I now have Carplay

Pretty cool! I see the maps on my console and it works just like carplay. Great effort.

Great install by company

I live local and was able to pick up system at unavi and thought I'd have them install on site. I made an appointment and all went well! Waled to local restaurant and had breakfast and then to local auto museum and when leaving got a text from Jimmy the installer teling me the car was ready. He was great! He went through system with me and I found it was user friendly and have been happy with the update since.

Great update to older car.

2016 is not too old but back then the system was not so advanced. Really happy with the module for my car and it just brings the system up to date in a big way! Very user friendly!

The product just works right out of the bat

The product is of really good quality and the shipment was delivered on time without any hickups. The support was great but the documentation for the product needs to be improved with right videos, needed help from UNAVI support which was just AWESOME!!! Love this product so far!

UNAVI Super Capacitor Review

Overall I give the Capacitor a thumbs-up! I drive a 2019 Nissan Armada and I have been looking for ways to save gas because I do a lot of towing. I was skeptical at first but I would have to say it works.

Gas Mileage:

I have probably seen about 2 miles per gallon difference in mileage. I say probably because it is difficult to do an exact apples to apples comparison to mileage prior to the capacitor because I do not tow 100% of the time. I am assuming all things equal with monitoring mileage over a longer length of time which includes random towing.

Car Audio:

The OEM sound system is already pretty good considering it is by BOSE. I would say there is better sound after installing the capacitor…. but would I buy the capacitor for this purpose alone? Probably not. The difference is noticeable but not life changing, in my opinion. This is not to say the change wouldn’t be significant in other vehicles so definitely check out what other reviewers have to say about audio performance.

Acceleration:

This is where the capacitor really caught me by surprise. I immediately noticed that the car idled so much smoother…. the fluctuation in the idling is no longer even noticeable on the tachometer. I feel zero hesitation when accelerating and there is an increase in power. Well, there is either more power or the fact that the engine has no hesitating during an acceleration event I couldn’t say, but it feels faster which means it tows better.

Battery Life Extended:

Too soon to tell

If you spend a lot of time driving or do a lot of towing I highly recommend the capacitor. If your only interest is to improve audio sound there might be better alternatives in this price range. It will be interesting to see how long the capacitor can hold up under the hood next to a hot engine. It feels very well made but that is a tough environment for any type of power source.

As a complete package for all that this thing does I wouldn’t hesitate purchasing it especially at the sale price, I do not think you would regret it.

Awesome

Ordered CarPlay for my Porsche Boxster and they were able to install the next day!!!

Very responsive customer service and of course the product has been flawless.

Great System

I've only been using it for a few days, but the set up is easy and once you have linked your phone it fires up right away. I would NOT recommend doing this on your own. I watched the technician take apart my. entire dash and was fascinated by how everything connected. This is a high end designed component and there were 6 different wiring harnesses involved in the connection. I am pretty handy when it comes to things but I was glad to have someone else do this for me.

The product works flawless

I don’t recommend this for everybody, but, I watched her YouTube videos. I looked at it and said I could do this, well after about an hour and a half. I did it. It worked great and I’m proud to say I saved the fortune by not having to pay an installer

Unavo install for Dr Jay

Excellent installation, unit works perfectly and seamless once u learn how to use it. Very clean job would highly recommend tell them Dr. Jay sent you…

Great Product & Functionality

Really Happy we chose Unavi !! US based customer support is very important to us. It's like having a brand new car!

Great product!!

Love the ease of the install and getting the use of CarPlay in my newly acquired Mercedes GLC 300 is an essential upgrade!! Works great!

Works perfectly if you take your time, it’s easy enough to install by yourself. Do not buy any of the cheaper ones from Amazon. They don’t work they have no customer service help. Unavi is the way to go !!! They even called me before shipping the product to make sure it would fit my vehicle perfectly and it does. This is the first product review. I have ever done simply because it’s such a great product.

