FAQ and Answers:
Question 1: Hey! Would I be able to install an aftermarket amplifier with this head unit to power 4 speakers and a subwoofer? I see there is a pair of RCA outs for the fronts only. Thanks
Answer: Our model HL-8835 has a left front output, left right output, rear left output, rear right output, and a subwoofer output.
Only HL-8835 with the latest design has five RCA outputs. The old design has only two RCA outputs.
Question 2: If I do not take the DVD will the original CD remain in place? Would I be able to control it somehow, and what will be the main volume button (at the moment it's the one underneath the CD)? My car has no steering wheel buttons.
Answer: Yes, the original CD will be in place but it will be disabled. The main volume knob is in the middle of the Nav, next/back, and MPH buttons.
Question 3: Will all the warning lights like the check engine work with the new radio?
Answer: The warning lights are on the cluster. They will continue to work the same as before. Our model HL-8835 fits your car
Question 4: My car has a factory DAB tuner. Will I retain it?
Answer: The original DAB tuner will be disabled. We will provide a DAB antenna adapter so the original DAB antenna will be retained to be used with our Android DAB+dongle.
Question 5: Will I be able to see my fuel mileage per gallon and reset it and also see the outdoor temperature with this Radio?
Answer: Our radio does not show this information.
Question 6: Would this still control the instrument panel above the steering wheel?
Answer: Our radio does not control the instrument panels above the steering wheel. However, you can still control it through the turn signal switch.
Question 7: Chime sound not wo
