Does anyone with a Ford 2010ish car know if an idatalink maestro adapter is required to install a cc3 and retain factory steering? My cc3 is coming soon but I am unsure if I need the maestro adapter to retain my steering wheel functions and oem microphone. I'm new to car stereo information and I have been digging over this info for about 2 weeks and I am still unsure if I need anything else before my order arrives.

Has anyone found a way to disable backup camera without cutting the reverse wire in canbus?
Everytime I enter reverse the backup cam pops up and I don't have one. I don't see the apk to uninstall sadly.

Anyone have an tips to improve the microphone quality, feedback from others while using bluetooth calling is that they can barely hear me. It's the one outstanding issue I have with the teyes. I've read that disabling the internal mic can hep, but others have reported no improvement from doing that.

Disconnect external mic and use a quality lapel electret type mic.

Can you link it please? And how to disconnected the internal one?
To disconnect the internal one you will need to remove the unit from your car. Behind the touch buttons there's a slot you can open. Remove the touch buttons by removing the ribbon. At the top there's the microphone. Remove it without damaging the board. That will display the internal microphone.

The seller is no longer selling the microphone I have however it's just a drop shipper.

It's named this

Have just completed the installation of my CC3 head unit into my 2015 Kia Sportage. All seems okay so far apart from when I try to update the radio stations list. Instead of getting a UK list, the radio seems to think I'm in Bagan Datuk. Is there some setting somewhere I've missed ?

    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.

    Unfortunately, from my understanding, that does not work on the cc3. I wish there was a way to adjust it in software.
    So I checked out Gordgelin's site, and wound up removing the internal mic. After that it works perfectly with the external. So thank you to everyone that helped.

    No. You would be surprised but there are differences in quality even though they look identical.

    A new firmware version has been released for Teyes CC3 by Teyes but be warned that you cannot roll back to a previous firmware if there are problems.
    Teyes have further lockdown the firmware to make it harder to install non Teyes apps and mods. A reason to consider other FYT units over Teyes units.

    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.
