I have a Skoda Superb which had a cheap CE headunit when I bought it. That gave a compass bearing to the in car display. I replaced it with a MTCD headunit and lost the compass display - so I would say that MTCD units do not supply this. However some VAG cars (which don't come with the more expensive oem satnav units) have a separate compass sensor. It is possible to get that sensor, install it and configure canbus to use it instead of the satnav integral compass.
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
*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!
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.
