  1. Roger S

    Unit as described, fairly easy to fit, good aftersales support.

  2. Eileen Furr (verified owner)

    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.

  3. Chris L (verified owner)

    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!

    Overall, a great add to my B8.5 A4 that totally transforms the car. The install is a bit intimidating, but only because of the number of steps. The addition of the backup camera and touchscreen obviously creates more work but are totally worth it.The build quality of the unit and the wiring harnesses is very solid, an important point when you are installing this inside your dash. Once done, the system works exactly as expected, pure CarPlay with integrated wheel controls and handsfree Siri.Only slight miss is wireless connection can be dicey if you have left you car for a short period. Because the unit does not power off with the ignition but waits until the entire car powers down; an odd time-out situation can sometimes prevent re-connection. But overall its an amazing piece of kit. Highly recommended.

    Installed this on my 2015 Audi Q5 TDI here is the USA. The shipping was blindingly fast coming from England. Everything came neatly packaged. Nothing damaged. Instructions do tend to skip some steps but if you search YouTube and this site, there are fantastic videos that will assist in the install. Customer support was second to none. They were quick to email back and reasonable with solutions to issues that arose due to my ham-fisted approach to installing things. Some helpful tips I have from the install:
    1. Be ultra careful with the ribbon wire of the screen overlay. If you yank on it to pull your excess wire through the dash, it will break.
    2. Don’t unplug the hazard light switch or you’ll trigger an airbag warning light that can only be erased if you have an OBD11 scan tool.
    3. Buy an OBD11 scan tool. You wont regret it. Not absolutely necessary for this install, but as you unplug your head unit and climate control, fault codes will be triggered due to temporary loss of signal to the various modules. You can easily clear these with an OBD11 tool. It will not trigger a check engine light, but there are other reasons to have that tool if you own an Audi.
    4. I recommend planning to install the carplay module in the space above your glovebox as it’s just a bit too tight behind the MMI unit.
    5. It is all plug and play. Very simple when you’ve located the video tutorials.

    If you are apprehensive about buying this, don’t be. Its a fantastic addition to make an older car feel new again. The buttons on the steering wheel work, the MMI buttons by the shifter work. It finally allows B8 Audi owners a skip track option from the steering wheel! Worth every penny spent. I highly recommend.
