I have a separate Kenwood powered amp that I plug into the front RCAs coming off the radio to supply audio input while power is direct from the battery. After my initial check I installed the powered sub, back up camera, etc. and put the dash back together. When I turned it back on I noticed the stock sub was back to it's low hum, my Kenwood was doing it's job and fade no longer worked. Plugging into those RCAs is what killed the fade and stock amp, if I remove the Kenwood I'll get those back..

I would suggest you can't run the alpine amp and and external amp at the same time. The system must know if you are running the alpine amp so it can send the fade signal to can bus instead of the conventional means. The alpine is not your standard amp. It is controlled by can bus and therefore

the head unit must handle it differently.

And if they are 4G/Wifi why would people who want Sirius XF buy a special plug in service instead of just using the internet version you could pay for as a service?

I have a 2010 JK and want a unit with the bigger screen and nav services. This sounds like a winner..despite some of the issues seen on this blog, but I just don't understand this part of it.
I use my phone as a wifi hotspot & use the siriusxm app.

BUT there are a couple issue w/ the app. 1st, it doesn't rotate so it sits sideways on the screen. to fix this, I had to go into developer options & force the app to rotate. I posted directions about it further back in this thread somewhere.

forcing rotate works fine BUT a lot of the images end up screwed up. (not all of them) I've contacted Sirius about it but for whatever reason , they aren't concerned about fixing it. video works fine.

next issue is the app does not split screen. no biggie but letting you know.

all that being said, I'm perfectly happy w/ how it works. (issues and all) the fact that I don't need a separate subscription makes it all worth it. I have 1 everything sub for my wife's car. they gives you the net subscription which is what I use in the jeep, work, & at home.

I'm annoyed w/ also having to turn wifi hotspot on. may get one of those wifi hotspots that plugs into the ODB2 port of the jeep to simplify things.

Perhaps they are aware of a bug in the July update with the radio software that the June update doesn’t have or that might jave been introduced in the July update?

I tried the july updated but my headunit didn't see it as an update. I'm pretty sure that's what the person who posted the link to it said too.

Did you unzip the file, and place the two resulting files onto a USB stick?

yep, the june update has an update.zip file in it. I extracted that so all the files were in the root dir. that worked fine.

for the july file has an update.zip & update.img files in it. I tried extracting update.zip so all files are int he root dir & I put the update.img file in there too. it never saw anything. maybe I'll try again today because I'm still have sporadic GPS issues.

thanks

So if I am looking to buy this unit can someone advise as to what I need?
I have a 2017 JK
so looks like I need the model H201G
and I need a rear view camera. Anyone know the difference between the generic $35 one and the $70 Sony as far as performance or quality?

And I guess I need the External OBDII unit.

Don't need the USB Dongle since that is for Carplay/Iphone and I use android phones.

Don't want a DVD

so is there anything else I missed? any other connectors or antennas?

Sales are still going on so right now its $470 for all this. Seems like a deal

thanks

Dont get their cameras

Go with 12v cameras, I got 3 if these and they've been underwater during forging, one lives underneath my undercarriage and still operates at fraction of the cost

If you have the base audio system other than the camera it is practically plug and play

You'll find a firmware update a few pages back that will get you bluetooth audio, but I've never been able to get the phone to work.

I'd post a lot more if the website would quit erasing my posts when I try to add a file. Guess they don't want too much traffic.....

Anyway, for the 3rd time I'll put in here that I've ordered another Seicane 10.1. This one will go into my teardrop camper I posted a bunch of photos and write-up of the process, but it keeps getting erased....

Hey guys, new to the thread. I've gone through about 40 pages trying to find an answer to a question I have so I wouldn't repeat anyone. Just received my Seicane HU 8.0. I have a rear view camera that is connected to my rear view mirror that runs anytime the jeep is running. Is there any way to disable the screen on the HU going black every time the jeep gets put into reverse since I don't have a rear camera hooked into the HU? Thanks!

Just installed my Seicane and turned the amp off in the factory settings. I don’t have the alpine amp or sub but I do have a aftermarket amp and wakeboard speakers but it seems the sound and bass gets lowered or cuts in and out. Wondering if the pac will solve this problem. I’ve tried doing a search but with 80+ pages it’s hard to find a solution with all these updates etc

The Android head units have low voltage on the RCAs, might need a line driver

I have a LOC running to the amp rca’s since my old stock head unit needed it. Is this the same as a line driver? If I I do get the line driver would I need to hook all the speakers up to it? I’ve noticed with certain songs is when the volume lowers or if I turn it up past 20.

I agree with @trailhunter the back up cameras suck. I got the wireless one and it was a static screen in and out. I ended up running an rca cable to the unit tossing the bluetooth receiver out. Now it's pretty clear.
