Initially, they sent me the wrong harness and it actually ended up frying the main unit lol. But this did get sorted out. I was also a bit disappointed to find out the unit didn't come with 5Ghz wifi capability given the price (Wanted to connected to Blackvue cam but said it needs to be set to 2GHz wifi mode because the BP didn't have 5GHZ support). The max amount of RAM was only 2GB as well :/. Regardless though, it sure as hell beats the old monochrome display and its like adding a computer to your car and there are a range of possibilities you can do with it.The BluePower certainly looks great in theory, but in reality it is nothing more than a cheap and nasty Android unit bundled with a stupidly expensive wiring harness... I can’t recommend it, and there a plenty of reports of how unreliable it is, and how difficult it can be to work with BluePower if/when things do go wrong
Hey AutoGeek, thanks for the info. I stumbled across another one of your posts on this, and it looks like you have some good experience with these systems.I have been trying to upgrade my 2005 V50 with Performance (Basic) sound to a higher performance factory system with limited success. The speakers are the first to go. I snagged the DynAudio speakers and the Premium Sound amp out of a 2008 junk yard S40. The amp is plug-and-play and made a huge improvement. I got a CD changer with aux out of a 2007 but the harness is completely different from mine. The 2008 ICM is not recognized by my car. I did get a 2005 Premium Sound ICM and it worked. The sound is improved mainly because it is programmed differently, the hardware is the same. I still don't get the Premium Sound equalizers or other DSP functions. They are apparently in the CD changer, again very different wire harness.
Overall the sound is greatly improved with the DynAudio speakers, Premium Sound amp and ICM. I really could use the equalizers and I really wish I could stream audio from a phone or MP3 player.
Thanks for the info. I guess I can look and see if it is there or not. Thanks!There were two variants of the basic (Performance) system. One has the amp built into the CD player. The other, like mine, has the amp located in the trunk left side behind the trim panel.
