The 9-inch 1280*720 IPS screen with a 178° full-viewing angle is big and wide with little to no risk of blocking air vents, knobs or buttons.

Bluetooth tethering, using Bluetooth 2 of the dual Bluetooth (BT1 is for handsfree & music), uses less power, and USB tethering, exclusive from ATOTO, even charges your phone slightly. More than 1,000 apps from Google Play Store have been tested installable on A6 PF. Make it look and function the way you like it.

Many apps and contents not supported by CarPlay or Android Auto can be displayed on A6 PF with MirrorLink.
  • 【DSP with Time Correction, SCV & 36-band EQ, Preamp】The Digital Signal Processor makes it possible to equip A6 PF with: (1)Time Correction, aligning the time it takes for audio signals from each speaker to reach your ears; (2)Speed Compensated Volume, automatically adjusting volume as the speed changes, to adjust for road and wind noise; (3)36-band EQ, allowing deep customization for even the most sophisticated ears. The built-in max. 4*45W & RMS 4*24W amp offers great sound quality.
  • 【Live Rear-View & Customer Support】LRV offers a real-time rear-view even when driving forward (ATOTO AC-HD02LR camera required), free from the obstructions behind you inside the vehicle. A6 PF can process 720P HD rear-view camera input (other car stereos can only connect to cameras of 480-600 lines).

No Division in Your Family Between iPhone and Android Phone Users!

Wireless is simply better:No more worries about where to put your plugged phone. No more search for a holder which you find to be superfluous anyway. No more entangled cords to distract you. Free at last!

Fast and automatic connection:For wireless CarPlay/Android Auto, the Bluetooth connection is quick. And after you make the connection for the first time, it will all be automatic. For wired CarPlay/Android Auto, once you plug your iPhone/Android phone into the "Phone Link" port on A6 PF, it takes about 3 seconds for CarPlay/Android Auto to be automatically launched. A true plug-n-play function.

Stable data transmission:Thanks to the premium hardware inside, A6 PF is more than capable of delivering stable and reliable data transmission, both wirelessly (5GWi-Fi) and wiredly (with USB), which is a strong booster for you in driving.

Great Performance Across All CarPlay/Android Auto Functions:CarPlay/Android Auto has revolutionized the way we drive by enabling us to safely use the iPhone/Android phone while driving. Now we can make calls, send/receive messages, listen to music/radio/podcasts/news/audiobook... on the head unit while driving really conveniently. This, in turn, requires a head unit that can adequately meet the demands of these functions in terms of audio and visual performance.Regarding audio,on A6 PF, the max. 4*45W amplifier with RMS 4*24W (Vcc=14.4v,THD=10%) makes sure that whether you are making a call, listening to your favorite music or podcasts and so on, you can hear things clearly at a comfortable volume, powerful yet without any distortion. And the included microphone? All who have used it think it's good and very clear.Visually:the full HD 9" 1280*720 IPS screen (brightness 600cd/m2), other than its big size and fantastic color rendition, offers great visibility even in broad daylight. Also, as a 5-touch capacitive touchscreen, it is easy and smooth to operate on.

ATOTO A6 PF supports running CarPlay map navigation while playing FM/AM radio/USB music in the background. Be aware that not all car stereos can do this!


CarPlay iPhone compatibility:Wired CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later models with iOS 7.1 or higher. Wireless CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later models with iOS 9.0 or higher.

Android Auto phone compatibility:Wired Android Auto is compatible with phones with Android 6.0 or higher. Wireless Android Auto projection is compatible with any phone with Android 11.0, a Google or Samsung phone with Android 10.0 (Google Pixel 4, Samsung Note 9, Samsung Note 20, and Samsung S 10 are compatible with wireless Android Auto on A6 PF), and selected Samsung phones with Android 9.0 (Samsung S8 and Note 8 are compatible with wireless Android Auto on A6 PF).

Original USB cable for wired connection:If you choose to use wired CarPlay or wired Android Auto, for fast charging, for instance, factory/original USB cables are required. Non-manufacturer made USB cables may easily cause connection issues, such as black screen after minutes of playback, connection failure or unstable phone connection.

3 Ways to Access the Internet and a Whole Lot of Accessories!

1. Connecting to the phone's hotspot via 2.4 GHz &5 GHzWiFi (most car stereos only offer WiFi hotspot at 2.4 GHz)

When it comes to Internet access, most Android car stereos offer only one option: WiFi hotspot, and only at 2.4 GHz, a frequency band that is congested due to its wide use (including by electronic appliances). This is where A6 PF stands one cut above the rest with the5 GHzWiFi, ensuring optimal Internet connection at all times!

2. Bluetooth tethering for saving power

For running online maps or streaming music, a relatively low bandwidth, e.g. 200 kb/s, is enough. Switch to Bluetooth tethering, as it has the advantage of consuming less power than hotspot.

