Got my unit up and running over the weekend. Everything wired, but not buttoned up. The backup cam (i used the noauka from amazon) works great, but I haven't mounted it yet. Intial audio setup through my speaker wires and LOC worked well, but I did change over to straight RCAs for a cleaner install and that also went well. Had some trouble with an older offbrand carplay kit so I ordered the gen4 carlinkit from amazon. The gen5 had a mid july delivery from ali, and amazon was free nextday. Had some issues with that as well, but uninstalled the software and reinstalled and it works well. Did a test call from the garage with the mic just sitting near the drivers side A pillar and wife said it sounded fine, but could tell i was on bluetooth. With some of the other comments about mic issues, i'm eager to see how it'll sound when driving 60mph.
Everything to this point has just been testing in the garage, but my audio does sound better, I dont hear any hiss or whine that was common with my previous setup, but seeing how she does on the road will be the true test.
Still playing around with settings as well. I feel like their setup is a little overly complicated and I wish there were some directions or cheat sheets out there.
