  1. Hi there... sorry for the late reply... The unite works okish... I'm not all too happy with it as it still freezes up and hangs. If I catch it quick by going from CD to FM and then back again and change the track then at times the unit continues to play... I'm looking forward to gettin my hands on the newer RAV when I can afford one... then I can go back to bluetooth streaming... But anywho, to answer your question... All I see on the screen is the CD screen as if it were a multicd player. I can control volume and tracks via the steering wheel, I set the player to play a play list and let it play...every now and then it freezes up or becomes distraughted...I've come to terms with that, so all in all... when it works its good but when it doesnt... its a pain ... hope that helps. regards rob
  2. Thanks for that.... Think I'll give the speaker change a miss... I didnt realise you would need to remove the whole door panel :-( as I dont really have a garage I wont bother doing this one... unless I can get it into a shop for it to be done.... Thanks again Rob
  3. Hi ALL... has no one here replaced their speakers on a Rav 4.3???
  4. Do tell!! Have you got the same 6cd autochanger headunit in the XT5? What teething problems have you encountered? Very interested to hear what you think - would you be able to do a review of the GROM kit please Well... Fitting it was a doddle... having said that... I first tried to install it without taking out the system... after a little struggle I realised I wasnt getting anywhere due to my for arm being a little on the bigger side... So once the stereo was removed it was really easy to install. Just plug the loombe (not sure of spelling) into the CD changer slot and off you go... The grom kit gets id by the system as a cd changer... The problem I've been having is that the software on my phone kept freezing... I've re-installed it a few times now and also upgraded the firmware on the grom box and touch wood all has been ok. I can change tracks and volume from my steering wheel controls, also I can change albums etc via my smart phone, so all in all the kit is quite good. Richard at carputer shop(who sell these units) is quick in replying to any issues. The USB connector is just about the right length not to have to drill any holes anywhere. My lead comes out just under knee hight from the centre console, there is a wee small gap in the way the console is put together... the USB cable fits through it and then I've got mine following the crease up towards the windscreen where I've got a phone holder... Hope that helps you a little... any questions dont hesitate to ask
  5. I've just added grom kit...not bad...got a few teething probs..but otherwise its great.... really easy to install n all ;-)
  6. Hi all.... Snyone here replaced the big seakers in their front doors? If yes, what size fits the door, and how do you get to them? Thanks in advance Rgds Rob
  7. Ahh... this one does not plug in via an aux socket... this one is a usb connection into the phone... I thought I had it cracked when I switched off the random play setting on the headunit, as you can set the grom player to random, so I thought perhaps both being set to random might be clashing.... this aint the case... Getting intouch with Carputer shop to let them know Im having issues with the app... see what they come up with...
  8. Direct Streaming??? You've got me there... I'm using the app which you need to down load. I think I've realised what is causing the music to stop/the app to freeze... I dont think the app likes it when you set the stereo to random.... as soon as I deselect this from the headunit the freezing ceases to occurr... Would be interested what you mean by direct streaming...do you mean to use the software that came with the phone, or used the blue tooth capability via the grom bluetooth kit (which I dont have btw) Once I've got this going propperly I can leave my CDs at home.... cant wait regards Rob
  9. just bumping this one... Is there no body oot there who's got an auto xt5 who gets annoyed with the doors not unlocking when car is stopped....
  10. Hi fellow Rav type people heres a question for you... Does anyone here get like a yawning noise off the steering? Mainly occurs when stood still or when manovering to park or leave a parking spot.... Would be interested to know if you have got this noise, and more importantly... is it normal?? Cheers as usuall guys. Regards Rob
  11. Hi all... Quick one for yous :-) Is it possible to set all doors to unlock when shifting the gear stick into P ? On the avensis I had (also with smart entry an stop start button)it could be done...it was in the manual but for some reason mrT hooked mine up to a computer to set it up....Ive tried the close all doors pust start 2 then within 10 seconds go through the motion hold down the door lock button for 5secs a d if successful the car wil lock and unlock itself....cant get it to work for me :-(
  12. Its the GROM-USB2 with just the phone USB cable. Was no point in getting the Bluetooth cable as the Rav has built in Bluetooth already....
  13. Hey there guys I've just installed a Grom Audio USB android box to interface with my B9004 system. Is there anyone out there who's also installed one of these black boxes for an Android phone, not an Iphone, and has had problems with it ? I've had quite a lot of intermittent distortion and every now and then the phone app freezes and I need to reset the phone or even take the battery out of it to get the app working again... anybody had a similar issue like mine ? regards Rob
  14. Hey you fellow Ravvers out there Quick question for you... whenever I open the sunroof fully I get a weird wind sound as I drive along... I've noticed though when the sunroof is closed and you open it, it doesnt actually open fully... Is there anyway of getting rid of the wind noise when the sunroof is opened fully? Cheers Rob
  15. Ey up Firemac... I know what you mean about the lag on the diesel. Whilst me Rav was being seen to by my local Mr T for a few days, they gave me a new RAV to play with... I really liked it, except for the seats, the off the line delay and the cheap leather trim along the dashboard why the hell they did that I dont know... Oh... and although the boot door lifting up the way it does is neat... its !Removed! slow too :-( Still, might be on my next car list in a few years... once the niggles and the price have been sorted oot ;-)
