A better question is will Honda ever come out with any updates?To those who have HondaHack installed, I have a few questions.
1- Is it possible to reverse the rooting of the headunit? I wonder if Honda comes up with a worthwhile update someday that the root will prevent the update to install.
I don't use Waze but all the guys on XDA seem to prefer to have it on the HU. I have read that it works well on the HU.2- I'm currently using Waze all the time in my car through Android Auto and it works fine. What benefits would I get by installing Waze directly in the headunit? Does it run smoother? Is it the same "simplified" Android Auto version that shows on the headunit or the full phone version?
Yes you do and there may be some apps that update past Kit Kat compatibility so you will have to stick with the older version.3- What about apps updates? You don't get access to the Play Store, so I guess you have to manually download the APK when there's a new version of an app?
Good luckThanks in advance!
I just learned about this yesterday and went through with it. Bought the Pro version and installed it on my 2017 CRV.
Installation was easy though nerve-raking while waiting for it to finish. Once completed I installed a few of the apps listed within Honda Hack such as Google Maps and Waze. I then went online and went looking for my Home Alarm Android app, downloaded the APK onto a USB stick, and used Honda Hack to install it. Seems to be working fine and I can arm/disarm my alarm system once the car picks up the home's wifi from the driveway.
have not read about overclocking.. will have to look into that. that could be a little riskyI installed the Hondahack. I love it!! I love google maps, Netflix, and spotify. I read some have installed a CPU overclocker to speed up the HU by 30%.
