    GROM Vline V2

    @BLK ISF yep, all the wiring is up front, never touched anything in the rear. That is the exact EQ I'm referring to, the first to pictures of OEM EQ settings. The 3rd pic looks like VLine Android settings? Anyhow, I've tried following the manual instructions of long-press DISC key (or something like that). But my unit doesn't exactly have a DISC key. How did you bring yours up?

  4. Just bought some Pilot Sport 4 as well... only 1000km ago, but much nicer than the PS3 that were on it before. Super quiet in comparison. Haven't had time to compare anything else yet.

    GROM Vline V2

    I checked with the engine running, just on accessories and ingntion etc and i hear zero feedback from the boot/amp etc. No humming noise whatsover. I just want to clarify when you say EQ do you mean any of these pics attached? Good luck with the amp and possible warranty. You'd like to think logic prevails in that if its faulty/hardware, what the hell does plugging anything into matter but lets see. The Vline doesnt even connect to it does it? I saw the installer for my car now and then and he was always working up front, centre console etc. I did have an issue today, for some reason for a 30 min drive, it couldnt connect. i.e. I could still use USB audio and the maps appeared (Waze and google maps) but no connection so couldnt use the nav function. Hotspot definitely connected (never done that before so hoping its the first and last lol). OEM map and phone mapping still worked so not a big deal at this stage

    GROM Vline V2

    As Banserki has mentioned, its a standalone unit so it doesnt need a phone to operate however you need a hotspot for connectivity so depends what apps you use. i.e. Most apps need it like maps, youtube etc to function It is Android based but not working with Android Auto at the moment, havent checked if there has been an update in the last week so who knows. In saying that i still get good functionality out of it regarding navigation, voice commands, movies, streaming, music etc so for me personally Android auto wasnt a big deal for me (for some no doubt it will be) but they have advised with new software updates it should work so lets see. Yet to try it as i use Android but with a gmail account, you can download apps from the playstore or most likely (as with any Android unit), ensure apps can be downloaded from unknown sources and most likely download apps from Chrome etc and bluetooth to the device for install

    Yes, according to their website. They have a link here to enter your car/make/model etc https://gromaudio.com/store/vline/index.html
  9. I fitted Michelin PS4's 20 months ago. 225/18 and 255/18 1/2 worn, Approx 20k ks. Not driven lightly. Very happy. Very Even wear, good grip, etc etc.

    GROM Vline V2

    @BLK ISF thanks, good to hear your experience has been smooth. I've been in contact with GROM and we're slowly ironing out these issues (at least I hope so, so far just a lot of sending logs/firmware back and forth). Are you able to tell me how you're getting the EQ up? From what I understand, the EQ settings for FM and say AUX, CD or USB are different. I say this because I have EQ settings set for FM but when I went to AUX, it's at default. In any case, I can't access the VLine (USB setting for me) EQ as that immediately enters VLine interface. How do you bring up the EQ then? As for the buzzing sound, it comes on even just on acc on, no need to start the engine. Very likely its the amp as @_ISF said, as it went away briefly whilst doing a VLine firmware update and the unit rebooted then the buzzing resumed. However I have noticed that it no longer always comes on...suggests a wiring problem perhaps? I did the wiring myself, but I'm no stranger to wiring up car audio and have triple-checked my work when these issues started showing. Edit: I've had the VLine few months now, but now only actively trying to solve the issues as I'm driving the car more now. It could be the amp is faulty, I've read a few threads around the internet of Lexus Mark Levinson amp buzzing. I've arranged with Lexus of Perth to inspect the issue and hopefully replace under warranty if it's faulty (still have about 2.5 years warranty remaining). Finger's crossed they won't say the VLine voids the warranty cover!

    GROM Vline V2

    Yes it will connect to any phone with bluetooth. You get MORE function with an iPhone as appleplay works now apparently. the unit is an Android system itself and can run Spotify or anything from the Android store.

    GROM Vline V2

    OK apologies in advance if this is a stupid question - but i haven't been able to find out this information on the Grom website or from Googling.....can you use the Grom vline v2 if you do not have an Android smartphone? If yes, then is there any functionality you lose on the Grom unit from having an iPhone rather than an Android phone? All the videos/reviews i have seen always have the unit working with an Android phone. Does the phone need to by physically plugged into a USB port to connect to the unit?
  13. Sorry I was just going to answer 😀 yes it can be a bit slow here.

    The amplifier is in the boot on the driver side so this may be the source of the noise.

    Does this work on 2010 to 12 models ?
  16. https://brakesdirect.com.au/ebc These guys are usually priced pretty well in comparison to other places. Not is Sydney, but they do ship out. I've bought IS-F brakes from them in the past.
  17. Replying to my own thread - how sad. Anyhoo, after two (2) years of owning my car, I found out that if you press the 'START/STOP' (when stopped) and the trans is in anything but P (park), the engine stops AND the radio / accessories stay ON, as I wanted. Mind blown moment. Then I checked the manual... and there it was.

    GROM Vline V2

    Hi Monty, Mine is an earlier model 2008 and definitely no bluetooth for me until now :-) My reverse camera works perfect, never failed once and as mentioned before its my daily drive, i start the car up and stop atleast 3 times a day from work, and other activities. Even startup for me is great. By the time ive reveresed out of my driveway and proceed down the street, the Vline is alwady on but the hotspot connected as well. From memory i have accessed the OEM EQ, can change all sorts of Audio paramaters, channel, treble, bass etc My car is loud with the exhaust and headers but i have definitely never heard a buzzing sound like what you have. Ill check later today, ill start mine up and open the boot to see if my exhaust setup is drowing it out. That would be annoying. Sorry to hear you have having those issues. Have you contacted GROM for any advice/feedback. On the few times i have contacted them, they got back to me within the day but in my instance, the couple things i experienced worked itself out and hasnt resurfaced so touch wood all is working great for me. Im sure yours is all wired up correctly. Im not upto date in that space so i had mine professionally installed.

    GROM Vline V2

    I have the VL1 in my 2011 ISF and my reverse camera doesn't work unless I start the car with the factory CD mode on.
  22. Hello guys, I cant seem to source this anywhere online sale for both front and rear. Does anyone know? Or even a shop in Sydney that sales these? Also is Bendix still bad choice to pick? Thanks..

    GROM Vline V2

    Hi BLK ISF, wondering what year your ISF is? I've purchased the VLine 2 myself, I pre-ordered it at the early pricing stage. Mine is a 2011 ISF, so has all the facelift stuff but my SATNAV did not come with bluetooth music function out of the factory. It arrived in June/July and since then I've not used it much due to issues with reverse cam not working, startup issues and also other little bugs like unable to access factory EQ settings (for USB as that is what the VLine 2 replaces). Not sure if this is from the VLine 2 but I've also noticed a whirring/humming/buzzing sound coming from the driver's side of the boot area. This happened shortly after VLine 2 was installed so I'm assuming might be related to the product? Can't find much online about the noise coming from the boot, there are a few posts on the internet floating around on Lexus vehicles having a noise from the boot due to sub/amp issues on the Mark Levinson system or fuel evap? This is a video I recorded of the noise. I originally suspected it was a set of aftermarket tail lights I had installed but it seemed to persist even after swapping to another brand of aftermarket tail lights, then back to OEM tail lights and even without any tail lights plugged in. This sound occurs once the car is turned on, both acc on or engine start. https://youtu.be/2PWHBlle5Gw https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VpqBKYXFvJ_wxN2lWI3HXEVASRE4L7UF/view?usp=sharing
