MY15, 7P6, V6 TDI with air
thanks Rotelman69, buying locally, with support makes sense given the complicated installs and troubleshooting others have experienced. Good luck with your installation. cheers, RobHi RobCli,
I ended up purchasing the JoyeAuto unit from Xtreme Car Deco in Box hill. The guy there was really helpful. He is selling the units on ebay for $750 but if you go and see them and buy direct they will do it for $680. They take Credit card and provide full Tax invoice with 12 month warranty. Sam is the Guys Name: [email protected]. I think they must have moved recently as the Web page address has not been updated to the Box hill one. They are at 500 Station st Box hill.
I started to install the unit on Tuesday and had some issues. As we all know the instructions are poor and even the official Joyeauto you tube video lacks some detail. Believe me I have read though thise posts many times
After rough installing system to check to make sure it works I had a couple of issues.
Unit would power on and Green LED inside Joyeauto box would come on and then turn off again. I sent message to Sam at Xtreme and he came back with I had to connect the ACC red wire also for it to work. Instructions only say only to connect 12V yellow. This fixed the problem with the unit and I was able to get the Wifi Signal and the Bluetooth to connect to my iPhone.
Second issue I have is I get no display at all coming up on the head unit. I get sound but cannot control the volume and of course no display, not even original GUI. If I remove the Joyeauto module the Display is back ok.
Sam at Extreme has been super helpful with the troubleshooting via TXT message and he also even rang me to help. He said if I have no diplay and have the Cables to the Display(in/out) correctly then the CanBus connection is not good. I used the wire taps he supplied me which I think may not be very good. I went out today an purchased UNIXON JOWX-T2 wire taps from Jaycar.( can't find Posi-tap in Aus) I will swap these over tomorrow morning and try again. I did tap the can bus under the carpet but noticed there were 2 sets of cable with the same colors. From what I read on the forum, you can use either set? Sam told me you can use either Set.
I also have tapped the 12v& GND and the pin 10 connection from the plug on the back of the MMI connector at DVD drive.
Would be interested if anyone else has had issues with the display not working. Would be keen to know if the Can Connection is unplugged that the whole display goes out.
I will post an update tomorrow hopefully when I get time to try the new Can Bus taps.
