Received my CarBotics 4x64 two days ago. Setup was straight "out of the box" (setup guide can be downloaded from here).

I have just one complain: To do the complete setup with all programs I try to install I have to sit a very long time in my car. Here is my question: Does anybody know about a way to connect CarBotics to a PC running an emulator? - comments from CarBotics developers are welcome -  This way we are able to setup our new car gadget at home in a comfy environment and not in the cold car outside. Any tips and tricks are welcome.

Bye for now  Fred

Hello Fred, thanks for confirming that you received your unit and that everything is working fine. 

We'll ask our programmers how to connect to PC to do emulation. Have you tried connecting to computer using Mirroid?

Thanks again!

Hi Roxy,

tried it on different ways (Mirroid, Android emulator,...). I suppose it's a driver problem. Any tip, trick, download link is welcome 🙂

Bye for now  Fred

Let's make sure to update this list. We'll pass it on to our programmers after the holidays.

Thanks!

Some wishes which - maybe - can't be realized. Nevertheless I'd like to see them implemented:

- Make "display size" adjustable for programs individually. Reason: Some programs don't display fully when screen size is set to standard and you can't reach some buttons...
- Some car screens don't work proper because CarBotics doesn't detect the screen size correct. To alter this by implementing a program like "Easy DPI Changer" can help.
- Because any program for listening radio broadcast don't work as good as my integrated receiver running DAB+ it's disturbing when navigation programs grab the sound output and don't switch back to the integrated radio. Because it might be impossible to grab the sound just for the message and then switch back I'll be satisfied with the possibility to just tell CarBotics NOT to switch sound for some programs. So I can watch the screen (without tone) and can listen to an uninterrupted DAB+ broadcast at the same time.
- Users should be able to hide the unlocked bootloader for some programs, because some of them don't run with this setup (see message from @radeon79).

Regarding the forum I'd like to have a setting to default to English when loging in. Usually the forum software determines that I'm used to German and switches automatically, I have to reset back to English every time.
Next complain: I can't modify my user profile. Any attempt to change isn't stored. Sure that can be fixed 🙂

Bye for now  Fred

Regarding edited your forum profile, I was able to do so last week... I am using an Opera browser. Can you try using a different browser?

Tried Opera, Firefox, Edge. All with the same result (see attachment). It's no big deal, just mentioned 😉 .
