Another problem I just observed is I am losing some factory settings (i.e. car logo) and also all radio stations when doing a HU reset (by clicking on/off button for some seconds).

Before upgrading to HA this was not happening.

Do you know how to fix this issue?.

Thanks

Hi. Sorry because I didn't see your message sooner. Yes, I soldered the rf210 in j11 slot and you need to solder wires like I described if you want to work.


I don't know about BW124 and about MCU HA, yes it's working very good and I have Android 10 form Hal9k.

Where can you get this Android 10 version? I am not able to find it in the Yandex link

MCU is not android. Modded roms by Mal and hal are problems- save your money.

Search yandisk for .IMG files such as HA. Use OTG to flash.img and then update to latest OTG

Hello all,
I have a problem, I changed to RF210 in settings and now I cannot get wifi access. I am using a 4G wifi modem and need to get internet access.
Do you know if it possible to connect to internet via Wifi and use Rf210 for Bluetooth?
Thanks

But I do not see any marks with RX, TX, +5V or GND.

Or should I weld directly there the module? In this case in what position?

Thanks

    I am very happy, thanks a lot for your help

    Thanks, but should I weld the RF210 board to the J11 connector and also the 3 cables you indicated here?

    Thanks LiviuE, I appreaciate your help.

    I understand I have to weld the RF210 to J11 connector and then the 3 wires you mentioned from the diagram.

    For welding RF210 in the J11 there is any specific position required?

    Thanks again

    Guys! I've just soldered RF10 into my old PX5 (GS) and upgraded software from old android 6 into android 10 Hal9k (needed since there was no rf210 option in android 6)

    Everything works excellent!!

    - Wifi signal is much better now and finally i can connect and use a wifi in my garage (still on old md725)
    - bluetooth is on rf210, there is no echo! At last! BT OBD adapter is connecting!!
    - android 10 is so much faster and better optimized. Finally i can use google maps

    After almost 5 years all issues with the device was solved.

    Thank you guys. :)
    You are the best! Im so happy!

    Yes, the header is correct, unless the header is for DTV like my unit.

    I have no clue how this would look like.

    what I would do is wire according to the schematic. Probably easier said than done, but doable.

    Well, I guess there is no schematic included in the ali offering. Neither for my unit. So I will likely have to follow some traces. Or just solder it and watch out for some magic smoke.

    However I believe the pinout is likely always the same on those units. Same as for those USB daughterboard modules (see my other link). However here at least the boards are usually labelling the pins.

    I actually ordered one of these modules and will have a look. Perhaps soldering it into my bench unit first (replacing the WQ_BC5 module). If no magic smoke escapes I can search for the correct module type in factory settings and then solder it to my car unit.

    Well, to be honest I am quite OK currently with HAL Android 9 on my car unit so I will see when I got time to try this.
