it can be that the complete bluetooth function with the mmi skin does not work?
why does the system freeze since the update to 3.0 and i think it is very slowly?
I find it very sad when it is really a final version but the bluetooth function does not work with the mmi skin.
That was one of the reasons to buy your software.

@Bgc Please take a look at this topic https://bluewavestudio.io/forum/viewtop ... f=23&t=412

@Kruss Update of mmi skin is planned. For now you can use default OpenAuto view in case you want to use BT functionality.

In order to connect IBus to the Raspberry Pi you need an adapter (e.g. USB adapter from Rolf Resler). Once you connect the IBus adapter you have to configure it via /home/pi/openauto_controller_service.ini:

Change Type parameter to 3 and Interface parameter to the descriptor of plugged adapter (e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0). It is mandatory to restart the Raspberry PI after changes.

Thanks, that dongle looks tasty, I will probably buy it as the executive solution.

However, I have bought an arduino and a CanBus shield, would you have any advices for this solution? Is it duable?

Just curious, is anyone using the external GPS dongle? If so, could you post a link to the dongle you're using?
would something like this work? Will these work if they are inside a dash? Or do they need to be out in the open?

or would this be better?
