it's pretty elegant. Very OEM, very clean. As an earlier post mentioned, I've seen one little glitch (the blurry text on one since icon on the home screen) - but that's super minor. aka it's really clean and works great --- including integration into factory mic. More details from 718 Forum

  1. USB Flasher kit or USB Lan adapter from D-link DUB e100 or J5CREATE JUE130
  2. A windows based laptop. If you have a decent technology background (e.g. strong windows networking skills), then it's a pretty easy install. If you have no idea what a subnet mask is or how to config a VPN connection, in case you have few ideas on how to set up the system, feel free to send to us the team viewer, we will set it up remotely.

No worry, we will recommend you to buy 2pcs of each below which we are sure they will be compatible working with your car end.

  • Unichip USB Flasher or
  • USB Lan adapter from D-link DUB e100 or

  • Order the kit from Unichip (using the link above). It includes a USB NIC and an SD card with config patch files. It arrived from Hong Kong in about 1 week.
  • Find a Windows laptop and download/install TeamViewer (it's free desktop sharing / remote control software)
  • Put the SD Card with the config files into the car's SD Card Slot (the slot on the left)
  • Turn on the car (Engine on key position)
  • Connect the laptop to two separate network connections: (1) your regular connection to the internet, and (2) a wired Ethernet connection to your car, via the USB port in the car (see photo below)
  • Make sure your laptop has an ethernet link to the car (IP address is the stereo's PCM4.0 IP address)
  • Install Unichip's port forwarder software on your laptop and enable the port forwarding with a green status
  • Shut off windows firewall and antivirus software on your laptop
  • Use WhatsApp to communicate in real-time with the Unichip Engineer +8618823344857
  • UniChip's tech logs onto your PC via TeamViewer to check/verify the config of your laptop (that's all that Teamviewer is used for)
  • Connect to Unichip's VPN
  • Launch the port forwarder software on the laptop
  • Sit back for 15 minutes which Unichip's Engineer changes the config of the software on your stereo. While this is happening, you're basically flying blind (other than watching the byte count on the VPN status)
  • Stereo reboots and Android Auto is enabled
  • Unplug the laptop from your car
  • Plug your phone into the USB port - and smile as Android Auto launches!

Normally 10-15mins if the laptop all set up.
