Default Obioban's Avin Avant 3 thread (eventually DIY to delete all stereo modules/harness)

Looks great!

I can't wait to get mine. The screen on my Avant 2 went out, so I emailed Tommy and he gave me a nice discount toward an Avant 3. I finally bit the bullet and got it.

They're on backorder now, apparently waiting on new stock of "V2.0" that should fix the audio issues some people were having. At the beginning of the month he told me they were expecting them in three to four weeks, so they should be shipping out soon.

Since all the processing is done on the phone, everything is smooth/reliable/fast.
Thanks for this follow up and the review! Seems like a straightforward install that I'll enjoy once the V2.0 comes off of backorder.

It seems like the technology to support wireless CarPlay is proven (i.e. Apple TV, ChromeCast, etc...); I remain hopeful that this functionality isn't being withheld from a legal/liability concern.

Did you have to bypass any interlocks on the Avin unit?

Very Respectfully,
Longley

Do you still use YaV1 with carplay open? How does that work, if at all?

Had it in a pioneer unit two years back and disliked how buggy and slow it was.

You have files on your phone or do you have a DSP (Apple Music / Spotify)
I've never had anything but miserable experiences with Pioneer.

Eh the unit was fine. The CarPlay was terrible. Made me hate it. Iíve used it now in four different cars and it seems to work great.

I will option this on my Avin.

One option I donít understand is he IBus unit. Can someone explain the benefit. Sorry to be the newb adding a thread within a thread.

The Avant 2 had a dedicated 30 pin iPod cable. I know the Avant 3 doesn't have one, but is it able to play music from an iPod through USB? I've got an iPod video that I put a 250 GB solid state drive into and I'd love to be able to keep my iPod with my entire music library in the glovebox and be able to control things through the head unit.

They say on their site that it supports iPod libraries, but I haven't checked. I can check with any iPod touch I used to use (bought because of the SSD for car use) at some point/

Maybe they changed the site, but I don't see mention of iPod capabilities anywhere on the Avant 3 page.

I'm interested to hear if it works though.

I just got my Avant yesterday, so I got it hooked up and plugged an iPod in with a USB cable. The iPod goes to the "Do not disconnect" screen like it does when it's plugged into a computer, but the Avin doesn't react. I tried opening any apps that might be related but didn't have any luck finding anything that plays files from the iPod.

Maybe I'll do some digging around and see if I can install an app that will communicate with it, but it doesn't seem like the Avin has any iPod compatibility out of the box.

Why not just throw in a microsd with the music you want and call it a day?
