out of our experience ... ALL (i mean it) hardware below a price of about 150US .. have 2 things in common
1 - made in china
2 - not reliable in matters of "stable work"
so if you skip 1 .. and try to solve No2 ... simple make the device to be "alive" only if the Ignition is on ..
by this way you ensure the unit have a Reboot every time the Engine is turned on.
we normally remove from this devices the build-in batterys and replace them with Capacity-elemets ...
to Fake a battery (the device will "charge" the capacitor in just half a secound)
and if the engine is turned off ... the device loose rapidly energy .. and not "hang" or loose any setting due very slowly but surely discharge of the build in battery.
by this way we running "quite safe" with cheap hardware.
