Re: Trying to solve the AA and Car Play mystery - UK Soul EV DEALER ENGINEERING MODE?

Unfortunately that PDF is for the US UVO type head unit The UK/European one is different There probably is a a similar sequence to get in to engineering mode but from which screen and where to press is a mystery.
