Hey Daniel, Noticed that you guys are in the process of developing a 12.3 inch for the B8, I'm curious about that size and how it would integrated into the vehicle compared to the 10.5. Any sample shots so far ?
I met up with Daniel today in Montreal to see the new hardware for the 10.25 & 12.3 models. These are going to be great! The 12.3 is quite a bit bigger ... I will be giving one a try when it is ready to beta test in my B8 A4. Both of the new screens are really nice. Both are higher resolution at 1920 x 720. The 10.25 has a factory applied anti-reflection matte finish applied, and when comparing to the 12.3, it is a very cool (bright white tone) display. The 12.3 is the same resolution, 1920 x 720, but it does not
come with a factory applied matte anti-reflective coating and the display has a warmer white balance setting. I prefer to not have the anti-reflective coating and the warmer white balance.
For the cooler / warmer white balance, to understand what I am talking about go to your local big box hardware store and look at the "daylight/cool" vs. "warm" light bulbs.
They are running Android 7.1.x, and the interface looks great. Daniel is also working on bringing in some of the settings from outside of the unit, to be adjustable within the unit, so that hardware would not need to be adjusted, but the adjustments can be managed within the Android system. As part of this, he is also working on a single update file, (then select your car within Android) to apply the correct settings, as well he is working on over the air software and firmware updates. This will make the update process simple and much less chance of making a mistake that might brick the device.
The new platform, will be a massive improvement over the current manufacturer's offerings. As many people will often say, things happen for a reason, so this change of manufacturers should bring with it a much better epxerience for all from the initial purchase to any after sale support as well.
Keep up the great work Daniel.
