Hi it arrived although it was supposed to be from Germany not china so there will be trouble if i get a customs charge :evil:

any ways im having some issues with the sound and front camera i have the qashqai j10 with the 360 cameras and standard speakers. i got the px6 radio image of the back is below

Image

if i use the cable below (Dasaita DYX028-1) the camera works on reverse but not on forwards and the volume on everything is very low i went into factory setting and turned everything up to 20 and i can just about hear it on that but its not loud

Image

however if i use the standard cable the sound is fantastic but there are no cameras , am i doing something wrong ?

i have the red and white cables of the Dasaita DYX028-1 into no 2,4,5 and 6 and the yellow into no 13 or 15
You need the CAN-bus box and another wiring loom to get the 360 cameras to work. Contact the seller for advise about the sound and CAN-box.

Hi Chosan thanks for getting back to me i messed about today and got the sound working, it was as easy as disconnecting the red and white cables and leaving them dangling :roll:

can you give me more info on this can-bus box as the cable i got pic below says its compatible with the 360 view ?
The cameras are coming up in the 360 view and reverse angle but only when it is in reverse gear however when i open the app i get a blank screen with a yellow triangle

Just fitted similar unit and similar loom on a j11 but your pics missing the connector for the canbus and on the j11 the loom with 12-15 above was not needed. Swapping yellow vid connectors got both cameras working and as far as i know only get reversing camera when in reverse

I would've thought CarPlay is rendered not needed as full android unit. Got to be cheaper ways to mirror the phone.
I bought via eBay and paid £25 for built in car play as wasn’t keen on Bluetooth apps connecting to my iPhone. It’s cheaper than the usb dongle kit and once you connect to Bluetooth then go to settings general CarPlay to connect also ensure you allow connection when phone is in cabin etc.

The zlink app gives you large screen access to certain apps and music messages etc and Siri reads your messages out. So if you have iOS phone car play is a great option and better than via android.

I have just installed mine today (dasaita max6 px6 ) on a nissan qashqai
Have a few questions and wish to have answers :

- Headunit shutsdown when I press start/stop button while I still didnot open driver door meaning how to keep it powered on ACC only as this is crucial for me
- I want to make 3g/4g modem works in any of the 3 usb ports but when I plug it nothing happens though the modem stick led blinks
- Phone Built in app is crap , contacts and their names are not showing in the app although I allowed contact sharing from phone
- how to change Annoyning ringtone and its volume when I get a call as it is very annoying and loud
- is malaysk rom or any cutom rom beneficial for android head unit just like the phone as I am mainly using maps , Spotify and BT calls meaning not a powerful usage like my phone

I'm not very technology minded so wouldn't like to attempt this myself. Does anybody know of anybody or a company that could fit one of these for me. I'm based in the North West but work around the UK. Thanks for any advice.

For anyone interested
Internal MIC is great and didnot need the external one
My main issue now as a hardware is that unit shutdown when I stop the engine BUT I didnot open driver door
Mainly I cannot run the unit unless engine is running or in the ON position ( where the car will turn it off after 5 mnts to save battery )
It is crucial.in waiting scenarios or want to listen to.some tracks with friends while engine is not running

seems headunit cannot identify the auto acc feature
I believe the solution will be in the canbus factory settings but it needs a working combo as the settings are not that few

Hello @hgtdave and all

I have modified the wiring as the technician said
ACC is now on the cigarette lighter but it doesnot behave like stock unit

It keeps unit powered on even if I opened the door and locked the car and moved away then auto switch off after 15 minutes unlike stock unit

Which stock used to be on unless I opened the door or passed 20 mins whichever nearest

I need it to behave like stock exactly and is it related to the canbus if it is old or corrupted ?

Please assist me and thanks
