I have Carista (because it does all that I need and is inexpensive). I notice that there are several specific apps for monitoring the status of the DPF and regens etc. What (Android) apps are people using specifically to monitor the DPF?
I use android auto for maps on my 71plate T6.1. Basic entertainment unit.
I use a Bluetooth bone conducting Shox headset for calls, I want to use this while driving for calls, with audio through the van speakers as normal. The hadsfree via the van is terrible and nobody can hear me...
I am having to replace my standard satnav/audio for a new unit, A Pioneer unit with android auto. It has just occured to me I often go places with no phone coverage, will this mean my android auto satnav will not work?
Seen these and they look ok. I’m wondering if anyone has one and if they are easy to fit and any good. I’m looking to upgrade but don’t want to spend £1k + on an alpine or Kenwood.
I would get the dab and reversing camera add ons...
Google seem to be having a nightmare with the Android Auto support in Android 13 with certain brands, in my case Sony Xperias. My main phone only connects over USB 1 time in 20...
For those that like a quick answer here's what worked for me, I'll explain a bit more below. This is an Amazon...
Hello friends, good morning.
I am writing to you because I have a friend with a T6 Multivan from June 2021, and we are a bit frustrated because we cannot get wireless Android Auto.
I think the Infotainment system is a Discovery Media, and data are:
It doesn't have Wifi, and wired Android...
I had a thought yesterday whilst using Carista - if it had a CarPlay / Android Auto companion app, it could feasibly allow you to make a custom selection of readings / gauges to display on your head unit whilst driving. I emailed their customer service to suggest it.
I was thinking that I’d...
On my last T6 paid for factory sat nav/head unit and found the satnav to be pretty crap.
So this time decided to just go with standard head unit and use my phone connected via android auto for calls and satnav.
its driving me nuts, sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn’t
Hey all, I have a 2021 T6.1 with the attached head unit.
I think I'm doing something wrong or have missed a setting as even VW wouldn't design something this bad!
If I have a phone (Android) plugged in with a cable and switch the engine off and then turn the engine back on without...
Hi friends every time I plug my android into the system I get these messages which I can't get rid off...if anyone knows how to sort that will be a big help..its rather distracting !
I stop the vehicle to look and the message dissapears !
Hi - I have a 2019 T6 with factory fitted composition colour infotainment system. I'm assuming it's never had any update (not sure where to obtain any updates). Just wondering if there is any way of getting this system to work with Android Auto or Apple Car play? Thanks V much.
Has anyone used a Motorola MA1 to connect to Andriod Auto? I want to make my connection to the media unit wireless. Just got NR Coding to "fix" the software issue not allowing me to use my phone. VW said it could not be done on my 2016 T6 :sneaky:
I've got an android double din headunit that I purchased about 5 years ago to fit to a BMW 1 series but we got rid of the car and it was never fitted. New out the box.
I think it's a generic headunit in that it will fit any single din chassis but has a double din face. The screen...
Hi there experts
Can i sanity check something as i look to get a new / used Van
In a T6 you can only connect (to use Google maps / Spotify app etc) to an Android device via a wired USB connection? eg via a USB port in the Dash / comfort dash, if you have AppConnect pre-installed. There is...
AA wireless unit, brand new in box. These are a way to run wireless andriod on a wired only headunit. Good bits of kit but take about 4 months to arrive, so long in my case that it was no longer required.
£85 posted to anywhere in the uk.
We are having a T6.1 converted currently, having the USB-C ports moved to the glovebox as we know we want to connect and hideaway a kit to make the CarPlay wireless. I’ve seen a few kits but they seem to do either iPhone or Android, and we would want to be connecting both.
I have just bought one of these (T-Box) Full Android AI Box - Convert Your Car Screen to Android Tablet for my 2018 T6, fitted with the Discovery Media System.
Basically, when the AI box is plugged in to the vans usb, it connects via the Apple Car Play of the vehicle's infotainment system...
I plan on installing a 360 camera system on our LWB T6.
The standard headunit will not accept a camera (oem or 3rd party), so I have to change it.
As much as I would like to replace it with something like an Alpine or Kenwood unit, the funds available for this whole project do not stretch that...
