While the unit (CarPlay Head unit) is inactive, the original video signal is passed unchanged and your car works as before.
After activating the CarPlay Head unit, the CarPlay unit video signal is shown on the display instead.
When you reverse the car while using the CarPlay system, the system will automatically switch to the camera without manual operation.
You can easily switch back and forth between the box and your original head unit. (TIPS: Press and hold the “Menu” key to switch the system)
Using the CarPlay Head unit is optional and should be seen as an add-on and not as a replacement.

Delivery took six days to the UK. I was impressed with the build quality of the unit, it feels sturdy. It took me under an hour to install, the hardest part was removing the existing stereo trim. As others reported glare from the screen, I fitted an anti glare screen protector (£2 from eBay) which helps a lot. CarPlay with iOS 13 works very well via both a wired or wireless connection. Siri works perfectly, and the microphone volume seems fine. The audio volume is slightly quieter than the CD/radio, but not by much. Overall I am very pleased with it, CarPlay makes my car feel 10 years newer.
I will give it four stars overall, firstly because the steering wheel forward/back track buttons do not work, despite a previous answered question on this page saying they do. Secondly, I find that music tracks stutter/pause occasionally when using either wired or wireless connection. But I have searched for this issue online, and it seems other people with different systems are also experiencing it, so it may be an issue with CarPlay or iOS rather than this unit. If they can fix these issues with a software update, I would give it 5 stars. And also I agree they should include a manual, or a more professional installation video.

Installing the unit was not that hard, I have never done anything like it and was done in two hours I closing routing the cable to the armrest where my phone sits. A short manual would have been welcome but I managed without it as well.
The unit works well, switching between the CCC and the Android system works smoothly. The volume is more than enough to play music loudly. Google Assistant/Siri is accessible from the steering wheel button. Other features are accessible via either touchscreen or the iDrive button (you pick).
The split screen functionality is really cool so you can navigate with Google maps and have Spotify on the right to easily check and manage your music.
I found only a few drawbacks. One was the missing manual, the other ones are with the screen itself. The screen has quite a glare and when weather is a bit bright it's very hard to see the screen. I turned the brightness up to 100% but to no avail. I do see that the screen can be brighter but it seems to switch to a lower brightness shortly after setting 100%. The glare I did fix with a screenprotector with anti glare coating, this fixes the problem for the most part but alas not entirely.
If there is a way to set more than 100% brightness I'd love to hear it as the screen does have that mode...
Very responsive and the interface is very clean and useful, Andriod Auto is a dream to use and the factory sound and phone audio is exactly as it was with the new unit. I can't seem to enable wireless android auto but that is not a major issue for me. Please check out this forum trail for assistance with any help before and after installation:
Great product (for the price). My only complaint is that the screen is very reflective and you can't adjust the brightness.
Recieved the unit within 3 days (Netherlands) in perfect order. Instalation is easy. The only problem was that i had no audio on the left speakers. They where quick to help en reacted within 1 day.
Very glad I bought this product, and the staff over at Andream were fantastic when I realized the cheaper model without android was not the one I wanted. I was promptly sent an invoice for the extra 100 or so Euros and the item was shipped and received 5 days later. Installation isn't terribly hard, though it might take an hour or two. Whilst the product does work with the idrive controller, it seems to have limited functionality, and can only flick through some menu items. Sadly Netflix can't be installed either.
I'd love to give it a 5, but for those reasons I think it's a 4 star product. Definitely made the car 10 years newer! I'd recommend to anybody. Looks the business.
received the radio in good order. looks sturdy and a lot larger image than original. I think it is strange that there is no description for assembly, but I did receive this after contacting the supplier in the form of a pdf. after placing I am very satisfied with the image, speed and sound. all steering wheel and button controls work as before. this radio is definitely worth my money.
I’m really pleased with this product. The delivery only took about a week and the staff have been brilliant. It was very easy to install and works great. To be critical it would be perfect if only the tracks would skip with the steering wheel controls, the volume works with the steering wheel and also the voice button just not the up and down, despite this I would highly recommend. Thanks (The only reason it wasn’t five stars is due to the up and down button non-compatibility otherwise it would have been five)
Screen fits perfect, WiFi CarPlay works perfect, Android Auto with cable works pretty good. No installation instructions included, but still straight-forward to install, as long as you remember to relocate optical bus connector from original radio headunit connector to supplied connector. I had one connector in cable harness that I don't know what's the purpose of that is (4-pin male). Everything works still perfectly.
I also bought a tailgate handle with reverse camera, but it won't fit and customer service refuses to accept the fact that the switch in handle is 5mm too high, even though I've sent multiple pictures. I'm a car electrician/mechanic myself, so I'm pretty sure I know what I'm talking about.
Very happy with this product and the seller. delivered fast
