Absolute worse case scenario if you completely mess up the unit, you can always just hold the reset pin on the side and go back to factory state.

I upgraded to the file you pointed to. Unfortunately, it looks like my box is not "authorized." Now it doesn't work at all. Where did you purchase your box? Maybe I should just get a new one that's updated.

I have an extra one, brand new. I installed the V1 in my neighbors car but his Android phone was not compatible with AudroidAuto so we never ended up installing the Carplay Module. I can 100% confirm it works with iphone and carplay.

If you're interested in it PM me and I can send you a payment request and ship it out.

There are different versions. Try this one, I guess this will work for you if the previous one didn't.

Update problem

Hi everyone. I bought this navigation with android from https://www.aliexpress.com/item/8-Co...rcedes-Benz-C- Class-W204 / 32926783952.html, I installed it and connected it, it worked perfectly until everything ok until I found this video:
and I tried to update according to the steps there, according to https://mbworld.org/forums/c-class-w...ml#post7684581, I think mine is the same version of navigation than that on the w205, and after the first step, after the reboot stayed in black screen and did not boot, I tried to go into recovery mode or something and I did not succeed. I tried to contact the seller and did not reply to messages on aliexpress, facebook, mail, etc. =leftI do not know what to do, I'm desperate ... can someone help me please?

Update on the CarPlay issue. The adapter box I got from DMP Audio was not compatible. I got the version from Ungarish and it seems to be working perfectly.

Anyone have any success tethering the iPhone hotspot via USB to the android unit VS creating a wifi hotspot? With the iPhone wifi hotspot, it does not show up as an available network until I enter the hotspot screen under settings on iPhone. It would be nice if it were more seamless and auto-connect without having to manipulate the iPhone.

EDIT:
Any tips on how to update the CarPlay adapter box? It says the box adapter is too low and needs update via U disk.

Its the location of the GPS antenna thats causing the issues. Some may have more interference like a metal plate that could be blocking the signal. Relocate the GPS antenna and that should solve the issue.

Its aesthetically pleasing, and gives the car a more modern feel. Other than that there really isn't much use for it on a daily basis.

I remember watching a video where the guy was explaining if you mix up two of the plugs, you will only get sound coming out of some of the speakers. I canít remember which plugs they are, but they are the only two that look alike. I guess it seems to be a common problem because he made a separate video explaining this.

I don't use the USB, I just create the hotspot via WiFi with the IPhone. It shows up an a network and the Android unit connects to it. Once it connects get full network connectivity (i.e google maps update for traffic etc). For downloading new apps I connect up to the house Wifi.. Sadly with the IPhone, it will only go into tether mode if you open up the hotspot setting in settings menu on the phone. Once the Android connects to it, you are set.. Seems to be a battery life enhancement they did.

Hi guys I have a big problem. I purchased one of the 10.25" screens from CKM and it only shows "Unfortunately System UI Has Stopped". It won't clear so I can't get beyond that to do anything else. Is there a way of getting this rectified?

I have a few questions still...

Is there a way to make the MUSIC app on the home screen to like Pandora?

I tried to move few apps to an external SD card (programmed) as internal but keeps showing "not enough space" and rejects the transfer.

You need to go into the secret menu and change the display type for your display. On the V2 it is something like "Original Car Screen Resolution". I'm not sure on the version you have.

Something around post 21 in this thread may help you out..

Hey all,

So I've dug through 12 pages here, and watched as many youtubes as I can find however I cant seem to find an answer to my problem. I picked up the unit from DMP and everything is plugged in and working find, however I have no sound. Zero, zilch, nada, none. I can connect to the bluetooth on either the car or the screen, and both shows music playing, however no sound. I double checked the connection to the radio, and reseated it fully. Still no sound. Went back through and quadrupled unteenmillion checked the A/B A thing as well.

In going back through all my connections I noticed that I have a couple extra wires coming out of my main harness that isn't included in the patch harness in the kit. I'm thinking this is my issue but I have no idea how to remove them from the main harness. FWIW I have the harmon kardon system, 2013 W204.

The two I'm talking about are the orange wires, top left in the first picture, and top right in the second picture.

Yes, those are the fiber optic links and without those you will have no audio. You have to transfer those to the new harness and plug them into the back of the radio to get sound. If you look close they have some little clips on the back side (away from the radio) that you release and can pull them out of the quad lock connector, should not take a lot of force.. Both fibers come out as one piece. You just snap them into the quad-lock on new harness and you should be good to go.

Check out this video around the 8:10 mark. It tells you how to get to the secret menu to chose the display option (1 through 13). Start at 1 and try each one until the main screen looks normal.

Also in this meny you can go to the full android system settings, though a lot of the sub-menu's are taken out.





I will definitely try to root and load to SD card tomorrow, I need to download the offline map to whole SoCal so I dont have to keep tethering my phone. Oh, and google maps does not lag for me either. I have my antenna on the dash behind the center channel grill mesh.
i filled 111111 in Factory Pattern but doesnít work.
