Hi All, thank you for all of your posts, i've very much enjoyed reading trough them and I got a lot smarter into these units because of it.
I recently bought a Carlinkit CPC-200 T-box to use in my Polestar 2, which just recently received Carplay functionality through an OTA software update. I though I was clever to order this carplaybox but I can't seem to get it to work.
It works fine when I tried it in a Ford Focus and a Renault Kadjar from friends but in my car the box is recognised by the car, but then it restarts itself, this happens over and over.
I read that when first plugging it in it checks the screen resolution and then restarts itself in the correct screen dimensions, I was thinking it might be that the resolution in the Polestars screen isn't in the list of possible dimensions for the carplaybox. and that it keeps rebooting as a result.

I've also tried several software updates, none which had any effect so far. I noticed there is a new CPC-200 update (2022-07-04) which I haven't tried yet. this is on the TF card now, but I have to install it through a friends car every time :cautious:.
If that doesn't work I want to try the applepie firmware with Piekitchen.
and if that doesn't work I am out of idea's.

If anyone has any ideas please tell me, I am eager to get this going.

May 30th update is so stable to me, maybe you can try it. Enter to autokit web site and Tbox section and push "see more". I have the AI box carlinkit CPC-200

However reading your post maybe is something related to the USB, maybe trying with other cable.

Thanks, I have the latest update installed (20220530) but it still doesn’t work. I tried downloading another on from the 1st page on this thread but when I try to install I get the message “update package from illegal manufacturer”

Update procedure is mostly the same on all boxes:

NOTE: (do not power off the MMB box during the upgrade process)
  1. Preparation:
  2. Unpack the downloaded zip and place the unpacked Update.zip into the root of a sd card/usb drive
  3. Rename the OTA upgrade file to update.zip or upgrade_pkg.zip (for CP600);
  4. After the MMB system detects the upgrade package, the screen will show a screen to upgrade. According to the point, select [Upgrade Now]
  5. The system will automatically copy the OTA upgrade file to the MMB box
  6. After the copy is completed, the system will restart and install (MMB box indicator light effect: red flashing)
  7. After installation is complete, the program will be loaded (MMB box indicator light effect: blue flashing)
  8. After the start up is complete, you will enter the main interface of the MMB box (MMB box indicator light effect: blue)


If you want to completly factoryreset a device you can try the following PINs:

4545
0808
2691
0312




If you encounter any problems please contact your seller and tell them your head unit (version).
Not all car manufactures have implemented the carplay service correctly, so consider also updating your head unit on next service or contact you dealer for it.

General discussions about these boxes are found here:

Im not responisble for the provided firmwares and i am not a developer, so don´t ask me questions to releasenotes or request features! i

Thanks for your thread, I read it, but didn't find anything about Ownice Auto Ai Box, have you got anything from the factory/seller

New update

With the latest Google Maps update, the ok Google detection option is no longer available.
Thus the fix for the audio quality during navigation and music playback can't be applied anymore.

Anyone has any suggestion on how to go about this?

And also is there a way I stop YouTube Music from auto resuming the music?
When I pause music, exit to car factory UI to listen to radio, tap on Carplay to return to Box UI, YouTube Music auto resumes playing and cuts off my radio. I want to listen to radio.
Any suggestions?

Does anyone know if you can set a security pin code for these devices? Specifically the snapdragon 665 variants.
