is not as difficult as it seems at first glance. Especially in the presence of a sensible manual.
  • Cloth or plastic cover for access panel. A really handy thing if you need to put the removed panel in your pocket, where it can be scratched or fall out during careless movement.
