    I know this seems unrelated but wouldn't hurt to change your ui theme back to the original one while testing. I went through every single theme on the one button version and I know for a fact a few of them make the radio do some crazy things. One theme caused the main app that controls the menu and climate control to continually crash until I changed to a different theme.

    I will have to try that because my radio burnt up and when I got a replacement it came with that theme pre set.

    Just out of curiosity what do you mean your last radio burnt up? What happened and what style radio was it? If you end up replacing it again I would ask for a 1 button version. I am not saying they are better just seems to be more consistently manufactured. Plus that is what the majority of people seem to have so easier to troubleshoot.

    I was going down the road and the screen went off and I smelt a burnt smell so I called Phoenix Android Radio and they sent me a replacement under the warranty! It was a 7.1 fast boot and they replaced it with the same model except the new one was supposedly updated to the latest software at the time of replacement back in April of this year. I got this radio in August 2018. But since I have owned the radio it has never given me a digital readout on the ac it just says low.

    Okay I went to my UI settings and it only gives me 2 options where my old radio gave me a bunch but I changed it to the only other one but it still didn’t work. The only combination I can get to work is Dodge RAM HI and the protocol set to simple.

    Wondering if you have the wrong firmware and mcu. Don't know if I have ever seen anyone on here post the KW branded versions. My three button version was CHWY. If you reach out to Phoenix on Facebook Messenger they usually respond pretty quickly and whoever answers is knowledgeable.

    I sent a message to Phoenix Android Radio so I will wait and see what they say. The crazy thing is, if it is the wrong Firmware and mcu then it came from FAR that way unless it was shipped straight from China.

    You never know with these units. you have what we call the bootleg unit.
    You can tell because it's not a full 10.4 inch screen.... It has the black bar all the way around it. I hope Phoenix responds with good news for you
