    Hi fellows, maybe I'm in the wrong section of the forum to post a question:

    I have a OWNICE K7 TS10 HeadUnit and I see that the unit is taking too much time to get GPS signals, I tried with another unit (and the same antenna) and it works very well, but not with the OWNIKE K7

    Does anyone have the same issue ?,

    Does anyone know how to fix it ?, specific app ?, firmware related ?

    Thanks in advance

    Download GPS TEST.
    Connect the radio to internet, open gps test, settings, clear and update AGPS, wait 2-3 minutes and restart(not shut down and open, I reset, restart).
    After the radio it's ON again, open gps test (car in open place, no garage, need to see well the sky) and wait.
    At the begining you"ll see 2-3 satellites, minures passing the number increase.
    After this operation, the next time the radio "fix" 10-15 satellites in 10-15 seconds.

    Problem solved, I enter the engeneering mode, SGPS app and set it to custom (and let default values) instead of GPS+GLONASS+BEIDOU default option

    I tried with other options (GPS+BD2+GLONASS, etc... and it idin't work well)

    Using default option the GPS seems to warm quicly and catch 13, 15, 18 satellites quickly (2, 4 max 5 before chaging options)

    FYI: These people from OWNICE also leave RADIO area settings pointing to CHINA, I bought it to be used in france.

    Meaning that the unit hasn't been pre-configured to be used in the customers'country

    My opinion: Chinese people want money money money money money, that's all

    Hi... I bought the same product you use...
    I have the same problems...
    Wouldn't it be rude to ask how to get into engineering mode???

      Little story about my Ownice K7

      Trying to get root privileges on this super encrypted firmware, I accidentally flashed a bad vbmeta_system and vbmeta_vendor partitions and this put my unit in BRICK mode

      The unit shows only my car logo, no more no less

      Tried to flash the original firmware by the KEY1 to ground method = no boot
      Tried other firmwares from Ownice = no boot

      Tries everything = no boot

      I ask for help to manu supplier in china and "VOICI" the results

      Question: Hello, I have a problem with my TS10 unit, and need to boot the unit in USB PC mode to flash the vbmeta partitions back

      Answers fom china:

      1-) Supplier 1: Ok I will send you a new radio apk with french frequencies by default

      2-) Supplier 2: Yes you can put key1 to ground and reflash tour firmware

      3-) Supplier 3: We will NEVER SHARE TO PUBLIC the way to put the card in boot PC mode

      Final result: The unit is going to the trash bin


      The only supplier that "understands" my question was Supplier 3, and the answer was (not expected but...) clear, NO WAY

      Thhe other supplier must have very bad translators
      If I saw your message, or even this message board, it would give me a pause about buying anything based on TS10/Topway platform. However, being new to Android HU scene, I'm curious if other HU platforms do let you do what you're asking TS10 vendors to help you with?

      Myself I do hope that, at least, TS10 can be rooted so I have a control over my unit.

      I don"t understand why apps go away? Are these apps not included in the firmware? If not, where are these apps stored? I reflashed with the old firmware, but not get this app back.

      Read some time ago something like:

      "Ask your wife to take the pin and press RST button while you put off the positive from the car's battery (at least) 10 seconds (or more) and then put back the positive to battery, and ask your wife to release the RST button, the radio starts in recovery".

      Don't forget to insert your USB stick before all that process

      A thing like that but maybe in another words

      Give it a try fellow !
      Post the reply from Ownice for your reference.

      Attention: Wrong update files and wrong steps which will cause the head unit go dead,and cannot be powered on any more. Please do not update the system except that you got the right files and the right working steps from the seller.

      Please be informed that the update files for different series/items are very different, for example: file for 1280*720 & 1024*600 is different, file for item with 360 camera or without is different. In order to offer you the right files, we must get the below information from you:
      • PHOTO of the "setting --> about" interface which we can see the MCU & SYSTEM VERSION.
      • If your device cannot power on any more, please provide us ORDER# or BARCODE#. (Barcode No. stuck on the package box and on the back side of head unit)

      salut si vous pouvez m'aider. je viens d'acheter un ts10 comme toi. mon problème est que pendant la mise à jour, la voiture est mise en mode économie de batterie et l'unité centrale refuse de démarrer "écran noir". J'ai essayé plusieurs méthodes de réinitialisation pour démarrer en mode de récupération mais rien à faire. Si vous me dites comment réinitialiser, il vous en sera reconnaissant.

      Plugged in one of the USB ports a stick with your firmware

      Put the KEY1 or KEY2 wire to ground

      carefully insert a clip or pin into the RST hole an push

      The unit will boot in recovery mode and will start flashing the firmware

      Hello fellows, Magisk 23 released

      I tried to root the TS10 boot image with Magisk 23 but it does not work yet (unit enters in bootloop mode) even if the magisk log says that the image was rooted

      Using the same method as for the TS9 firmware
      1-) K_support tool to decrypt the boot image
      2-) Magisk 23 to patch the boot.img
      3-) K-support to crypt the patched image
      4-) USB key (with patched boot image) attached to unit
      5-) Key1 cable to ground and pin in reset hole

      ---- Flash DONE. ----

      but nothing more (bootloop)

      I revert the original boot and recover the headunit with no issues

      In my very own opinion, I think that there's another some kind of protection after boot that inhibits the firmware to continue loading

      Keep searching !

      im new to this, i just got the k7 w/360 cam. do you guys know a way to change whats on the main screen to show something. like dvr on the top left.
      does your HU also take forever to load because it loads the 360 cam? is there a way to disable that?
      I'malso searching a wai to send the 360camera startup to the background

      Their launcher is customizable, but only for links located in bottom, if you need more control over the main interface, go to the Play Store and search for car launchers, you have many
