I have taken delivery and installed my CC3 and am generally happy with its performance.
I cannot say the same for Teyes australia and would recommend ordering from Aliexpress. Teyes Aus seems cheaper but he does not include the standard AHD camera or offer of lifetime Teyes voice offer and delivery is via the cheapest slowest shipping possible and you miss out on Aliexpress 14 day satisfaction postage paid return which is excellant.

I also installed the Deelife TPMS and disabled Teyes TPMS but it seems to have a problem in that the Deelife app stops working with an error message frequently and I need to reboot the Head unit to get the app working again.
I am unsure how to trouble shoot the problem or indeed whether I need to look for another TPMS solution. The reason I went for Deelife is that it unlike the Teyes TPMS has external sensors including one for the spare tyre.

New firmwares with fota support (since 15.06) contain only these three files due to changes in partitions structure. Any errors you get is probably related to poor usb stick or wrong filesystem format (has to be fat32)

Hi surfer63,

What <100 unit would you recommend that can do Android Auto and Apple CarPlay?
Or may be I'm too old and don't understand how would such unit like Teyes send/receive calls from my cell phone? Or play music from Spotify collection on my phone? Is there any place I can read about this new Android HU and their abilities?
Thanks!
If you really must/want Android Auto, buy a < 100 euro/dollar 1G/16GB A7 based unit and use that with Android auto. It will be too slow for modern navigation apps or other fancy stuff, but will still function as radio and media player AND as Android auto unit.

Hi mastrv,
May I assume you are from Canada? :) Me too.
How do you like your SPro? I'm trying to understand how does such unit work with your calls and messages? How are phone calls are routed? How will HU display incoming call, text?...

Thanks!
I have an SPro and I also wanted to use the built-in SIM ability. I also bought an external SIM adapter as I didn't want to remove the head unit to access the SIM slot if I needed to. However, I found that the head unit did not support all of the LTE bands for my carrier, Freedom Mobile. So, what I do now is to create a hotspot on my phone and have the head unit connect to my phone's hotspot. You don't actually need Android Auto just to use the data from your phone SIM.

I have a few Android apps that I don't think would work with Android Auto. They include my Tailwind garage door app, my August lock app, my Ring doorbell app and a few others. I don't think I'd be able to use those through the head unit if I was using Android Auto. From what I understand, Android Auto will only show apps that are enabled to work or show up in Android Auto...and the apps are installed on your phone and not the head unit. I also read that while using Android Auto through the head unit, the phone is not really usable.

FYI, Google Maps and Waze have offline modes that save specific maps or previous routes that can be used without an internet connection as well.

With my current setup I usually use Waze and PowerAmp split-screen with Waze taking 2/3 of the screen and PowerAmp the remaining 1/3 where PowerAmp is playing music from a 128GB USB flash drive.

I was reading up on Android Auto and it looks like there's a way to use it on any head unit and also other devices, such as tablets, that use Android 4.1 and later. There's an app call Headunit Reloaded, available through the Play store, that runs on head units and connects to Android Auto running on a phone. It connects to Android Auto through a USB cable and even through WiFi. You'll have to read up on requirements to make it work. I may try it out just to see what it's like and what Android Auto is like.

@Goldenmeadow, I like my SPro. Unfortunately, TEyes no longer makes the SPro.

I believe most, if not all, head units connect to a phone using Bluetooth for both handling calls and listening to music on the phone. Not sure about text messages. Not sure about call routing. Incoming calls are displayed through the bluetooth app on the head unit. This could be full screen or a small popup window...then handsfree interaction.

The CC3 would be the same, I believe.

Sorry. I can't tell you. For me the only reason to advise such a cheap model is to users who "only" want to use it with Google Auto or Car Play.
I don't look into these cheap models. Next to that: You can buy a slow model (CPU) with decent FM and audio chip (see my post a few pages earlier).
But I would recommend to buy a full-featured unit with AC8257 or PX5, SC9853i or PX6, uis7862 CPU (in increasing performance) with good FM and audio chip (if you want a DAB+ module, the FM chip is not important), and simply forget about Android auto or Apple Carplay. (but that's my vision. Please believe in your own :))

With a connected phone, phone calls are routed directly to your unit.

Search F-droid and Google Play Store. There are multiple apps (to be installed on your phone) that can read the text message out loud to you using Google TTS or another TTS framework (Acapella or others). This audio output is on its turn also redirected via BT to the unit, just like phone calls or BT music.

    Can some one upload the carlink app for Android auto? I installed one from 4pda and it didn't work. I tried downloading several other ones and they say connecting>connection successful and then the app closes. Or is there a certain setting i have to change? I remember it worked before. I even tried s different cable and same thing happens.

    Just purchased the Highlander3 CC3 64GC with 6gb ram. My Highlander is the 2018 LTD model with backup camera, navigation, and steering wheel control. I understand Teyes will supply ALL cables and accessories to install the radio. Is this true? I not what other connectors must I purchase. Also does this unit connect to my stock microphone or does it include a separate microphone I must install? Does this unit connect to my stock backup camera? I am not looking to upgrade my backup camera or install a front camera. In order to use Android Auto I must connect my phone to the radio USB connector # 2 or # 3 I believe. When I connect the radio do these USB connectors from the Teyes unit connect to my existing stock USB ports in my car? Also I bought a power subwoofer which uses an RCA input. I don't see an RCA out port on the Teyes unit. Am I missing something. Any assistance on the install would be appreciated. Last thing is the Teyes website installation video for the 2018 Toyota Highlander is in Russian. Is there a link to this video with English subtitles or any other English Highlander install videos. Thank you in advance.
    Teyes has RCA out for front, back and sub. Comes as cable harness which is connected on one of the ports in the back.

    I have done the latest update via FOTA. It works but still the head unit is still very rigid. Hopefully the next update will enable the main page to be customizable like what those 3rd party has done to enable the user to to setup your own main page to your needs. Think this will attract more people to get this Teyes head units.

    Hi Guys, I received my Teyes CC3 + DVR + Reverse Camera for VW Polo yesterday. After adding my Google account in the HU, it deleted all my contacts. I noticed it only a little later when my WhatsApp started showing them as unknown numbers. I checked Google Contacts and confirmed the same. Strange! @TEYESAustralia

    View attachment 5474369


    Also I would like to know the recommended apps to be installed on the HU.
    Don't know if you have already found a solution. Turn off the synchronisation of contacts on CC3

    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
