Hello everybody. I have great new and bad news (I hope only for the moment) .This week I partially installed the android headunit From AOTSR It's relatively easy to instal. 4 screws for central panel (CEM?) 2 screws for CD DRIVE BEHIND central panel and 2 screws for the dashboard.

You need to keep the 5" screen connected with the android sreen (for now it's for getting key control of the original car panel like AC and climat control)
After that the unit need aproxymatly 30 sec to boot.

The first problem is that for the moment I can't get the screen to work when when I press the volvo "MY CAR" "RADIO" "AUX" key. Seem's I need to tune the factory setting for that (if somebody know how to).

Now let's see some videos
the presentation. Be gentle it's the first video I made.

The black screen session

And all factory settings. (Thank's to alexx__93 for the factory setting code)

Let me know what you think. Towmorrow I go to tweack everything I can and make more picture about How to mount everything correctly because all alliexpress shop give only light detail without explanation on how to mount the unit and for every cabling.

Yes bluetooth work and you can change sound track with central panel, or steering wheel control.

Ac commande is beautyfully integrated. So I think it's possible to get the 5" infotainment back

Thanks for sharing this!
Did you manage to overcome black screen issue?
Are there any basic functions lost?
Eg: how do you set the clock (shown on main instrument cluster)

Hello to all volvo v40 drivers
Dear Pyro , thank you for precious details and informations you gave us. me and i believe all crew here are all ears waiting to hear news from you about adjustments.
q 1) from the store they told you that you have to connect the screens between them so you have the signal from the old one to new one right?and thats how you have signal from the a/c for example right?did you manage to find out other adjustments like my car button?
q 2) what about the cd player?you tried a cd or mp3? do you see the tracks on new screen?
q 3) is there a usb port if i well saw it? is the cable enough you have to install it somewhere for example in the armrest?
q 4)and about speakers...why it has only three audio out?and how you manage to get the power to all 4 doors speakers?
sorry for many questions i 've the kinetic my 14 with basic performance audio (no usb no rear speakers no bluetooth)thatw why im very very intrested!!!!
Thanks a lot and waiting here from you.

Hi
and sorry for the very late reply. I thing I can answer to every body in one message but It will be to long . I think

So I will reply to every com's.
Yes I managed to overcome the black screen issue . It's a setting in the "secret" menu. But I need to check before to be sur wich option it is.
After a lot's Of try I unfortunately can't get the original infotainement to show on this android screen.
You need to keep the original screen in the glove box. Or to a place you can see it to get setting.

Hello Pyro,
Could you fix problem with radio, media, and "my trip" buttons?
Yes if you push radio You go to the original fm radio 5" oem screen .
When you push aux button you can get the good quality sound of this unit (for gps, bluetooth audio, video and everything played on the androide unit Dab+ module work great too)
And when pushing My car everything goes to the 5" oem screen for ESP Setting, set time date, original audio amplifier setting.

A lot to answer but I'm here for that.

q 1) I connect everything Like they say in the instruction pdf. And yes I have signal for ac commands. like already answered My car button got to the 5" screen.
Because I didn't managed to get the video feedback to the android screen (If someone has the solution like a .ini file or configuration file for volvo)

q2)This is something I need to try .I need to buy a cd (lolà always use phone to get music in my car.

q3) Yes there is 2 usb cable from the android screen that you can connect usb stick to get mp3 or movie. Or you can put a DAB+ MODULE one usb cable.
I need to use one for the usb sound card that rout the sound of the android unit to the aux of the original car.
Cable Are long enough to got to glove box and more, I think 90cm .

q4) the schematic output given by the the alliexpress page is wrong.
They give you a usb sound card you need to connect tone usb port and the jack output go to the auxiliare input of the original car amplifier.
You will get sound on the 4 door speaker anr/or subwoofer speaker if you have one in you car. I think only oem SOUND BY AUXILIAR PORT.

And I hav the exact same audio system as you . radio fm/am and aux input, no usb

For anybody that want this in Belgium I can help for installation in Liege if needed .

But keep in mind that for the moment integration Is not perfect because we can't get the 5" screen feedback "for the moment" I hope.
I continue to hope to find a solution about that because other vendor in china can get the video on the android screen from 5" screen.
It's a missing configuration file because we get signal from ac commands so why not video ?
