Android on 8.4N/NA

Uconnect 8.4A/NA Android smart system - CHRYSLER-DODGE-JEEP - Products

Not sure how they are doing this. They'd appear to be controlling some sort of android build with the touch screen.

Re: Android on 8.4N/NA

I hope this Uconnect hacking will blow wide open

I ALWAYS feel really confident upon seeing descriptions/advertisements for software products where it is obvious that language skills are not even 1st grade level. Eeek...

Spoken/written languages are easy compared to computer languages...

Someone posted this a while back. This particular product is very expensive though. But I, like you, am hoping that Uconnect amateur development really takes off.

Re: Android on 8.4N/NA

So is it Android running on the UCONNECT 8.4 hardware?

Or is it Android (on a phone, tablet) running on its own device and displayed on the screen via the auxiliary video inputs of the Swedish harness or the Lockpick harness? Cause if this is the case, there's no reason to cost that much...

I'm not sure exactly, but in another thread I thought someone said you have to send them your head unit to be modded by the them.

Ah, I must have missed that one. I am definitely following the customtronix thread.

Unfortunately, it appears they have pulled RAX from the US market at this time. I've been in email contact with them and they would like to get the bugs worked out before shipping anything else to the US. I'll update this as soon as I get the word that this has changed.
