    Fantastic accessory!!! My husband bought this kit and fitted in my Audi A1 2012 as my birthday gift. I didn’t even know this is possible and then suddenly my Audi can use all the phone apps on my dash screen! I can listen to music, podcasts while driving also Apple Maps is great! It gives me live updates of traffic! This is an absolutely amazing gift and surprise! Amazing!

    Très simple à installer. L’installation m’a pris une bonne demi journée, le plus long étant de passer le câble de la caméra de recul… qui doit traverser toute la voiture!
    Point négatif : les boutons du MMI ne fonctionnent pas pour piloter le CARPLAY, il est seulement pilotable depuis le volant et la caméra de recul est mal calibrée mais elle permet une bonne vision à l’arrière tout de même.
    Bref je recommande sans hésiter ce kit pour le CarPlay ça envoi votre voiture dans le 21 ème siècle !

    , sauf la partie tactile que je n’ai pas installée car trop compliqué d’arracher l’écran du tableau de bord j’ai préférer reporter cette modification.
