Hello,

I bought this Android carplay box:
Android 7.0 Carplay AI Box 4+32G

Ha8b24207e60248d085db905381487149p.jpg


Im using it in Mercedes Class A250e with last MBUX.

The central touch console works very well with the box, but in car steering wheel controls dosent work. And i think that i need to upgrade for Android 9 for working with car steering wheel controls.

So, my question is:
How i can upgrade the android version? and Where is that compatible Android version for this Android AI box?

Thanks a lot

For me, only the volume control button works from the steering wheel controls. None of the other button works. I am using in Honda Accord.

This 4-core box is not easy to use. The Qualcomm 8-core box is perfectly compatible with the original car's touchpad, steering wheel buttons, scroll wheel, and knob operations. Those who can operate CarPlay can operate this box.

I have the Allwinner CP600P 4/32 running
The 2021-06-28 update. It came from Alibaba seller with a really old firmware. Bluetooth didn’t work out if the box which is what led me to come across this forum.

I cannot get Bluetooth to work. It turns on then off right away.
Purchased a usb dongle (Plugable 4.0) and same thing- doesn’t work.
All I want to be able to do is connect to Bluetooth OBD2 devices for gauges. That’s all I care about as I already have wireless CarPlay. Can someone help me?

Buy a cheap Phone that ist rootable and use Android Auto Hacks and AAAD, also depending on your mib Version of your Audi you can Take a Look at this: https://github.com/jilleb/mib2-toolbox You also find newer firmwares for your cp600p in my firmwarethread.

Thank you so much. you think my box is bad, or not meant to pair with OBDeleven?
Thanks for the toolbox. Ive been trying to get CarPlay to appear in the VC, which is enabled on the Audi TT only. I don’t know if it will help with that or not.

Your FW thread is where I got the 2021-06-28 update from (and I still have the Bluetooth issue) Thanks for posting those updates. Best info on the net for this stuff

Yes, because your turn the volume in your car not the AI Box. when you use an USB remote to change volume you will see another volume bar at the middle.

I have the same issue on my Lexus, the button on the steering doesn't work. The odd thing is the pick up/hang up phone button works. And I am 100% sure is controlling the AI box because my phone Bluetooth only connects to the AI box not the car.

All the firmwares are post in here:

Make sure you use Android 7 firmware only. Do your research first before installing the rooted firmware.

Hi,
I purchased a Carlinkit cpc200 tbox November 2021 (great product) and has been working perfectly.
Until this week, when it has stopped booting up. It will get to a black screen with android in the centre, it looks like it frozen but after 30 to 60 seconds turns off and try to reboot, with the same result.
When the unit is powered up there is a solid green and red light, after 15 seconds green light starts flashing,
after 30 to 60 seconds the red light disappears and 15 seconds later green light disappears. It seems as it is
Rebooting again.
I would like some help to fix problem.
Is this a firmware problem.

"(great product) and has been working perfectly.

I'll just leave this here.
