    Thanks, I am using the units mic. I had asked Tommie if the external mic would help and he said no. I'll try again with lowered volume.

    Has anyone found a way to remark out the launcher they use and substitute your own. The stock launcher is not bad but it is not how i want my to operate. I prefer native android or potentially one of the other launchers designed for cars.

    Has anyone figured out how to have the HU dial via your iphone (paired with bluetooth) when you click on a number within a web browser or within the Yelp app?

    You know what I'm talking about? With the iphone you can just click on that phone number within yelp and it will automatically dial. But when I try to do this with the HU it I get an error message that says: "No app found to open URL"

    Tommy, do you know?

    Can I ask you a few questions?
    1. Can you set a certain app to be the default navigation program (IE press the navigation button and it opens Waze?)
    2. Can you change the color of the buttons?
    3. Will this use any android app? (Will it display Pandora for example like it would on a phone w/ album art, etc?)
    4. Do you know what version of android these are on? I think I read 4.4 somewhere but I don't know.
    5. If on 4.4 do you know if these guys have any thought of getting up into 5.x or 6.x?
    6. Have you found a manual online anywhere? I'd like to see what all features this has.
    7. Do you know the OD of the bezel that will actually have to fit through a double din hole? I have a car in which the double din fits my AVIC-Z140 perfectly but it may or may not fit this unit w/o gaps (There is no bezel I can add to compensate for undersize)
    Thanks for this, I think I actually saw this on a Dodge board of some sort.

    1. Yes. Very simple to do in settings.
    2. No, you're stuck with the grey. It's not bad though!
    3. Yup itll display it great, just like it's in landscape mode on a tablet.
    4 & 5. Yup it's on 4.4.1 I think. Nah they want to keep it on that as far as I know. It would just cause alot of problems they'd have to fix to update it. They did offer firmware updates for their actual radio, so you do get updates on the radio.
    6. Not sure, there should be one on the website. If not, shoot them a message on their website and they'll be happy to send one over. There really nice guys there.
    7. I do not know it. It depends on what car you are driving. Mine is a Dodge charger. It should work with just the eBay double din radio bezel kit. It fits perfectly on the top and bottom, and just a little space on the side which is fine. Ill measure the diameter of my bezel for ya and post back.

    Been looking at various head units for a 2012 B7 Passat. I keep coming back to the AVIN Avant-2. Had a quick support discussion yesterday asking about Dual Zone - this could be a show stopper.

    Apparently it was able to display GPS on the head unit while displaying a DVD on the rear monitors (if attached). It could only show DVD on the rear, so this wasn't seen to be a popular design.

    Not sure what you would display on the rear of it wasn't a DVD... GPS for rear passengers? Surely they could see the front screen.

    This is exactly what I'm after, however the head unit apparently now mirrors to the rear screens - which is very limited and removes any "dual zone" functionality. This would mean if I'm looking at navigation my kids won't see the movie in the back. Or while I'm driving the movie will be displaying in the front which is illegal in both Australia and New Zealand.

    Is there any way around this? Can the rear screens be configured to display both independently OR mirror the front? Thoughts?

    Hey, great forum folks! Super helpful. I had a couple of questions about my new unit.

    1. Is it possible to tether an iPhone via USB to use my iPone's data connection?
    2. Any idea what the most current firmware for the radio app is? Wondering if I can update it for better reception.

    I believe you posted the same USB/iPhone question on one of my Youtube videos. My response from that video is pasted below. I have installed two firmware updates to the radio since I bought it (don't know what version I am running now) and I have never noticed an improvement in radio reception. I am guessing the limits of FM reception in the Avin are hardware related which means reception will never get better.

    From my Youtube video:
    I don't know if an iPhone can share its data connection over a cable. I don't think so, but I don't know for sure. The alternate plan would be to run a wifi hotspot on your iPhone and then have the Avin connect to the wifi hotspot. I no longer use USB tethering to share my phone data connection to my Avin. When my phone connects via bluetooth to my Avin, I have an app (Llama) automatically turn on my wifi hotspot on my phone (Nexus 6). The Avin is always looking for wifi connections so within a few seconds the Avin sees the wifi connection and connects to my phone. This is handy since it is automatic and lets me have data to the Avin without any effort.
