The driver of the vehicle must never be distracted by moving pictures. In most countries/states, watching movies whilst driving is prohibited. Therefore, we do not accept any liability for material damage or personal injury resulting, directly or indirectly, from the installation or the operation of this TV-free interface.
Interface and software basic information:
New cars can be based on new hardware and software versions not compatible with previous ones. The period required by programmers to study these new solution is about 2/3 months. It’s impossible to be sure about interfaces compatibility on cars released earlier than 3/4 months.
Car manufacturers release new software versions without advise which could compromise the compatibility with third party electronic devices. We try to optimize all the information as soon as possible.
We suggest to not update the car software if not strictly required.
The same problems could be experienced on special version cars and on vehicles developed for different markets like American market or European market.
In many cases, updating the interface software is the same as replacing the interface itself. This means that the car must be disassembled as at the first installation.
Multimedia and CAN-BUS interfaces are very sophisticated devices which have to be installed in advanced and complex electronic car environments. The installation must be performed by highly experienced personnel. Also is it possible that the car won’t except the interface for some reasons. In this case we have to look for alternatives.
