    Also I didn't see that you had that car launcher, thought you meant the same unit as me. Annnyway.

    Not sold on that car launcher - been playing with it on my phone but it seems so . . . limited or something, I dunno. I like the default one that came with my unit for some reason. BUT being Android, it's nooo issue to have two! Or three.. or four! Hooray

    I like my xtrons unit and so far no real problems at all. There is a minor crackle sound on certain apps like google maps when the voice is talking but I read that it is a common chip set bug with android and text to speech.

    The only bummer I have had with dealing with this xtrons product is the support forums. It is a total joke over there. If you ask a question in their forums you have to wait for a mod to approve it before it appears and then if you ask a question they do not want to answer or if they feel that they do not like you because you bring their bugs to light they will simply never approve your post and you will be throttled to invisible. I even emailed admin asking whats up and they just do not respond. It's a basic F U over there and they should look out because I may not have a voice on there but I can tell people here!

    I was hoping that since xtrons is a UK business that some EU style service might come with it lol. The admins on the xtrons site def. are not English first speakers.

    Yeah it sounds like all they are doing is screening post that bring any negative aspects or bugs into light. This is a shame because with the unit being Android based it is possible that others may be able to come up with a tweak or solution to make the units less crippled for the people who have already put up the bucks and have to live with it.

    pics?? You know I'm gonna keep harassing you til you post some kind of pic of your setup xboss! lol!

    the forum sounds kind of hokie. you might be better off just finding a forum on just using the android OS or try: http://www.caraudio.com/forums
    or http://www.caraudioforum.com there's also one called car audio mpeg3 or something like that..

    good luck

    So I've gotten back to the install on MINE (long story)

    I'm trying to get the steering controls to work.

    I've removed the factory dsp crap from the trunk, so now I'm trying to figure out how to get the ibus into the unit!

    No idea where to connect the ibus WIRE to my connector!? How do I hook it in to the little red box that came - what pin!? Then how does it get from there, in to the head unit?

    Currently I have the headunit connector with:

    ground
    key 1
    brake/safety
    cam-in
    camline
    key2
    ill
    acc-in
    ground
    B+

    (I think B+ is Chinese for main power)

    That little red box is spliced in to some random wires it seems - including power and ground. No idea what lead to hook the ibus up to to make the controls work.

    I hooked the ibus up to a scope today and could see the different buttons making different signals (skip forward, vol +, vol -, skip backward, phone, hangup, and funny enough air recirculation also is on there) so I know the ibus wire and the controls are working as expected.

    I just need to know how to hook that ibus wire up TO the damn unit! No instructions ANYWHERE. Anyone with a harness - franco/xboss can you tell me where that ibus wire goes to PLEASE? Spent literally 5 hours in the car today in 9000c weather trying to make it work.
