    Hi Folks!

    Just wonder if anyone has retrofitted this kit

    Audi CarPlay Kits Archives - Unique Auto Developments

    It apparently works with built in mmi systems and supports steering wheel and centre console buttons with MMI 3/4G . RMC only supports centre console buttons but still integrates directly with MMI native interface. I noticed that itís available on AliExpress for about 80£ less but I would be afraid that possible return would be a problem.

    AliExpress does not support PayPal only CC. Return shipping would be pricey also.

    I decided to chance it with Aliexpress and ordered a wireless CarPlay compatible with RMC. Seller gave me 20% discount.

    I will post pictures and update once fitted.

    Iíve seen similar kits fitted before and not to put a downer on it the sound quality was pretty poor and thereís so much to take apart and installed correctly. Itís essentially bypassing the MMI unit and displaying CarPlay on the rmc screen.
    Iíve had the rmc and the MMI high and both systems integrated well with my iPhone as an iPod and through Bluetooth. Not sure why there is such an obsession with getting CarPlay. Iíve got it in my current car and donít use it at all as the factory MMI works really well with my iPhone.

    Hopefully, it will work well. I want spotify, waze, google maps, tune in to work directly on the screen without a need to touch the phone.

    Just remember this does not integrate with the DIS so you wonít get directional information for nav and street names. Also the mic needs to placed properly, around map lights or a-pillar,if you want to chat while on the move as the MMI Bluetooth will not work while phone is in CarPlay mode.

    This actually integrates with MMI directly. It uses native MMI MIC and supports MMI control buttons on the steering wheel and the central console.
