FG MK 1, 2, FGX, BA/BF and Territory replacement ICC

Recommended Posts

Bit the bullet - will be dropping in tomorrow to grab the MK II screen fitted.

 

What launcher do you guys prefer?

 

Inbuilt one or something different?

Apple Airplay/Android Auto or something different?

 

How's the handsfree mic? Clear and hidden?

what was wrong with it broken? 
Yeah the front was all hammered where they dug it out with a screw driver and the rear screw posts were cracked where some 100kg gorilla had swung off the screws and over tightened them. I don't reckon it's even hold screws in it!

Not good - had only heard good things about ASL.

 

Maybe post a pic or 2 up on their social media pages asking if that's normal could trigger a response from them?

It uses the factory microphone and also has one built in on the top left of the screen. Works fine.

 

I use the agama interface and android auto. You could just use the phone mirroring app as well.

I use waze, spotify and tunein frequently.

Cheers - was my only real concern heading in now that the reverse camera is sorted.

 

Am tipping I'll be having a bit of a play tomorrow :)

 

Any concerns or negatives at all?

Just back from getting the screen put in.

 

Extremely happy I got James to install it for me - he took a bit over an hour, but I would have taken the weekend, swore a lot and probably still had issues.

 

Haven't had a chance to play yet, but was really good being able to use TomTom GPS on the way home on the screen itself rather than need the phone.

 

Hope to get the OBDII, Harry's Lap timer, GoPro, Torque and a few other items up and running shortly.

 

Only gripe so far is the screen seems a little dim - will have a play and see if there's a way to get it brighter.

Worth also noting - they can do units now for BA/BF and territories - will update the title to reflect that.

 

Would be an absolutely brilliant way to bring a bit of life to the BA/BF console :)

My console is as basic as they come. A touch screen would certainly bring some new car feel back to the interior.

Got most installed now - am stuck trying to get the OBDII dongle to pair (OBDLink MX Bluetooth)

Pairs fine with the phone, but the car can't see it :(

 

Also - Netflix app isn't available for the unit :( Will have to use the browser.

someone needs to make something like the new fascia kit that's come out for the VE, because the one currently looks like arse

hmm, now to justify $900 to have phone-specific features other than audio on my ICC instead of chucking in the HU out of my old car (free)...

Dude you buy $60 steaks for dinner, you don't need any justification to waste money on your car :laughing:

Yep, I have the same poxy one... but I don't care about the 6-stacker-CD and colour screen BS that the "upgraded" one did, in that model, so it's not poxy to me, specifically, so I don't mind keeping it and chucking my HU in like I did in the last car.

 

$900 buys a lot of $60 steaks... it doesn't buy me much in terms of actually used functionality... :idunno:

fair dinkum. Only some quality cuts of steak are in that half of cow, too :P

 

The HU is not amazing in terms of looks, but had all of the options to go to two amps, one for my sub and one for my speakers and enough customizability to make my music super loud and clear - it suited a purpose. https://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/topic/80918-what-did-you-do-to-your-car-today/?do=findComment&comment=1643896

Just looked at their facebook page. Geez they move a lot of units - looks like well over 700 allready for the FG, and then look how many other vehicles they supply for.

I am going to guess at most a couple hundred dollars in parts for each kit, buying in bulk maybe much cheaper.

that's a lot of money, more than most workshops and car audio places would be making.

Genius level business skills here!

The thing is the kit is actually really good and they provide good support.

Yep, once they'd sorted out the tooling to make the facscia's, then tooled up the equipment and/or purchasing, you'd expect it to be a good little earner. Good on 'em. I've seen heaps (not really heaps, but you get the idea) of people over the years attempt to make their own fascia's out of fibreglass or something like that and they never end up looking as slick as these have come out.

He said yesterday that the MKII unit came about due to Autobahn?? ordering 70 units, so he's doing something right.

 

From what I can gather the units are Allwinner T3 head units with DVD (at least the MKII one is) - similar seem to be about $US300+ on Alliexpress and probably don't need the customisation the Aussie Ford ones do, so it's pretty impressive AFAIK.

 

I was following ASL Media for ages, hoping they'd bring out an upgrade, but nothing came out for the FG II's (they said it wasn't possible)

 

Never looked at upgrading my audio system due to the limits of the ICC, but the new inbuilt amp and RCA outs will mean I'll have another expense in the future :S

 

To me, the BA/BF system seems to be a no brainer - adds GPS, reverse cam, bluetooth, phone connections, multimedia etc - no more getting into mums new Corolla and being jealous of her infotainment unit :P

 

(I'm honestly not on the payroll for them lol) 

 

edit: connects fine to my dashcams, will try the GoPros if I get a chance today. Will try some other launchers too - nothing wrong with the one that comes with it, but customisation options are calling. Still struggling getting the OBDLink MX unit to work - seems to have compatibility issues with some BT modules - have ordered an ELM327 to try.

It's weird that their main website (kayhan) doesn't have a huge writeup on the "cool features" you get... just the store, basically... cbf going over all of their FB posts to find this information out. Surely they should have some sort of PDF, at minimum, that explains their product's features attached to every single item in their store...

The website is a bit turkled. There aren't any options to purchase accessories apart from on the link you provided. If you click on the accessories link it just redirects back to the unit.
