BMW looks and you and says tough luck thanks for the money sucks to be you.

-This thing is so frustrating. The audio on every setting skips or bounces every 5 seconds. (Radio, USB, NAV, AUX).

-The Android side doesn't even look like it even tries to start just a blank screen.

-When i have my phone hooked up using AUX. The screen says "no signal".

Clearly the thing is hooked up and is playing though the speakers in the car.

-When I shut the system off my subs give off a second of just bass.

I was so happy with this thing until these issues started.

I have uninstalled and installed this unit numerous of times and the same things happen. The connections are all correct.

Jeff don't get upset or anything with my comments its nothing to do with you. Its the company. You have my 101% support. Your great at what you do and what you know about this product. I should have got the WINCE. But now its too late and im going to have to deal with it(
issue 1 and 2 are the same thing, your android rom is stuck in a boot loop, the rom needs to be reinstalled, dynavin took it off their website for some very good reasons, if you need the ROM all you have to do is ask your dealer (me) for it......

The screen says no signal because its an A/V input and you are not feeding it a video signal.....thus "no signal"

you have a turn off thump with your sub.....this is a VERY common thing in car audio and does not have anything to do with the dynavin, it has to do with the order in which your components are turning off, a good installer can easily figure this out and fix your issue.



Although you are asking me to not be upset about your comments these types of comments are a bit inflammatory....and inaccurate. The reason I have been doing business with dynavin the last couple years is because they ARE responsive and DO care about making their product as good as possible and they DO support and back up their warranties etc......

2 of your 3 problems have to do with installation of other equipment and/or a misunderstanding of a those other pieces functions, and the third (the ROM being unavailable) is because they are changing something you dont know about on their website, no need to bad mouth them as a company when all you have to do is ask me for help. You used an analogy to buying an M3 and having issues with it.....if you called BMW to complain and want service, they would tell you to talk to your dealer.....well.....talk to your dealer!


Edit: and now I find out your unit is also second hand....Ill be happy to help you out with the ROM but you must realize that when you buy something second hand it opens the window for all kinds of issues....


For anyone reading this in the future, question #1 in my FAQ deals with the WinCE vs Android question....There are also links to all of the forum threads.....I cant make it any more clear, if you dont bother to read it and make an informed decision, neither Dynavin or I can be responsible for that.....

Gene if you are having issues you should be talking to me about them. 95% of the "issues" that i hear about are user/installation error...and if they aren't, thats what warranties are for. But I cant help you if I dont know what your problems are.

Also, go back to the beginning....nobody said these were perfect......in fact, before I was a dealer I was the guy who wrote the original review/thread on these, I gave the old units a 6/10, lots of functionality, lots of rough edges. But the best of the available options. With the D99 units a lot of the rough edges are now gone but it still seems that unrealistic expectations seem to be rampant on this forum....

Now with that said, I also understand that you cant please 100% of the people 100% of the time, so maybe its just not for you.

Ok so issue one and two are because my ROM needs to be reinstalled. Everytime it skips or thumps is because its booting again and again.

AUX doesn't bother me I just would think if you pluged audio the screen would just say AUX. Not "No Singal". -Solved-

For the sub thump issue I just turn my sub control knob all the way down before i leave the car and it works. -Solved-

Hi Jeff, my wifi has worked reliably once. (by reliably, I mean I was able to download 1 GB worth of data to install Sygic as my offline nav application).

Since then, it's either worked for 20 seconds or for the past 5 months, the wifi turns on and then turns off 6 seconds later, no matter which ROM I try (stock or M3Evolution's rooted ROM). I tried two different wifi dongles (the one provided and a Belkin I read worked well).

Just curious what your take is on this?

I read there's an issue with Android 2.2 with wifi. Is this accurate? Have you heard about other units having wifi issues?

Thanks!

Before you emailed me I looked at M3Revolutions thread, and downloaded his ROM and got all of the instructions. My Dynavin is back to normal.

His ROM and the Default ROM was included. I followed and downloaded all the programs and everything is fine. The audio skipping has stopped and the android works. It takes like 10 seconds for the android part to start when you first turn the dynavin on but after when you click NAV when its on it goes on right away. That doesn't bother me.

I feel so much better. lol.

Dead Dynavin Android?

Hi Guys,

I've had problems with my D99 Android since about a month after the install and have been lurking on all of these forums ever since. Since there is no dealer where I am, I brought my unit from the US (regrettably not from Jeff) and wanted to try everything I could before taking the "defective" (maybe?) unit back to the States and returning it under warranty. So please bear with me as I describe my long saga with my Dynavin and maybe someone here (JEFF!!!) can see if there is something that maybe I have overlooked.

Lets start off with saying that I drive an Audi S3 and that my unit is of the A3 variant but I am assuming the internals are identical to the ones in the the BMW's.

