Haha so am I. Once all the issues are resolved i will take it off and do a presentation at night so you can see the backlit buttons etc. & on a sunny day (if such thing exists in Wales) so you call can see the screen performance in sunlight.

Also, when you get around to doing your presentation/review, please can you take a photo of how the camera looks from the rear?

I'm keen to see if it's almost invisible to spot it when standing behind the car, so as not to spoil the "stock" look from the outside.

OK so the connects2 loom does not fit this android Radio but because I was corona-bored i decided the make 1 good loom out of the 2 that I've had because the only real difference between the two was this filter which reduces sudden inrush of current which is audible as a 'pop':



These connectors are also the same:



Which means I can just cut off the bit of the connects2 loom with the filter and connect it in place of the one on android loom:



I then crimped the ends that I needed together:



The 5th black wire was crimped together with another black ground wire on the other end of the black box not seen in pic.

Final result:


I then installed the loom back in the car and also heat shrunk all the RCA's together to stop from from ever disconnecting or touching something which would cause trouble:



Result?

The unit is now pop and noise free, all 4 channels work perfectly fine (i panned the audio to each corner of the car just fine), muting also doesn't cause the speakers to pop now.

I was promised that this radio would work with BOSE systems when I emailed Icebox before purchase which we now know it obviously doesn't, but, I'm sure some RCA filter device can be found cheap on ebay which will do the same exact thing without the need for cirmping, soldering etc.
