    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.

    Bought for a 2017 Audi A1 (along with the reversing camera)

    Initially a little nervous about installing, but the instructions are clear, and there’s a great installation video to explain / demo the steps required.

    Only issue that I experienced was the jumper settings on the box itself – however a quick ticket to ask for help on the support portal, and it was resolved. (For anyone reading this, there’s a switch set on the back of the box, and you’ll need to press the reset button)

    Once the settings were correct, CarPlay started to work.

    Phone will now connect automatically, and will show CarPlay, without messing with cables.

    With a reversing camera fitted, shows the wheel lines, and a super clear view out of the back. (Takes a while to route the cables, but take your time, and it’s fine).

    For anyone looking for an upgrade, don’t hesitate, buy this – you don’t need expensive installation – quite possible to do it all yourself.

    Well worth the investment!

    A superb bit of kit, just a bit fiddly to install. No reflection on the kit itself, it’s just undoing the existing leads which can be tricky. That may be because my car is pretty old though – 2011 Audi A1.

    I used the instructions and the video, and raised a couple of questions via the online chat which were quickly responded to by someone who clearly knew their stuff, so the support is there if you need it.

    I was expecting the touchscreen to be a bit substandard, but it’s good! The screen responds quickly to a prod.

    So for the money, it’s a massive upgrade to an 11 year old car to have the latest tech. Really happy with the outcome.
