yeah found it in the section where you go in and hold and enter the password. I like this setting a little better I think as I can directly control the sub.

Everything is now working just about perfect except carplay. I have the gen4 and latest software and the audio cuts out and is glitchy. Manual says to change charging settings which I think kind of defeats the purpose of plugging it in. Anyone else have this issue with the carlinkit?

Iím using the front and rear line out for the four channel amp and the subwoofer out for the sub amp. So far, I am very pleased with the sound of it over stock. Previously, i used an audio control LC7I but was never very happy with the sound. It was as if the volume for the four channel amp and the sub amp were never in sync with each other. I canít comment on engine wine because the car is still in storage. I did have to pull the car out into the driveway and then back in the garage again after the install and didnít notice any engine wine though��!

Edit. My previous audio set up had horrible engine wine and it drove me absolutely crazy!
I'm rereading this whole thread as I now have the unit and can confirm for the first time in almost 10 years I finally no longer have engine whine. I have tried carputers, iphone screen mirroring and you name it and have never rid myself of the whine until now!

Anyone purchase the version 2? I should have it in a few days.

If anyone interested, version 1 will be for sale soon.

You have to check if the VE Series 2 harness pinouts are the same as VE Series 1. If it is different, you will need to rewire it.

It's not, most people use an adapter harness so you don't risk screwing up your factory plug.

yes get a metra adapter. they're cheap and you're not ever messing with wiring issues or going back to stock.
