Great....!! It was so fun to install and troubleshoot mine. Got everything working now...and am going to change the Reverse Camera View this weekend. Right now it is this weird fish eyed view....and I am going to change it to the regular view. If it works, I will post directions.

Good Luck....!! If you run into any issues....and I don't respond quickly....send me an email to [email protected].
Does it not give you the 4 different view options while you're reversing?

Also, got it confirmed that the Navifly PX6 (The most expensive model) DOES NOT support built in wireless carplay. but the Joying PX6 (same price, but Android 8.1) and the Navifly M400 ($100 cheaper) does. Go figure

Nah , these units have been too much work. The PX6 has been perfect other than wireless ACP, and I thought the UI on Android 8.1 was ugly as hell haha. Plus I hardly ever used wireless ACP on my Joying, it just destroys my battery and would lag from time to time.

That being said though, I'm sure Ill regret this decision in 3 years when Apple releases an iphone without a charging port and I'll have to buy another head unit

Yeah that would suck. And I have not gotten the M400 to do Wired CarPlay. It’s not an option in my Tlink software. Was hoping one of the others got that working. Not a deal breaker though.

Can’t seem to find this Navifly m400 specific for my civic is it the universal one for 150?

What is your civic model and year?

also are you/anyone running after market speaker? I read somewhere that someone had no volume with that and had to switch back to stock speakers. Don’t remember which make it was and to lazy to read thru all the pages.

I finished putting on extra heat sinks and some artic silver thermal paste. They had this white spread that did not look good at the top of the unit. Making sure the unit stays cool. I just at least tested everything turns on! So far it’s fantastic. My sub doesn’t need to be turned up too loud now. Now the real wiring needs to be done. Probably think I’m nuts for taking it apart. I can’t recommend if your a novice at electronics. But this thing is being cooled by the black housing in the back connected to a sticky thermal pad.

Here is the link: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001128175941.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.20034c4dgPYsQM

Select the M400 and China as the Ships from.

I am the one that tried to install after market speakers and they made the radio lose all sound. Would work for about 3 minutes then no sound, until I disconnected all from the radio. They were JBL GX628's....and only the front two speakers. I have seen others online use Polk, and maybe I just had a bum set of caps on my filter....not sure. But I have tuned the front and rear stock speakers with the DSP so well, that I am glad I pocketed the $70. The sound deadening helped immensely too.

I have everything working great now....and I love it...!! Do you have a 6 Speed Manual or Automatic...?

Looks great...!! Was considering doing it this winter, as I live in the South and it gets +100degs out here. So I assume it was just screws to open...? Assume the extra heat sinks did not get in the way of the metal case..? Thanks for Sharing...!

Sure....no problem. Since you have a 6 Sp Manual......you will need to tie in the Reverse Signal to the radio.....I show you how to do this on Post #1073 back a few pages. Took me a few weeks to figure it out....but to implement only takes about 5 minutes. Let me know if you get a radio and you need help.

I had to spread them like above so it wasn’t in the way. Yes just 8 screws. Use correct size screw driver these will strip easily. Also take a photo of the ribbon cable direction so your not confused which way it goes back. It has 3 ribbon cables and 1 power cable that hooks to the board. Be sure you have available thermal paste. As once you remove it the thermal paste at the top of the unit will smear off.
