thank you for confirming this. i've had such trouble with engine whine that I plan to try and buy some higher end wires, even if it's a waste, I'll feel better when troubleshooting.

Belo I notice from the video that there is only a single subwoofer rca output. Most (mine anyhow) sub inputs take a left and right input. currently i just use a pre-amp output from my 4 channel amp to send a signal to my subs. However, with this fancier kayhan, I'm thinking there is a sub control option. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I'm thinking I would have to run a splitter rca if this is the case and also wondering if anyone has done that.

thanks all.

Belo i have a tight space in my garage where i winter my car. Otherwise it's in the driveway for the summer as it's just easier with the 3 vehicles. But man I'm just so used to and reliant on backup cameras now that it may be the final push I need to get this thing on order.

I agree with both of these I think haha. What I didn't expect was the $100 price increase. Yeah that's not a huge chunk of money, but it adds up. It's a risk you run for sure, but I would have adopted it earlier knowing that most of the bugs are software and can be fixed remotely. I was more concerned with how the company would respond and it seems at first they were great, but now they're on to other things. this worries me.

No, nothing at all. Won't update the apps that are installed and I've tried to install Torque Pro, same effect.

1) Using bluetooth streaming, took a call on bluetooth and music continued playing at extremely low volume in the background of the call. Upon hanging up from the call, the music remained at an extremely low level.

2) Using bluetooth streaming, about the 3rd or 4th song of the morning finished then when it advanced to the next one, silence. The streaming was still going, just no sound from the car. Didn't matter how many songs I skipped, if I paused then resumed, or even switching inputs then back. My phone has never had an issue with this, I also use it in my truck for the same thing.

3) Car sat in the parking lot for about an hour and when I came back out it resumed from standby but was stuck on the home page (the one with the calendar on top and red gauges at the bottom). Bluetooth reconnected and began playing but the unit was completely unresponsive to any controls (touch screen or steering wheel). Next time I restarted the car (same day) the unit forced itself into a full boot (I'm guessing the glitch crashed the entire system when it attempted to go into standby again).

Mostly curious if anyone else has had similar incidents.
Can't comment on the bluetooth problems but mine every once in a great while will do a full boot vs picking up on the home page. Usually only takes an extra 10 seconds ish.

First message was April 4th with further messages from myself attempting to get follow up on the 12th, 21st (no response to this one), and 29th.

I'm about to give up hope and start attempting to root the device...
