    They have to be plugged into the A0582 adapter where it plugs into the BM54. The instructions are weak at best, I made the same mistake. My car had an aftermarket XM adapter that used the stock AM/FM antenna. No matter how I plugged it into the A0582 harness I was only able to receive poor to mediocre AM/FM signal, that's why I went to the aftermarket shark fin antenna.

    Where did you spliced in?

    Tnx in advance?
    I spliced in in the trunk area where the can bus decoder plugs into the wiring harness. You can use the unused adapters that shipped with the radio to figure out which wire. On my new harness it was an orange wire that went to pin six, but both the unused adapters have a brown wire running to pin six.

I'm assuming that any vehicle that came from the factory with a backup camera wouldn't need this modification and it would already be getting the signal from the CanBus.

    I am in the process of installing this into my 2003 Range Rover G4 and I am stuck - I wired everything up and before running the A0582 harness from back to front, I decided to plug in the head unit just to make sure everything is working. It's not. The head unit powers on but I am getting zero sound. The radio also failed to pick up any station while auto scanning. Am I doing something wrong? Here are some pictures of my install so far.

    A0582 plug into stock BM54 radio and the stock BM54 harness is plugged into A0582

    Unplugged radio antenna from BM54 into A0582 radio jack
    Attachment 273912



    Plug A0582 into Eonon Canbus decoder that came with the Eonon unit. When I plugged this in, the lights in the car would turn on (I did not disconnect battery).
    Attachment 273914



    The front end of A0582 plugged into Eonon unit. It powers up but there is no sound at all and doesn't seem like it's picking up any radio stations. Bluetooth connects from my phone to Eonon but again no sound when playing music.

    I did not connect the center speaker on top of the dash. What am I doing wrong???

    I used a wire tap on the hot lead to the backup lights for power to the backup camera and to the A0582 harness where you plug the Can Bus decoder that comes with the GA9301B. Tap into the the same color wire that goes to pin 6 (rearview control wire) of the GA9301B.

    Shark fin antenna link. You will have to specify which 4 antenna leads you want and what connectors you want on them. DAB is for digital audio broadcast, a standard that is used in Europe but not the US, here we use HD radio instead. If you need more information PM me your email address and I'll forward the email I sent to the factory specifying what I needed.

    Congratulations, you'll be happy you did. Just as a FYI, I found a keyboard very helpful in setting mine up, either USB or Bluetooth.

    rattler1975 and MrE, thanks again for your replies.

    Eonon contact me and noted that GA9201A was out of stock, but their replacement model is GA9201B. Among some of the changes, GA9201B no longer has the EONON logo on the front, so it can blend it better with the rest of the dash. They are sending it with an A0582 harness. I can't wait to install it!

    With the GA9301B they added a 'DIM' button for adjusting the display brightness, you should be able to adjust yours through settings.

    You will need a functioning BM54 for it to work.

    Quick update. I have the Logic 7 and it worked fine with the amp and everything, which was one of my initial concerns as well. Everything is still working fine. I'm not 100% sure about the new models offered, but I'd just see what the old models were updated to and get one of those. Make sure you get the wiring harness. I don't have the backup camera...

    Everything is still working fine.

    Thanks Rattler, MrE and the others for your informative posts. I have a Dynavin in Rover 2, but Rover 1's BM54 just died due to water ingress, so I decided it was time to do an upgrade. The new Dynavin N7 is overpriced for what it is, so I just picked up the Eonon GA9201A with an A0582 harness, which I'm hoping will work fine.

    My first question is: seeing from Rattler's pictures of how the harness plugs into the existing BM54, do you need to have a fully functioning BM54 for the EONON to function correctly? Or can the Eonon work without a BM54 even present?

    I'm also planning on wiring up a rear reverse camera in addition to a front bumper cam.

    Lastly, I'm an audiophile and have another life in home Hi-Fi, building speakers and such. So I have enormous respect for Harman and the work Dr. Floyd Toole has done in quantifying loudspekaer measurements. I'm also impressed by the work Harman did on the Logic 7, I think the factory amp and DSP setup sounds great in the car and I wish to keep every aspect of it. I want to keep the DSP and ensure that the Eonon uses the Logic 7. Any further tips on interfacing on the Logic 7 would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    My 2004 did not have bluetooth from the factory. My Eonon does have hands free bluetooth. My steering wheel does not have the 'phone' button, but all the buttons used to control the factory stereo function correctly with the Eonon. The radio also has streaming bluetooth so I can play music off my phone without having to connect to the radio USB port.
