Did you enable "Remove tap restriction" ? If so, try disabling it again. You should also try "Force 2.4Ghz" if that has no effect. Enabling "Passthrough" would rule out some things too if both of those don't work.
Thanks. I never enabled the remove tap restriction and oh yes, i set my usb at default. Whilst i did tried the options to enable passthru and also 2.4ghz on fw 1.3, i still experiencing stuttering audio. But, i will try those options again on this firmware.

Hi there,

Noticed several device disconnections when passed same place. Seems something interfere with 5 gHz WIFI.
Fortunately it wasn't a place on my regular driving routes.

So, I am thinking it would be safer when traveling to unknown places, especially if it is a large city and you rely on navi, to force 2.4 gHz for more stable connection.

My question is to those of you, who use 2.4 ghz - is there any interuption/delays in music or navi voice guidance or anythin else that you have noticed.

unfortunately with the latest versions and updates, now it is very hard to connect to the AAWireless. I need to plug it in and out before i can connect to the BT of the dongle.

Is there a possible way i can revert to 1.2 firmware and corresponding app? That was the last version where everything worked flawlessly. Or perhaps show the debug text so i can try to see whats wrong when reproducing the issue

I am using 2.4 ghz all of the time now. A place that I regularly pass has started to interfere with 5 ghz wifi. No downsides that I have noticed.

If you have Start / Stop enabled, disable it until the next firmware.

Peugeot 3008 Google pixel 3a. Connection works without any problems. But Google maps announcements and Spotify don't work together. It freezes and autodisplay becomes very slow. I have version 1.4 and have tried all the settings. Got to go back to the cable.

Do you have integrated navigation in your 3008? If not, you could try to delete all android auto data and resetting the AAW unit. Bosch RCC had problems before but all should be good now in 1.4 along with positive results (me included).

That said, I have not enough knowledge to say anything about the NAC (with integrated navigation) unit, but full reset everywhere could not make any harm.

Edit: tried with my rcc right now, all works as they should. Doublecheck that the usb mode is on "Default". Above mentioned fixes have worked with others running with 3008. If those wont work, im out of ammo. Hope you get it sorted out tho!

My PIxel 4XL connects fine in my 2020 Hyndai Kona but never connects to my 2020 Corvette.

AAWireless is flashing a blue light this whole time but Android Auto never comes up.

Direct mode by itself made things worse (red light = rebooting I think) and Passthrough Mode didn't work either.

Anything else to try?

Try 1.4 fw on aaw if you are not already running with it. As you are on GM car, best bet afaik is on "default" usb mode. Full reset AAW, forget it on bt settings, and wipe data+cache on aawireless + wipe also data and cache in original android auto app

Edit: made it more cohesive and understandable

Haben Sie in Ihrem 3008 eine integrierte Navigation? Wenn nicht, können Sie versuchen, alle automatischen Android-Daten zu löschen und die AAW-Einheit zurückzusetzen. Bosch RCC hatte vorher Probleme, aber jetzt sollte in 1.4 alles gut sein, zusammen mit positiven Ergebnissen (mich eingeschlossen).

Über die NAC-Einheit (mit integrierter Navigation) habe ich allerdings nicht genügend Kenntnisse, aber ein kompletter Reset überall kann nicht schaden.

Edit: Habe es gerade mit meinem rcc versucht, alles funktioniert wie es soll. Überprüfen Sie, ob der USB-Modus auf "Standard" steht. Die oben genannten Fixes haben bei anderen mit 3008 funktioniert. Wenn diese nicht funktionieren, habe ich keine Munition mehr. Hoffe du bekommst es in Ordnung gebracht!
Ich habe tatsächlich NAC. Ich habe auch schon zurückgesetzt und USB auf Standard. Wie gesagt, es funktioniert nicht. Aber danke für die Tipps. Ich werde dann warten. Vielleicht gibt es ja irgendwann mal ein Update

Testing over the weekend for the Assistant voice level seems to point to an issue in the Polo. It happened using the cable and didn't happen in the GTI when I went out in it. Strange.

