    Standard Roadrover Android S7112VW

    I have purchased this Roadrover model directly from Aliexpress in Sepetember 2013. They had a 15% off special recently. [Only members can see the link]

    [Only members can see the link]

    I will give you a quick summary of my experiences here and hopefully create a new thread for the exchange of thoughts and ideas. My German is not the greatest, so it is much faster for me to do it in the English forum.

    In addition to the head unit, I have also purchased and installed a rearview camera and a set of rear bumper sensors in my 2013 Passat (North American Edition)

    (1) Overall looks - very good. The screen is bright and crisp. The capacitive screen responds reasonably well to touch. The home page looks really cool. Also, the radio and Music apps look good. I have not completely figured out the automatic screen dimming. It seems to exist and work, but it may be somewhat simplified. I havenot figured out the settings yet. The lack of a light sensor complicates things here.

    (2) Radio: The reception is generally good and comparable to the original VW. The only problem I see is the somewhat aggressive noise suppression. It sometimes leads to momentary sound level drops. However, this is not not really bad. The RDS works, however it is not very well implemented in North America and I could not test it under the same conditions as what you have in Europe. RDS text letters seem a bit too small.

    (3) Sound quality - generally good. I was a little afraid of what to expect, but it is again, comparable to the original VW unit. Maybe a little better maybe a little worse. Hard to tell exactly. Similar.

    (4) DVD/CD - works. I do not really use it. I did not install the TV module.

    (5) Bluetooth - I don't like it at all! This is the weakest part of the system and I have some major issues here:
    • My microphone quality is very bad. I am waiting for a replacement. Other RR users are happy with their mics, so I am hoping the next one will work OK.
    • It does no voice dialing and provides no push button to allow for a voice dial from my iPhone
    • The phone book import works but gives me 200 entries with no ability to find the contact I need quickly. Also all extension numbers and special characters (pause, etc) get lost.
    • There are also some issues with names not showing in the last dialed lists. Have not figured it out yet. Maybe it is fixable.
    I know that some of the above problems have been reported for other android units as well.

    (6) Music control: The "Music" app (MP3s from USB or SD card) works quite well and, while not perfect, I like it. iPod control is not working for me at the moment. Possibly a faulty cable. I am getting another one sent from China.

    (7) The Android system - general comments. It runs a reduced version of Android 2.3.4. So far I don't know how to root it, which limits the options. I have installed (side loaded) some apps and they worked. Others either did not install (some system replacement files) or did not work. I did not realize there was no WiFi dongle with the unit when I was ordering it. I am now waiting for it to arrive. In the meantime, I only tested a few applications. Much more testing is required to figure out the limits of the system. I am really missing the stock "Contacts" and "Phone" apps. They do not seem compatible with the Bluetooth part. In general, the processing power is not the same as, for example, the Samsung Galaxy II phone I also have. Multitasking is not nearly as smooth.

    (8) Steering wheel controls and MFD integration: Steering wheel buttons generally work, but some of the buttons only work with the the radio and music apps installed by the unit manufacturer. For example, when using Winamp player, I can't do skip or forward with the steering wheel buttons. Volume up/down still work. No song / artist details on the MFD. Just radio frequency or Track #

    (9) System stability: I have noticed some signs of system instability. The hardware buttons stopped responding a few times. I had to turn off the car and let it sit for a while before it went away. Only happened a few times so far. I will be watching it as a potential big issue. I may have caused it during my app installation experiments.

    (10) Navigation: The unit came with iGo Primo, which I like a lot. I have installed a newer version and it works too. I have also tried Sygic and TomTom and they both worked, but I did not like them. When navigating AND listening to a radio or MP3 Music, the voice directions are not always smooth. The issue seems to depend on some settings and/or your Navi software version. Some additional experimenting will be required and may fi it.

    (11) Rearview camera and backup sensors: they both work. The cheap sensors are not extremely sensitive but work and provide a secondary layer of safety.

    After several requests for a software update, I received the following file from my sales person:
    S7112VW-A04CB3-R03-V1.2.17R1-EN.zip

    Since it seems to be the same version as what I already have on my system, I am not going to try installing it. However, if anybody is interested, I can share it. Just please understand I have not tried it and you will have to use it at your own risk. Also, right now I am not sure how to upload it, but I am sure if anybody is interested, we will find a way...

    My microphone quality is very bad.
    The internal microphone is very poor you have to replace it with an external one.
    By this, you must cut the internal connection wires
    Please ask your dealer for this microphone, as the connector is a very specific.
    The standard connectors will not fit.

    My unit does not have an internal microphone. Just external. The second microphone I received from the supplier is just a little bit better than the first one. When you speak into it form a short distance, say 30 cm, it actually sounds not bad. However, when you mount in one of the typical spots in the car, which are typically 60-90 cm away, and with the addition of the road noise, the sound quality is simply embarrassing...

    Hi 007wilk,

    Could you share the S7112VW-A04CB3-R03-V1.2.17R1-EN.zip update with me?

    My unit have the S7001TC (for universal device) software, but I would like to change it for the VW version (like nloose teach on post below), with your software to my Jetta. Now I don't have MFD working, like my old unit did.
    Also mine is older then yours S7001TC-A04CA3-R03-V1.2.14R7-EN.

    Great!
    As to the MDF - do you mean it is not working at all? Or just not displaying information from the Roadrover?
    My MFD only works partially. I get everything (I think) that is not RR related. What is being shown from the RR is not worth much. I get the radio station frequency and track number, when playing Music. Not sure, if anything else... I no longer get phone numbers, names, music titles, etc.

    Not working at all! With my old unit I could change the display to show radio station and track number, just like you said, but now it shows only car info. Nothing about RR. The right side buttons (on sterring wheel) doesn't alow me change to RR info like yours.
    All I can do is adjust volume and mute on steering wheel. Only the left size buttons work.
    I think I will have to uptate the MCU to get this working. I will try to found a MCU update like yours.
    Could you please inform your car model and unit system/MCU?

    I have posted the screenshot of my system data below. You can see the MCU version...

    As far as SWC it is pretty much the same in my case. The right side SWC do not do anything. On the left I have the following functionality:

    Left, Right: changes songs (stock Music app or CD only) or Radio Station Presets
    Up, Down: volume up or down
    Microphone button: only mutes/unmutes- this is the biggest loss from the VW setup..
    Phone button: starts the Bluetooth app


    And now some not so good news...
    I got an email from somebody at Roadrover telling me the system file/MCU I have is the latest there is. He/she also told me that the Android 4.1 software, which I asked for, will not work with my hardware Sounds like going forward they may stop working on updates for the old platform... Too bad... Some apps do not work with 2.3.4 and some are much better with Android 4.1 (Like Google Maps for example)
