pretty sure iqnavi does support displaying the parking sensors. They show it in one of their demo videos.

I have iqnavi on my unit, but no parking sensors, so I can't confirm if this works or not.

I connected the ground wire to the head unit side connector. What got me confused is the blue/white wire that you said to connect to the AMP-CON wire. That wire leads to the Canbus Decoder module. The part I'm stuck with is the blue/red wire. I tried testing to connect it to the factory harness red/white wire but nothing happened. I'm not comfortable with cutting into the factory harness so I tried to just stick the wire in. That didn't work but I noticed a white/red wire in the same factory harness. I tried sticking the 12v to 6v blue/red wire in there too but that didn't work as well. I'm pretty stuck.
@Hisma, @chutoyy, @Donkey Grundle, @Interlukens 1. Please help!
someone managed to get backup cam working on manual transmission and I think he posted his results somewhere. Wasn't me, unfortunately, so I can't help. Sorry.

Q: Can this device be used in the car to play audio

A:
I just tested my 7-Port Alloyseed device in my 2014 Mazda 6, and when one (1) USB Drive was plugged in, it played just fine, however I got a USB Read Error when I added a second USB Drive. I brought this unit for my 4K Sony Android TV, and it works with multiple items installed. SO, if your head unit it a Smart Unit (like one powered by Android), and can see Multiple drives / devices, this should work very well.

Love to know IF this can be done. Peace!
Yes it should. You have to see the power requirements of the device you are powering to be sure though. USB 2.0 (which is in these HUs) maxes out at 500mA. So you cannot plug in devices that draw any more than that. A standard thumb drive wouldn't have anything to worry about.

Brilliant, thanks for that! I'm keen for my unit to turn up.

The Tomtom GO app works perfectly if anyone wants to know.

Parking sensors display for front and rear plus the actual sensor that is going off.

Anyone having issues with the back-up camera feed cutting out? I have a 6-speed so the seller had rewired the adapter to ensure the camera was functional. The feed always comes on when I go into reverse but when I start turning my steering wheel, the feed cuts out and comes back. I have checked my connections over and over and I can't seem to figure it out.

Mine has gone black a couple of times but not in the middle of using it.

As I said I experimented w/ placing the GPS in various locations. The HU comes w/ an app that tells you how strong your GPS signal is. I get best signal and fastest lock placing my GPS at the center of my windshield next to my rearview mirror. So when you go to mount your external mic I'd run the GPS along with it.
I mounted the GPS in the same location but find it takes very long time to get a lock and often loses the lock throughout the trip. My Tomtom unit in the car locks MUCH faster and never loses lock.

I checked the connection last night and all good

Anyone else have weak GPS signal issues?

With this being over a 12 month old post, does anyone know of a head unit similar to this but with a better spec?
