    Issue with Honda CR-V 2018 JDM

    @Sujit thank you. That's pretty useful... was using Google Translate on the phone all this time

    Finally got my SD Card last Friday so been playing around with it a bit. The FM band limitation, language and the time issue are my only gripes as the sound quality is pretty good. Might stick with this for a while and see if my OCD kicks in and bug me for a fully functional non Jap headunit @kce991 did you return/sell your Android headunit?

    Can't seem to change the time from the settings as I heard that it auto updates from the dongle connected to the headunit in Japan, but since it doesn't work here, we are stuck with Japanese time. (Not 100% sure) Maybe there is a way to change the timezone through the GPS settings and fix it (that's what is being done in the above video?) @kce991 I think the issues you ran in to could've been fixed with a bit of tinkering on Android but guess you are more than happy with the Gathers system though Were you able to fix the time on Gathers? Or did the time not reset after you fixed it with the Android system and then changed to Gathers again?

    Looks like luck came knocking as the agents had got down the SD Card yesterday (after 3 months +).... But thank you so much for the offer to help Seems like I will get the SD Card after all from the agents. But I'm curious about the issues you had with the Chinese head unit... Was the audio quality not up to par or was it something else? I had a similar Android headunit in my previous vehicle, and since it had Android with a bit of tinkering it was pretty awesome..

    Got the spare key, but no SD Card yet

    Thing is, there aren't any branded headunits for the CRV 2018. It's mostly Chinese Android headunits (Joying, Belsee) Some of the 'Chinese' branded ones are decent because you can install mods like Viper4Android to boost the audio quality + can do anything you can do on a typical Android + screenshare your phone Audio : Radio up to 90MHz, SD Card, CD, Bluetooth. Video : Not too sure about DVD, TV doesn't work here Navigation doesn't work as well. Apple Car Play works according to @danss70 but for people who prefer Android, no show in that department

    So So I did find one of these aftermarket headunits (Android) in a shop in Kohuwela. They said it was 30K so I asked if I could check it out. It was a generic no name headunit, so I thought 30k would be decent if it actually works rather than this Gathers headunit on which I couldn't do much on. Then the shop owner came and said "Sorry pren, the price is akshually 70k". Wasting 30k on a no name headunit was a bit of a concern but justifiable, but 70k? Not so much.

    Nice. Will probably get one of those as SL doesn't seem to have aftermarket headunits for CRVs

    Android Auto not working = probably because it's supported in Sri Lanka as a whole? 5. Could I get a link to the converter you used? Also, it shows the old bands on the display yeah? Oh well, still waiting for my dealer to send me the SD Card 😢

    Transfering CID's can be a pain in the a55, even with the correct hardware. Oh well, I guess I'll wait till my importer gets it down for me. @danss70 let us know how your journey with Gathers turnout after meddling with it a bit

    Recommendations for a vehicle for permit

    If you saw the MG ZS crash from Kottawa, you will probably steer waaaay clear off of it. I was in a similar position as you around a month back, and the options for me were Eclipse Cross 3008 CRV (Grand) Vitara. Eclipse Cross was pretty decent, but it's backside design and the helpfulness of the agents were a no go. + fuel economy is on the low side 3008 looked great on paper, but when you think of the Sri Lanka's second hand market and agents not fulfilling some of the previous permit holders issues, sadly had to let it go. (fuel economy is pretty good apparently, but didn't quite get to check that out) CRV, the interior isn't as exciting as the 3008 but is quite comfy and spacious + with the all safety bells and whistles. Fuel economy was better than the EC. (Grand) Vitara is supposed to be quite good fuel economy-wise + engine/transmission-wise but I wasn't too excited about the looks of the vehicle, so I didn't quite go after it. End of the day, got down a CRV 2018 JDM (with all the safety bells and whistles) and am quite happy about it atm. The safety stuff lights up like a Christmas tree with our 3wheeler buggers but I guess you can always turn them off if you do not want them. Only time will tell how it will turn out in 5 years.

    @danss70 Were you able to access the menu and change language and stuff? It would be too much to ask you to post the content of the SD card eh? I'll buy you a full BBQ platter if you do

    Another things, is the vehicle time tied in with the Gathers headunit? I saw a blogpost or forum post which mentioned that the time is autoupdated through the headunit 3G/4G connection which does not work in SL. Is this true? Because I didn't find a way to update the time on the vehicle and it seems to be stuck in Japanese time :|

    There was an advert on Ikmun with a Gather Map SD Card for 10k

    I've also run in to the same problem and the importer said they will get back with the maps SD card. If they do so I'll post the files here. Alternatively are there any aftermarket headunits available in Sri Lanka? (Belsee, Joying?) There are quite a few brands offering these headunits on AliExpress but they cost 50k+ and shipping which might be a pain to clear from customs
