Many have posted, unless you are particularly wanting Teyes many better units cheaper. Teyes are making it more and more difficult by locking down the system which is introducing more and more problems for the user.
What are some of these options, with dash trims built for your specific car?

If you read back through the thread you will find other unit recommendations. The dash trims are provided to suppliers by a third party to Teyes etc so not specific. My personal recommendation would be Navifly as I had a great support experience with them but there are others as good and as a bonus much cheaper than Teyes.

I have a CC3 since January 22 for my Toyota LC 70Series (without CANBus). I am very happy with it, as additional extras I have OBDII, DAB+, ext. Microphone and TPM. Everything works except the OBDII option, the dongle cannot be paired - so far the problem could not be solved by DanTeyes Australia and the developers in China, at least the whole thing works with the Teyes dongle and the "Torque Pro" app on the mobile phone - So not a big problem for me. The support via Dan Teyes was always very quick and helpful - so "thumbs up" for Dan and the unit from me.

I am happy with it...... BUT. Dan gave you great support BUT.

Are you serious, you brought something- paid more for it than other FYT devices- it doesn't work as promised BUT great.

All these things work fine on two of my generic FYT 116 and 53 devices - OBD, plus bluetooth and bluetooth LE on my Valentine One gen 2. Teyes is garbage

Exactly why I am so critical of Teyes. They lock you into there high priced peripherals and walk away when they do not work. They expend all their time to lock down their firmware so you can not work around bugs and improve on the userability of the unit. Let's not even talk about support which is sadly lacking in lots of areas including supporting their own resellers like Dan as you found.

There is a setting somewhere where you can normalise the volume, you could try that option. I find it more louder than the other apps.

Like I said I don’t know that headunit and can’t comment on it. You have asked me for the updated carlink file in a Teyes cc3 thread. You’re very lucky that the apk hasn’t caused you issues. It may already have caused you issues which you are not aware of. You need to speak to the supplier.

    A humbling experience this is.. marchnz is going to enjoy it.

    I found the fault. A loose pin in the supplied kia connector.
    When I used my flash multimeter I must have been push enough to make contact with the steering wheel circuit resistance.
    Plug it into the AHU, and it would go open circuit.

    I only found it because I managed to loosen the single USB pins for the factory USB.

    This is a common problem in this type of pinout! Not exclusive to T'eyes

    Desoldering isn't necessary. There's instructions somewhere in this thread to tape the 2 mic pins on the ribbon cable. I just desoldered to be extra sure.

    I ended up finding how to access Engineer Mode via our Russian friends at 4pda.to. It involves opening the calculator app and entering a secret code (too afraid to link it since it's easy to permanently screw up you unit but if you search, you'll find it). Regardless, this was not helpful as there's no microphone level setting in there (also confirmed by people on 4pda.to). Maybe there's another secret settings menu I'm not aware of via Phone app?

    I just ordered a mic pre-amplifier https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JHWSX2C/. It's cheaper on Aliexpress but didn't want to wait 2 weeks. It's not an ideal solution but I'm hoping it helps.


    Ooh, may try this. Any pointers for which files you changed and what settings you used?
    The information was in the main hardware post.

    persist.sys.zlink.mic.vol=9.9
    persist.audio.mic.senstivity=1
    persist.btmic.gain=10
    persist.btspk.gain=7

    Pop the above in a config file and reflash the firmware.

    I think i am going to buy one of these soon. Does anyone know how large of a USB drive can be used? it seems it would be cheaper and easier to have external usb storage than to purchase a larger internal space.

    I'm planning on having FLAC files of all my favorite music plugged into the unit and using spotify for more random listening. if you have a large drive how does the system handle it? is it slow to open or scroll directories that are full of files?
    I'm using a 2 TB thumb drive without issue

    Lost gps signal.

    Has anyone faced the issue of no gps signal.
    It was working one day the next it just doesn't work. Tried restarting and still nothing. GPS test app also shows no signal. I am inclined to do a factory reset but wanted to check if anyone faced a similar issue first.
    Thanks
    *I've had the CC3 in my car for 5 months now.
    The included GPS antenna sucks fat donkey balls. If you can't connect the CC3 to your cars OEM GPS, I highly recommend you buy a better antenna. Something like a BGL-4504GNSS (great, expensive) or Beitan BA-0010 (very good, cheap).
    Also check the connection if you just tightened the plug with your fingers. Use a wrench and secure it properly.

