Turn by Turn

Can anyone tell me how to get back to Turn by Turn navigation? I used to have the option but now when I enter a route it sets me a straight line, "As the Crow Flies". Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Got my D99+ delivered this past week and finally had a chance to get her put in today. My previous set-up was the 4:3 nav, so it threw me for a bit of a loop when I realized the Fakra cable had square pins when I needed round. Oops... Guess I should've researched a little more.

No matter - as splicing the Fakra wires to the standard radio adapter was easy. Does anyone know if there are any adverse effects for doing it this way? I haven't noticed anything yet - everything booted beautifully - but I haven't really had a chance to sit down and hash out any bugs or annoying nuances.

Oh, and Jeff - thank you so much for the awesome service! Much appreciated!

Yes, you handled the fakra cable plug correctly. if your car has the wrong plug, swap them.

Hi everyone,newbie to the forum

As this is the most comprehensive dynavin thread on the interwebs i need to ask about some issues i have.

1. clock on windows side sometimes resets itself,could this be to low voltage from alternator?
2. Updating the Android side,screen is flickering and takes forever to update.
3. Android suddenly died/didnt start.been like this for three months thats why i have tried updating it.

any ideas how to fix these issues except setting it on fire?

dealer here in norway isnt too happy speaking with me regarding this unit.(think they knew it would have problems)

btw its a D99 installed in a E39

Cheers
Geir

OK after doing the research and asking a few questions, I just placed my order for the D99+ WinCE model, HVAC relocation kit, and the reverse camera on Jeff's website (thanks Jeff! please email the tracking number once you have it, order 2222).

I have one final question, but it's a minor one. Since I went ahead and opted for the reverse camera, what routing has everyone been using from the head unit to the trunk? Along the headliner, door sills, down the middle of the car under the console? I googled for several hours last night and didn't find anything. Just wondering if one is easier than the other. My guess is that the door sills would be the way to go.

Thanks
Tracy

I just got my dynavin with rear camera and accessories this week and the rear camera instructions show you the wiring path which is along the door sill. That's probably how i'll hook mine up. Except i'm most likely running my wires through the passanger side glove box to the door sills (the instructions go along the drivers side).

The wiring I used took the following path>

Back of Dynavin > behind glove box > tucked behind passenger door trim down to plastic step trim at bottom of door > underneath step trim to C pillar trim edge (it's the trim split at the same leve as the step sills) > underneath rear passenger step sill > underneath rear base seat cushion (it pops right out) > through the base or the split seat opening to trunk > behind trunk liner side trim > up through elephant trunk wire tube > trunk lid > trunk license plate light lip (need to unscrew it and remove to get cables through).

Wow.. Dynavin definitely looks like it's come a long way from my D90... might have to update.

Jeff,
I installed the Dynavin today and it was working perfectly. I turned it off and on a few times and now it won't turn on at all. I checked the fuse and it looks fine. Thoughts?

Ordered my Dynavin from Jeff last week. Installed it today and everything works perfectly right out of the box. I will say that the manual that comes with the head unit is basically worthless. This thread and Jeff's tutorials were much more helpful.

So I'm having some trouble with the bluetooth audio skip feature. Skip on the dynavin and steering wheel works in every other radio side application except bluetooth. Anyone have any idea?

Had the same problem. Just delete the pairing from the Dynavin and phone, then pair again. Should hopefully fix it.

Awesome, thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try tomorrow and see how it works.

BTW, Jeff... are the USB wifi dongles that are included in Android orders from you tested at all? I'm having issues connecting to a wifi hotspot. It will show "connecting", "searching", "connecting", but never end up establishing a connection with my phone's hotspot. I've tried re-flashing to no avail, so I'm thinking I might be having an issue with the usb dongle. Are those provided directly from Dynavin?

Thanks for the help!

Once again, I had that issue, and still do. What are you using as a wifi hotspot? While the wifi can be finicky about connecting, I noticed that it seems like my iPhone 5 with AT&T is the culprit. A turn off/turn on of android Wifi along with a reboot of the phone seems to allow for a connection.

Well jw, if tomorrow morning comes and both these issues are fixed, you will be my personal hero! Thanks for the tips!

I received the Igo Primo GPS module for my Dynavin D99+ today. The module was the basic SW verson for a cost of $99. I immediately downloaded and upgraded it with the North American POI and North American Major Cities 3D Building add-ons ($22) for a total of ~$122. My D99+ was one of the earlier ones that came shipped with Sygic GPS module (~Oct 2012), later ones now come shipped with the Igo Primo.

Update of the software from the Sygic to the Igo Primo was easy and straight forward. First you remove the Micro SD card on the left side under the volume knob, and then insert the new Micro SD card. Power up the unit and press the Navi button. The unit will then display an error indicating it can not find the Nav SW files. The screen then allows you to browse to the Micro SD card file structure and load the Igo Primo.exe file. From there it only takes a few seconds and it ready for setup.

You are lead through a few series of setup screens, and that's it, its ready to go. From there I then powered off the system, ejected the Micro SD card and plugged it into my PC to update it with the newly acquired software. Note, it is necessary to install the Micro SD card into the D99 unit one time before the updates can be installed, this is so it can register the unit on the memory card.

From there the Naviextras Tool box is really intuitive and simple to use. Once logged in you can browse all the latest maps and updates for the Igo Primo in the Tool Box window. Updates are purchased and downloaded to the memory card all from the tool box. I have a Garmin Nuvi standalone GPS unit and it's not a slick as this interface. When all the updates have been applied to the memory card, you simply plug it back into the Dynavin units slot, power up and run the same set up screen again, viola! She done!

So I haven't had a chance to really use it yet, but already I can tell this is a much better interface than the Sygic SW it replaces.... In fact, in just navigating it's user menus, it feels light years ahead of the Sygic, and seems much simpler and easier to use. This is very welcomed as it allows a person to focus on driving rather than fumbling with the interface. The search menu seems very quick and easy to use, as does all the other menu items. In all I feel this is a worthwhile upgrade over the Sygic system, and I look forward to it use. Thanks to Jeff at J and T Distributing for getting this SW update to me with all the required support.

Downloading the updates and extras on Naviextras Tool Box


The Micro SD card and adapter, ready for the upgrade


The memory card inserts just under the left knob


Press the Nav button once and this error is displayed until the file path is chosen


Once chosen, the update takes less than 10 seconds to load


Here is the 2D Street view zoomed out, in night mode


Set up screen for the GPS


The search menu while retaining a windowed 3D map view


The POI menu showing nearby restaurants


That's all today folks....

Glad you are enjoying iGo Primo but one thing you didnt point out that is pretty important for future readers of this thread.....you had to BUY the program/maps for $99+/-......and then you added the upgrades from naviextras.com for $22. I want to make sure everyone reading this in the future understands the costs associated with what you did.

A little background for you readers out there, We recently started including licensed iGo Primo Navigation Program with the Dynavin units we sell, "ViperZ" has a previous unit that came with "Sygic Drive" Navigation Program and bought iGo Primo to replace it.

This version of iGo Primo works on Dynavin D95, D99, and D99+ units ONLY.
