When my car was using CP600, the voice and video were out of sync, and the buttons on the steering wheel could not fully respond. After I switched to ApplePie, this problem disappeared. I haven't encountered the sound lag problem you mentioned. I have used it for up to 3 hours, listening to songs and watching videos. BTW, my car is Golf 2018.
Do you have the Discover Media or Pro? Does your Radio have knobs? Your car from year should have a MMB2 or MMB2.5 (without knobs)

Guys, i think i finally found the Problem of the audio Lags after 5minutes. A friend of Mine has the Same Car and the Same Version of the qualcomm Box. Everthing is the Same except for one Thing. He doesn't use a sd card. So the problem lies in the checking of the SD Card After a reboot, when the Car shuts of the USB Power. Cause the Logs are Automatically written to the SD Card, the system wants to Check the SD Card. I have a Lot Files on this Card, so checking the Card for corruption Takes Long and after 5minutes the IO Performance drastically reduces to the Point where the audio begins to lag, even If you aren't using the SD Card for playing mp3 or Something Else. Also any 3rd Party Player who scans the SD Card for Media might interfere with this and worsen the Situation.

Thanks for your answer.
I have the problem when I listen to BT music, the music is not quiet when navigation voice instructions are spoken and so you cannot hear anything that sat nav has spoken on TomTom GO. With Sygic there are no voice instructions at all. When I listen to the car radio that works well, the radio goes down quietly and you can hear GPS voice instructions.
Please help I tried the setting for the Navigation APP in ApplePie but it doesn't work.
🙏🙏🙏

Did you correctly select the navigation package name you wanted to set in the navigation APP Settings?
If you choose the right one, you should have no problem.
Did you download the two APKs you use, TomTom and Sygic, from Google Play? Or did you download it from another third-party app store? You can post the download link and I will download it to see if it is OK.

I helped you feedback this issue to my seller, and he quickly reported it to the ApplePie development team. They confirmed that the two navigation map software, TomTom go and Sygic, are already in the whitelist and do not need to be set to the navigation App type separately. The sound logic is normal. They also posted a video. The team reacted really quickly. I admire them.

Hi all,

I have an ALL Allwinner Chipset based Android 9 AI Box CP600P 4/32

I am totally new to this boxes. I followed the instruction to update the software but after I confirmed the update process it keeps flashing red endlessly. After 20 min. I disconnected the box (I know, I should not remove it during updating). After connecting it again to the car it boots up without being updated. What am I doing wrong here?
i tried to search but couldn’t find an answer.

regards

Thank you for your answer.
The problem is with Bluetooth audio because the volume is not lowered when navigation is spoken.
With car radio and car media it works very well.
Not with Bluetooth audio, please try this. Which firmware version do you have with you?

Oh I got it. This sound logic is usually invalid for Bluetooth audio, because Bluetooth audio is not a standard media stream for Android systems.

There are two Bluetooth on ApplePie.
One should be Qualcomm's own Bluetooth, which implements the profile on the mobile phone side, which belongs to the main Bluetooth device and is used to connect some Bluetooth HID devices, such as Bluetooth mice, keyboards, Bluetooth tire pressure monitoring devices, Bluetooth OBD devices, this Bluetooth You can connect 7 slave Bluetooth devices at the same time.
The other is in ApplePie, which extends a slave Bluetooth module outside of the Qualcomm processor. This Bluetooth is like a Bluetooth headset and a Bluetooth speaker, which transmits the sound of the mobile phone to ApplePie via Bluetooth. The audio data stream played on your mobile phone is directly transmitted to this slave Bluetooth module.

You are using wrong update for your box, I think there are two kinds of firmware for the cp600, android 7 and 9, but there’s a new 9 version that only works in the new rev that comes with split screen and wireless CarPlay.

Based on your picture I recommend to use 288 firmware, but I think all firmwares posted in this thread are android 7, I had that box but couldn’t get the Android 9 again, you can also ask your seller for the firmware.
Casually look in the main post of this thread, i will embed the new firmware there. There are 2 sections now. one for the CP600 with Android 7 and the CP600P with Android 9

I know that there are 2x bluetooth.
I also have CP600 and bluetooth audio and navigation instructions work perfectly there but C600 Launcher sucks sorry for the word used.
I hope for a quick solution.
W-LAN connection is also very, very bad and weak there is hardly any or slow internet. Tried with router and smartphone connection is very bad 🤔

    New update 07-26-2021 for QM8888/UX999:

    can I get the steps again on how to apply the firmware update on the Qm8888 apple pie box?

    I tried the general steps at the start of this thread but my qm8888 just boots up as per normal
    How to upgrade the firmware for ApplePie:

    Obtain the firmware upgrade package, the file named "update.zip", the file size is about 1.35G, copy update.zip to the TF card (directly in the root directory, no need to build a folder), no need to decompress, Then insert the upgrade card. The upgrade card does not have to be a blank card, and it does not have to be an upgrade file, that is, the TF card you use every day can be used as an upgrade card.

    The system detects that there is an upgrade file in the card, a pop-up window will ask whether to upgrade, immediately (within 20 seconds) click the "Cancel" button to cancel the upgrade operation, please pull out the upgrade card; if you click "OK" or do nothing ( Wait 20 seconds for the timeout", the system will enter the upgrade operation.

    First, copy the upgrade file to the internal storage space. The copy progress will go from 0% to 100%. After the copy is completed, the system will pop up a window prompting that it will automatically restart. At this point, you can observe the red indicator light of the box. When it starts to flash, you can already pull out the upgrade card. The remaining steps will be completed automatically. You just need to wait to enter the ApplePie interface again.

    The entire upgrade process takes about 10 minutes.

    Note: It is best not to power off during the upgrade process, and do not pull out the TF card during the process of copying the upgrade file to the internal memory. Of course, if the above situation occurs, ApplePie will not be damaged, and it will work normally after restarting. It's just that your upgrade process was cancelled this time, and the normal upgrade cannot be completed.