In a few weeks the Polo will be off the road so I'll be experiencing AAW in the GTI and returning the other unit to my wife's Mitsubishi, we'll see how the newer FW etc goes in that vehicle. It wasn't as good as the VAG cars at the start.

In regards to audio skipping, I have gotten it on 2.4 and 5Ghz, but it does seem less prominent on this Motorola. I will see how things go when I get my Samsung back.

Anyone else experience non working steering wheel buttons in his/her PSA 2020/2021 (Peugeot, Citroen, Opel/Vauxhall) car?
I'm on firmware 1.4 and using a Google Pixel 4XL. Got the problem since 1.3, passthrough activated. USB Mode "Direct" and "Default" on Firmware 1.4. When I use the "next track" button on my steering wheel, the list of radio stations appear.

Car: Opel Corsa F 2020 without Navigation.

This morning on the cable the Assistant worked perfectly with the audio, so not sure what's going on with these cars.

1.4 fixed all this for me (citroen 2020) after resetting the aaw and aa app. Usb on default.

    when are feature improvements and new features going to be tackled? It was several months back that you said that they would be tackled after the new version of the start/stop feature was released but we are still waiting for this. Surely Gen2 has been resolved now.
    Gen2 has not been resolved yet, we are very close but not there yet. That's why we are producing 16k Gen1 units now (with a lot of effort to actually get components), to fill the gap and finally get off Indiegogo.
    Gen2 is a huge risk for us, we don't want to mess it up. We are planning to produce Gen2 in large quantities (20k+) batches. If we mess up a 20k batch of devices we can bassicly pack up and go.
    We already felt the pain of messing up a batch (batch 2) and this was only one of 6k units.
    I'm sorry it might seem like we are not doing much, but in the background a lot is going on, not only technically.
    Features will come, and they will come this year. But I cannot give any short term deadlines anymore.

    On the app side, if you want to test bleeding edge builds you can join here: https://appdistribution.firebase.dev/i/5196d378c8e122d7

    I might also set up the same thing for the board-side. Only there it's a bit trickier, because of the chance of "bricking" the device.

    Hello guys. I don't know if this was already discussed, so I'll try to find the answer with your help. So, how can I set that the AA to start only when I start the car, and to completely stop when I stop the engine? The thing is that every time I approach the car (and the usb gets powered), AA starts and prompts on my phone. Also, when I leave the car and get away from it, AA on the phone takes a while to autoclose, since the car usb s are still powered, I guess.
    Hope I managed to explain what I am looking for :)
    The car is a Renault Megane 4 GT with rlink 2 v9 and the phone is a Samsung Note 20

    L.E. since the AA wireless is on even after I exit the car, any phone call is routed to the AA/car BT and not directly on my mobile phone and I can not hear anything (since its being routed through the car speakers)
    To anyone with this issue, you can make a workaround using an app like tasker (or macrodroid which is easier to use) and create a profile.
    For example, I remote start my car so I'm moving in and out of range for AAwireless and Bluetooth. So my "profile is to wait for Bluetooth to connect to my car, then open/launch android auto which then triggers aawirelessly. I make a 2nd profile that once my Bluetooth connection disconnects from my car (car turns off) the profile kills android auto and disconnects from AAwireless wifi. Works great (my car's USB powers on when unlocking car or opening car doors etc)

    I drove 10 hours in the last two days, using AAW constantly (Youtube Music, Audible, TuneIn, phone calls and Google Maps) and it worked absolutely flawless in my Skoda Kodiaq (2017) with a Pixel 5. I'm really happy with the device!

    Posted via Indiegogo and thought I would post here too. Glad to hear you’ve managed to move forward with production again. I’m not asking for an ETA – more of a timeline, do you have an idea when there will be updates to the firmware/app for those who have received their devices? I understand you want to get devices shipped but if you are amongst the group that has bugs/issues with the current firmware, this device is pretty much being used as a paperweight. Once again, I'm not trash talking this device because I love it while it works but some transparency on the development side would be nice since we only hear about the manufacturing side on Indiegogo

    This thread is dedicated for AAWireless users.

