So I was getting ready to test the 5515 firmware , but it looks like the thread has been deleted. I even had it bookmarked . When I click on it it's no longer available.
Sneaky if you ask me, but of course the paid for version is being advertised. V5516

Well, goturks did get banned from here about the time he started the RCD 330 forum/website. I've been following the 5515/5516 firmware updates too and I probably won't buy a firmware update from them since he can never give a straight answer about why he charged for the 5515, then released it for free and now wants people to pay for 5516 two weeks later and won't shed and details on future development.

I have a copy of the 5515 firmware from that thread if you want it. I did the update earlier in the week and it worked fine.

I understand that it costs money for them to test the firmware and what not. Would have been better if he asked for donations instead.

But yeah the fact that he charged $20 for it and then released it for free. Then deleted all traces of it and released 5516 for 15 is just a bit dishonest. And he even stated in the thread that anyone that paid money for 5515 will get future updates for free. Yeah right .

Could I please get a copy of this file? I bought my 330 at the end of December, so it should hopefully be delivered by the end of January.

Yeah it sounds like they aren't managing the development/updates of the firmware well at all. In some sense, you imagine they should just be free. On the other hand, I understand that they end up bricking the units that they test on and require purchasing of new ones constantly. I just think the method of requesting the funds needs to be worked on. They come across as shady instead.

They should do like "crowd funding" for the development of new firmware and then release it free upon release. This way, they are being funded by individuals that want some enhancements, but in the end, it makes their product better overall which will end up in future head units that they sell. It's a win win for them and the end users that want additional features.

If you are a customer that is satisfied where it currently stands, then yeah, you don't need to fund any development for future enhancements. On the other end to that, if there requires "fixing" to the software, it should be a free release always.

People work hard and take a risk for test it and make it final version stabile one for us.
Each firmware have risk to birick when they test first time i mean who work on it and i know he already brick 2-3 motherboards when create firmware. So i think 15 euro not big deal , even sallers ( aliexpress) dont help us for firmware and plus all new firmwares come from rcd330plus.com even sallers they buy from gokturks. If he dont work for firmware then we still use 5314 right ! dont forget , but now we have siri and ok google volume control with 5516 , anyways .if dont want pay then have link 5515 some other forum and link ( but i dont trust because can brick easly if update with wrong one i just trust rcd330 site because they test and show video it work no problem) and have free link for 5314 use this who dont want pay )

this guy is shady as hell. He advertises his firmware as having no bugs then when people complain that it still has plenty of bugs he'll tell you that you are the only one reporting bugs and it must be your phone then he'll ban you from his site and delete your posts. If you keep an eye on his firmware threads you'll see plenty people that have paid him complain. He's constantly deleting posts and threads and starting new ones. He stated he would release new versions for free to everyone that paid for 5515 which he then denies.

Exactly my point , thank you lol.
I decide to stick with the firmware that came on my unit. Tempted to try out 5515, but have a feeling it will have more bugs than my current version.

5515 seems to work fine. No more bugs than the version that came with mine, but much improved reliability when connecting to CarPlay and better audio quality. Most people seem happy with it.

Are any of the units being sold on Aliexpress, Ebay or Amazon outfitted with this new firmware?
Looking to buy a unit as figure I may as well try to find one thats upgraded.

If you all have a link to a steady source of these I would appreciate it!

the key word in your post is CarPlay.

Most people are happy with carplay functionality. It's android auto that has a bunch of bugs.
