S3 8P RNSE with BOSE to Android head unit

Post by Jet Li » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:31 am

Greetings!

I have upgraded from the original RNSE radio to Android unit and need help on few things.

1. Power related - the android unit switches on/off with the ignition and need help on how to run it without the ignition.

2. BOSE/Subwoofer related - all speakers play and I can hardly hear the subwoofer. There is sound from the subwoofer but its very low to notice. Had to put my hand on it to feel the vibrations. Is there anyway to maintain the same subwoofer's sound quality as with the original headunit?

Otherwise Android is a noticeable improvement from the depressing OEM RNSE. Thanx

Sorry for late reply.

Bought it on the forum for 3k and its a great unit with Wi-fi and 3g modem. No reverse camera yet, still looking though. Its worth every cent and I intend to change all my radios with Android units as soon as I can afford them. I hope that answers your questions.