The first problem I had was, during install, with the CANBUS adapter that continually reset the unit (about once every 10 seconds). My installer said that it was a cheap Audi CANBUS controller that he had seen for other head units made for Audi and that it was probably defective but, by cutting the red wire from the CANBUS adapter and connecting it directly to the ACC, the problem was solved and the unit worked (apart from occasional issues with the Driver Information Display not updating and occasionally the steering controls not working which the installer said was all part of the "cheap" CANBUS controller). These issues never arose again, so I don't think it's a problem but wanted to add it for completeness.

The real problems started with the Android side of the Dynavin often coming up with application error messages, hanging and having to exit (internet radio/gps/settings.apk/etc.) I ignored these error and did some factory resets which did not help. I just assumed that the unit was slow/memory restricted and I would just live with occasional resets. However, at some point, the Android side itself started to reboot for no apparent reason. I decided to live with this also. However, about at this point, I found it weird that no matter what I did, I could not get the unit to turn off without removing the key from the ignition (holding the left knob down for 4 seconds, which I think used to turn it off, did nothing, neither did any other key combination I could think of). However, at the time, all I had to do if Android was buggy was turn the ignition off and on at a stop light to get the unit to reset, so I kept going on with life and ignored the annoyances.

A few months later, I left on business for 5 days and had to leave my car parked at the airport. My car is black and has a black interior so it does get hot. When I returned to use my car, the Android side refused to boot (i.e. it shows nothing on the screen, just black). I only refer to parking at the airport because this is the only thing that I can think of that changed between it working and not, however I have a Valentine One/Cheetah/Blinder combo in my car and nothing ever happens to them when left out in the hot car.

Now, this happened about 2 months ago and I have tried pretty much everything that I could find on all of the forums. The first thing that I did was take the original 2GB SD and load the stock firmware onto it from the Dynavin website. Since my unit is not booting, as expected, this did nothing. Next I thought that maybe the wireless dongle at the back is preventing the unit from booting. So I took the unit back to the installer and asked him to remove the dongle and place a USB extension cable to the unit so that I could plug and unplug the wireless dongle before the unit boots up (as M3Evolution recommends). I tried every combination under the sun to get the unit to boot: with the stock firmware SD/without, with the wifi/without even with and without the SD for the "radio side" of the unit and nothing worked.

Now I know that you are supposed to turn the unit off and back on with the ignition in the car, but as I mentioned before, one of the things that stopped working right from the start was the ability to turn off the machine with the left knob. So, I decided to go on a crusade to use the remote to turn on and off the unit. Since I received the remote without a battery (no idea why) and the battery, CR2025, for the unit is very elusive and I couldn't find one in my country (only CR2016/32), I had to order one from China on ebay. After waiting forever for the batter to arrive, I put it into the remote and... nothing. Not volume, not power, not next track... nothing. I took the remote apart to try to see if it was damaged and tested it with a voltmeter to see if there was a PD drop across the LED when I push a button and I think it is working fine. So, it seems that my Dynavin unit is also not responding to the remote control (however I do not know if it ever did because I did not have a batter for the remote when the unit was newly installed).

I had completely given up on the unit and was about to throw in the towel (and order a Zenec head unit locally) when 2 weeks ago I was driving non-stop for about 2 hours and I accidentally hit the Navi button on the unit and, lo and behold, there was my Android screen sitting there (not formatted back to stock or anything which means that the SD with stock firmware had never been restored even if the screen was perpetually black). The Android side was exactly as I had left it with all of my apps installed and my shortcuts on the dash, however some of the settings has been lost. I played around with the unit for a while and it worked perfectly apart from Wifi not working at all. So i decided to disconnect the wifi dongle completely and use the unit entirely "offline", it was better than nothing. For a few weeks, the unit worked sometimes. I mean, sometimes I got in the car and android booted right away, sometimes it took 10 minutes with a black screen and then all of a sudden Android would boot, and sometimes I drove for an hour with a black screen and nothing.

Even though this was piss poor (an offline Android Dynavin that works depending on its mood/the day of the week/the weather) I decided to live with it because the alternative of dismantling the unit, taping up the gaping hole in my dash while I send the unit back to the States and waiting for a replacement, having to release it from customs and paying for the dismantle and the reinstall was much, much worse.

However, alas, even this did not last and my Android side of the Dynavin has committed suicide again and for the last 3 days I am navi-less. Since I am traveling to the states next week for a month, I have decided that if I can't fix the unit before I leave, I will have it dismantled and will bring it with me and hopefully have my dealer replace it with a new one before i leave again and can bring it back with me. That way I will not have to live for a month with a hole in my dash where my Dynavin used to be.

I have a few questions:

1. Is my unit defective?
2. If not, is there any way to turn it off except holding the left knob down for 4 seconds or using the remote (neither of which work).
3. Is there anything else that I can do to try to get this thing to work?
3. Are the A3 D99 Androids less stable/have worse hardware than the BMW ones that seem not to have these problems?

I really, really wanted to love this unit with all of its flaws. It looks great in the dash, the online feature is amazing, and I enjoyed the unit for the first 2 months before the problems started. However, this saga has been really testing, despite being optimistic that I can somehow fix the unit if only I did this or that to get it working. Now, i am quite tech savvy so if there is anything that I can do (short of dismantling my dash) I'm pretty sure I can follow the instructions.

