Still not sorted frustratingly .... any ideas anyone?
Possibly a Bluetooth setting. Pre Carplay typical use would have been, err, typically for incoming calls rather than music.
Kenwood, for example, sets Bluetooth output to fronts only by default. There should be a setting to output "from all" or something similar.

I’ve been messing with it today and seem to have sorted ... no idea what I did though.

There is definitely interference noise though frustratingly ...

Still a great upgrade though.

I read the interference is usually due to the wifi antenne being too close to the unit. Moving that out of the way seems to fix most issues.

I'm probably about to order one of these, to include DAB, OBD2 reader, display and rear cameras:-
View attachment 75532

Price for the RHD 9 inch head unit is 1300usd. Dab 30USD , OBD 22USD .
Express shipping cost is free. However tax free shipping we will add 65usd . "If you can gather 3-5 orders we can provide free tax free shipping to you as well"

It's been very successful in the USA
There's a climate control is 800usd as well which I'm not bothering with as that's just a cosmetic enhancement

Does anyone wish to join me, or shall I be the lone pioneer?

Seems all a bit covert this.
Is it Top Secret CAT III UMBRA UK eyes only?

I am going to try and revive this thread as I am looking at the Gen2 Aucar 9inch unit as well as their touch screen AC control unit

https://aucarauto.com/product/aucar-digital-aircon-ac-c-panel-for-maserati-gt-gc-granturismo-2007-2017-climate-control/

Has anyone on the forum installed these units in the UK yet to a GT or GC? I want to install to a 2013 GranCab Sport.

I would especially be interested if anyone has a reliable installer that would fit it for me? Could do the dash strip down myself but really do not have the time!!!

Any help for a newbie would be welcome.

Based in Sutton Coldfield but happy to travel.

Hey CyrusJH - I am currently waiting for my car audio guy to fit my AuCar Gen 2 and Digital Climate to my GT soon. Hopefully within the next week and am based in Birmingham too so happy to demo the system with you once done. :thumb:

Does anyone else have any experience with the AUCar gen 2.1 system install? I had read that some of the Gen 1 systems were unreliable - can anyone elaborate? Did gen 2 sort this out?

I have a gen2 and am very happy (and fitted myself so they must be relatively idiot proof!)

Couple of minor issues (not all directly related to the aucar unit) I have had were:
  1. Connecting a Huawei 4g dongle to the usb would just not work - kept opening a native app but wouldn't do anything - in the end I wired a female usb to the switched 12v supply and use a 4g WiFi dongle which with Waze works a treat
  2. The skip buttons on the steering wheel skips 2 tracks forward / back rather than 1 - I assume it's addressable in the settings but haven't bothered.
  3. I opted to turn on the setting that engages the parking sensors when speed is low. The sensors however appear to activate if a gnat farts. That said I can live with the false positives if it saves me at the right time (my garages are accessed by a narrow track)
  4. Can't change the in dash clock to 24hr
As a note I didn't bother routing the GPS antenna just left it affixed behind the dash and it works great

I am also impressed with the canbus integration even if some of the android options are 'vague' e.g. suspension open / close (doesn't toggle sport mode)

Any specific questions happy to answer.

Apologies for the stupid question here as have toyed with the idea of the Gen 2.1 for Apple CarPlay but are all the “services” related to the car but NOT related to purely the radio or the SatNav retained/persisted?

Things like setting date/time/clock and some other functions related to the central display in the binnacle?? Or related to the steering wheel functions?

In essence, is there as trade-off or just pure benefits/upside of CarPlay and DAB etc?

Cheers!

Certainly on the AuCar the other functions are retained, but sometimes can be rather tricky to find apparently.
