Also check out this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...a-nav-t3489042

I stumbled upon this and was very interested. Even more when you guys started rooting it. Not trying to be rude, but unfortunately this just seems to be old, outdated and slow consumer grade hardware.
Another question I'm asking myself: Where is the difference between one of these random chinese headunits and this avinusa model? Seems to me they are just reselling for a higher price.

I was really excited for this to work because I have the old CHAMP2 headunit but seeing the thread linked above the aspect ratio is completely off.
Anyway, I basically just wanted to give you guys the link to the thread and wish you the best of luck to make something useful out of this

Do you mind sharing a link to the ROM that Avin passed along? Can you take a picture of what you have in the system info screen (where the build numbers are, etc)?

Waze was completely unbearable last night. Had to use Google Maps instead which worked without a problem...Seems to be luck of the draw with this thing.

Thanks for the link to the thread buddy! I agree that this is most likely outdated consumer grade hardware. Besides the brand name and "support", I doubt there is a difference been the no name units. I mean the interfaces basically look the exact same.

We might as well start documenting the MCU, OS, and APP versions that are floating around. Looks like AVIN send updates adhoc to people who are having issues instead of having a centralized update server.

Mine:
MCU: 0120aJLY-NBT-
OS: 3.0.36+ Mon Dec 19 16:58:22 CST 2016
APP: 20170711-Ver1.0.0.0001_foreign_a

I basically replaced the launcher today with one that is more customizable. Can't post links yet, but it's FCC Car Launcher on Play Store. Disabled Several system services and such. Also dumped the build.prop file, it is edited in the first post.

I have attached a picture of the build info.

Thanks for the file. Just updated mine. Can confirm it breaks root. EDIT: KingRoot/SuperSume process works fine in order to restore root.

I disabled the EZ Browser (the AirPlay/Mirroring App) in the system as well since i never used the functionality, would pop up randomly, and unneeded resource drain.
