Exactly the same issue for me with PX5 and android 6.

Since upgrading to android 8, maps does not crash when starting to navigate.

Can you let me know which version of android you hard running?

I'm not sure if it's revolutionary or not but I was able to side load android auto too, it works for nav and music but not for calls which is understandable.

(Edit: now using headunit reloaded for full Android Auto experience inc. calls)

Hello, so i am having a bit of a problem with sygic. Whenever i start searching for a destination, the app crashes. I've added all the maps in the proper folder, everything is looking okay. I've downloaded the newest sygic and added the newest maps available, same thing. It crashes whenever i try to search for a destination.

So do you have any idea how i can solve the issue ?

Hello everyone,
I have been trying to update my radio for a few days, at first I tried to do 6.0 to 8.0 then 6.0 to 9.0, and now I'm just trying to update the mcu and firmware from hot audio for 6.0. None of it worked, it's like my radio refuses to take any update. Now it's saying my SD card is not the right format, and it tries to correct it but it fails. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'll include pictures below for my radio information.

motherboard and core board with DSP module on

Hi, I am currently using px5 KLD one.
It's been almost 2years and nothing to majorly complain about this unit so far except the quality of sounds.
I am fully aware of having a proper head unit like sony, alpine or pioneer is the easiest way to solve the problem if I put sound quality on the center of interests but I guess I chose convenience over sound quality somehow.

these days, head units with DSP module are widely on the market and I heard some sellers sell motherboard and core board with DSP module on for PX5 KLD. I just can't figure out where to get it tho.

I spoke to the seller I originally bought the headunit from but he just kept ignoring my messages after said he had it or could get it if I wanted it.

Does anybody know how to get motherboard and core board with DSP module on?

I dont think any manufacturer or seller will provide a motherboard only, unless you are under warranty and demonstrated some malfunctioning

Hello,
I have a px5 mtce_gs and I tried the developer options from
Developer Options:
Standard 7 tap on build no. does not work on these head unit. To enable Developer Option, install this one:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...te.devshortcut
And it's not working, when you load the app it says, you have to enable developer options first.
Anyone know another way of enabling them.

Hi,
I bought new device as replacement for my old t8 allwiner device.
It is px5 and i have problem with colors on screen. It is too dark and colors are not real. Red color is not red it is more like orange.
I think that contrast is to high. Can i adjust it?

I have a Problem with my Xtrons. Everything worked fine after I swapped out the original Audi Radio with the RNSE looking one from Xtrons. Yesterday I installed a new Amp and Speakers and now theres a hissing/butzing sound when I turn on the car. When the Unit is turned off there is no buzzing, so I guess its the Xtrons Unit. Any fixes?

I think your HU is picking up noise, from power or source line. ground the unit well and try to put noise filters on the lines. Good luck.

    I thought it would be better if we consolidated all the discussion on the PX5 head units into a single thread and I will try my best to group all the useful information in the first few posts when more information becomes available. I think this will help with discussion on these head units and help improve everyone's experience

    Post 2: Firmware
    Post 3: Tips, Tricks and Fixes - Rooting instruction here
    Post 4: Bugs/Issues
    Post 5: Useful apps
    Post 6: Useful links

    For those not familiar with the PX5 Head unit, the specs are below:
    OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
    CPU: Rockchip PX5 A53 Octa-Core
    RAM: 2GB DDR3
    ROM: 32GB
    Audio output: 4*45W
    Features:
    1. Built-in Radio Tuner (RDS Enabled) (18 FM and 12 AM stations Preset)
    2. Built-in USB & SD Slot
    3. Region Free DVD Player
    4. Screen Mirroring
    5. Steering wheel controls (SWC) and Canbus interface
    Optional compatible accessories:
    • DAB+ USB Tuner
    • TPMS
    • 4G/3G Dongle
    • OBD02 Module
    • Camera
    • DVR
    • External Mic

    The head unit comprises of two parts:
    • a MicroController Unit(MCU) board, which controls physical buttons and A/V inputs/outputs to/from the headunit. This board interacts with Android OS.
    • ANDROID part. The main Operating System.
    Both MCU and Android ROM interact together to achieve the functionality of the head unit.

    Manufacturers/reseller:
    • GS - XTRONS
    • HA - HotAudio/Dasaita
    • KGL - Erisins
    • MX - Witson
    • LM - Erisins/Pumpkin

    A comparison between PX3 and PX5 can be found posted here by @FauxDreams with some previous discussion on PX5 in that thread as well:
    PX3 Vs. PX5 initial impressions, some issues/findings after a day of ownership etc

    Some information I found on the CPU:
    Rockchip PX5 Press Release
    12
    I got the device on RX5.
    I started work on the firmware.
    11
    *Warning: Do not install 1024x600 fw on 800x480 HU*
    It has been reported that it will not display properly once installed.

    An update usually consist of two files:
    The Android ROM (update.zip) and it is usually compatible with any head unit of the same model (MTCD) and CPU (PX5).
    The MCU (dmcu.img) is specific for each manufacturer and it should never be updated on other manufacturer's MCU update file (unpredicted response from physical buttons - or CAN bus responses, or bricking the unit).
    However, it has been tested and confirmed that JY, KD, GD and now HA MCU are cross-compatible Verified cross compatible MCU thread (thanks for info @marchnz(
    Update at your own risk!

    Installation instruction:
    Unzip update.img to the root of the GPS SD Card.
    Make sure you Don't include the dmcu.img if your MCU does not match the MCU of the firmware.

    Latest Stock Firmware/Custom Firmware/MCU:

    Update 2017-11-07: The new versions of my modded DAB App can be found here:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/an...b-app-realzoulous-modded-version-com-t3609608

    ---------------------------------
    I took above DAB+ App "YHX_DAB+20170328.apk" and created my own one.
    With less bugs and even more features.

    YHX_DAB+20170328-zoulou-2017-04-09.apk

    Change Log (compared to YHX_DAB+20170328.apk)
    - Enormously reduced CPU consumption
    - No audio stuttering when app running in background
    - black background image
    - bigger display of station logo
    - changed "radio" logo => "DAB+"
    - station name is bigger and has same color as signal bars
    - moved PTY info more to the left
    - First entry in station list is padded
    - NEW: station frequency is shown below the signal bars
    - NEW: Record audio of currently playing station. On/Off with the red button right hand-side of the signal bars
    - NEW: Another way to filter station list for only specific PTY

    ATTENTION: You *must* first uninstall the "old" DAB+ app. No update is possible! Then install this one.

    FYI: This app will cease to start after March 2018.
