Hi Steve. I had one of your INFINITI Carolyn systems installed in my 2017 Q60 the week you guys finally released to the public. I had the install done at your Tustin offices. I wanted you to know I love my system, and can't imagine living without it these days.
Anyways, I wanted do let you know that you will be being contacted by Jill, the service manager at INFINITI/VOLVO Cathedral City (Palm Springs). She has had quite a few customers with interest in a set up like yours. She saw my install today, and immediately asked for your contact info. So be on the lookout for contact from Jill Houska, General Service Manager INFINITI Palm Springs. She is amazing, so please do what you do best, and impress her with your product. Thank you again
Purchased the update module to add Car Play/Android Auto to our 2019 Infiniti QX50. Unfortunately Infiniti didn't add that option until the 2020 model year. This is an update, not a replacement, so it retains the original screen and all original functions (automatic camera views, steering control integration, etc.) and adds Car Play and Android Auto. The installation manual was very thorough, and the biggest challenge for our installer was the car itself, not the Unavi module. The installer also routed the USB cable through the covered center console storage and I added a 90-degree USB adapter (see photos) from Amazon to allow us to close the cover while still leaving the phone cable plugged in. The module uses the iPod input to connect the phone to the stereo system so you retain the original factory options (e.g. satellite, FM, etc.) if you wish to use those. You can even use the original navigation in case you miss the 1990s-era GPS experience. Unfortunately the USB adapter blocks the second USB port, but there is an additional charging port in the large storage compartment. The cover provides a stable place to leave the phone while driving, so I consider it worth the trade-off.
It's not a 100% seamless integration (steering console display shows "iPad" and doesn't have track information, reverse camera will give a brief glimpse of the original OEM navigation before switching back to CP/AA), but given that we were able to keep the original equipment and integrations, and that there really isn't any other option, this is an excellent option to add iPhone or Android features to the QX50.
Do not purchase! I went to two different dealerships to get this installed and the first one (which was one of the dealerships they recommended) was unable to help me because they knew if they installed it it could mess up my vehicle. The second dealership installed it but the screen wouldn’t come on, so they had to take the navigation system overall. I called UNAVI and they said they would refund me 100% if it wasn’t defective. They contacted me back saying they could only refund me 50% because it wasn’t defective. It wasn’t defective? Then why couldn’t anyone help me install it? So now I’m out an extra $324 including the $200 I spent getting the system installed and then uninstalled. Complete waste of money!
Great update to my infinity Q50! The employees were super helpful! Highly recommend.
I had a great experience meeting everybody and they did a wonderful job on updating my Infiniti QX30. Love my Apple play and new dash cam !
My dream comes true! My 2018 Infinity Q70 now has Apple CarPlay. I bought Apple CarPlay for INFINITI Q70 | Android Auto Update Module and installed it by myself on my car. It took me about 2 hours. Unavi provided me an Installation Manual for Professional but I used it successfully by following step by step. The video on their YouTube also is useful.
