And i can't find it on other webs, e.g. aliexpress.

really i've read post of people being able to flash no issues? i know you can't with the wifi adapter but i was talking about hardwiring in to the obd plug with the avins plug.

well that defeats the purpose maybe i can just get a trim piece and wire my table behind.

Interested to see those posts. I never ran across one.

The last time I checked MHD flash was not compatible with any wireless adapter. In any case, for me, after installing MHD on my Avin 8.8 and using either a BimmerWorks or a One-Stop-Electronics OBDII cable connected to the Avin USB port, attempting to flash caused the headunit to reboot, aborting the flash and any other process that was running. Something about the MHD software is incompatible with Avin headunit I had. As I mentioned, you can still log.


Perhaps the newest revisions of the Avin software eliminate this problem. I doubt it but its possible

It is the car sending a can packet to shutdown the unit during flash initialization you would need to toggle a secondary power source and disconnect the lvds connector

interesting... I was looking to see if they had any updated units with 8.0.

Like you said it does cost 2x as much so I probably won't bite the bullet but maybe someone else can try.

The second link said:

Quote:
We skipped selling Android 7.1 due to “Overheating Issues and firmware bugs” and we have never offered them to our market as customer satisfaction is our main goal. Unfortunately we got some reports that some units are even sold By other suppliers with “FAKE ANDROID VERSION”. Our target as before is high quality units and customer service By phone,email or live video chat directly from Canada ( Eastern time 10AM-5PM ).

Are people with android 7.1 having these problems?

So this one Szkianda as CIC and CCC with or without Aux... I am wondering if they have figured out how to make it work without having to run a cable to AUX line....

Might contact them, but I am afraid of a language barrier, and they might not understand what I am asking....

I spoke with Avin and they wont be pushing out the 8.1 (oero) until sometime next year. I wonder if other popular brands will wait until then as well...

670 dollars vs 350 for the 7.1 on aliexpress... Is 7.1 vs 8.1 really worth a 300 dollar premium?

I put my order for the 7.1 Navistar yesterday... Hope i dont get buyers regret but I dont see how I can justify 300 for 8.1... I think the the only thing 8.1 has is amazon music, which would be nice, but I dont see it being with the price difference....