    AAWireless is a device which allows you to transform your existing wired Android Auto compatible unit into a Wireless Android Auto unit.

    General chat, experience sharing and community support should be expected as well as support from the developers of the product: @Snirpo and myself.

    We fixed the "VW Headunit crashing on skipping tracks" issue now completely. Confirmed it's a bug on the HU side, latency makes it worse. We will probably push a new firmware by the end of this week.
    I will also submit a bug report to Google, cause they can fix/workaround this issue as well for cabled users.

    Hello. What's new in 1.5?
    A full changelog for each release would really be appreciated :)
    Thanks for all the hard work!
    Yes, I'll write a full changelog next week from 1.0.0 to 1.5.0 and put it on GitHub + add a link in the app.

    I've already waited patiently for delivery 3 months more than expected - I ordered In April and was coming in June but now that's looking like October. Now I read on the indiegogo forum that people in the UK are being charged an additional €27 by the Royal mail as the UK is now not in the EU.

    Hi Emil!
    Just received my AAWireless, and will plug in and test tonight. Love the packaging, looks great! However… Since it was shipped from Hong Kong I was forced to pay a rather substantial import fee and duties on this bad boy. I was under the impression that they would be shipped from within the EU? Is it stands now I’m EUR 27,00 poorer :(

    Looks like you are in the UK which is outside EU and also there is no way to pre-pay taxes with shipping company any more either....


    This is a crazy. An additional $10 was already taken for delivery and it was meant to ship from the EU. I suspect the units have been shipped by Royal Mail / Dutch post. The Royal Mail rips off people in the UK because they add another £11 in admin fees on top of the 20% VAT even though goods up to £135 should be exempt.
    See https://www.gov.uk/government/publi...s-goods-sold-to-customers-from-1-january-2021

    So not only has VAT been charged coming into the EU from China, it has also been charged coming into the UK ON TOP of the VAT already paid in the EU.

    This is just rubbish. What the guys need to do is either ship it from Hong Kong which can cost £0.20 (there are hundreds of chinese ebay and aliexpress sellers doing this already
    See http://www.vatfraud.org/blog/stop-s...ons-universal-postal-union-upu-terminal-dues/
    The $10 postage already taken should then be refunded.

    The other way round it is send the item from Hong Kong and to mark the item as a gift and providing it is below £39 there is NO VAT to pay and NO Royal mail admin fee. Actually as the original product was $57 - roughly £41.25 This wouldn't be a crime seeing as we have had to wait soo long. This could also mean the $10 delivery could be refunded

    The other way is to ship it via fedex and state the ex-vat cost coming from china and then add 20% vat that the developer should be paying to the UK HMRC.

    Sadly if that doesn't take place, EVERYONE IN THE UK will feel ripped off because of the poor delivery and poor choices made by the developers.

    Cheers
    Disgruntled in the UK

    First of all, your item wasn't shipped yet since in the June batch, so you could have not payed anything for shipping. Secondly, UK is outside the EU, there was a vote about this in 2016, so it doesn't matter if the package comes from EU or from HK or from US, it is treated the same, it's an import. If we import it from HK to EU, we will pay import VAT on the product, then when we send it to UK, we claim back that VAT and we should pay VAT in UK, since there is no more free trading between EU and UK.

    Up till recently there was a nice option, to pay VAT and Import duty up-front, when you ship to the UK, but this has been changed and now they requires business outside UK to register with HMRC and do HMRC feeling even if they are residing outside UK, a lot of red tape. Since crowdfunding is not a sale, we can still ship the units to UK, but not sure if we will be able to after the IndieGoGo campaign.

    We are also a EU registered company so we cannot (and will not take advantage) of any loop-holes in systems to sell at ridiculously / unrealistically cheap prices.

    About the user who paid 27 euros, it turned out that user is living in DK, but provided the address as UK so his package traveled the wrong way, hence the extra duties and surcharges.

    Not aware of other users from UK having to pay anything additional when they received the package.
