    found out its not just android auto but any audio from source on tablet the volume is very low maybe 50% or more then signal from sync i found some gains but they where already set to 30 and max is 35 still not enough

    also what is the pw for when you hold down MCU upgrade screen its a diff pw then the Install Set code is 666888

    i think there are more setting under that section

    Did you adjust the gains through the "Install Set" menu?

    Password for "System Info" should be 7890

    When I did the most recent update, when I started the truck. the output gain of both Sync & Tablet would slowly increase on its own to the highest volume. I was able to fix by going into "User Setting" > ACC Volume and changing to no save.

    You might also play around with the Equalizer settings and see if that helps.

    So I got my unit the other day and it worked pretty much flawlessly right out of the box with my 802a 2019. tinkering around I have a few minor quirks

    I implemented some of the procedures listed here in this thread (removed the speah app)but I cannot seem to get "ok google" to work, it worked at one point but not now.

    Early in the thread someone mentioned to not use the included speaker; what do the red and black wires on the harness connect to? I get no sound/directions from google maps.

    No sound from back-up sensors.

    Opened doors do not always show or appear on screen, no big deal they appear on the dash.

    I installed the autoboot app as well as the web car guru launcher. After startup, the console appears, then the launcher but it goes right back to the console? I may try Nova...

    Is there a way to remove the index launcher completely, I hate that menu bar and only a few buttons are useful. Can you reprogram them to point to other apps?

    What is the secret to pairing the wheel buttons under settings.

    "Ok Google" will only work with a Launcher that doesn't support it. I use Nova Launcher and it works fine

    Early in the thread someone mentioned to not use the included speaker; what do the red and black wires on the harness connect to? I get no sound/directions from google maps.
    I installed the small included speaker, not sure if I have ever heard it though, could be that the Sony center channel speaker is drowning it out. Are you using Google Maps through Android Auto or just a stand alone app?

    No sound from back-up sensors.
    Sorry, can't help, I have seen other mentioned this as well, but mine work (2015 F150)

    Opened doors do not always show or appear on screen, no big deal they appear on the dash.
    I believe only the built in launcher supports open doors showing on the screen

    I installed the autoboot app as well as the web car guru launcher. After startup, the console appears, then the launcher but it goes right back to the console? I may try Nova...
    I'm using autoboot to go to the SYNC screen (what they call Console) and is working fine with Nova.

    Is there a way to remove the index launcher completely, I hate that menu bar and only a few buttons are useful. Can you reprogram them to point to other apps?
    I possible could uninstall the index launcher, but that would not remove the top icons as they are hard coded into the system. The firmware I'm running now allows 3 or 4 of the icons to run another application, but I can't remember what those are

    What is the secret to pairing the wheel buttons under settings.
    My came programmed from the factor and work like they should

    Once I scanned the QR code in the WeChat app, it did generate a code, but I did not need to put the code in, it automatically activated.

    Is there a way to change the look of the UI? There's no way I could look at that 2003-esque UI.

    You can use a different launcher, Nova improves the look and functionality. See my video at:
