Geralt Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 (edited) Hello All, I'm installing this head unit from Audio Tech Direct: https://www.erisin.co.uk/products/erisin-es8112c-8-core-android-100-car-stereo-dab-gps-satnav-for-toyota-hilux-rav-4-corolla-vios-4g-wifi-bluetooth-carplay-dsp Thought I'd log anything others might find useful as I go along. Operation seems fairly quick compared to an XTRONS unit I had installed before which was the main reason for replacement. The XTRONS was infuriating to use. One problem with the new HU is that my Google Pixel 6a will pair but not connect by Bluetooth. Other phones do connect to the HU (i.e. Samsung S22, Sony Xperia XZ1) and the Pixel 6a connects to other devices including my car, the old XTRONS unit (typical!) and various audio devices in the home. Clearly there’s some kind of incompatibility for this device combination. The only time this would be a problem for me is streaming music while occupying the back of the van. My workaround at the moment, is to use an high quality (aptX) BT audio adapter located in the storage compartment below the radio and connect via the AUX input on the HU. The plus side is that this would be better quality audio (aptX) than the built in BT (A2DP). Whether this is a noticeable difference in a van environment, I'm not sure yet. Android Auto works via USB cable with my Pixel 6a but I won't be using it like this most of the time.
