I tried using the spotify app on the unit itself, it's ok, but again the control using the control knob is not really well integrated. I have to do everything via touch screen mostly unless im playing music from a usb or its hard drive. It's just my personal preference. I can see why others would like it. No delay issues for me as i've activated the aux input in my car..
how do you adjust volume then? so the only thing you can do is the oem settings w/ the knob and wheel? everything else is touchscreen? changing songs on the carplay is touch screen too?

Ok my statement may have been a little confusing. When the carplay dongle is inserted via usb and your iphone is hooked up, the control knob and steering wheel controls do not work. For volume, the normal volume buttons still work because the sound is being routed through the OEM HU. You will probably have to adjust the android screen's default volume for the USB input so that it plays at a respectable volume. If the android unit's default volume for the USB is too low and you adjust the volume on your OEM HU up too high using the OEM controls, you get some distortion and degraded sound quality (note: this is from my experience only and others may have different experiences). There is no volume slider within the carplay app. But in terms of maneuvering around the main carplay screen and even within the apps within carplay (and changing songs), it's all touchscreen. From my research there seems to be a black colored usb dongle out there that has some steering wheel integration, but it's not that refined.

When I start the Google app, the "ok Google" works from the Google search interface... But it will be terrific if it can works from any screen.

Same on your side?
I have 2017 W205. I will not replace OEM screen with this after market screen until it supports "OK Google". I want to have similar experience with MBUX in my old car.

Just ordered this. 9.33 in version, because the aspect ratio is better than the 10.25 in my opinion.

Regarding the install, what tools are needed? From what I've seen, a T15-torx screwdriver, pry tool, and a Phllips screwdriver. Is that all? And optionally, a piece of tape to stick the GPS antenna to the center dash speaker grill?

Also, regarding the Burmister system, am I correct in saying I specifically have to unplug the fiber optic connectors and plug them into the new connector? Everything else is "standard" in that I don't have to do anything special?

Have you contacted the seller?
It comes with a one year warranty, doesn't it?

Do those of you with the 10.25" screen have issues with android auto automatically switching to night mode with the carplay dongle?

Here is an app on the play store that resolves that issue. It is a background app that can't be opened. It's based off the sunrise and sunset times in your time zone. Sometimes if you restart your phone and the app isn't working, you just click on it and you'll see a new notification for your sunset and sunrise times.

Buzzing noise on 9.33" screen fix



I used a vibrator to find the buzzing noise that this 9.33" android screen was making. For those who bought this screen, I added felt tape next to the plastic blue port and in between the metal and plastic. This stopped the noise. I pulled this screen out and put the old one back in out of frustration. After a couple days I absolutely couldn't stand the garmin sd card navigation, lack of android auto and the overall god awful infotainment system, and figured I'd give this one more try if I could fix it. My 15 Hyundai Sonata had Android Auto and a bigger screen. I can't believe that it's taken until now for Mercedes to make led lights and android auto standard on expensive luxury cars. Why would any luxury car not have things like that standard? Even a base c300 should come standard with the larger comand screen, because you can spend a lot less and still have a larger screen than this midget tablet mounted to the dash. Mercedes makes a beautiful car and I love the design, but they severely fail at infotainment systems.

I bought this version instead of the 10.25" screen because it has 3gb instead of 2 and android auto displays properly on it. From what I've seen, android auto looks stretched out on the lower resolution 10.25 wide screen.

Unfortunately it only has celcius/kph unlike the android 8.1 version from dmpcardesign. I'm checking with the seller (Shenzhen Merryway Technology Co., Ltd) to see if they have a newer version yet.
I have the 9.33 in screen, and mine has Farenheit and MPH. Here;s a link to what I bought: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/9-33...3fd97107IJ24Rg

I applied an update last night and the seller just showed me where the new mph/Fahrenheit settings are. Thanks for the reply!

Cool, glad to hear it. Let's keep in touch. I feel like us 9.33 inchers are a rarer breed here and the software is a bit different so maybe we can help each other out with settings and such. FWIW, I've seen both screens in action, and the 9.33 wins easily from the aspect ratio alone. I would never buy the 10.25in version after seeing how it looked in comparison.

Find two options: with the dongle, the screen is completely stretched. With the HUR application (no need for dongle) you can choose whether you want it stretched or just the natural size of Android Auto.

And the third picture is Android Auto with the Google assistant. You can see the format fits perfectly fine in a 10" screen, but this is not yet available.

Wow, thanks for the awesome reply! If the widescreen version of android auto was out or at least has a release date, I would have bought the 10.25" screen instead. It has much better support from great sellers like carlife mall.

Here is a picture of android auto through the carplay dongle displaying perfectly on the 9.33" screen.



Also, with the newest carplay app and dongle updates, you can program the command knob or other buttons in your car to skip songs, play songs, summon google or siri voice, etc. It's fantastic. I can now skip songs without touching the screen while I'm using google maps. I don't have to worry about the screen hearing me say, "ok google" when the music is up and I'm on the highway.

Is the dongle better than using head unit reloaded if you just want to use android auto?
