It appears as though once the front camera gets triggered, the black bar appears at the bottom of the screen when I return to the cargo cam. I hope Magnus and the team can fix this issue in the next round of updates so I can re-install the front camera tokens.
This is great news and is also indicative that it isn't burried deep in the VES like we thought. Have you relayed this work around to Magnus via email? It might help them get on the right track.

I haven't had a chance to look into this stuff in a while now, but things are slowing down so I can start digging deeper too.

Yes, I have notified Magnus via email on the same day I posted on the forum. Hope next release of tokens can fix the issue.

another feature request- if possible- allow more phone book favorites. 5 aint cutting it for me.

and for Dodge Durango owners- seems a common complaint is the automatic tilting rear view mirrors 'tilt too much'- being able to adjust the amount of the tilt when you shift into reverse would be neat. The option to enable it is in the unconnect menu's so hopefully it's tweakable...

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

alrighty so i got chromecast working in the car using my phone as a hotspot.

my phone is a nexus 5 so it has native cast screen app. im sure you prob need the native cast display app on your phone so it might not work for other phones yet. but here are the steps i did to make it work

-set up portable hotspot on my nexus (ssid and pw)
-borrow friends phone and connect to my nexus wifi/hotspot. download chromecast app and go through the setup
-setup chromecast to my nexus's wifi ssid using my friends phone
-once set up is complete i shut off my friends phone and from my phone i went to settings->display->cast screen .. and it works!



once again i think this will only work with android phones who have the cast native software.

i know with the new android L software coming out within the next 2 months all phones should have cast app built in

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Are there any lockpicks that allow for a HD input to the 8.4" screen?

When you say HD you are referring to HDMI or component correct. If so the answer is no. You'll need to use a HDMI to composite converter.
