I come back to your question about the lighting of the symbols on the left. This has little to do with Canbus, it's a setting....
go to Settings - General - Backlight Control -off
and now the backlight works when you turn on the light.
or
Settings - General - Backlight Control - on
now you can adjust the backlight according to the clock, e.g. 1900h - 0600h
It can be part of the canbus depending on how the car is wired as the signal wire for illumination can be via canbus

Please take a picture and post it. If it's the Car Info I'm thinking about, that is for OBDII. If you want to see Car Info with more/any info, you may need an OBDII module...but that's a whole other can of worms.

Canbus is a module used to communicate with various systems in the car. The Canbus module only interacts with systems that are available on your car. If the head unit doesn't need any of the items or your car doesn't provide them, then you won't see them. Is anything not working on your head unit? Typical things that the Canbus module might provide are:

- steering wheel buttons
- rear view camera
- backup camera tracking - lines that turn/bend based on steering wheel angle
- air conditioning/heater controls
- door open/close indicators
- audio/amplifier controls

Also, even if your vehicle has some of these features, they may or may not go through the Canbus. Some, none or all of the features may need the Canbus.

What year is your car? There are usually more features going through Canbus for newer cars. Mine is a Kia Sorento 2012 and while I was provided with a Canbus module, only the sound for the amplifier was going through the Canbus. Unfortunately the Canbus software still didn't work with it and I had to get another module. In any case, even if some of the above features goes through the Canbus, it doesn't mean it will work.

So, is there anything specific you're looking for?
Another thing you didn’t mention is the type of Canbus box, if something doesn’t work with it’s specific Canbus box doesn’t mean that won’t work with other Canbus box.

Hello everybody. I have had the cc3 for a few months and I always find the problem with the FM radio, the signal is very weak compared to the standard car radio, plus AF and LOC do not work perfectly in the sense that if you feel badly a frequency is not there. changes immediately or does not change it at all, has someone had the same problem as me and solved it? Thank you
First obvious question: have you connected the OEM FM antenna to the head unit?

I solved this problem with an amplified antenna.

My only complaint is microphone isn’t great but speed of unit is good, frequent updates is good, features of the unit is good. Support is slow but that’s due to language and time zones

Thanks for the response. Here's a couple more questions if you don't mind.
  • What can you tell me the screen quality? more specifically its brightness under (almost) direct sun light? I had another (rater crapy) android unit before, and regretted buying it, because the screen was so dim that I couldn't read it most of the time.
  • Is the software too buggy? Too many pay walls? From 1 to 10, how do you rate the software?
  • Did you try the external mic?

Gosh, I feel some resentment. What would you suggest instead?
I own two vehicles with two FYT units (FYT = 116 and FYT =53 uis7862).
No resentment at all as I didn't pay hundreds more for the same hardware with a modified/crippled FYT based OS. Teyes isn't a brand in terms you might think it is.

Screen quality is very good however in my car I did have issues with glare in sunlight. I do have a panoramic roof. I bought an anti glare screen protector which seems to help. The brightness is good on the display and it is sharp and vivid. The software can have its moments but I’d say 9 out of 10 compared to other fyt machines I’ve used.
Yes I do have the external mic connected. I’m completely disabled the internal one.

There is no need to remove anything or damage the board. Unclip the plastic cover from the rear side of the screen, unclip the ribbon cable from the board and put a small piece of Sellotape over the two end pins on the right of the cable as you look at it. This way you can easily remove the tape if you change your mind. You need good eyes or a magnifying glass!

    Anyone here that uses whatsapp and can tell me why my contacts are doubled up?
    From what I could gather the double up ones are all contact that also have whatsapp.
    They are saved on Gmail and only see one single contact on my phone and other devices, but in the Teyes cc3 (latest fw) there two of each.
    See pics
    Cheers
    Up?




    Also, new fw is out.
    Feedbacks are welcome

    Hi
    this is basically the same function as the 9 dots icon on the right side and it is correct that it refers to the app page and it has no further meaning. It's not just since the last SW upgrade, but at least since December 21.

    Thanks, so I should be seeing movement on the vision screen from the gyro then, regardless of GPS signal. Before I try a factory reset is there anything else I should check or should it just be working?
    My GPS has failed so i dont get movement or speed showing on that fancy screen where the car is moving anymore. i dont know if that relates to your issue or not

    it should work right from the Start.

    I don’t have any experience other than a 6/128 unit but I would strongly suggest saving until you can afford one. Don’t go for less memory as you will regret it in the long run.

    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.
