I have a 2008 R32 MkV that I love, but it is basically stock and I'm looking at a replacement head unit to get telephone and music connectivity specifically over Android Auto.
I've seen posts about the gateway and battery drain, and also a few questions about microphone placement. Looking for some advise.
Firstly I have had three head units recommended to me:
- Kenwood DMX5020S (https://www.kenwood....ation/dmx5020s/)
- Alpine iLX-W650E https://www.alpine.c...vers/ilx-w650e/
- Pioneer DMH-Z5350BT https://www.pioneer....ar/dmh-z5350bt
Wondering if anyone has experience with any of these units?
The second question is broader, any tips for working out things like the gateway compat? I've tried to get to the secret menu in the existing unit, but it doesn't work, so I assume the firmware is too old. Rally looking to learn from other's experiences and not make the same mistakes over again.
Advice and suggestions are appreciated.
