    Tried the Tesla unit Android 7.1 for a few days...

    ...and took that shit out after 3 days.

    - Audio only works through aux, which makes a hissing sound when nothing's playing.
    - Steering buttons didn't work, although I think I didn't mess with the settings enough.
    - Icons for heated seats are blue. Icons for cooled seats don't respond, they still work but you can't tell that they're on or what speed the fans are at.
    - I had problems getting warm air to blow, cool air blew fine.
    - Back up camera only works after the unit is booted, which is around 25 seconds. You can't have access to AC controls until then either.
    - Image of back up camera is shifted to the right and looked very cheap.

    Other than that the unit looks really nice and playing movies look great.

    ya i had the same problems a few days later the reverse camera stopped working. for the price losing all of those features just is not worth it to me so i removed it and waiting to send it back the guy seems kind of shady now that i requested a return.

    I bought from them too. Luckily I paid through Affirm so I just got them to negotiate my refund.

    I just got a series of emails from Affirm Friday telling me they have resolved my dispute and I didn't have to make payments. I sent tracking number of the return to Affirm and told them everything that was going on instead of dealing with the seller directly. The seller is too quiet for me.
