Done with installation .. everything is working fine so far
I will post a video for the actual unit with android and how to use it.
- Removing the head unit (done in 10 mins) video guide :
- Head unit dissection: (you must have a heart of a surgeon to do this
) I planned to do a video showing all the process then I found one that already there .. The whole installation takes 1 hour and it's easy if you have the right tools. You add a custom board which hack your unit and gain control of the touch screen in favor for the android box. I ran into small technical issues dealing with the ribbon cables but once I figured out how to unlock the connectors everything went perfectly.
After that all the remaining process is easy as installing a lockpick plug and play.
Operation: To access android all you have to do is hold on the screen for 4 seconds and to go back to uconnect u do the same. The system is so smooth and responsive. You will have a full android under your control you can do whatever you like (Snapchat account for the car using the front camera
). The only downside of this system is the screen
. U will not have multitouch control and u have to press slightly harder in order to control it (Resistive touch screen
). As for the resolution, It's fairly good watched a couple of youtube videos and it was good.
here is a video reviewing the mod from the same guy who did the first video:
also here is detailed review for the mod:
