Installed the CC3 last night. Everything seems to be working fine (great sound quality).
Does anyone know of a site (besides https://cc3.teyes.ru/en/index.html) that explains what all of the touchscreen options do? I hate just going through and pushing buttons waiting for something to happen.
Also what are the best apps / apks you recommend?
I have a 450GB SSD drive plugged into one of the USB extensions that runs to my glovebox. I have all my music in lossless flac files on this drive. I purchased and installed Poweramp Pro to play the music and keep it organized. I use the EQ inside of poweramp to control my levels and I cannot recommend it enough. It is awesome.

Today I got to installing the supplied rear view camera as a front facing "Trail Cam". I did a bit of a hack job at modifying the gladiator grill insert that I bought to make it fit, but I think that it came out reasonably well and it was super easy!

I used the cutoff wheel on a dremel to remove the circular part of the insert housing and to open up a square hole. Then I just flipped the cameras mount so that the bracket was parallel to it's back and zip tied the bracket to the gladiator camera retention bracket. I then ran the wire up through the passenger side of the dash, to the top speaker pod area, folded the window forward and ran the cable out underneath the passenger plastic hood flaring and into the engine bay. Then I just made the connection at the grill and put everything back together again.

I am really impressed at the viewing angle and clarity of this camera. I saw that Teyes also sells a wider angle Sony camera, and that might be a good upgrade sometime, but for this one being provided free, I like it.

I'm considering the Teyes CC3. I currently have the 8.4" Uconnect WITHOUT Alpine upgrade. The screen and features of the radio are great and the factory integration is obviously superb. But the sound quality is significantly lacking. I have a few questions.

-How is the integration of factory settings (control of aux switches, auto seat/steering wheel heat, climate controls, etc).

-There were complaints that the volume settings were not retained from previous use. So when the car turned off, the volume reset to a standard volume. Has this been fixed?

-Does the Android Auto/CarPlay work via the Jeep's factory USB connections (either in the console or at the media hub under the climate controls)?

yes CarPlay works for me in the factory usb slots.

As for the radio and vehicle controls everything works for me. I did lose my volume knob but I’ve gotten so used to using the steering wheel controls I don’t even notice. I have the volume set to around 15 on the freeway and 10 on local roads. When I turn off my Jeep and come back it defaults the volume to 8 and I love this feature.

I currently use apps on my Android phone to control and operate two cameras. A GoPro 8 black and a Removu K1 gimbaled camera. Since both apps came from Google Play Store, do you think that I can download the apps and get them to run on the CC2? My CC2 is being shipped on the proverbial Slowboat from China as I write this.

I would say yes. The apps should run... But there is a catch. If the apps communicate via bluetooth, you will have a problem pairing to them. In short, teyes tried to disable bluetooth to anything but their obd2 adapter, and they did this by disabling the bluetooth control panel app and by turning off name discovery. There are workarounds published, and they work as I've paired my mx+ obd2.
