Really appreciate the info, though very new to this and still trying to make sense out of the wiring info. Just want to make sure the instructions you provided still apply to a HuiFei Android unit like the one I purchased below. Can you confirm that it probably will?
Excellent. Appreciate the info!I have a 2015 Toyota RAV4 LE. I replaced the head unit with an aftermarket one. And also I bought canbus from the same seller. It looks like yours but it's 8" screen.
It came with all wiring interfaces and frame. Installation is very easy, just pug in and play. I have no idea how to connect Pumpkin wires.
I'll look into that. Were you also able to connect up your RAV's OEM rear camera with that harness?I have an idea. Since Pumpkin unit is all most same as mine. Why don't you just contact the seller that I bought my unit from, ask them if you can buy wiring interface with canbus for $35 from them. First you can compare the back of 2 units. I think the socks on back are also same. If you can get all connectors and canbus, you even don't need wiring interface of Pumpkin unit.
Yes, it came with all 5 connectors connect to RAV4 original plugs.I'll look into that. Were you also able to connect up your RAV's OEM rear camera with that harness?
Probably going to stay with what I have. Your unit says it doesn't ship to the US (though I think I've found others like it - Pumpkin carries but it's out of stock), and I'll never use the DVD. I also want to start this installation tomorrow.The back of 2 units are same! I have 2 suggestions: 1. return the Pumpkin unit if you still can, and buy one like mine. There are 3 reasons to return, it is 7" screen not 8", no DVD player (I don't see it in the picture), not easy to make all function to work. 2. Just buy canbus the harness from aliexpress. Total cost of mine unit was $365. $340 for unit and $25 for canbus. I told him that the price was too high and it's his job to find any available discount for me, then he found. )
No - the stepdown converter was absolutely not needed with the Pumpkin and the Rav.
