I'm looking for a manufacturer that offers software updates to its infotainment systems. What brings me here and to ask this question. In November of 2017 I purchased a Nissan Maxima. My salesperson was good but not very knowledgeable when it came to the stereo. The car clearly stated it had Apple Play but I don't mess with Apple products so I asked him if it also did Android Auto. At first he wasn't sure but then came back confident that it did. It was a late night purchase and a process that took longer than it should've and so there were things that I still needed to do the following day, like pick up my SD card for the navigation. Long story short, it was over a week before I got around to testing out the Android Auto features and found out that it was not part of the car. Come to find out, the 2017 only had Apply Car Play and the 2018 would have the Android Auto which was already out, just not at the location that I purchased. I figured it should be no big deal, it's just software. The new infotainment system is similar to the one I had except for the Android Auto. They should be able to do a software update. I'd purchase the new map (which was already out of date) and get the update to enable/install Android Auto on my unit. Apparently, this isn't possible. They expect you to buy a new car to get the new technology on your radio. Who does that? Not I. And because they can't make this happen, this long-time Nissan Owner (25yrs) will never buy another Nissan. I will entertain a manufacturer that could accommodate such a small request. I was even willing to pay (a small, reasonable amount) for the feature.
I just got a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T SE, and so far I've had no problems with the car itself. When I have the radio playing, there isn't any problems with it, but when I have my phone plugged into the aux cord, the bass sounds really bad. I've tried everything to get this to go away. It sounds really scratchy and if I have the volume turned up loud, it sounds worse. I've tried turning the bass down on my car and it doesnt change anything. This is only when I have my phone plugged into the aux cord. Can someone tell me what's wrong with it?
Hey guys, I am not a regular here or anything but would really appreciate some information. Car: 1998 Chevy Malibu My stereo was literally ripped out of my console and stolen ( broken window and all,anyway.. ), and the brackets where the potential new stereo would screw into it have been compromised and completely broken. My question: How do I replace these? Is the replacement pretty much the entire console? or I there an affordable fix? I have no idea what t even look up on google to find the parts Pictures Below! Looking forward to some helpful replies ,Thanks! - Andrew