Please, please, please help me. I am on the verge of desperation.

Well you put up with more than most...

Yes it is defective, probably a bad power supply causing havoc. Contact your dealer and good luck!

Hi Jeff,

Unfortunately, this didn't resolve the problem.

In short, I tried:

1. Stock ROM with original wifi dongle with no USB extension
2. Rooted ROM (M3Evolution's) with original wifi dongle with no USB extension
3. Stock ROM with original wifi dongle with USB extension
4. Rooted ROM with original wifi dongle with USB extension

And then all 4 attempts again with a Belkin wifi dongle instead of the original wifi dongle.

In all 8 cases, the wifi never worked. It turns on for 10 seconds and then turns off. Again, only once did I ever get the wifi working long enough to download Sygic (1GB with maps) (this was WITH a USB extension and original wifi dongle). It's never worked again.

And now, for some strange reason (this is the first time this has happened), whenever I try and re-install a ROM, the Android side won't boot up. The update works (reading and then writing to 100% with the reboot message) but when I reboot, black screen. This has happened in the past a couple times but the blank reboot would only occur once. The second ROM install would work. Now, after 5 ROM installs (both stock and rooted), the Android device won't boot up.

I too am on my last legs with this unit. The wifi and Android aspects of the device is one of the few reasons I bought this unit. Neither seem to work reliably. I'm going to assume that if I keep trying to install a ROM, I'll finally be able to boot Android (feels like Windows, try the same thing 19 times and it doesn't work and then try the same thing again a 20th time and it suddenly decides to work).
However, the unreliable wifi has ALWAYS been a problem.

If Dynavin really did care about its customer base, I would think they would have, by now, provided a more recent version of Android (Gingerbread?). A version that could still run on the limited hardware but one that doesn't have wifi bugs. Unfortunately, from what I can tell, the latest Dynavin ROM is from last December and we haven't heard anything since.

I truly would like to have this unit work as intended as I'm really keen on having a properly functioning Android+wifi unit but I'm starting to lose hope at this point. From everything I've read, a slightly new version of Android could potentially fix a lot of these bugs but that unfortunately doesn't seem to be on Dynavin's roadmap so for the moment, I'm stuck with what is in my eyes a flawed product. I guess others have had luck with the wifi feature though. I just haven't.

you dont have a wifi "bug" you have a broken unit....talk to your dealer, the USB cable coming out of the back of the unit is either damaged or partially unplugged from the main board. Some of you guys are going WAY too far with this wifi stuff.....in my experience (and Ive seen thousands of units) the wifi works, if it doesnt its either settings or the hotspot being incompatible (or security settings). Reloading the ROM restores the settings to their defaults and it should work, trying multiple hotspots rules out the hotspot as the source of the issue, if after that you still have issues then you need to contact your dealer because something is wrong.

The "bug" in android 2.2 is more of an intermittent disconnect or inability to connect on the first try....something you would see only occasionally, not something that would be there every time.

Ok, fair enough. However, shipping the unit back for a replacement unit will probably cost me over $200 in shipping, all because Dynavin couldn't get it right the first time? And with my side clips broken off because of yet another defect, I'm not sure they'll accept it at all. And although I'm getting ahead of myself, if that doesn't fix the issue, where should I stop? Spend $200 every time?
I'll contact my vendor and see what they have to say. This should be fun.

Edit: Email sent. We'll see what they say.

defectives happen, shipping damage happens, its a fact of life. And if you buy from another country and ship things in, there is a certain amount of risk that you take on. When WE sell units that are going out of the country we bench test them to try to minimize the kind of issues you are having.

Although I dont know where you bought from $200 is pretty steep for shipping.....it only costs $30-$50 to send them back and forth from the US to Canada......

I've sent smaller and lighter things to the US and have had to pay more than $50. Furthermore, when it gets shipped back, we typically get dinged for brokerage, duties, taxes, even though we shouldn't as it's a warrantied item. Unfortunately, they (the companies, including Canada Post) don't seem to give a damn about that and tell you to pay the fee on the spot if you want your parcel and then fight the charges which can then take months with no guarantee of success. Yup, it's what us Canadians constantly have to deal with when buying from the USA. It sucks but it's something we have to live with. Anyway, before I get too far into this, I'm going to wait to see what the vendor responds to my warranty request.

thats not good....you need to make sure your dealer marks it as a warranty repair.....the few times ive done it I have not had an issue....but you would probably know better than me when it comes to that. Good luck, hope your dealer makes it simple.

Dynavin changed the touchscreens on the last production batch and with that change came new touchscreen drivers. So if you have a unit that was manufactured before July/2012, use the old ROM, after July/2012, use the new ROM.

You can tell which one you have by looking at the source selection screen (thats why dynavin has pics of each next to the download link). Im going to contact them to help them make that page more clear.....

If you update and your touchscreen doesnt work, you used the wrong one.
