Hi Robin,

I know you use your hotspot to run everything, but can you tell me about the quality of the navigation map (And directions) using onboard GPS only?

There will be times that a cellular connection will not be possible while traveling.

Thanks

Robin,
Did you figure out the gps puck placement and backup camera wire routing?
Yes I did get the GPS mounted by the mirror but was 2" short to mounting it in the blacked out area, but it is small enough it's still out of the way. I ordered a wire worm from amazon 16 bucks to pull the wire where needed, I hope to work on it this weekend and do the video, for sure the first part of next week, I have talked to a couple people who have done it and taking the best route possible so everybody can do it.

While online you can download maps to work offline. Its works great and looks just like when online, I use it all the time on my Android tablet while traveling in the SUV. My opinion google maps is the best there is.

Open the Google Maps/Navigation . Make sure you're connected to the Internet and signed in to Google Maps. Search for a place, like San Francisco . At the bottom, tap the name or address of the place tap More . Select Download offline map Download, it will download your route and work totally offline.

Hey I stand corrected, The GPS (Google Maps) runs on full Offline mode, it is not necessary to run WiFi. You have the Option to run on WiFi mode to receive realtime updates, accidents, speedtraps, road closures etc. Still learning...lol

Robin were able to map the steering wheel buttons on the back to any functions on the Android? Like vol or fwd?

I’m trying to remap those buttons for other uses... its looks like they don’t respond with the android unit.

I received the links and I just placed my order! I had to use PayPal (no big deal) as Chase kept alerting the purchase as a fraudulent purchase and I didn't feel like calling them. I'm now like a kid waiting for Christmas!

Looking forward to the videos!

Quick question for you in the meantime...is there an open port for an additional video input?

My goal is to have a front and rear camera setups since the MCs only come with sensors in the rear.
The AuCar unit only mentions a single camera input through the harness...no traditional RCA inputs. So is it not possible to have more than one camera? View attachment 128280

Hello, Here are the links to purchase the Group Buy AuCar 9" Head unit. There are 4 links as you see, the price of the Head unit includes the HD backup camera weather you install it or not, My suggestion is wire it as I did in the video and tuck it away and if you decide you want to hook it up it is there. This is through Aliexpress. IF and only If you cannot get it to go through I will need your PayPal email address and you can send me your specs and they will send an invoice through PayPal to complete the order.

Please look very closely at the options when ordering, each color is there, choose color/style and whether you have LHD (left hand drive) or RHD (right hand drive) and add it to cart, next you can choose if you want a USB dash cam, they just threw that in there if you would like one. You will also see a WiFi OBD2 option. once again add it to the cart if you would like one.
European Customers, You can choose the Tax free link and will ship via DHL right to your door, and pass through customs, Just add it to your cart.

These links will be good though November 15th

My email is [email protected]

Thank you so much!

Robin Elliott
