I stuffed a microfiber cloth on top of the brain to prevent that stuff from rattling.



Here's what it looks like when playing Spotify using BT audio. It displays an oliscope and the track name. You can make this full screen and get rid of the mustang and Tach/Speedo.

Rooting and Updating:

First, go to stangatx.tk and follow the procedure to update the system to the latest Feb 2017 Update if needed.

If you go to "Settings" then "More Settings" and "About Device" and your software version is 5.1.1, AND YOUR SPEED SHOWS IN MPH, AND TEMP on HVAC SHOWS IN Fahrenheit, YOU DO NOT NEED ANY UPDATES.

If it shows 4.4.4, you need to do the January Update, then allow the unit to reboot on it's own, then 2 more full reboots before installing the February Update.

Then go to www.kingroot.net FROM THE BROWSER ON THE UNIT while connected to WiFi and follow the procedure for auto-root.

Follow instructions on stangatx.tk site for switching to SuperSU

Okay, now that you're rooted, install "Root Uninstaller" [RU] from the Play Store. (I recommend spending the few bucks on the Pro version) Make sure you have a copy of whatever apps you want to replace somewhere (on USB or in the download folder) then go in to [RU] and BACKUP THE EXISTING APP then Force Stop it, and Uninstall it. Now shut the car (or run power) off, and open the door, then power the unit back on. Now go back into [RU] and make sure the App you removed isn't still listed, and you are free to install the "updated" versions from StangATX. With the Pro Version, you can convert it back to a System App, and prevent accidental uninstallation later, and it won't take up space in your app list!

I don't know that I'll do an install video, because it's the same steps as the TomTop, but weather permitting, I may install it tomorrow. I don't think I'm gonna wait for LEDs.

That's because it replaces the usb ports built into the car if you use them. Instead of having one in the armrest and one in the console, you'd have 2 loose dongles floating around.

Just a finding, the password for advanced settings is 8861 but there's not much in there.

Also, this unit DOES give you auto climate control! Set the temperature (which is now in Fahrenheit) and hit auto, you're done!