    HI Peeps

    I am after some support in regards to whether the CC3 is compatible with my prius alpha HYBRID
    chassis code = ZVW40W

    Now the photo i have shown you is the teyes vs some OEM ebay one which has the same code. They look identical .
    Can anyone confirm that they have a Teyes installed in a prius alpha and it works ok?

    Thanks
    Just get a generic FYI uis7862 device, save money and be happy that you're not locked into accessories by made up brand teyes (who sell FYT units and modify the software to create vendor lockin on accessories and software subscriptions.) Generic device - e.g Mekede, navifly, joying and others

    If you need deep integration with climate controls etc, that is what the canbus interface provides for and is an extra item.

    Teyes announced another CC3 update for April 2021, here is the translated changelog.



    The following important updates are expected to be released for the CC3 software at the end of April.
    The new version will add the following features:

    1.Added Cam REC software. With this application, you can record from a rear view camera. The recording files are saved to a flash card.

    2.Added TEYES YAHU, the world's first 3D music player for the automotive industry (due to technical complexity, work may not be completed in April).

    3.In the device settings, a function has been added to change the screen brightness depending on the time of sunrise and sunset.

    4.The system version has been updated. Fixed the issue of crashing the Google Play app in some areas.

    5.Added setting for the sensitivity level of voice commands. If you feel that certain keywords easily trigger voice commands, you can lower the sensitivity level. In addition to Russian and English, a voice control function has been added for 7 countries.

    6.Added CAR LINK software which supports Android Auto via wired connection and Car Play via wired and wireless connection. Please note that CARPLAY only supports this feature on CC3 devices released in 2021. Android Auto has no limits. For CARPLAY wired connection, you must use the original iPhone USB cable. When using CARPLAY wirelessly, make sure the mobile phone is connected via Bluetooth.

    7.Updated EQ software and added a phase switch. The volume and sound effects of the subwoofer change according to the volume of the head unit.

    8.Added a new layout for the main screen, as well as automatic switching between day and night modes. From the home screen, you can directly speed dial, view driving data, compass and GPS information. The 4 main music players can be switched with one key. Redesigned and increased image size when viewed in picture-in-picture mode.

    9Optimized software for making Bluetooth phone calls. Added a choice of avatars in favorite contacts. Opened data synchronization with the main interface.

    10.Added TEYES RADIO and private internet station. Musical compositions can be downloaded and shared through the site mp3.teyes.ru

    11.Steering Wheel Key Customization Tutorial has been added for multiple languages.

    12.Added automatic OTA update function. In the future, we will provide 2 update methods: manual download update and automatic update.

    13.Added multi-finger touch control function. To find out how to use this feature, please see the personal settings section.

    14.Added the ability to slide the application menu to the right side of the screen. Swiping from below returns to the previous level. The function is supported no matter which interface you are in!

    Hi. earlier you said taht you dont't recommend buying Teyes for people outside Russia and now, that Teyes focuses on European region. What about other countries from Europe other than Russia? I'm from Poland and I own Ford Focus mk 3 (2011-1015)
    I am in France, and my CC3 gives me complete satisfaction on my Ford Focus 2. I do not see what the restrictions would be due to the development by the Russians

    Check if the OBD has good connection with the car socket. Pull it out and put it in again. Scan for Bluetooth devices and you must find it there. Also check the pins on the OBD adapter and the car socket, to see if there are any bent pins that don't connect properly. Also I think I heard somewhere that it's good to connect the OBD before you start the engine.
    Thank you for the advice. I did all of the above, but unfortunately with the same result as before.
    The CC3 sees the OBD2 adapter in the Bluetooth menu, but after some time attempting to connect I get a "Connected Unsuccessfully" message ( or at least that is what I believe it says, because the message is cut off )

    Also I would like to do a follow up regarding the new firmware. I can confirm that with it the device remains in sleep while the ignition of the car is off, even after 1h and 45min once the ignition was turned on the device woke up instantly. Where as before with the original firmware, after about 5min the device would do a clean / full boot.

    And for those looking to get Google assistant working a possible workaround would be to trigger the assistant via one of your steering wheel buttons.
    #1 go to Settings / General
    #2 Set the Google Assistant as the Navi App option
    #3 Go to Settings / Device / Steering Wheel Setting
    #4 Map one of your steering wheel buttons to launch the Navi app.

    Now just before anyone get way too excited, this is not a perfect solution.
    While I'm able to do things like opening apps ( YouTube, waze, 360 panorama app ) asking for direction via google maps, playing specific Playlist via Spotify. I discovered that it's not possible to make or receive phone calls via the assistant, and most likely there are other things that I did not test or discovered.