Excellent Carplay Interface - 2018 Nissan Armada

This is an excellent Carplay conversion. This was the upgrade we wanted, and makes Carplay conversion work seemlessly. The quality of sound through the car speakers works so well. The instructions, and the wiring harness work so well. The only tricky part is the screen, but being patient and taking your time it is not difficult. I had one issue with sound, and customer service helped me troubleshoot the issue. It turned out one plug in was not connected and then everything worked perfectly. Great customer service and product.

Moderately Easy Self Install

Perfect solution for a car without CarPlay. They provide YouTube videos for the step by step installation. I did have one difficulty and tech support walked me through the solution quickly. Turns out that my model vehicle has 4 different interfaces and the video was specific to one of the 4. Unavi send every wiring harness needed to complete the installation. The actual box appears well built and sturdy. Have been very happy how wireless CarPlay starts up seconds after I start the engine. I highly recommend the company and it’s products

Infiniti QX 60 2019

This system works great. Installation was very easy. I have purchased three systems from China and none of them work. Don’t waste your time this company. It’s great recommended to everyone don’t go anywhere else. I give them A+ Customer service are amazing. They help you video chat step-by-step to make sure this system works great for you. Thank you again.

Unavi 2024 install in 2014 Cadillac ELR

The system works GREAT. Phone in support was super helpful. If you enjoy doing projects on your car, it's pretty straightforward. However, my instructions consisted of just a series of pictures, nothing written and no video instructions (reason for 4-stars) for my particular model of Cadillac( the ELR, which is kinda rare). For most people would be installing in a CTS or SRX, there is a video, and they would not have this problem.) Mounted Unavi unit up behind CUE unit, where there was more room as opposed to the side, near the glove box where there was very little. Be conscious of which blue LDVS cable you unplug because there are TWO located behind the CUE, one is not used (see pic). For an amateur like doing the install meticulously, it took about 3 hours. Now that it's done, the system works perfectly. I'm really glad I took on the install and saved the money by not having it professionally installed.

Actually Worked!

I was skeptical at first, but after installing the module in my 2015 Cadillac Escalade, it worked without issue! I ended up installing it myself, which was actually easy after watching some videos online on how to take my dash apart. Once apart, the module is plug and play.

UNAVIUSA Pathfinder platinum 2014 retrofit

So this was a really great experience- there we knowledgable people that were easy to get in touch with……. I am impressed with the product- and wish i had done this several years ago for my wife….. the Nissan system is a bit clunky and i am not crazy about all the audio Via Bluetooth- but once i was able to get it up and running- i had very few issues with the CarPlay system….and the ones that are there are pretty easily navigated!!

CarPlay for VW's

I purchased the UNAVI device designed for the 2015 VW Golf Sportwagen. I researched about 5 different brands and decided upon this brand. I think this brand is excellent and I really like it. I purchased the unit and installation took about 1.5 hours. This was the dismantling the glove box, switching the wire harnesses and putting the car back together again. NOTE: If you are not good at working on cars, I would have this installed professionally. I did run into a LOT of issues activating the unit. This took a long time, over 6 hours of personal time. The trouble, for me was frustrating, but this is where the tech support was phenomenal. They all stood by me and their product. I got to be on first name basis with one of the support guys; Jimmy. All the tech support personnel worked with me and never quit. We discovered that my first unit had a bad circuit board. They replaced it immediately and with some more support work we then determined the version was an issue. We updated the system version and then it worked as expected. I find this device works with my phone; both hard wired to the phone, but wireless as well. It works wonderfully. The only remaining issue is that my backup camera does not work, unless I leave the CarPlay software. I have a manual transmission and this seems to be the issue, whereas if you have automatic it works. This is NOT an issue with me. In spite of my “complaints”, in this review, I only brought up all this because this company DOES follow up with their customers better than I would have given, considering they were dealing with my frustration. I would recommend this unit and this company.

Porsche Macan

the unavi system was installed correctly and everything works, the only difficulty was dismantling the dashboard and installing the box.

This is great

Put this in my pathfinder. It’s amazing. I wish I had discovered this earlier. Love the functionality with the open system. Only gripe is you can’t see the temperature adjustments when changing them. But it’s simple to go back to the oem side and change it and then switch back to CarPlay. Worth every penny.
