Does anyone run Harry's Lap Timer on it? Does it work?

Got my box today. Wondering what the unterminated wires labeled Key-1 and Reverse+12V are on the harness adapter.

Wish documentation was a bit better.

Don't worry about them. The avant 4 gets those signals from the CAN-bus box.

I run HLT on Avant-3 so I imagine it can run on Avant-4...

The issue is that there is no IMU (gyro or accel) in the Avant unit so basically the only data HLT take in is GPS and can read BT OBD-II dongles so its not that great... As a result I bought a RaceCapture/Track as it has an integrated IMU and it can connect to HLT... but then by the time you do that like me you may as well just run straight through the RaceCapture App...

So in the long version... I imagine you can run HLT as it works on Avant-3... but it needs lots of other inputs to be useful I believe and by the time you set them up you don't really need HLT haha

Well, just cursed my way through the install. Holy hell the lack of documentation is annoying for those who are complete car audio amateurs. Has anyone here installed the wireless backup camera? I ran out of daylight, but have the received powered and in the dash - it is as simple as running power and installing in the trunk lid, or am I missing something?

A guy over at E46Fanatics made a great guide for installing an Avant-2 as well as a wired front facing camera and backup camera... sure you have a wireless backup camera and an Avant-4 but most of these guides will still be directly transferable...

I always lose the link to the guides so I threw them on my Google Drive a while back. Here's a link and these should help you out:

Much appreciated! Will leverage this for the upcoming round 2 this weekend.

Has anyone had a problem with oil temp not displaying through iBus? Of course it's the one function I really want, and it's not working
