Hi all,

After 3+ years with PX5 unit - i upgraded to a Mekede M500S (Navifly 7862) unit but i have few issues with it in my car (Chevrolet sonic)

1. Brightness control - there are 2 options in the settings, by headlights or by time. headlights made the night mode always activated no matter what the car lights knob set too (it always on Auto mode), this was tested with Riase and XP canbus boxes - get same behiver not sure why.
the other option is time mode and i guess this supposed to got to night mode brightness at night but can't see how to control time-range of this settings, the screen stays on day time on the first couple hours of night here.

2. Bluetooth app - why the hell i can't make it go to background and continue to use navigation when i'm having a call?!?!?! this one get me crazy i can't see any sense in this. on the similier platform (ts10) my brother have it works exactly as my old PX5 unit. is it possible in any way to solve this weird limit??

with the first issue i can live with, the bluethooth issue might make me go back to the old PX5 unit and sent this unit to hell.

Thanks.

I wanted to know why you bought instead of TS10 M500S, is it better than they differ?

So I'm keen to replace my 18month old Joying, which for some reason is not working as advertised, and the conversation with Joying could best be described as frustrating.
My thoughts are:

1) A new joying
2) A new teyes
3) A new Mekede

I have read the whole 86 pages of the Teyes thread, and tried to do some Joying research with the supplier, but I'm leaning toward the Mekede, partly because of the online support here for the underlying H/W by @surfer63 ...et al.

Use case: 4G data and hotspot required of device, WAZE, FM Radio, Spotify, Internet Radio,, Some video streaming. Maybe 360 camera in the future?

Questions:

1) I have a Joying fitted to my 2018 Toyota Kluger (AUS) Highlander, see attached pic. Is there any chance the harness/canbus is the same for the Mekede? I ask, because I can seem to see how you order a vehicle specific model for my car.

2) I'm inclined to go for the M600S or even M700S, but cant seem to tell if these have IPS or QLED screens. I want the most ram avail to future proof.

3) Is the form factor of these the same as the joying I currently have? for the reasons in #1 I can seem to find a link to a vehicle specific device?

4) would I be looking at like for like screen size, in spite of the hardware buttons on the mekede?

5) happy for suggestions on where to buy.

Thanks in advance.

Your use case: In general this will work on any of the mentioned units. With regard to FM-radio: On all FYT models the RDS-AF sucks. Since 2016, despite a complete library change, it still doesn't function. But as you have a Joying you already know.

1) No. The Joying harness comes with 20-pin unit plug. The Mekede/NaviFly with a 16-pin unit plug.

2) QLED or IPS? That still hasn't been solved. Is QLED indeed QLED or simply "pushed up brilliance" on an IPS. My previous Joying IPS was excellent. My current Mekede IPS is excellent, also with very bright light. With sun from behind shining directly onto the screen, every (!) screen is hardly visibile.

3) Form factor: The Joyings are still DIN-2 or DIN-1. Most other units nowadays are the integrated type. However, if you mean the "facia", the plastic surrounding around the screen: That is indeed different per reseller. Either you search for a reseller that delivers a facia fitting to your car, or your buy an universal unit.

4) Completely up to your taste. But I prefer the larger screens (unless you always drive on bumpy roads where big buttons might be nicer ;))

5) What do you mean? Joying at Joying. T'eyes at T'eyes. Mekede/NaviFly at the official store on AliExpress.

Thankyou for the detail as always much appreciated
