PX6 Outside Temperature - reading 0 deg

Post by RiverCake »

Hi All,

I have a 2018 Base Ford Explorer with the new PX6 Installed.
Under Install Set I selected "Display Temperature" - which I want to know what the outside temp is - and was available on my old 4" Screen.

It shows up at the top, beside the screen dim control indicator, but is always reading 0 deg.

This must be read by the CAN system somehow - but is obviously wrong.

Is anyone else aware of this issue? Is there any plan to update the FW to address this?

Thanks!

My new 2021 PX6 did have the correct temp display in Fahrenheit when I first bought the unit. I did not make any major changes when suddenly after a reboot, it was showing -40 Fahrenheit. After about four days of trying to figure this out, going into system settings and switching back and forth between Celsius and Fahrenheit. I could find no fix for this oh, sorry. I will keep looking however I think this is a bug. After two weeks I still see-40 Fahrenheit. So I turned off the temperature from my main screen.

I do have the OBD connector and I used the program called Torque Pro that I paid for. It has the correct outside temperature. I don't believe my car data is the issue. I truly believe this is a Android radio bug on the newer px6.

Yup, another bug - I agree completely that it is in the PX6 software, probably reading a simulated address or something...

Why doesn't someone from this manufacturer fix it?
