    Thrilled that this works exactly as described.I have a 2014 Audi A5 with the usual inaccurate satnav system. I also have reverse camera and all round sensors and was initially told by a Car Stereo fitting company that nothing was available. Audi didn’t even respond to my enquiries.I did the research myself, bought the unit(with advice from Laura at Unique Auto) and had to get it installed by the aforementioned fitting company.I’m getting on a bit so wasn’t prepared to try to fit it myself in case I compromised the whole system.But see comments above and have a go yourself. It’ll save you a lot of money! Excellent pre and after sales support.Given that I was quoted £1500supply and fit for a touch screen retrofit (which fortunately will not work with my car configuration it was’t an option)I think this unit is a very good price.

    Purchased this kit along with the back-up camera for my 2016 A4 S-Line. Took me about 3 hours to install; I took videos to document my process so it’s probably more like a 2-hour install. Everything works as advertised, and having this tech in my 2016 makes it feel like a brand new car. The only issue I had was getting the wireless functionality working, but Unique AD was fast and super helpful with support, and it turned out to be an error I made during bluetooth pairing. Money well spent, and a great company to work with!
