This is actually another that I was already looking at, there are many to choose from and when the money pot is full I will be making my choice

That specific unit needs tethering from your phone using wifi or else you can't use a2dp. There are other similar units which have a built in slot for a sim-card.
So you can not stream music by Bluetooth to a pair of headphones that support A2DP unless you tether your phone to the Android head unit in order to use the data as a wifi connection ?

Or are you saying you can not stream music using Apps such as deezer,spotify and the likes ?

Using Bluetooth tethering , no. WiFi tethering, yes.

This thread has gone very off topic.

The mod is solid as long as it is installed correctly. There is an instructional video on YouTube which also shows them in action:




Hope this helps

ajmetro, did you read this Post because this was when the Forum ordered a quantity of these kits around Apr 15 and I am sure if there were problems there would have been feedback on the problem on the Forum. There was also a video and instruction sheet made up, ours is still working perfectly and was well worth the money - Dave 😉

I have installed them as well together with a work light 8-)
Be careful to correctly install the brackets because in the video shown above the brackets are placed the wrong way around and the do not close up tightly that way ;)

I saw the other topic as well but the video is no longer available.

Enjoy!

It is important to assemble these Kits as specified if in fact you get assembly instructions. The “Group Buy” Kit did not have these, but a video was made and temporary instructions put in place until the Russian Supplier Urory supplied them in the end a good job was done.
Incidently regarding the error video the difference can be seen here and the Group Buy Bracket was different also as there are a lot of these kits now on the market. Just fitted ours on the J11B still excellent - Dave 😏

Faulty Assembled Bracket :

Lapalmeraie video :

BFB0DBD7-C8A5-4489-A256-7620172F494C.jpeg

This Bracket to me looks incorrect as the Swivel for the Cylinder has no fixed position and can be moved within the slot length - no datum points.

Original Urory Group Buy Bracket :

With this Bracket there is only minimal clearance around the Fixing Bolt (Hole) as the Swivel is Screwed into a Threaded Hole.

Hi Dave

I think you accidentally inverted the faulty bracket install with my version. :mrgreen:

I installed as in the previous video as well and that we not only the strut has some clearance to slide over time but the bracket doesn’t line up well making it possible to come loose or bent over time.
The other way round however it looks much more like yours and it fits very well.
Mine, from AliE, didn’t came with instructions so the tutorial seemed worth the effort ;)

Does anyone have a listing for struts that fit the J11b?
