Are you sure the scrolling worked before? It's very common that the plastic pin inside the COMAND knob unit breaks, so you can't scroll by turning anymore. Mine doesn't work, haven't since i bought the car. I have to flip the knob to the sides or up/down to scroll through things.

Note that the knob wont work in most apps, like Spotify or Waze or, alteast mine doesnt. But I can use the "Back button" and "C" button next to the knob to get out of apps etc.

I found out from Chris that itís a blue tooth antenna. Suppose to improve the quality of the signal. I noticed without it, the blue tooth streaming music will get random clips, although very minor. Iíll have to install the antenna and see if it makes a difference.

Interesting.. What's the result? I did not buy mine from Chris so mine did not come with this antenna.

Is there any chance you can post an actual picture? Or maybe someone here can post an actual picture from their facelift car fitted with the screen so that we can see the fit.

Found this on youtube. Looks pretty centered to me.

Here's another I found online

Decided to ask my seller and here is his response :

​​​"This antenna is not for Bluetooth, but for 4G network signal here. But it is no use outside China mainland since the sim card slot of the monitor can not work with sim card outside China."

On the avin units there's a sim slot below the SD card slot. I'll have to check on our unit if there's one there too.

I'm fairly certain that mine has another slot below the SD one, I bought it from Chris

I've uploaded a youtube video of google maps. Mine is pretty accurate and is not laggy. I mean the transition is not super smooth as I would expect from an adroid 5.1.1. unit. But otherwise accurate. When I get a chance today, I will take the screen off and show you where I put the GPS and how it's mounted. Maybe this will help with your google maps issue. Waiting for the rain to stop.

So weird that it works well for some, and for others basically not at all.

Is it a huge delay of your location? Is there a video of the issue? My video is up. Check my previous post.

On a side note...are you trying to see how many miles you can exceed your service interval? Haha. You can easily reset the service reminders on your own without the dealer.

Oh I know I can reset it haha. I haven't reset it in a while. Keep forgetting to do it when I change oil. I've just been changing oil every 10k and haven't relied on the reminder. I also have a reminder that I have a faulty fog light I ignore.

I installed the extra antenna today and did rear camera install as well, everything is done now.
No improvement on Bluetooth audio streaming...I mean, after all it wasn't the Bluetooth antenna lol

Google maps works for me, I mean, it's accurate. It's just very slow, seems to be that the unit cannot run it due to lack of performance, or that google map's app is just a performance hog.

Everything works except the annoying freeze/stutter I get from Bluetooth audio streaming.
Can someone on here confirm that they can play music through bluetooth from their phone without any issues? I keep getting stuttering, even when I am not running any other apps. It comes and goes and interrupts the music, very annoying.
Try this, play music from your phone via Bluetooth streaming, then run navigation (for me, its Waze) and while Waze is loading, the music stutters/lags, due to a performance hit while launching the GPS app I assume? The thing is, it also happens when I am not doing anything else...performance shouldn't take a hit.
