If your car head unit does not power on successfully, you can try the following solutions to fix the problem:

  1. Check that the 12 volt and memory wire are connected together. This is a common mistake that can cause issues to make the car head unit fail to power on.
  2. Examine your Android 4.4 car head unit plug carefully, do you see in cuts in the wiring? Does the plug look damaged? If you do see any damaged in both aspects, then replace the plug.
  3. Turn on your car ignition. Some car head units only turn on, when you turn on the ignition and start your car.
  4. Check the fuse in the head units fuse holder. If its blown replace it and you hopefully fixed it.
  5. Get a voltmeter and check the voltage on the red color wire, the wire that supplies 12 volts to the stereo. If it slows a reading of 12 volts, then it indicates you have got a good power source and its not the problem.
  6. You could have a bad ground connection. Check if the ground wire is touching the car’s mental. If there is any rust on the ground terminal, get a screwdriver and scratch it off.

Well, with all the help and advice I got brave enough to see what happened…It’s installed and all seems good. I have accessed the menu and set the steering wheel control OK and installed the GPS in the compass cluster. Was a little worried about that I’d break the dash panel, it put up more resistance than I expected, but I didn’t.

The mapping works great (though haven’t been anywhere yet, but locked on to the location really fast).

The OE brackets line up perfectly. And the unit fits the hole perfectly. It powers up with the Toyota logo straight off. It looks OE which is great.

I plugged three of the five connections out of the OE head into the back as shown earlier. The others don’t seem to connect, one is to the Aux and we know that doesn’t work, not sure about the other but it all functions withe the exception of the iPod. I didn’t connect any of the RCA’s or other wires at this stage.

I plugged the iPod lead and the USB lead supplied direct into the unit (LM-C0676), but not sure whether the slots are different. Anyway, the iPod is connected (powered and shows on iPod screen), but not communicating with the head unit.

Now I just need to  learn how to use Android.

So here’s the installation process:

This thing is amazing. There is so much more you can do. There are some minor issues that can be resolved with a little perseverance.

Pros:

  • WiFi Tethering: This unit connects up fine to my cellphone and tethers perfectly, everytime, without fail.
  • Bluetooth: While the head unit is connected to cellphone’s WiFi tether, it’s also able to connect to both my cellphone’s Bluetooth for audio and cell, as well as my Bluetooth OBDII unit which I use with the provided torque app.
  • Play Store: All apps work and I have not had any issues at all.
  • Radio: Signal in my part of the USA is fantastic. Sound is strong, and very little “hiss” for weaker stations.
  • DVD Player: Mine worked when tested, but I don’t use it, so I can’t comment extensively.
  • USB: I connected a 64 bit USB thumb drive and it has not given any issues.
  • 3G Dongle: I haven’t used this, but from reading at XDA forums, there are some issues with powering the device. A powered USB hub fixes this issue.
  • GPS: iGo app is not my favorite, so I simply downloaded Waze, and changed the setting in the GPS settings of Android to use the Waze app when Navigation button is pressed. You can do this with any GPS app, such as Google maps, which worked perfectly well with the satellite view as well.

Cons:

  • Tuner: Looses presets occasionally. Not sure why yet. It’s not a big issue for me.
  • Random: When I use certain apps, and don’t close them before I turn off the car, they force close when the head unit restarts. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of.
  • Fitment: Unit is about 1/4″ wider than USA standard double din head unit. You’ll need to trim the bezel on your car to fit. If you don’t want to do this, then this unit is not good for you.

In Summary

I have waited a long time for a head unit that could do everything I wanted it to do without issues. This unit does them all, with only very minor issues. All of which I feel will be resolved with future firmware and ROM releases. The manufacturers are constantly releasing updates and fixes, and are very hands on in the development and support. I highly recommend it !

How to Prevent Mazda Car Stereo Theft

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on RedditShare on TumblrShare on StumbleUponDigg thisShare on VK

Actually, you have a variety of options in reducing your risk of car stereo theft. Some cost money, while others are more strategic and are completely free.

car_theft

 

Solutions:

  • Check your doors and windows every time you leave the car to make sure they’re completely closed and locked. Unlocked doors and open windows pose as advertisements to thieves to target your car stereo and your other possessions in the car.
  • Park your car in a secured area, such as a garage, whenever you are able to. When parking in public, park in well-lit areas that have a lot of foot traffic. Thieves target vehicles that offer the least chance of them getting caught. Cars that are in the dark, parked near an easy escape route or are isolated from the public are more likely to suffer break-ins.
  • Keep the stock radio in your car if it works well and you like the sound quality. Thieves very rarely target or steal stock radios, because they don’t have much resale value. They also don’t fit well in different models of cars, giving them very limited usage outside of the vehicle in which they were originally installed.
  • Invest in an Mazda Android 4.4 car stereo with a removable face if you choose to upgrade your car radio from the stock model. Remove the face of the stereo and take it with you anytime you leave the car. Never leave the face in the glove box or anywhere else in the car, because people often do this and thieves will look for it.
  • Consider tinted windows to help prevent thieves from seeing what type of stereo you have in your car.

By Steve

I installed this stereo in my 09 Mazda 3. I say “stereo” but it really is so much more. It’s more like an entertainment center for my car, because it has changed the whole feel of travel. Simply put, I love this!
  • GPS
Great GPS included with accurate maps and still can use video outputs, so DVDs play to rear monitors for kiddos in the back seat.
  • APP 
All the apps I’ve tried work flawlessly and switching between them is very fast.
  • Quality
Not much else I can say other than if you are debating on this unit, take my word for it, you will be very pleased with the build quality and ease of install.
  • Audio
I should also mention the audio playback is well above stock car stereo sound and everything is crisp and clear.
  • Customer Service
On a side note, I contacted the seller to ask a question about SD card playback and was pleased to get response almost immediately. It seems that customer service is top notch as well.
