It works well, obviously with it being after market it has a few glitches. The only thing negative i can say about it was lack of instruction which made it semi difficult to install but manageable. Proud of final product.
I am excited with the product. I only have one problem, when I use carplay I lose the audio from the car and everything starts to be heard in a small speaker that comes in the kit. that's not nice.
We are sorry the unit is not working out as you expected. One of our tech support team members will be in contact with you to get more info and see what we can do. Also, please make sure you are in AUX mode on the Nissan side for sound as well. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review with us, we truly appreciate it, it helps us improve.
Bought the 2019 Nissan Leaf (to replace the useless, brain dead unit that came with my s-type trim). Took about a week to get to me, on St. Thomas in the middle of the Caribbean. Installed the unit myself, took about an hour. Watched the install video and read the PDF install manual first, make sure you do that as that well - will make a big difference on how smoothly the install goes.
Ran into a couple of self-induced problems (bent pin on a connector, wrong bezel screws), the second one caused the LED on the home button to stop working. Everything else worked fine. After talking to Tech Support about the LED they sent me a replacement unit, no questions asked!
Pay attention the the screws you need to use - they give you screws that you'll use in place of the OEM screws you remove. It's pretty clear in the PDF manual (not the video) which ones to use where, but you have to look closely. Make sure you unpack everything and lay it out first, to make sure you're using the ones they want you to use in the places they want you to use them in.
The unit works very well, looks great, and gives me all of the functionality I was looking for. Very happy with the product, the company,
I had serious apprehensions about installing this unit, especially after seeing that I would have to open up the factory touch screen!! YIKES!!!
Actually, if you're even just somewhat mechanically inclined, YOU CAN DO IT! Just GO SLOW and make sure you WATCH THE VIDEOS and pause as you go...I sadly had to contact customer support and (of course!) if I had just simply continued with the video and followed the instructions my "problem" would have fixed itself, as I hadn't completely followed the directions yet.
This kit works just like any factory Android Auto would, but with a couple *tiny* quirks, both of which really don't bother me, because the alternative would be no Android Auto at all. The main quirk is when you're in Android Auto mode, if you want to do anything with the climate control that required the touch screen (changing requested themostat temp, for example), you just need to quickly go back into OEM mode and do your thing...the music, or nav, or whatever will keep doing its thing, and when you're done you just go back to the Android Auto node if you prefer to be there (in maps, Pandora, or what have you.)
The other quirk was that to get the audio I have to have the OEM mode set to iPod mode (or AUX mode in other models)...not exactly an intuitive setting if you're an Android guy, but once you set it there, you forget it UNLESS you want to listen to the radio or XM or whatever other mode you have. Just know that when you go back to Android Auto (or presumably Carplay) you need to re-select iPod as your audio input.
NOT A BIG DEAL, but a small step that isn't necessary in an OEM setting...having said that, I'm very happy with what I have. I bought a 2020 Nissan Armada for $29K and after adding this module and a couple other goodies I am under $30K to have the EXACT same vehicle a friend bought with Carplay/Android Auto for over $70K!!! That's a win!
So, to wrap up this lengthy review: the GOOD:
You get Carplay/Android Auto where you couldn't possibly have it at all. It behaves (for the most part) the same...just a couple more button pushes in certain instances.
The BAD: There is no way to sugar-coat it, this is downright SCARY to tear into your vehicle and then go even crazier and open up the factory touch screen!! BUT, it really wan't very hard at all, and so long as you are not reckless it's really not bad. If you're mechanically inclined or have a friend who is, don't hesitate and jump in and do this. Just go slow, be careful, and follow the directions...even us mere mortals can do it! I've very glad I did!
Thank you Unavi for a great product! I'm very satisfied! The technician from Unavi installed the new CarPlay for me and explained everything. Both control and connection are very easy and everything looks great. 100% satisfaction, this is the best thing I could have done for my car.

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.

Control with a word or a touch.
CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — touchscreen or voice command. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.
※ Android Auto features Google Assistant
Maps ; Let your iPhone show you the way.
The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. And now with a more detailed map, turn‑by‑turn spoken directions, and immersive 3D experiences, it’s easier than ever to get where you need to go. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favorite restaurant, or looking for nearby gas stations.
※ Available Google Maps, Waze, etc.
All your music. Beautifully arranged.
Access all your content from your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car's built-in controls. Search by artist, album, or song. See what's playing and what's up next. You can ask Siri to play your favorite song by Arcade Fire, act as your personal DJ, or stream one of more than 100,000 live radio stations.
※ Available Spotify, Pandora, etc.
Messages ; Reading & writing is now listening and dictating.
Siri can read, reply, and send text messages for you, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. Just say "Siri, tell Blair I'll be there in 20 minutes," and it's done. CarPlay can also play audio messages through the car's speakers or external speaker.
Calendar ; Stay on top of your day when you're on the road.
A Calendar app gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you're on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tab to get directions or dial in, using your car's speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Phone ; The road is calling.
Make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemail. Siri can help you do all of these things. All you have to do is ask.
