Does anyone else have this problem as well?
I haven't tried listening to the radio after installing the new custom fw. But I wonder if the mcu makes a difference. Are you using the bimmertech mcu?

No I am using the Andream MCU which was recommended for version 1 of the CFW.

I would try using the bimmertech mcu with version 2. I am. I will also see if I can replicate the issue during my morning commute tomorrow.

I canít find anywhere to change anything to do with voice apart from Voice Search, which doesnít change the voice it talks to you in.

This is on an iPhone, maybe itís hidden somewhere. I donít mind him, was just a surprise.

I'm going to install the newest Bimmertech MCU later and see if that fixes the problem.

Thanks for the reply Besty78

At the camera end (number 3 in the diagram) I have connected the blue wire to the white wire on the reversing light and the black wire to the brown wire on the reversing light.

I think thats correct but I'm not getting a signal.

The RCA is connected at the front.

The connections I'm unsure about are Number 8. Any ideas?

thx

Just to make sure I understand.
I currently using carlin mcu and custom v1 and actually really happy with it (no echo on calls after playing with the setting) so i am really happy with it. The only thing i would like to change is auto connect to AA.

1. So I need to install v2.0.B0.mod and then bimmertech MCU?
2. If I would like to go back, I need to install carlink MCU and then custom V1 or carlinkit firmware?

Thanks.

Bimmertech MCU uses Steering wheel buttons option, what ise very terrible and not possible switch it on/off. No suggest install this MCU. Flashing back to AA MCU is not possible with Bimmertech FW.

I have the Andream unit in my F10 M5 and installed it perfectly.
SDK: 25.0.0.5.6.0.0.0
MCU: 20.4.2.14 (downloaded the MCU 20.06.02.zip...need to know how to upload to unit)

I use Apple Carplay as well through my iPhone 10.

1. Wifi shows on my phone as Carplay but says below it No Internet Data Available. PW is 8888888. Anyone have this issue?

Stop doing that, your WiFi should appear to be off as CarPlay has taken over. Go to your WiFi settings and forget the WiFi connection you manually connected to.

2. Phone calls come in on the Carplay, but when I call someone or use my calls through carplay I cant hear anyone but they can hear me. Also, sometimes if I answer through carplay the call immediately drops.

If I use my calls and have it connected through the BMW BT, both work.

This and #3 indicates you have some connection problem, try reseating the cables on the MMI box and the QuadLock on the head unit. Although from your description it does sound like the microphone is working correctly, just not routing the "speaker" side.

That said, I have removed my BMW BT connection as all calls route through CarPlay now and others have suggested the same.


3. USB plug doesnt seem to work but all connections are secure

What isn't working? Are you trying to load a video or music from it? Or upload the firmware?

4. How do I upload the latest firmware into the Andream unit? I downloaded MCU 20.06.02

This has definitely been addressed in the first threads, you need to format a thumb drive and place the contents of the zip file at the root of that thumb drive. As in, unzip the file and place the ISPBOOOT.BIN and upgrade.bin files not the .ZIP file.

5. Airplay doesnt recognize because the wifi doesnt have internet data

See #1.

Seeing if anyone could help and MUCH APPRECIATED.
See answers in red.

I had the same issue. Hopefully bimmertech resolves it at some point.

Custom software

Hi Cossie/Firefly
Wonder if you can answer a query or two. I am now running the Custom S/W v2.0 and the latest Bimmertech MCU. I have been getting told that when I make/receive a call (iPhone XR) the other person is getting an echo of their voice. Not Had that before. I noticed in the settings the following options:
Microphone Volume
Microphoe OP Gain
Microphone PGA Gain
Microphone AEC Delay
Microphone AEC Quality

After a quick Google AEC seems to be for correcting echo issues with Microphones in general. It is default set to 0 but has a range of 0-20. I have tried setting it to 10 and so far seems to have improved.

Am I on the right track with this?
Also, any idea what the other settings are for (other than the obvious volume)?

Cheers and thanks again for a superb piece of work with this Custom S/W
