This was not the review I was expecting to leave.
First off, company was real awesome with communication to confirm vehicle brand, model, and year, and shipped very quickly.
Installation: I know NOTHING about working on cars or stereos, but I am somewhat technically-inclined so I thought I could do it. Some reviews said it took an hour. Ok, I can do that. Well, first of all, know your vehicle. For my Infiniti, the instructions are found under Nissan Armada. Second, the YouTube video AND the instruction manual are absolute GARBAGE. Can you make that YouTube video ANY faster or less focused on the actual parts being installed?? Also, there’s no audio. ALSO, the garbage manual contains SCREENSHOTS from the garbage video for visual aids. AND important parts were skipped. Not one point in time does it say how/where to install the 3-pin external speaker. AND that crap did not come with adhesive as pictured (the other type of speaker is pictured and installation shown, not the 3-pin one). So I used duct tape. IIWII. I threaded the cable through like it showed with the other one and pushed it to the side hoping it would be addressed later. (It wasn’t, but it turns out the only place to plug it in was on the CarPlay module itself, so I did end up figuring it out.)
Next glaring omission from both instructions: how the hell to get the OEM radio out to install the iPod cable. ????!!!! It was just magically out in both video and manual. So then I find through googling that I might need another tool I don’t have. WTF. I’ll be damned if I was paying someone else money to do this, especially this far in. So, I said eff this, and removed the whole center console panel where the gear shift is to get a better view of the job at hand. This turned out to be a good idea because I found two screws I had lost 2 hours earlier due to weak magnets on drills…maybe also frustration…Anyway, you have to remove the panel with the 12v socket and the USB inputs to get the OEM radio out and the easiest way to do this is by removing the center. Center is way easy to remove, just pry up and unplug it; the panel has some metal clips that are very easy to pry up without an additional tool and without breaking anything. Start at the bottom. Finally was able to remove the OEM and install the iPod cable.
Ok, I’ve made it this far, I’m ready to start plugging everything in and putting it back together, right? So why is there another cable in the box?!? In both instructions, the USB cable for the phone input was magically installed and not mentioned. Come on man. Here’s the lucky part, every single one of these plugs is different, which means, it’s a big matching game, you just have to find the mate to the plug and stick it in there. Everything should be plugged into something, somewhere. It wasn’t too hard to figure out.
So this whole thing took me four hours (couple of anger management breaks), an external device for Google access, a cordless screwdriver, a little common sense and some prayer, but by god if it doesn’t work beautifully, as advertised, and I am elated with my purchase. 10/10 would recommend and buy again despite the shitty instructions!!!
Team at Unavi is fantastic and the product works great.
I was skeptical and honestly my wife wanted to trade in her 2020 QX 80 because it did not have CarPlay and I was not gonna let that happen so I gave it a shot in this thing is incredible
We have a 2013 Audi Q5 that was just upgraded with CarPlay by Pedro and team at Unavi in Tustin. The system was expertly installed and works great. Very intuitive and much easier to navigate vs the stock Q5 system. My wife was blown away about how much easier it is to use. Nice feature is the wireless connectivity vs always needing to use a cable. I would highly recommend the system to anyone considering this upgrade. Will likely extend our keeping the car another 2-3 years.
Unit works great but the delay on the reverse is quite slow and every now and then the audio output comes from the external speaker even tho it's iPod is selected for audio source. You have to either unplug and plug back your phone or you toggle out of ipod abd back into ipod.
So there any fixes for that and the slow reverse camera transition

No Need to Waste Your Time and Money! Buy Real Local Service and Trust!
ANYTIME, you could buy cheaper CarPlay/Android Auto retrofit products from the largest online stores than Unavi.
However, the biggest issue with these cheap products is their quality or A/S is poor because of almost shipping from China. At the very worst, you can never take to refund or exchange despite defective issue.
They are too far away from you. Even at this moment, so many customers who made the wrong choice are fall in exhausting and painful.
BE CAREFUL CHEAP ITEMS
Most all online stores and marketplaces are flooded with cheap and low-quality aftermarket Android Auto / Apple CarPlay products that ship from China.
Many customers fall victim to the extremely low and discounted prices offered by these vendors.
To make things worse, many of these customers try DIY installations since many professional shops turn down installation inquiries for these types of low-grade products, knowing that there will be issues associated with them.
Some are lucky. There is a chance that these customers find a friendly vendor, a good discount, and also get good customer service. Sometimes, the installation process goes smoothly and the product doesn’t have any issues. Truth is, most of the customers that buy online from these vendors end up with bad service and a bad product, leading to writing negative reviews and wasted time.
While these discounted products are attractive due to the low prices, often times, they are defective from the get-go. They have an unstable connection to your smartphone, which leads to freezing, re-booting, or just a dead unit. This is due to bad quality control measures.
Sometimes, the product does work as advertise but after using it for some time, problems may start to come up after a week or a month of using it. To make matters worse, it is sometimes very difficult to get technical and warranty support from the vendor.
DON'T BOTHER WITH FAKE SUPPORT
Vendors from China are known to simply throw in a single sheet of paper with instructions that aren’t even in English or written in poor English.
There is no real troubleshooting offered for simple issues and problems.
The reality is that these vendors have never been on the front lines. They’ve never been to an American install shop to witness the process that installers go through to ensure a successful installation. They are not here to really see the problems US customers encounter with their products. Their return policies are so limited so getting a refund or exchange is very unlikely.
