Frequently asked questions

This is an addon kit for a factory series2 radio.

The kit adds the carplay/android auto capability to the factory radio by using the unused RSE video/audio inputs on the radio.

Your steering wheel controls for skipping songs while using the carplay/android auto system does not work. We are working on an addon solution for this but do not have any ETA on its arrival. Your steering controls for skipping still work for all other parts of the radio including bluetooth and AM/FM radio, only the new carplay/android auto does not work with them.

Your steering wheel controls for volume still work correctly on carplay/android auto screen.

There are two kits that can be selected:
1) The plug and play kit which includes us performing the touchscreen switcher module installation onto your face plate or one supplied by us. After this has been done, the rest of the kit is completely plug and play.

2) The DIY kit which requires you to install the touchscreen switcher module install onto your own faceplate. This is extremely advanced install, requiring disassembling your radio faceplate, soldering to the circuit board and running delicate ribbon cables. DIY kits are not recommended for self installation and should be completed by a competent auto electrician.

The kit connects to the radios factory RSE video input, which is a composite (old school dvd player) video connection. This means the displayed video will not be like a modern day mobile device with high resolution.

You can get some grainy affect on the main home screen before selecting carplay/android auto, but image does look good once carplay/android auto has been loaded.

If you expect perfection, this kit is not for you.

The kit connects to the factory RSE audio inputs which are equivalent to an AUX cord audio sound.

Holden VE’s are renown for having a bit of audio whine (especially in amplified cars) so you WILL get some audio whine/noise with the audio up. When playing music, you do not notice it much.

For fussy individuals, this kit is not for you.

Yes your aircon still works and so does all other factory radio capabilities.

You cannot see what your aircon is set to when in the carplay/android auto screen. You can easily see your aircon though by tapping the TUNE button, pressing the screen to minimise carplay and then view/change your aircon as desired. Finally press the screen again to maximise carplay/android auto and press TUNE button again to engage the touch capability.

If you have a factory reverse camera, the carplay screen will ‘minimise’ when you put the vehicle into reverse and then back into drive. To bring it back to fullscreen, the user will need to press the TUNE button, tap the screen to maximise the caprlay/android auto screen and then TUNE button again to engage to carplay touch control.

The factory RSE programming in the radios (Which is the video input that our kits use) is what causes the carplay screen to minimise when putting the vehicle into reverse. For customers with factory reverse camera, we recommend plugging your phone in, reversing out of your parking spot and then maximising the carplay/android auto screen and finally tapping the tune button, this process takes only a couple seconds to do.

Next, just like ANY electronic device, occasionally you may need to ignition on/off to cycle the carplay/android auto box to get it to display. After using the kit for over a year, we have only need to do this a handful of times, its simply due to the car forgetting to power up the carplay/android box from the DOC power supply.
