Gps igo is awesome. Brightness issue was sorted and a few sound improvments to.
Carinfo app doesn't work. Canbus seems to work to some extent as the unit turns on and of with the key and cables wired to the canbus wires on the car.
In the settings menu you can select how the lights on the unit will react to turning the car lights on and of. these settings are quite important so the ilumination doesn't stay on all the time. you can also select how long the unit will be in sleep mode before it completely turns itself off. I chose 1h.
Does anyone have a pin out diagram? I need to rewire my aux in and camera rca.
Also, what does the pink cable do? Does it rely on negative ground to activate camera input?
How do I get reverse camera to work?
I ordered mine with dvb-t but that doesn't work. Doesn't pick up any channels haha.
BT microphone is dud to but have asked supplier for an external mic. Was hoping to get a wiring diagram and wire in my own microphone to the rear of the unit.
Screen is much brighter after recent update. The only bad thing is that even after setting up what each button should do, the radio app doesn't change station between the preset ones via the big toggle wheel anymore. Used to do it before the update.
Toggle wheel and changing tracks works with spotify and other apps tho which is good.
OH about to forget. My unit doesn't take CD's!! cd goes in almost all the way then gets stuck and comes back out again. might have to unscrew the top of the unit and see why the cd doesn't go all the way in.

Pin out diagram should be on top of the unit you have to look at the diagram based on the port at the back of the unit rather than the socket itself, you will find then that the wires correspond mostly
You have to remove the two screws on the top of the unit before you can use the CD, found that out later
Yes I finally figured how to update my unit with the update, GPS Slot for my Audi A4 version was the one on the right, copy the update folder to a SD Card, Slot in the GPS Slot, press and hold down the Power button and Eject button together and it goes into Android recovery and recovers from the SD card, if no card in slot will recover from Root storage
Lots of new features after update, Slightly new look to radio app, the radio can be paused from the pull down menu on the top left, the music app has stopped crashing, I can go to the play store, the music app has new equalizer features of loud and something else in Chinese.
The extra car settings finally gives some control of the rear view camera, back-light etc. now the unit is actually quite wonderful to have.
Before the update i had no access to the 16GB iNand flash memory i was promised, i thought i had been ripped off. Now i can copy things freely!!
Having a few issues trying to access the media files on the iNand from the music player but will try work around it
Bluetooth mic doesn't seem to work with me too and had issues with the phone book before the update, yet to check how it is now but at first it was dialing wrong numbers.
Also ordered DVB-T module which didn't pick a single station don't know whether its the antenna or the module.
Try configuring the toggle wheel in the extra settings !(123) menu to skip tracks forwards and backwards and see if there is a difference
In summary after the update i feel i have a really powerful, great looking Android device at last!
car info app no longer says canbus error but in the menu there should be a menu to choose the car model which isnt there?
My illumination still seems to be misbehaving though will toggle some more though.
Many Thanks to Vladimir for the update file
