Hey, so I bought this ainavi head unit (https://pt.aliexpress.com/item/1005002649144963.html) and so far I've been happy with it, it came with canbus box and reverse camera. So I got the idea to develop a app that could read some of the values from canbus and send them to my server for logging and what not. The thing Is I don't really know where to start, from what I've seen around here there are different types of head units (FYT, MTCB, MTCD) so my first question is how can I know what type my unit is? I've left an attachment with the info screen on the unit. Another thing, song names and radio station names dont show up on the info screen on the gauge cluster so my second question is, can it be done? I've seen a guy that did it with tasker and then "disaperared". Any help provided would be much appreciated :D. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I tried looking for a service that interfaced with canbus and could't find anything that looked like it

Hi Man!
I bought the same unit, but regret that I took the 2gb+32gb version. Navigation apps are laggy and freezes, there is a new update available from the seller, it's a very nice upgrade, ask them to send you via mail, how is your unit working in terms of smoothness and navigation, did you stick the GPS receiver under your windshield ?

Hey, I just tucked the gps and cellular antenas behind the unit, not glued or anything. Reception has been great and has worked flawlessly for a year (I got the 4gb+64gb version). Could you post images of the new interface you got?

But if you are having gps/4g reception issues I advise you to mount the antenas behind the A pillar of your glovebox side (easier to route wires)

Is it because of the low ram memory? The salesman told me not to worry because it had a Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core chip at 1.8ghz, now I'm sure I should have just gotten at least the 4gb version, would have been worth the extra $50, you even have a 6gb/128gb version, I want to know how I can root this unit so that I can overclock the chip above 2ghz, btw I'm going to take some pictures for you, because it looks really nice!
You perform the update via the USB connection, it's about 2,6gb large file.

If I were you I wouldn't overclock the chip. You problem is with your low ram amount. I'm running stock cpu speed and everything works smoothly. Increasing the cpu freequency would only make your cpu run hotter and reduce it's lifespan. with 4gb of ram, waze and radio open I get around 52% of ram usage so yeah. Maybe sell your unit for the 4/6gb ram version

Yeah GPS is working fine now, the placement seems very important.
I like the old interface more, that's too futuristic for me haha. for gps antena placement I sugest you put in behind that panel, not to hard to take off and it's easy to route the wires. Just google "golf mk5(from what it seems) A pillar removal" and you will find plenty of videos. I think it's woth it for the stock look without any antenas in sight :)
