My 2017 Q60S with CarPlay

Thought I would upload some shots of the upgrade I installed running CarPlay and other stuff. So far, everything is very usable in my personal opinion. Touch works great. The spinner in the console works along with the back button. Sounds as good as stock to me, but I don't have the most disconcerting ear.

Its an Android based unit that has an add-on USB dongle that gives it CarPlay and Android Auto. Carplay will work wired or wireless. Android Auto is wired only. I haven't played with Android Auto since Im an Apple guy. But, you can also run it as a self powered Android unit. No phone needed. But in order to get full use that way you need to at least have a hotspot for internet access. It does all the things youd expect from an Android OS. Video in motion, streaming audio and video. Pretty much anything available in the Play store. Oh, it is also supposed to do screen mirroring. Havent played with that yet.


If anyone is interested I can put you in touch with the guy selling these units. Im not part of the sales and don't stand to make anything. I would and have recommended this to my best friend that also has a Q60, FWIW.

It wasn't too bad. Took a couple of hours. I could probably do it quicker the second time around.

Bottom Right is Vacuum/Boost. That's Torque Pro running off of a Bluetooth ODBII unit.

Totally enjoying it! Appreciate the outstand sales and support!

The wireless CarPlay starts and auto connects now like it came with the car.