3. USB Network Tethering (an EXCLUSIVE feature from ATOTO)

If you are still insecure about your phone battery, there is a third option. With a USB cable, you can have almost the same bandwidth as with WiFi hotspot, and your phone battery can even charge slightly. You only need to run the app CarbitLink (preinstalled) in the background.

More than 1,000 apps from Google Play Store have been tested compatible with A6 PF, esp. media/entertainment apps and navigation apps in "Auto & Vehicles". Very few developers such as Netflix specify device types for installing their apps. Android car stereos are usually ruled out. Make your A6 PF look and function the way you like it!

Installing an Android Car Stereo is not the equivalent of putting an Android tablet in your vehicle. A6 PF has lots of inputs and outputs customized for it to work better in the vehicle. (Check the picture at the bottom for inputs, outputs & slots.) A few examples of the accessories that you can connect A6 PF to:

  • (1)ATOTO CA-AEC01Car Amplifier for your ATOTO head unit. Much more powerful than the built-in amp, it greatly boosts your audio experience;
  • (2)ATOTO AC-44P2USB On dash 1080 P DVR camera to record video files for preview & playback;
  • (3)ATOTO AC-UTP1USB TPMS tire pressure monitor system to monitor the temperature and pressure of your tires, alerting you both visually and aurally;
  • (4)ATOTO AC-HD02LRrear view camera for HD 720P rear view input and Live Rear View (LRV) feature to view the traffic behind even when driving forward; AC-HD03LR is not compatible.
  • (5)ATOTO AC-4450OBD 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.
  • (6)headrest monitors using ATOTO Video Output Adaptor (AC-AHV68: USB to HDMI adaptor;AC-AHV48: USB To RCA adaptor; Both are sold separately). A6 PF is dual zone capable, meaning what's displayed on A6 PF can be different from on the headrest monitors, interrupting the kids watching their favorite movie in the backseat as little as possible! (some apps do not support dual zone display)
  • (7)ATOTO AC-44F8IR remote, for more convenient operation when no original steering wheel controls are available. ATOTO AC-44F5 is not compatible.(8)Game pads via Bluetooth (check for compatibility before purchasing a specific game pad)

An Audio Feast!

A6 PF is equipped with a powerfulDigital Signal Processor, which takes the audio experience in the vehicle to a whole new level:

  • Time Correction:Because of the distance differences, the time it takes for audio signals from different speakers in the vehicle to reach your ears is different, undermining your listening experience. By correcting the time differences, A6 PF's Time Correction feature makes sure that you hear the sound from each speaker at the same time.
  • Speed Compensated Volume:When the speed of your vehicle increases, the ambient noise (road noise, wind, etc.) increases as well. This feature automatically increases (and decreases as the vehicle slows down) the sound coming out of your system to compensate for this phenomenon.
  • 36-Band EQ:The number of adjustable bands in the built-in equalizer is a stunning 36. Even the most picky audiophile will feel pandered with so many options. You can really dive in and tune the sound exactly to your liking. The EQ can also be switched to graphic mode, where you can make broad frequency adjustments with just a swipe (kill the lows or the highs, for example).
  • Moreover, you can set the crossover points between the subwoofer and the speakers, boost the low end (multiple cutoff points selectable), enhance the stereo sound, and do more! Combined, all these features make sure that your ears enjoy the audio feast they deserve on the road!

MirrorLink allows you to fully cast what's displayed on your smartphone to A6 PF's screen

Certain apps (Youtube, for example) or contents are not supported by CarPlay or Android Auto. Therefore, if you or any passenger in the vehicle want to view them on A6 PF's big screen anyway, MirrorLink is the solution (realized through the app CarbitLink on A6 PF).

Important: Some video streaming services (Netflix, AMZ Prime, Disney+, etc.) may not support MirrorLink.

Note: With very few smartphones with a curved screen, there will be a tiny black area on the 4 edges of A6 PF's screen. This is caused by differences in firmware and the layout of the curved screen.

HD 720P rear view video display with Live Rear-View (LRV) feature

Typically, car stereos can only process and display 480-600 lines CVBS rear view video signals, while A6 PF displays HD 720P rearview videos with adjustable parking guidelines (ATOTO AC-HD02LR rearview camera is required, sold separately). Say goodbye to snowy static pictures when reversing your vehicle.

A6 PF also provides the Live Rear-View (LRV) feature - now you can access the rear view even when driving forward. Driving will be much safer, and the rear view mirrors will indeed become relics!

You can set one of the steering wheel keys as a shortcut for quick access.

Warranty Policy for ATOTO Head Units (7)

Personal Privacy Protection without Sacrificing Convenience

To protect Google / Facebook & other SNS accounts from unintended access, A6 PF offers 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 (unlocking via Bluetooth) allows users to unlock the screen once Bluetooth connection is automatically re-established.

You do not have to input the password manually. All you need to do to lock or unlock your A6 PF's screen is walk out of and back in its Bluetooth range.
