PiLink Android Auto Upgrade
This is a full upgrade package for PiLink so you can use Android Auto in your car while simultaneously capturing logs and tuning with ECMLink. This includes the hardware and software license you need as well as an updated PiLink image that integrates properly with the Android Auto software.
It does NOT include a display and input devices (touch screen strongly recommended, and hey John Freund Racing has a really great 6.8" display that works with this! See Related Items below). It is up to the user to supply these.
It does not provide amplified sound. Output is a 3.5mm stereo jack you'll need to feed to your amplified sound system (i.e. 4 or 5 channel amplifier). The software does provide volume control but no balance/fade controls, so you'll need to also manage those through your system (usually via gain dials on your amplifier). This is left as an exercise to the customer as I don't have a car stereo to play with in my race car. I think it's as simple as getting a 3.5mm to RCA splitter for most amplifiers.
What this includes:
I'm not really making any money of this. Here's the breakdown of this upgrade price:
In fact, if you'd like to just purchase the components yourself here are the links for the products:
Also if your system was a Pi 3B+ based system you'll need a new case. I can print one for you at relatively low cost but you'll need to reach out to me via email to discuss.
If you do buy the components yourself, reach out to me and I can provide a link to a PiLink image containing the OpenAuto Pro software already integrated (trust me, it wasn't easy getting it to work) and instructions on how to assemble everything (you can't just pick random USB ports).
I just thought this was cool to have and since the core of the Android Auto software isn't mine, just the integration, I didn't feel right profiting off it.
Integration with ECMLink is fairly seamless. In OpenAuto Pro you simply go to the Applications menu and select ECMLink to display and work with ECMLink. To return to OpenAuto Pro you click the "autoapp" section of the task bar. OpenAuto remains running in the background while working with ECMLink.
NOTE! This product is MADE TO ORDER. I do not keep inventory, so I will need to order all these components after you place your order. Please be patient. This means I am subject to current parts availability though I will communicate any delays with you.
1 year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials under normal use and conditions. Does not cover anything regarding OpenAuto Pro. John Freund Racing LLC agrees, at its option during the warranty period, to repair any defect in material or workmanship or to furnish a repaired or refurbished product of equal value in exchange without charge (except for a fee for shipping, handling, packing, return postage, and insurance which will be incurred by the customer).
