Hello from Barcelona!

I have just installed the Tesla Style on my 2008 FX35, and it looks great.

I have lost some features from the original system, such as options configuration menu, TPMS indication... that only appears on original system (this is an android tablet with A/C control).

I'm using original reverse camera, using an adaptor cable sent by seller (Aliexpress from China)

If anyone knows how to access to internal car menu through this android system (maybe using bluetooth OBD2 adaptor and a soft) it would be great. Same for TMPS values (now I only have low pressure indication on dashboard :()

I looked at the listing on ALiExpress and my 2004 FX35 dash looks like the one with the X by it stating it won't work. Do you know of any Android head units that will work with mine?
Yes there is a model that works with 05 and earlier FX's. Here is the link: Tesla Style Android Head Unit

I just installed on my 2008 FX35 a few days ago but it seems to be giving me issues with the A/C. It turns it on and off by itself and when I push on the buttons on the screen or the side buttons and try to turn off A/C or set it low of whatever, It doesnt do anything. Anyone know why it might be doing this?

Hello!

I had the same problem during the installation. I contacted to the brand sales manager, and she asked to the design engineers. The engineer sent me a video installation guide, where I discovered that we have to disconnect a device hidden under the passenger front airbag (you have to disassemble all your glove compartment).

After that, A/C works fine.

I can sent you the video by wetransfer if you need. I only need an email address to send you the link.

WHAT CAUSES THE CLIMATE CONTROLS NOT TO WORK PROPERLY
Hi!

I don't know exactly, but I can say that when you disconnect the device under passenger airbag, the system starts working correctly.

I think that this interface communicates with the original system, and when you remove the original control panel it sends incorrect commands to the AC system (that is linked to the tesla style system). When you disconnect this device, all the AC system is under control of the new system.

I think that it would be the same with the bluetooth handsfree. In my car the original handsfree is still working, and that's the reason that I can not control Tesla radio bluetooth using the buttons on the steering wheel (because they are sill linked to the factory one). If anyone knows how to do it, please tell me.

Thanks!

Jaume

hey man I purchased one and I need the trick you did with the wires for climate and steering whee
Hi!

The problem with climate control is fixed disconnecting the device under passanger airbag (you can see the photos in previous messages)

And to control the radio using the buttons on steering wheels, you have to link the buttons to the device. You have this option on settings menu.

I ordered the 13,6 inch Android 9.0 screen (ZhiFang ZWNAV ZF-1828X) for my 2010 Infiniti FX37.
I hope that the tire pressure TPMS, AC and car settings menu will be functional...
After I have installed the screen, I will post my findings here.
This is the link to the installation video:

I ended up purchasing this unit from Aliexpress from that same KiriNavi seller. I went with the 8 core, 4gb RAM, 64gb storage and CarPlay and I am pretty happy with it. It’s not quite perfect as the CarPlay doesn’t always connect right away and it doesn’t seem to be able to read the tpms like the original screen did but the AC controls are great, steering wheel controls integrate well, the touch screen is very responsive. I added a backup camera as my 2005 didn’t have one, (orange screen model), and I was very surprised to find that this unit reads steering angle from the CAN bus lines to give an indication of where you might end up while reversing. Sure that’s not necessary, but it’s neat to see this feature. The Bluetooth works pretty well. Normal android functions work as you would expect. If anyone has any questions about this feel free to ask. I’m very impressed with it and would recommend it. It’s like having a new car.

what did you pay for yours? did you install yourself?
I think it was somewhere around $600 but I can’t remember. Price fluctuates. Yes I installed myself. Most of it is plug and play. If you only have the basic orange display you will have to wire the can bus wires and the connector won’t fit. But if you have a lcd screen, it just plugs in.

Gotcha....thanks. How long did it take to replace?
