    I chose DHL shipping. Should be here within 7 days.

    I asked few more questions and it actually uses aftermarket microphone, not the MMI. Good thing is that it uses MMI controls. It also supports reversing camera. Apparently, it can also do 360 view. Have not seen it though anywhere.

    Here is the installation video:

    My understanding is that the wireless kit I purchased is the only one working with RMC which I have in my car. If you have MMI 3G or 4G it integrates better and uses MMI microphone. You can also get cheaper CarPlay kit which uses lightning cable instead of wireless.

    Pretty cool screen. However, I have bad experience with those android auto infotainment systems. I purchased one for VW CC in the past and I was not happy. It did not fully integrate with the car and steering wheel control. DIS integration was also poor. Analog radio was not working correctly, Bluetooth phone had very bad quality.

    I’m hopeful for CarPlay kit since it elevates existing MMI functionality instead of replacing it. Hopefully I will not regret it.

    So, this is the one that I'm thinking about installing: https://www.seicane.com/car-radio-st...amera-s011006f
    However, it is still not clear to me what/how it does re audio output (they just mention the Aux) as I'm not sure if it needs the separate amplifier (as you would have with the MMI high/3g).

    Let us know how you get on if you order one. I will document the installation process for my kit as well.

    I fitted one of the UK kits to my a6 before Xmas and I'm over moon with it. Took about 1 Hour to fit and works very well with std controls. Even voice button on steering wheel work. As for sound quality, I have been disappointed with my bose system since I got car 2 years ago but now it much better using spotify and car play. Waze works great. Only down side is you get no track info on sash but then again my wife's gti is same. Lack of touch screen is not a problem. Some people complain about £300 cost but I think it's worth every penny.

    The unit arrived few days ago but I only managed to get around it today. I found an issue though. I have an RMC with AMI and need to enable AUX input. I have enabled green menu on RMC but cannot see where will I enable AUX Does anyone know?
