Has anyone gone ahead and purchased and installed a screen protector for the Max6 ?
There is one on Amazon as well as the Dasaita store for $30 (CAD)
https://www.amazon.ca/Dasaita-Tempe...protector+22.8+x+12.8cm&qid=1605107337&sr=8-1
I read that some people got screens together with the unit, and asked the seller to pre-apply it. I do not recall though if it was on this thread or one of the product pages on AliExpress or elsewhere, try a search.

I wanted to get a matte screen, to reduce lateral sun glare, but could not find one. In the end I bought a generic tablet foil and never applied it :)

Anyone having trouble with apple carplay? I only get a successful connection using cable... without cable it seems that the phone pairs first with the car Bluetooth and then is unable to...
I know this is an old post, but I have just installed my Dasaita HU a few weeks ago and I struggled at first with the wireless Carplay with intermittent connection until I figured out that: WiFi has to be off and Hotspot on. Perhaps to obvious for many, but took me a while to troubleshoot that.

Good day everybody, (EDIT: 2020/01/16)

I purchased this unit a few months ago, but installed it just a couple of weeks as mi stock HU already comes with Carplay and Android Auto and the main reason I decided to change my HU is basically to use Torque Pro and Dragy.

I have already upgraded to the Malaysk (full) ROM, but some issues persist from the stock ROM as well, which was shipped to me with Android 10 by default, so I hope any of you have some some pointers to address the following:
  • I can't connect to my parent's house wifi for some reason; they have Deco M5 Mesh Routers, so perhaps that is incompatible hardware? - Solved disabling Fast Roaming feature on the Router.
  • Dragy app does not work, it is displayed like if you had zoomed in 300% and does not respond to touch. Is there an app or workaround for apps like these to work on the HU?
  • Radio signal is weaker than stock HU using the factory antenna. Can this be improved somehow?
  • Radio app has up to 18 presets and I only need 6-7. Is the a way to disable remaining unused presets so I can circle back to the first preset skipping forward (and viceversa)? - Installed NavRadio+ instead and it does the trick.
  • In the user manual (if you can call it that) says SD card is supported up to 64GB. Has any of you used a larger capacity SD card successfully? I'm planning on buying a U3 Class 10 SD card, but first I want to know if it has to be 64GB or if I can purchase a larger and cheaper (proportionally) one.
    Bigger cards don't work.
    Thanks to @Bob_Sanders
Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm running the latest version of Android 9 on my max6 but still don't have 'split screen' where I can have to apps on screen at once. How to get that function.
Also, is there a way to share my phones data with the head unit via cable? Hotspot seems to drop out regularly.

Only certain native apps work and you have to 'drag them' while they are open to see if they will highlight a half screen or not. This is not a function of CarPlay or AndroidAuto, so don't try it if you are using either of those. You need to be in the native setup.

Hi Everybody,
a question about the Mic icon placed on left of homescreen of Dasaita default launcher.
Is it possible to rebuild this link if i changhe laucher, like FCC for example?
Is very useful to wake up google assistant directly to the paired bluetooth phone..... I think is better than google assistant in android car stereo....Any idea?

    Was anyone able to root this device? Any guide on how to do it?

    I just installed the Hal9k ROM, it comes with Magisk pre-installed. The ROM install is incredibly simple. Download the package, put the update.zip file on a USB Drive or SD Card, plug that into the unit, and follow the prompts. Takes around 5 minutes, and when the unit reboots, you will have a new ROM with root access. The Dasaita Launcher will be replaced with the one that comes with the ROM, but I just use FCC either way.

    See the links in my sig for more info

    PS. V4 of the Hal9k ROM is free, but if you want updates (latest version of V4.02), then you need to pay a one-time 10 Euro fee to get OTA updates. Hal9k also offers his "ModInstaller" for another 10 Euro which makes installation even easier, however the installation as I described above is so simple, it's just not needed.

    - the resolution 1024x600 is too small (600p) sometimes; in Waze it does not fit the 3 alternative routes list. Is there a way to trick the unit that it has 1280x720, and to soft-scale?

    I could fix this issue by changing the Minimum width value under the developer options. To access developer options you have to use the "adbon" password on the factory settings page.

    My head unit has been working flawlessly for a little bit less than a month aside from a few disconnects with Android Auto.

    However, today my head unit crashed 2x. Each time I heard a speaker popping distortion noise for a second and then the head unit restarted.

    The only app that was running was Spotify with the unit connected to my phone's hot spot. Weather was about 60F so it wasn't a very hot day.

    Has anyone encountered this before and if so, do you know what might be causing it?

    Just got my Max 6 in the mail today. I took off the top cover to peek inside. There is a very small heatsink that sits over the chipset, but it appears to be made out of pot metal, not aluminum or copper. Also, it has very small fins, so I doubt its ability to disipitate much heat. Furthermore, Dasaita or whichever factory they use to manufacture these units did a very poor job of aligning the thermal compound that sits between the chip and the heatsink. As dashboards are hot, confined spaces, I'm going to investigate putting a 120mm computer fan inside of the unit and rigging a new top cover. Additionally, I'm going to try and fashion some type of better heatsink than the very low-quality one that it comes with. I'm pretty sure this thing would thermal throttle or have a shorter lifespan if these steps aren't taken.

    Using ideas from this thread for inspiration and ideas for better cooling: https://forum.xda-developers.com/an...nside-look-joying-android-head-unit-t3546872/









    I'm still waiting for the Toyota harness (non-JBL, the standard one, important to match on Toyotas) to arrive, which should be here in tomorrow.

    Hello,

    ....yes, the gap between rockchip and heatsink is too big - very sad thing!!

    take a look what i did - working perfect!!

    Do you also have carplay wire/wireless chip on unit? did you see if that is able to charge your iphone with carplay on?

    ALso have you driven longer than 2 hrs? with this unit ? I had PX5 and it used to reset over using it continuously for 2hr or more. and also PX5 was not charging iPhone while carplay was on.

    If possible could any one update me on this?
    It does charge while doing CarPlay because it’s wireless so I just plug it into my charger. Works totally fine for hours on end. I’ve got an annoying bug with VLC thinking it doesn’t have delete permissions unless I manually grant it twice, but that’s unrelated. Also a bug with my iphones voice to text requires me to type a character first before it’ll pick up mic input, but I think it’s an iPhone issue.
