What a fantastic find

My 2015 Macan S has been significantly enhanced with the addition of CarPlay, a feature I had long envied in newer models. This update has reinvigorated my affection for my Macan, which, with merely 42,000 miles on the odometer, was overdue for such an improvement.

Initially, I was skeptical about the upgrade but opted to give it a chance. The prompt and helpful interactions with the Korean technical support team, along with Pedro from Orange County, California—who ultimately performed the installation at my residence in the Los Angeles area—alleviated my concerns.

With CarPlay installed, accessing the Macan's PCM system is still possible, but frankly, it becomes almost unnecessary unless there's a need to adjust specific vehicle settings. Conveniently, the system runs via the AUX port, allowing easy toggling back to the PCM when required.

I'm immensely grateful for this device. It has not only enhanced my driving experience but also brought a new level of enjoyment to my time with my Macan.

Good Product

I have had the product installed for about 1 week now. So far the product is working well. I installed it myself. Was not that challenging, however I would not recommend for a novice. The main improvement I would recommend would be a better installation manual / videos and better user instructions.

Hello Dennis,
We really appreciate your input, it really helps us improve. We will share this with out team and if you need anything don't hesitate to contact out customer service team.

2018 Audi Q3 Apple CarPlay installation success

This is a great product and the customer support was excellent! While I am a handy person, I am generally not one to tinker with my car. When I explored UNAVI’s site and found all the detailed videos for how to install the CarPlay unit in my specific car model (2018 Audi Q3), I felt this was something I could actually do myself, and I was able to do it successfully, though with some help from their great customer support. First, their kit is very comprehensive but there are two things they use in the videos that aren’t included and definitely make the job easier, the radio removal keys and some plastic pry tools to get the glove box and AC panel off. I found a reasonably priced kit on Amazon that had both. With those and the needed Torx bits it went reasonably smoothly, though I ran into one big snag in my installation of the unit. I went to install the connection to the headlamp unit on the back of my glove box and the OEM plug had an extra tab on it that the UNAVI one did not, so the OEM plug would not fit into the new UNAVI receptacle. I sent an email off to customer support since it was a weekend so I did not expect an immediate reply and Monday morning I got a reply and a text message that the plug is not needed for my car. I was a little skeptical but it is absolutely true. I was worried I would not the get functionality of the display auto swapping to dark mode when my headlights went on, but it definitely works. I guess that is just some of the little changes that Audi makes over the years that makes it needed in one year of the model but not needed in others. Once I got that direction, everything went together fine after quite a bit of manhandling to cram the unit behind the radio and AC panel. But it did fit with some effort just like the videos said. I was happy about that since I didn’t want to take up what little glove compartment space I had to put the unit in there, which is another option they describe in the installation videos.

The other glitch I came upon but was able to solve with UNAVI’s help was I set up both the wireless and wired connection for CarPlay and while the wired connection was more reliable, they both would not always have the audio working even though the media mode showed the audio was connected. It would work in Google Maps but then my music apps would not work. Another quick text to UNAVI and they were able to solve this problem. All I had to do was disable the audio Bluetooth connection in my car’s Bluetooth settings while keeping the phone connection enabled. Ever since I did that the audio has been working great and I can still make calls using my car’s Bluetooth connection.

I love that my car looks the same as it was before I installed this unit, but it has so much more functionality and no OEM functions have been impaired at all. It is worth the extra money to go with UNAVI over a similar looking, cheaper unit on Amazon, as the product provided is solidly made, works very well, and if you are installing this yourself the customer support is top notch. I have never traded text messages with customer support live before, but it was great. Responses were either immediate or within 5 minutes or less. I highly recommend UNAVI and this Audi CarPlay unit.

2015 Audi upgraded with CarPlay

My 2015 Audi A7 TDI is still in great shape. It has the 3.0 Turbo Diesel that is not available anymore ( Thanks CARB!!) and gets great fuel mileage so I don't really want to replace it just to get new technology. I stumbled across the UNAVI module that keeps the OEM MMI radio but adds Apple Carplay. This was just what I needed. I don't know how they made it work but it does!
Pros- the module comes with all of the cables, wires and parts needed for installation. After installation everything looks stock. The installation was mostly straight forward by watching YouTube Videos. The module does have a USB A plug that you can use as well that also charges the phone while using. Using Carplay vs the OEM navigation system makes sure the maps are always updated when you update your phone. I would think this adds value at resale or trade in.
Cons- there are no written instructions- just QR codes to videos. The installation video ends before you put everything back together, but it is a reversal of the disassembly. However there is a big plug in the back so when you try to slide the radio back in it will not allow the MMI head to slide fully in place unless you manipulate the plug out of the way before reinstallation (It took me a few times to get this figured out). Overall it took me about three hours from start to finish and could have gone faster on a second install since I know what to watch for now. After installation I had a problem getting the module to "read aloud" the text messages but after texting tech support (you cannot call) they helped me fix a setting in the unit so it works well now. It does not make the screen a touch screen so you still have to use the control knob on the MMI interface, but I wasn't really expecting to make the screen a touch screen. It does take some time familiarizing yourself with the controls to get the hang of how to make the system work- it is a mix hybrid using your own car's Bluetooth and the module Bluetooth (or USB). Give yourself an hour or so with the car parked to get comfortable with all of the settings before you decide to drive and figure it out on the road.
Overall I am glad that I purchased this product and hope that I can continue to get many more years out of my 2015 A7 TDI. Many states and municipalities now require you to drive "hands free" and this will solve that issue for me.

Features

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.

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.

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.

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.
