I’ve got a ghosting head unit that struggles in some areas of the screen with touch screen workability so have been using my phone via car play for maps etc. I need to remove the head unit and send it for repairs but haven’t got round to it yet and since picking up my new phone today...
Hi. Quite chuffed with this and wanted to share. I installed some rear speakers (Focal RCX-100 4” Coaxial) with a view to adding them to my head unit. After monitoring my starter battery, and seeing it sit at about 12.3-12.4V, I then wished I could run sound off the leisure battery to avoid...
Hi all. Can anyone shed light on why I am suddenly getting a message asking me to switch the ignition on in order to connect the bluetooth even though the engine is running? Initially the DAB radio wouldn't work either but that seems to have righted itself, not sure what I did there?!

I’ve just installed a new head unit in my T5.1 and everything seems to be working, however the Bluetooth symbol keeps flashing on the dash (see video if I’ve managed to successfully embed it!).
Has anyone seen this before and have any idea how I can fix it?
I have something rattling about in my passenger side of the dash when I turn corners. At first I thought it was in the air vents but they are clear. I’m now thinking I need to take this out to get into behind the air vents to see if there is something loose.
Does anyone know what it is ?
I’ve got the basic media system, 5” screen with no app connect.
I was sitting in my van today with the key in the ignition, engine off, music on, and phone not plugged in via the usb.
I went to record a voice message on WhatsApp, and the moment I pushed the microphone button to record on my...
Bought a wireless CarPlay adapter for the van from here.

After all my escapades in modifying and using the RCD330+, I decided to do what I always end up doing and start a new project with only a week to go til my annual fortnight touring Europe. So I've ordered a Kenwood 8019. (I shied away from the undoubtedly better 9190 due to budget). One of the...
We have recently developed a small 4 x relay unit that be controlled over Bluetooth and I was wondering if there's a demand for such a device in this community? It works with an App (Free) on your phone and allows you to control up to 4 devices remotely.
The unit is powered by 5v and...
As per the title, I have a Kenwood DNX9180DABS in a VW T6, and I cannot seem to get anything to pair with Bluetooth. Just wondered if anybody has a solution. I have checked the settings and Bluetooth is turned on and set to visible.
The phone does work with CarPlay. It’s an iPhone...
