Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I had purchased an aftermarket android unit known as the GROM VLINE2 to get modern functionality like apple carplay in my IS250. Initially it didn’t work and I returned it but after liaising with GROM audio a software update came out which addresses most of my issues with the unit and the functionality is far better. After speaking to a fellow user, he was advised to locate this particular module known as the Multimedia interface ECU as this can help with stability of the unit. for the life of me I wasn’t able to locate the unit in my vehicle despite being sent a diagram for the LHD vehicle. I tried to Google some vehicle diagrams but it’s not quite clear where this is located in a RHD vehicle as well as what the unit looks like via that eBay auction. If someone could help me locate this it would be greatly appreciated.

and disconnect the battery before touching the knee airbag.

Cheers mate I shall do, glovebox should be easy enough instead of dashboard!

So after locating this module what exactly are you gonna do to it as regards to the aftermarket VL2 unit?

I didn't have to access anything other than the back of the actual audio/display "boxes" when I installed my Vline.

The only fiddly bit was feeding the wires to the Vline unit in the glovebox.

According to the guys at GROM I should try to disconnect some cables from the multimedia interface as this can help with the detection of the GROM Unit in my vehicle and make it more stable. I’ll be attempting this after work I did manage to get most of the trim around the glovebox off just have to take the actual thing off

Yeah this shouldn’t be necessary for most however I have a 2010 facelift model and the GROM Is quite temperamental with mine, it is working far better than it used to but the only way I can access it is select USB as an Audi source and putting my car into reverse gear.

Quick update, managed to locate the multimedia interface and followed GROM's instructions but made no difference. Will be liaising further with them but appreciate the input from everyone!
