Is the nextbase coming through the screen?
Not the R4.0/navi 900 screen, that's for sure. :)

Re: Number Plate LED’s Fitted !

Please for gods sake stop calling them canbus LEDS that "fool the canbus". The CANBUS is some control logic busses, where data flows from one control unit to another. In reality what happens is that the control box, the individual bulb is connected to, has an internal shunt resistor that it measures...

Re: Service Parking Assist

Mine also suddenly began going off on the back.

Found out it was the trailer hitch, protection cap that had been put on and then tipped a bit. That was enough to make it go off.

Dont use it much, so just took it off and put it in the bag that it came with and store it in the car and this solved it.

Re: Android auto nav and audio volume?

Didn't cost me anything as it was done under warranty. They did it last March I think... The radio also kept losing station names and other weird stuff so I took it in for warranty repair, and all the faults disappeared by updating the firmware. Mine does that also. A bit strange that with this man...

Re: CANBus Hacking anyone?

Do all the Astra K 's have power folding mirrors? That's a big no. Atleast not where i live, they are a paid extra, and almost no one buys them. Vauxhall has always been really stupid with regards to folding mirrors, making them electrically foldable but entirely manual. There are so many other bra...

Re: Android auto nav and audio volume?

The nav direction audio and music have separate volumes in newer versions of the infotainment firmware. Before FW update my (2016) car had them both on same volume control, but after update the nav audio was on a separate channel and could be adjusted independendently. The nav audio can be adjusted...

Re: Any possible way for upgrading to wireless Carplay?

My R4.0 has both android auto and working wifi that can connect to my home wifi and act as a hotspot. BUT...I would not hold my breath for VX to do a firmware upgrade to enable wireless Apple/Android screencasting. Only chance is if they do it because they still produce that model of car and want it...

Re: Rear Light Cluster

That was my thinking. Will take the cluster out tomorrow, just thought it was strange for everything to blow at once. For that to happen, there would have to be some sort of over-voltage situation, that would affect all bulbs, all bulbs would have to be lit at the time AND it would have to be conta...

Re: Android auto nav and audio volume?

I have used android auto with google maps a few times and it also frustrates me that the volume of the music and the navigation is not seperate. If music level is low, the spoken directions are also really low. Have not found a way to adjust them individually, and i have tried the trick with adjusti...

Re: Guess that connector.

Its a shame that wiring diagrams for newer cars are very hard to get access to. Would have been an easy job, figuring out what that connector is for, if i had access to the wiring harness diagrams for the car. Would just need to find the big plug that is in the harness going to the "under the armres...
