With the Android Auto/Car play version. The mute button is replaced with an APP button. How do you mute the unit?

Test installed tonight without camera. Plug and play and everything works great except Android Auto which constantly crashes the unit and locks up my phone. Not sure if it's a problem with the firmware or my phone. I have a LG G6. Will try a Samsung tomorrow.

As it stands definitely not worth shelling out for Android Auto.

Anyone else had a similar experience?

Ive found the only way is to hold the volume down button on the steering wheel. \_(ツ)_/

Solved. Need to activate USB debugging on my phone for Android auto to work with this handset.

Now if only SoundCloud was supported...

Will try hooking up the camera today. Park pilot works flawlessly.

8-button wheel means buttons don't work. Ah well. Not the end of the world. Would be great if the right knob could be reprogrammed push to mute....

Anyone have a list of android auto apps supported on the rcd3330+?

For instance is there support for FB messenger or WhatsApp? What music players are supported?


I have pulsar for music but it tends to lock up for folders with anything but a handful of entries.

And don't know how to access message apps or if it's even possible.

One more question.

Has anyone got the oem camera working using a 26 pin RGB to CVBS converter unit? If so, how did you connect it - particularly the reverse/backup wire?

I have +ve and ground tapped into the feeds into the quad block connector and am receiving voltage. I tried tapping the back wire into +ve as well temporarily just to give it power as I'm guessing it is a relay feed, but I still get the reverse camera not available message when reversing.

Thanks

Thanks Jase. I managed to get that far on my own.  :D I think it's a limitation of the unit as same problem with all the apps I've tried including Google Play Music with a playlist of all my songs.

A bit of a pain.

AA is slightly unstable too with the occasional crash. This could be my phone (LG G6) as it was really crashey and basically unusable until I enabled USB debugging. So possible compatibility isn't great. Will try other devices when I can and post feedback.

So Sinosmart (eBay and AliExpress) who supplied the RGB converter think it might be an issue with the dynamic trajectory camera. Possible as it may need a CAN connection to turn on and get steering wheel position info??? They offered to send me a different unit that *might* work or refund me. I took refund and will try find a solution or buy an aftermarket camera without dynamic trajectory rather than take the punt.

Anyone without DT want a cheap, unused RGB to CVBS converter?  8)

Awesome!

Then sideload AnyAuto Audio from XDA developers and you can play music over AA using any music app. Just successfully trialled SoundCloud. Even displays album art.

It's also an effective work around for the problem I was having with accessing music on my device.

Now we're getting somewhere!

Got the new unit today (see above for link) and installed. Hardware version 534, software 5314.

Works great, just the same as the previous one but with Android Auto instead of Baidu Carlife and red details on the various pages instead of yellow.





So a quick follow up, unit is working well except I get no Siri voice, regardless of what settings I try under the 'Siri & Search' options, or in accessibility. I have a friend with the RCD330+ who initially had problems and also a family member with a JVC CarPlay head unit who can't get her Siri voice to work either.

Any else been seeing this?

Besides this I have the a CarPlay only version of the RCD330+ which this one replaced, so if anyone wants to take that off my hands i'll give it to you for what I paid. Please DM me if you're interested.
