Apple car play is the most annoying thing I’ve had in a car since I used to give this twat a lift to college 25 years ago.

It’s forever taking me away from my radio screen with message alerts then brings up the last track I was listening to before I got in the car and not returning to the DAB station.

Talk about overkill and no real thought about usability.

This isn’t a step forward in technology and isn’t any safer for people on the roads

I don't think it will work with andriod. Apple only.
Wow this is cheap !
Available in Uxbridge - but I don't need one
Got one of these. Decent stereo but car play (still) needs improvements. WhatsApp has just been added which is good

I haven’t used this car stereo but can’t you download an updated firmware from somewhere online?

I have downloaded unofficial firmware for a Ford Sync 3 stereo and it works great now.
A number of units still available in NI.

I worked at Halfords in the past, i'd never buy ex-display, audio things get hammered by kids [and those who act like kids] who think its funny to crank it upto full then run off

Interesting, £90 but not a smooth UI and he says he uses a pioneer head unit now in the comments. But good to see alternatives : )

They do come with a 12 month warranty, good point though make sure your unit works perfectly or just return it.
I managed to grab Eincar car stereo with gps, reverse camera, usb and microsd card slot for £38. Saw few time on Amazon warehouse recently too Reverse camera went bad after few months, contacted Amazon and got £15 refund. Bought new reverse camera for £9. Apart that everything fine.

Suitable for Android (CD-AH200 cable required)
Voice recognition for Android
I’ve had a couple of crashes over the year but out of the 100s of times I’ve used it, it’s been great.
ps works with android/usb sticks etc but only for music I think.

Buy an Android Auto compatible device.

You'll have access to all the features and it works very well.

Don't use Pioneer's AppRadio app as it's very limited and poor in terms of features.

I purchased a developer created offshoot via XDA a number of years ago when I had a Pioneer AppRadio. I was able to fully mirror my phone on the unit as opposed to just a few apps.

There is now a rootless version:

play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mars.area51.arunchainednr


If an Android Auto device is too expensive, then an AppRadio 3 or 4 will suffice and you can buy the above app which will fully mirror your whole phone.

Edit: This Pioneer model is compatible with the app I mentioned.

Anybody used this with mirror link?
I always find it bonkers how much these things cost. Think I'd get a basic stereo with a line in, and mount a cheap tablet in front of it with various music apps and video apps, could double as a big screen gps too.
I have one reserved at Halfords Charlton southeast london which was kept behind glass. Decided against it for extra cost connected to installing it. If anyone wants it, message me and I’ll give you my reservation number.

sadly car play is laggy no matter the device because it is implemented like VNC

These are more superior the pioneer and only £140 delivered on eBay. They are genuine VW and run both Apple CarPlay and android auto. You however must have a VAG group car as the facia is only made to fit them grind genuine VW.

What are these on eBay? Had a quick look and could not find anything. Thanks in advance.
Stupid question but how do you know which vehicles this will fit?

Tom go to the non ex display radio and you can type in your reg plate
I’ve had one of these fitted in my TT it’s brilliant it would be nice if it had actual buttons but it does the job. Car play is amazingly simple and user friendly I don’t understand any one saying it’s the worst thing they’ve had in their car it’s a must for me now.
