    now installed CarPlay on my pre FL , easy to install.

    1) connect CarPlay box to AUDI AMI socket , plug in microphone into CarPlay box

    2) connect to power

    3) plug in iPhone

    4) cycle through the apps using the controller supplied or use Siri (the supplied controller can attach to the steering wheel with the holder provided or it can be removed from the holder and placed some where else.

    all works fine - grt that I have up to date maps now as my maps were 2011 , all music is stored on my phone and and on jukebox so I C an listen to music when CarPlay is not in use , just need to download a radio app now .

    Would it work with MMI RMC? Any VCDS coding to enable AV input?

    If you have an Audi Music Interface socket in the centre armrest , it can be installed , no VCDS coding required. ,

    If have the AMI socket you will need to buy an AMI to RCA lead see pic

    you chose "external input" on the MMI media settings to select CarPlay

    Yes, I do have an AMI interface. Hmm, worth a try.

    Is this the one you've got? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073GZT9...I151BE54Z1BOHD

    Yes that's the one , it took a week to arrive, comes with instructions as well.

    today was just to make sure it works , will do proper install at the weekend - will put the CarPlay box in the glovebox and run the cables to the armrest centre console and the power cables to fuse box on the passenger side using a switched live.

    the Lightning cable the goes from the iPhone to the CarPlay box , but it doesn't charge the iPhone - to remedy this you can buy a double adapter so one goes into the CarPlay box and the other into the cigarette lighter in the centre armrest.

    How does the handsfree work once you use this CarPlay?
    Do you make and receive calls via CarPlay?
    Do you still pair your phone via bluetooth?
    How did you wire the microphone? The cabin MIC is no longer in use, right?
