OK - let's pit nicks then.

A most critical element of that legislation (which has been amended several times since originally implemented 44 years ago), includes the clarification that accepting 3rd party services and products applies to warranty service and maintenance (only) - NOT BASE COMPONENTS of a product (like the main navigational Head unit).

Changing your oil or transmission fluids by Jiffy Lube, replacing some light bulbs, or installing some side window shades would be viewed entirely different under warranty support than the most significant electronic core unit of the vehicle. There are also some monetary limits regarding acceptable 3rd party substitutions for warranty repairs in the more current regulatory updates.

This portion is key: "If your aftermarket part somehow causes or contributes to a failure in your vehicle, the dealer may be able to deny your warranty claim—as long as they can prove the connection."

The devils in the details (and regulatory updates since 1975).
If your referring to the HU...It is not that important...Every important thing it does is redundant...

Wow, I'd given up on finding an aftermarket system with HVAC control.

I think I would miss the volume knob, though.

How long have you had it? Is the startup time something you're used to now? I use waze on my phone, and half a block from the driveway it's chosen the fastest route to work. I think having to wait might be aggravating.

I don't miss the volume knob as my habit is to use the steering wheel controls for most things. I've been using it for a few months now and have very few complaints... nothing that wasn't mentioned in my original post.

I've since timed the startup using a stopwatch and consistently get 28 seconds on a cold start. I have mine set to a 10min standby for when i stop for gas or something similar and when i start the vehicle again its almost instantly on.

I prefer G Maps to Waze, but the time it takes to boot Android Auto and start navigation on either app is quite short.. routes are shown before i'm in gear and out of the driveway.

Insults

OK - knock off with the insults.
Why don't you practice what you preach about insulting people! Go back and read some of your posts mine included. You hide as you won't even take PMs as you don't want to get any blow back I suppose :frown:

Apparently some folks can't tell the difference between finding an idea bad and responding with an insult. The idea is risky and bad...you apparently chose to interpret that entirely different that what was stated, and turn it around to make it personal. Your decision...not the posts.

What about the backup camera? I would hope the video screen would be on its own circuit and could switch sources as soon as you put it in reverse. Or do you have to wait for a full system load before you can see the camera view?

Thanks

Liquid2k, Can you please post more pictures of the AC control and back up camera working?
I am really interested in completing this project myself and seems pretty straight forward!

Thank you!

So I ordered the unit and installed it with the canbus adapter and the usb dongle for Android Auto. It all works great except the USB port on the lower console. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Wow that was painful reading through all that warranty debate nonsense. My question is can you reinstall the stock head unit if there ever is a problem? That would be my solution if there was ever a problem with my vehicle that could somehow be traced back to the aftermarket install.

Hey guys, I wanted to share my successful upgrade to an android head unit in my 2015 Santa Fe Limited (with factory infinity stereo). Pictures will be added at a later time.

HW:
1. Uniway AIX459071 IPS display with 2Gb RAM, 32GB storage
(plus expandable options)

2. Uniway Android Auto / Apple Carplay dongle

SW:

1. Highly recommended that anyone installing an Android Head Unit consider purchasing "Car Launcher Pro" from the Google Play store. @ $2.99 CDN, it has every customizable feature I wanted to get things working.

2. The USB Android Auto / Carplay dongle requires software support for the app and firmware of the USB itself. The latest version of "AutoplayBox.apk"
can be found here: Download

Desired Specs:
1. Maintain factory Heat/AC controls with ability to display on head unit.
2. Android Auto / Carplay feature.
3. Maintain factory steering wheel controls.
4. Maintain factory reverse camera.
5. Maintain factory Infinity amplifier and subwoofer.

Shipping: My order arrived in Canada in approximately 7 business day via DHL. Customs fees and tax were ~$95.

Caution: The seller responds quickly to questions, however, be advised that the Aliexpress "price guarantee" is a load of crap. If you're interested in the head unit, I would suggest monitoring the price for a week or so. I've noticed a ~$100 difference in price on a day to day basis. If you ask for a refund in price difference, the seller will direct you to Aliexpress and vice versa. The seller will also threaten to discontinue support, including warranty if you file a dispute with Aliexpress over price guarantee.

Outcome:
1. Install was plug and play. Be careful that the pins do not bend as your plug in the adapters... it happens quite easily!
2. The CANBUS adapter allows the Heat/AC controls to be visible on screen (Yay for the Santa Fe Limited edition owners)
3. Reverse Camera is plug and play (still working on getting the Green/Yellow/Red lines as opposed to Orange.
4. Steering wheel controls were very easy to customize. I use the mute button as a link to the radio app and the mode button for switching back to Android Auto.
5. The factory amplifier and subwoofer work without issue. There is a setting within the EQ to adjust the power to the amplifier as well.
6. Android Auto / Carplay dongle works very well with the latest firmware. My only complaint right now is likely a SW issue or a data transfer issue... when I am using Google Maps for Navigation, if I have Spotify running at the same time, I will see a screen flicker every once in a while when I change songs and the white notification bar pops up to display the new song name. I'm confident this will no longer be a problem with the new Android Auto update coming this summer.

Quality:(Pro's and Con's)
1. The screen quality is great and using the Car Launcher Pro allows me to customize the brightness based on the ambient lighting within the vehicle.
2. Packaging was perfect upon delivery and the wiring supplied was quite self explanatory.
3. The fit/finish after installation was good. The screen fits well with the air vents (they clip right onto the new head unit).
4. My only small complaint would be the fit of the space filling storage slot (no worry if you have the separate display for Heat/AC). It installs easily, but it is not perfectly square with the edges of the dash.
5. Install modification - add a thicker gauge ground wire to the harness(s). After my initial installation I could hear a faint buzzing through the speakers without any additional noise present. The multiple harnesses used during install all splice into the same small gauge ground wire. Adding a thicker gauge wire and grounding it right to the metal frame behind the head unit solved this problem for the most part. I still hear a small amount of buzzing if its dead quiet and the amplifier power control is turned up to max.
6. USB - The head unit comes with an adapter to maintain the OEM USB1.1 control. It also adds 2 additional USB 2.0 from the rear. They are plugged in with a unique harness and converted to USB, therefor it is unable to be upgraded to USB 3.0/3.1. (use one of the rear USB 2.0 for connecting the AA/Carplay dongle for maximum data transfer speed)
7. Boot time: takes 30-40 seconds to boot to the Car Launcher home screen. There is a setting where you can put the head unit on standby for 10min, 30min, 60min, etc, which is extremely helpful if you stop quickly for gas and want it to boot instantly within the preset time frame. (There is no option for indefinite standby like some other units)


Cost:
Total cost for me was somewhere in the range of $600 CDN after shipping and Customs/Tax.

Let me know if you have any questions!
This is awesome! I think I'm ready to bite the bullet and try this out on my 2015 SFS Limited. Now that you have had the system for some months, any advice or recommendations?

H iLiquid2k, you got a great HU! Im looking for years for an aftermarket radio on my 17' XL. I contact many sellers and never got the right answers for the factory backup camera! each time it seems that they usualy use an aftermarket "gift" camera, I want my factory OEM to work with the radio. So you say that the factory camera works fine? DO you get the distance lines, the curved lines and everything or just the picture? It activate when you get in gear R? To get a video output would be amazing for my 2 headrest monitors but seems that the T8 chips cannot do video out :( usualy my 2 requests cannot be done factory backup camera + video out).

Do you need an external mic? do the tpms still works and show on the cluster?

Looks great and ignore the ones telling you about void warranty they clearly don't understand how it works In Canada at least.
Must be millions of people in troubles void they warranty since the 35 years with people replace their crappy radio for aftermarket Alpine/Pionner/.. now they get smarter (tpms,chimes,etc..) but still doesnt hold much more and doesnt compromise anything.

I had some clear coat peeling on my rims and the dealer denied the warranty claim because I had a Chinese made phone charger plugged in, and there were a couple McDonald's napkins in my glovebox. I guess @Hyundaifan0001 knows what he's talking about after all guys!
