If you use Carplay or Android Auto usb adapter, run the app. If my adapter is looking for a wireless iPhone connection, it tries to connect and causes a glitch on the camera like yours.

Just run the app and then close it or minimize it. Your camera system app should not cut out. Remember the video recordings are not affected, only the live view through the app.

I think I figured out... it might be a power issue. Just to clarify I have no hub, just using all three usb female dongles...one is the IBUS, second is the front DVR and third is the wireless CarPlay, I unplug the wireless CarPlay dongle and everything works fine.

I think it's a power issue because in the IBUS app in the gauge screen showing my HP, water temp, oil temp and rpm, it would constantly reset; showing the needle at max every few seconds

Well on mine it was simply the app trying to connect. You could even see AutoPlay flash quickly on the upper task bar every few seconds. Once I start the AutoPlay app with or without phone it is fine. You could just set the Autoplay app to load at box insertion and it will launch when you boot the Avant-4. We are using the same devices on all 3 of our USB cables. iBus, DDVR and CarPlay however I did run the Avin RCA/USB extension from the CarPlay box to the ashtray.

Sorry that I do not know, but then remembered in the I-Bus app you could autostart an app, However, when I went to give it a bash the I-Bus app could not find the Screen Filter app Yet on my Samsung Tab S2 i-bus finds the Screen Filter app? So went to take a peek in the car and found an update for the I-Bus app after the update it found Screen Filter and it can now auto-start the app.

If you are going to do all that, why don't you just swipe down on the upper bar and select the brightness icon and dim it?

The next thing I can suggest for nleeumd is to pull the fuse But yes night setting only goes down to 20 and can be a little too light.

Stupid question, but if I have a 10 year old Kenwood navigation currently in my car, how difficult will it be to install this one on after removing the old one?

Provided nothing was hacked to fit the Kenwood, you should be able to fit this one in a few hours, however, you will lose your Garmin GPS if your Kenwood had Garmin.

No big deal all plug and play.
AND IT LOOKS LIKE A GOOD TIME TO BUY Special Price $339.99 don't waste your time with the DualDvr https://avinusa.com/dual-dvr-dashboa...-hd-video.html its rubbish.

And don't get the rear camera,its also rubbish https://avinusa.com/bmw-backup-rever...0-e91-e92.html

I also think these Avant 4 units have some built-in spyware and they like to call "home" wxlink.vipsinaapp.com? Something not right here

I was thinking maybe you should try this app

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....free&hl=en_US its free but if you like it can get the Pro Ver for about $3
