Microphone noise problem with Dasaita Android Radio

Hello! I’ve got a 2018 Toyota Auris (yes, i know, in the USA is named Corolla). I changed the radio for a Dasaita PX6 radio with DSP and Android 10.

It came with an external Microphone but they don’t allow you to use the OEM microphone wich was… honestly perfect. This is what the radio came with:

The microphone connects via 3.5mm Mini Jack. I tested it and I turned the microphone amplification to +10db because if i had it lower, NOBODY CAN HEAR ME. So… +10db, ok.

The audio quality in calls was so horrific that I thought… well maybe is this ****ty microphone, lets try another one. So I bought the Sony ECM-CS3:

I connected it with the same settings (remember, less than +10db means nobody can hear me), and… I still had the same Issue. The microphone audio is distorted as hell. I tested it by recording a call with my girlfriend. I’m the dude… and i can’t even understand myself. The worst part is in the middle, when I am driving in the highway (min. 8 aprox):

I though about trying to Isolate the microphone with foam because my actual setup is this:

It has foam underneath for vibrations, but the actual microphone has no foam around. I’ll test it later but for me it looks more like a software issue.

What do you think? Any idea of how to improve the sound quality? I found this post in a Tacoma forum where **a guy found a way to use the OEM microphone from Toyota in an Android Unit**. But I am scared of not being compatible with the Corollas:

Oh! I made a video (in Spanish, sorry. But **it has English subs!**) showing the whole setup of the radio where you can see everything better:
