Got this as our wedding gift 8 years ago. Still going strong - only ever needs a cleaning cycle (we just use eBay bicarb tablets) when the...

A good list - but I’d say add to the list: - an LED head torch - a second (old) 4G-capable phone with an Aldi $5 SIM card that will have...

By the way I did email the retailer about this hidden feature, he said while they/manufacturer don’t support the feature, he said “yep...

Waze is bloody brilliant on this unit. So is Google Maps. It’s only on short trips sometimes when either my wife and/or myself don’t...

Yeah it’s a very affordable solution. My feedback so far after weeks of using this unit ... if you’re strictly using CarPlay (I assume...

YOU ... ARE ... KIDDING ME! 😁 I don't use Android phones regularly anymore, but this is AWESOME! Thanks buddy ...

The sheers no of responses on this topic, confirms to me I’m not the only one frustrated by this - not so much these days as we tend to...

Forgot to answer your question about the USB connection - yes it’s internal/from back of unit - 2 USB’s in fact - 1 for CarPlay, the...

Here’s an install video for this Axis unit on an ASX! https://youtu.be/GrGjNuaCECE And Kenwood explaining the steering wheel control...
29/12/2020 - 19:01
Well I for one am hoping the “Axis Japan” branding means something nowadays because I sure can’t fault the GUI on this unit, which I...

In terms of retaining steering button control, yes it should be a simple case of patching the head unit’s Key 1 and Key 2 and Remote...

In terms of fit for yr ASX - I would imagine if your ASX unit is a double DIN, it should be a fairly straightforward replacement, with the...
29/12/2020 - 14:48
Possibly. But based on the major car audio retailers stocking this brand and this particular model at a middling price, and my own...

Not that I could see ie. no such icon in my installed unit ...

Mate, a very helpful suggestion. I shall get the belt replaced next service which is coming up.
20/10/2020 - 12:14
Further to my comment yesterday, yes the consumer has a responsibility to step in the shoes of the service provider, especially if they're...

One observation I make from the comments here and from my own experience, it appears the 80's and 90's days of "all mechanics being crooks"...

This is real conundrum. But on balance, if I was in this situation again (more below ...) I would take whatever option was safest at that...
