After you remove the factory GLK radio and screen, you can start installing the new 7″ Android screen. There are many plugs from our control box, but if you look out our installation photos as following, you can connect all plugs easily one by one.
How to install Mercedes GLK Android Screen Upgrade?
- Firstly install screen cables with the android screen and the control box.
You may hear a clip sound if they are well connected, make sure it’s clipped well and tight not loose. The small control box can be put in the glove box or any other place you can put into.
- Then you can connect other plugs from the control box
CAR-LVDS: this plug should connect your LVDS plug behind your factory screen.
WiFi: connect WiFi antenna
GPS: connect GPS antenna
Mic: connect our microphone
USB: connect our USB cable
Please check carefully, make sure there’s not anything wrong for any plugs. and make sure all plugs are well connected. You can also take some photos for us to check for you.
- Another 2 big square plugs from our power cable.
Note: VERY IMPORTANT!
If there are fiber optic cables from our factory plug behind your radio, you need to move them to our new plug at the same position, and please make sure it’s well connected to our new plug.
- If you want to install an aftermarket back up camera, here are 2 cables which need to be connected for the camera:
The camera should be powered with 12V reverse light. If the video from the camera does not look good or no signal, you may need to connect a relay to provide stable 12V voltage to the camera, because your reverse light may not be able to provide stable 12V voltage to the camera, a relay connection can solve this.
- The sound transfers from our unit to car speakers through your factory aux mode, so if there’s no sound from android music playing, you need to firstly activate factory aux mode from original menus, then touch the screen, the screen will then switch to android menu automatically, then you can play android music.
