    ATOTO A6 uses an SoC with an ARM-based CPU (MTK 8127A) whereas the S8 uses an SoC with X86-based CPU (Spreadtrum SC9853i). Because the CPUs use different instruction sets, porting ROMs from one to the other is not going to be feasible.

    Post How to use steering wheel controls with the Atoto A6 Pro.

    I did some searching and yes, it seems that everyone who is installing aftermarket radio into 2011 Malibu needs some kind of SWC module. Seems like this is neeed not only for the SWC (which is non-resistive) but also to retain the sounds for warning chimes and the click sounds for the...

    Interested to hear how this works out. I bought the black and silver glossy JDM bezel which is $75 USD, but still crazy expensive for a piece of plastic. It does look and fit great though.

    That should change the color of the backlight for the physical buttons across the bottom of the ATOTO front panel. I have mine set to red, and my buttons are lit up red.

    Post [Review] ATOTO A6 Install in Subaru WRX

    If your STI has the 3-wire SWC and if you connected the common write to chassis ground, then the two remaining Subaru harness wires should be connected to ATOTO Steering Wheel wires: Key(+) and Key#(+). It should not matter which Subaru wire goes to which ATOTO wire. So if it's not working...

    Yes, 2010 Toyota Corolla model S has steering wheel controls that are resistance, so this should work. The Corolla wiring diagrams here might help with connecting to ATOTO.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing. Love the diagram. I actually purchased a second Liislee last month just so i could experiment with bracket ideas without disturbing the camera on the vehicle. If I get up enough motivation to work on it, I'll do something similar. What gauge of steel did you use?

    Yes, I agree since the Dasaita was plug-n-play, there's really no way you could have messed up the connections. Since it's not working, i'd say it's definitely a Dasaita problem -- either their SW or their HW or their harness isn't really plug-n-play for Subaru with Nav. I'd push on Dasaita...

    The Subaru wiring diagrams for Model Year 2008 dont have any information on steering wheel controls which makes me uncertain if this was an option, and based on 2008 service manuals, I'm also not seeing Navigation being an option. So I'm unsure about the wiring of your 2008 Forrester. For...

    I dont have any great insights to the problem other than confirming that 2014 Outback uses resistive SWC and that pins 4, 13 and 14 on the Subaru harness appear to be the right signals. Pin 14 should be the common one, and AFAIK should be connected for ground for ATOTO. There are some factory...

    I have no first hand experience using the subwoofer output, but complaints about the ATOTO subwoofer output level was mentioned here. It seems like ATOTO has an "automatic" mode and "manual" mode for subwoofer output level, but neither of them seems very good.

    You didnt describe what problems you are having, but I am assuming that the steering wheel controls are not working at all on the ATOTO?

    The AOTO A6 harness does require a direct connection to battery power. For the ATOTO A6 PRO, it is the pin4 (Red-ACC) on the power harness (see attached diagram). This wire needs a direct connection to the battery +12v signal. Not sure if this is what you meant by "number 5 cable" or if you...

    The ATOTO A6 Pro has line-level outputs (RCA outputs on the back), so if your vehicle has a separate amplifier, then you should probably be using those.

    Sure, if your Metra harness is missing those pins, you could bypass it and connect directly to the factory wires. Recommend using T-Taps so as not to damage your factory harness.

    On 2011 Subaru Forester with factory navigation, that wire (a brown wire with yellow stripe) would be brought out to one of the navigation connectors. Don't know if that wire is accessible in your vehicle's instrument panel harness or not.

    No. The bypass feature is controlled by the ATOTO device setting. As long as the "Video watching prohibition" setting is disabled (as shown in the attached picture) then the bypass feature is enabled and the ATOTO will ignore the parking brake signal. In this case the "Parking Brake" wire 13...

    I have never played videos on my ATOTO, so i'm not really sure how ATOTO implemented this feature. I suspect the ATOTO "Video watching prohibition" feature only applies to using the ATOTO video player app while the vehicle is moving, and does not affect playing web-based video such as Youtube.

    No, there is no need to bypass the parking brake, as required on some other head units. On the ATOTO the parking brake bypass is controlled by the "Video watching prohibition" device setting. (page 15 in the A6 Pro manual). I believe this setting is disabled by default, which means the ATOTO...
