    I have just got my Prado back on the road, I had a quick look in the factory settings menu and the door setting is in "can bus" then I have changed mine to "rudder right" and front door "swap" there are also settings for air con etc in there as well.
    The hazard switch on my unit from memory uses the same switch which only just reaches as it changes sides fro right to left but I am pretty sure they supplied a different button which fits onto the original switch. As soon as i get time I will take some pictures if it is any help, I think the old ones I posted are no longer on this updated forum.

      I forgot to say about the am/fm radio which works fine, again from memory which isn't very good I seem to remember there were two aerial plugs but only one socket? cant remember how I got over it but it wasn't an issue.

        I haven't tried to access the CANBUS options yet. Hopefully, it's one of the passwords they gave me.

          The USB stick works via a seven port USB hub. I'm surprised it works.

            Do have a play around in the factory settings menu, the password for my unit is 126 which I think is common to the units that the Chinese have cloned the firmware from!
            Have you sorted out your maps and the various other things that these heads units are capable of? I attach a couple of screenshots, which may make owners of the standard head unit with two year old maps wonder if they should do something about it.

              Hello Michael

              I am interested in the unit you have and about to buy from here https://es.aliexpress.com/item/12-1-...829888455.html

              A few questions :-

              Does it allow split screen on the navigation as I want to display camera input and nav at the same time?
              Can you please post a side view and front view of the completed install thanks?

              Thanks

                I'm at Fraser Island right now. I'll respond when I get back on Monday. Cheers.

                  Google maps wants all the screen. Maybe there's an app that can give better screen control? There is an icon that can shift a split screen situation i.e. from top of the screen to the bottom of the screen, but nothing to shrink a full-size view (that I've found, so far).

                    Is that a Spanish version of Aliexpress?

                      I'm guessing you'd want rear view + nav when towing? I'd like that too. I'll have to wait and see after I install the rear view camera.

                      But, here's a question for the Androiders, is there anything needing to be set to get the FM/AM radio to work. I tried nearly all the different regions -



                      Also, there's a couple of antennae sockets in the omni-loom apart from the socket in the unit. I'm wondering why.

                        Hi Michael,

                        Just wondering if you sorted out your A/C. Just installed mine and everything works bar the A/C. Not sure if its a setting or if I have it plugged into the wrong point.

                          Yes. Back in October. I initially contacted them by Facebook, IIRC. The lady got me to install WeChat on my phone. From there we had a conference text with the tech guy (they typed in English but I heard them talking Chinese). We ran through some passwords until we got into the factory settings. Had a win after the second profile was tried. I guess you could have left it unplugged. Mine was just a single plug. GL model. Not sure about the fancier models :-)

                            Cheers for that. Mine is a single plug too as I have a GX so just wondering if you plugged it into the canbus (orange box) or into the actual headunit. I have a plug that fits the plug for the AC but it only has one wire coming out of the plug that goes to the head unit where the plug from the car has like 8 wires. I might see if I can change the vehicle profile on mine as well

                              What was I thinking? Mine is the GX model as well. If I recall correctly, the plug for controlling the A/C goes to a socket at the rear of the Tesla screen unit (not the orange canbus unit).
