Head Unit Interface Progress

I honestly love this unit but it’s only great after I completely customised it to my liking.

I also recently purchased the CarPlay dongle from Dasaita which allows me to use my iPhone seamlessly. This feature actually blew me away, it’s amazing how well it integrates with the Android head unit, plug your iPhone in and it launches CarPlay instantly.

I’m not actually interested in all native Android features, I only want this unit for CarPlay and Track Torque OBD Monitoring for this years track days, both features work well.

I’ve spent so much time modifying the interface, and it’s simple and works exactly how I want it.

Screenshots with some information.
