I have yet to receive my order. I ordered it during pre-order. I received an invoice, but still have not received the G4 nor has it been charged to my credit card.
I just received an email telling me that the bluetooth feature may not be completely compatible. Is this the reason my order has been delayed?
I read also the backup camera wire was not "supported currently".
I've read that the steering wheel control is not "supported currently".
I've heard issues with the GPS/Nav part flaking out.
I've seen that (some) external HD are not powered by the USB.
what else is not supported?
Or is it a shorter list to tell us whate exactly works and works solid?
Bluetooth was and is going to be an add-on option. We thought it would be ready to ship with the G4 based on our internal testing with some phones in the lab, but after testing it in the real world, we found some issues remained and we decided to extend our testing until we could be sure of a solid release. It will still be released for the G4 and will allow your phone to work with it when it is. It's just not ready yet and because of that your phone will not work with the G4 until it is.
The backup camera is fully supported. There are no known issues with it.
The steering wheel control wire is not currently supported, but you can add an SWI-X to get this functionality.
There have been some major issues reported with navigation using some usb GPS adapters, but nothing has been officially reported as a navigation bug effecting the G4 yet.
The G4 powers USB hard drives just as well as every other computer does. If you add a hub and add multiple high power usb devices to that hub (i.e. a hard drive) the devices won't work unless you power it. This is just how USB works. You can complain about it all you want, the only answer we can give remains the same, you have to power your hub if you want high powered devices to work off of it.
Just wondering about bluetooth, do you have an approximate time to release? weeks? months? just so I can plan out my strategy.
Also as for the nav, if using just the infill G4's nav functions, are there any problems with that? Or just if someone uses an external GPS.
As an aside for anyone who knows, what's the point of using an external GPS adapter if the G4 has its own?
How long will the G4 be out of stock?
