NO Logic and $$$$$$
Just saw this:
No note on Aerpro website or Facebook or Google search on this product. Seller looks to be fine going by Feedback. Opportunities would now be plentiful if this replaced our MyLink units...
That’s impressive. And not excessively priced either. Would just need to find a decent quality double-din headunit to suit - I’d want some more info on what headunit would suit and make sure they retain all factory features like reverse cam, BT, aux in, steering wheel controls, etc.
Saw something similar on our local Autobarn FB page this morning.
Yes, I agree. There was no mention of a camera display on the ebay page. Dunno if that would be part of the CanBus digital stuff, I somehow doubt it, I use mine a lot and the guidelines that move with the steering wheel rotation are very handy!
The other thing is it looks like the Double Din unit has a much smaller screen than my Calais that has the GPS option.
Good to see that there is a viable alternative though.
While I'm here, my dealer has got onto Holden several times (at my insistence) about my crappy GPS (see my earlier posts) and they are going to replace the whole unit (I think and hope). Last time they replaced just the 'silver box' - whatever that was...
That’s the headunit itself (contains CD player in series 1). On the factory nav models this box also contains the navigation circuitry. Looks like this:
So can the camera alerts be added to a 2013 redline mylink?
Not by a Holden dealer, requires a hacker to do it.
or if you can find a dealer that will use a VIN from a model that has it to download the upgrade
I’ve not seen anyone reporting this as working; the poxy upgrade process itself seems to block this from working.
OH my bad , I thought I did read of someone that had done this , too many posts to trawl through so make that a no from me .
You could buy your self a Thinkware f770 dash cam , they have a really good "voice" notification of cameras and you get added protection of a dashcam
Edit " What kind of notification does the mylink make ?
As the maps are outdated and the camera locations are likely inaccurate, the sound MyLink makes is this so expect a speeding fine in the mail
lol these are the notifications I get through the dash cam https://thinkware.com.au/safety-camera-alerts
That's why I gave up on getting the mylink warning
just beeps, and a black bar on the mylink screen saying speed camera alert.
doesnt even come up on the HUD.
the camera locations seem to be even more out of date than the maps though
For those that have the latest sat nav updated on their VF II can someone please check if Gledswood Hills NSW show up in your suburbs list...
I.e. Amberley St, Gledswood Hills
That is in the lastest update on my MY15
Great. Will update it next time i take it for service
Do you know anyone who can do that Forg?
I believe Taz from Envyous Customs does it but you need to ship them the head unit and it needs a certain version of software loaded on it I tried to get Holden to load the requires version but they had no clue
No I don't, sorry, but I got that info from reading posts 'round here (ie. a search in this sub-forum might find someone).
