very good product
Installation was easy with some tools and helpful YouTube videos. Using the manual it took a bit of figuring out how to have the setup of the toggle switches for your specific model. The touchpad on the car does not work very well with this unit. The movement on touchpad does not translate with the unit and it is extremely annoying after paying double of what other units you can find on alibaba. Not that those units don’t have their share of problems. For almost 700 you’d want it to work flawlessly with your car make and model.
We are sorry the unit is not working out as you expected. We can have one of our tech team contact you to offer some tips on how to make it easier to use. The Lexus joystick seems to be an known issue even with OEM use as we have heard from customers before they install the system. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review with us, we truly appreciate it, it helps us improve.
Please see our tips on using/adjusting the joystick:
very good product
I installed this yesterday and it went very well. Tried it out and it fills out the Lexus screen perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it wasn't just wired apple carplay, it is also wireless. I missed that when I ordered, but this makes it even better than expected. Great addition to a car that we plan on keeping for a long time.
If you follow the instructions (I’d suggest looking at video and then looking at pdf) you will be fine…pretty easy installation!

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.
