We have sacrificed DVD for the big screen. Diagonal of the multimedia unit screen is 12.1 inches; it is IPS matrix with a resolution of 768 * 1024 pixels. That type of head units is available with a diagonal from 10.5 to 15 inches. The Head unit with those parameters inevitably copes with essential functions such as navigation, radio, music, Internet.
At the top of the screen, the main application icons are located. You have no possibility to change them. Here they are:

We can display the applications on the entire screen, or minimize them to the half of the screen. When we reduce the size of the application, the information of tachometer and speedometer is showing in the bottom of the screen. The displaying of that information is possible thanks to wire that connects to the OBD connector. If you did not connect this cable, the performance of these meters would be static.
