The Logic 7 stereo in my 2013 Mercedes Benz SL550 sounded great, however, it was lacking the convenience of Apple Carplay and Android Auto. I installed the UNAVI system in the car last weekend and I'm impressed with the quality of this device and the wiring harnesses. The only issue I had during installation was adjusting the DIP switches. I was told by UNAVI customer service that the device would arrive with the correct DIP switches thrown, however, I had to change one switch setting to get the video screen to work. Once adjusted, it worked perfectly. One side note, with the mirroring application on the home screen, you can play videos on your dash screen (not that you should while driving). I am a very satisfied customer.
I am confused, does it works on QX30 year 2016?
Main photo shows models 2017-19 and on the side 2015-19.
Ordering parts for my husbands car was tricky, but they were helpful and called to confirm I was getting the right thing.
I tried to save $150 with a cheaper version from china, but no support, wrong instruction video and incompatible sub-board made me return (at my cost). Unavi has responsive support, great video instructions and everything works. Should have saved time and money and done it right the 1st time.
Very, very happy with the end result!! Works perfectly and just as described. Siri takes voice commands over the factory microphone seamlessly and the audio quality is fantastic. All factory functions are maintained. Reverse camera displays just as quickly as it did before the system was installed. My low mileage 2011 E550 sedan has been effortlessly updated with 2023 tech making it basically perfect :)
My only critiques are the install instructions are not super clear nor model specific and it seems you have to switch over to the MB Bluetooth on the iPhone itself for audio on incoming calls to work (this might be user error, not sure).
Words of advice to other W212 sedan owners: you will need to drop the glove box in order to facilitate a permanent mounting position for the box and the wiring harness is bulky which leaves little room to re-insert the factory head unit. Also make sure the fiber cable clips back in place when moved into the new harness, and if you have no audio during testing like I did, roll the fiber and re-insert, doing so solved the no audio issue for me. Lastly, in the first 24 hours of use I'm finding the wireless connectivity to the phone is flawless and see no need for the USB cable in my use case.
I hesitated for over a year about doing this mod, but I'm so glad I finally pulled the trigger and have it installed! If you're on the fence, don't wait, just do it!
Had the UNAVI installed in my 2015 Mercedes ML400 by my local installer. The installation took about 3 hours since center console needed removal to access AMI port . Instalation and was a flawless. The installer was able to plug into the AMI port without a dangling wire and installed a fixed USB port in the console for a very clean installation .In photo attached, the upper USB is OEM Mercede sport, in middle is AMI used by UNAVI and at bottom is new USB port for UNAVI wired connection. The integration with the existing Merceds controls worked as described and uses the existing car microphone instead of adding another mike as other boxes require. Very happy with purchase.
Given the age of my SVU, this could have very well been an OEM implementation. Given that neither the controls nor the screen are designed for this implementation, UNAVI has done an amazing job at integrating technologies. It works perfectly and seamlessly with the OEM infotainment syste without loosing any of its original functions. It does take a littlebit longer to boot the system and a longer still to connect via wifi. But once it all engines go, I can live perfectly with my AA CarPLay. In my family, we use both, and both work very well. Cabless, supports etc. are very carefully thought through. I was very skeptical. Now I have a kit For my Mercedes. I have no hesitations whatsoever. I am from a foreign country. Installations and manuals where a little tricky for me and my installer (we worked together), but after the first installation, we are set to install similar kits in 1-2hrs. Thanx.
Great product! I wish I could find out how to get the Porsche app on my display like the one in your advertisement, but other than that it’s great!
The self installation instructions and installation videos need to be updated but I figured it out and works perfect. Audio quality is not as great playing through CarPlay but I’m able to use the OEM Bluetooth for audio for best OEM sound performance and still use the CarPlay on screen. It has satisfied my needs.
I installed it myself following Unavi’s 2013-2017 Qx60 installation YouTube video and it was cake walk. Pause, play the video and follow it to the T and it was easy to follow. The only gripe I have is the HVAC cable for the climate control on the split end side was very short. I had to tug the cable they supplied and barely got it connected. After installation CarPlay with the factory radio integration was flawless. Audio and ITunes sounds fantastic just like before and no ground noise or feedback. I didn’t take any photos or videos because there’s plenty to see if the same thing on Unavi’s website. Overall, I like it a lot compared to the outdated Nissan navigation system.
If you are a can do person and have the patience to slowly take the dash apart, run wires you can do this yourself. I took my time and it was just a little over two hrs from tear down, install, road test with waze and listen to iTunes. I recommend this kit if you have a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder.
Excellent solution to add CarPlay to my Q50 — I used certified installation which was great. I added the control knob, too, which is extremely useful given the way the touchscreen is oriented. Wired, wireless, the control knob, integrated audio…it just works…exactly as it’s supposed to, like an OEM solution!
AWESOME JUST AS DESCRIBED!
Just installed a couple of weeks ago. So far, very pleased. The videos were very helpful. The system is basically "plug-n-play" and with the accompanying videos installation was straightforward. Works great too! Still maintains all OEM functions and integrates well the OEM features. Great product!
I bought a wireless CarPlay for my 2016 Lexus Rx350. I love it. Works great. I would recommend to anyone
Will that work on 2019 qx60 that’s not originally equipped with navigation. Thank you
