    I have audi q3 8u 2012y 2,0tdi
    original audi rmc nav unit with ami in headrest.
    I installed android 10,9″ monitor and connect all like instructed (all original cables come with new unit). can is working and everything is ok.
    just I can’t get sound from new unit (from youtube, usb mp4 and etc..)
    original sound is coming when I select mmi menu (radio, cd)..
