Some of the advanced features of an Android Headunit are protected by a PIN or passcode number.
There reasoning behind this is to prevent the tinkerer from changing setting that could cause a problem such as a non functional head unit. This leads to unnecessary vendor contact (time wasting) and in the event of no contact, then unwarranted poor reviews are often unfairly left. By protecting the advanced features from accidental changes it keeps the headunit functioning well, for longer.
These PIN codes are usually in the manual and you have either thrown it in the recycling by now or there is no password code in the manual 🙁 These android head unit passcodes not only protect the advanced settings, the boot logo changes, but also protect the factory settings for a reset and the Developer Options have passwords.
These settings passwords can be different numbers for each use. You may even be searching for more than one head unit password, depending on what you need to change.
The Android head unit PIN code is also known as the Menu password, Advanced Settings Password, Factory reset Kode, Android head unit factory settings password, Android 10 head unit pass code or boot logo password.
Whichever name it goes under, the secret android headunit code you need to dig deeper in its settings, is going to be in the list below. Just use the not so secret code with caution as you can easily make thin not work by changing the settings. It may surprise you but the setting have already been setup optimally for the hardware installed. Making changes may not bring the improvements you are expecting.
Recycle PIN codes
Luckily the manufacturers tend to reuse the codes and unlike a real PIN code, they are not secret. But finding the one you need to unlock the extra ‘Password Protected’ android headunit feature is frustratingly illusive. Not all of the PIN number are 4 digits, but if yours will only accept a 4 digit PIN, it will help to narrow down the possibilities for you.
