When I plug in my iPhone into the cable at my center consol nothing happens. Do i need to launch an android appp? Or is it possible the iPhone cable is just to long or not of good quality? Or was the dongle suppose to be plugged into the red or yellow usb at the back of the headunit?
There's an app (I think called autoplay) you have to install to use the dongle. Once you have it installed, you can set the app to automatically launch when you connect the phone.

Will this unit autoplay a music app, such as Spotify, via BT audio on startup?

From what I've been able to tell, no. Mine and apparently everyone else's unit autoplays the radio on startup and there doesn't seem to be a way to change that. It's annoying.

When using waze through CarPlay does it give audio directions if you’re listening to the built in radio?

I've never tried, as I'm never listening to radio

You can disable the radio app in the android settings menu. Now my A4 defaults to the last app played. It doesn't start my music player (rocket player) but it launches it at least.

How exactly do I get to this menu, and what exactly is the option called? I feel like I've gone through everything several times and have not been able to find anything that does this. Even Avin themselves have failed to acknowledge that this option exists. Would be very grateful to know

Wow, even the shittiest modern headunits have this function.

At least on my A3, it never launches the radio on car startup...

My A3 does and I'd be annoyed if it didn't. But then again FM radio is the only thing I listen to since my Sirius antenna started being more useless than good.

What are people using for backup cameras with these things? I definitely want to add that in the wagon, since I have no PDC and the rear view mirror tends to be useless when I have 4 giant dogs in the back.
