another question- sorry for the barrage... For the reverse camera, is there a trigger wire to hook up for the reverse signal, or is it all tied into the harness?
Just ordered mine with a bunch of other goodies today
Perfect. Im going to be installing a setup similar to Honda's lane watch, but needed a +12v power trigger to the head unit to make it work.There is a trigger wire in the harness which I believe is 12 volts to power up the camera.
Just spoke with them- Very helpful! I had more questions, so I figured I would post up what they said to help others.
They claim with no parking sensors, that section of the screen will not show up when you go into reverse- Can anyone confirm?
The gridlines can be turned off. They are helpful on here since they move with the steering angle, but for me I wanted to make sure of this since I am using the module to tie in front and blind spot cameras. Didnt want those same lines there. My reverse camera already actually has gridlines which I can turn off as well, but I will leave them since I am going to turn it off on the unit
New units are being shipped with the carplay not connected message gone... Also, they said its a setting in the app that you can have it open automatically when phone is connected- you dont have to manually go to the app and open it
Screen mirroring can be done wirelessly- The unit sets up a hotspot to connect to allow functionality like this
To change the look and feel of the home screen, you can download an android launcher (they recommend AGAMA
A similar radio from another company offers themes for the UI interface. They seem to be using the same firmware like our units for G8.
I am still waiting on my headunit to arrive so cant test.
Can anyone confirm if these units have themes option available?
1. Go to Settings > System Version > press and hold the system version screen until numbers pop-up > type 7890 > System.
Scroll down to the bottom of the screen until you see UI Num: and UI Style:.
2. Change both of these selections to match each other – similar to the picture below, so both themes have the same theme name in them. Restart your radio for changes to take affect.
