    just wanted to report that I’ve had the carplay standalone unit fitted having bought it from AliExpress and am seriously impressed with it for the money.

    I’ve known of several people having issues which are either compatibility or faulty units but mine seems to work exactly as expected.

    Bargain for the £200 or so it cost.

    just search Audi A4 carplay. Make sure you get the correct one for mmi or non mmi.

    A4/A5 share the same entertainment systems (as well as a large number of other bits and pieces), so yes, one will work on the other assuming you are talking about same generation.

    So... I assume you control via the steering wheel buttons and voice control. Correct? If voice control, how do you activate that and not the MMI audio control? I can't find a yootoob video of it...

    It effectively becomes an extra source. You engage it by holding down the nav button.

    When the carplay module is selected you scroll through its buttons using the mmi controls. You can select the mic icon and use that to speak when inside any particular app or you can press the mic button on the steering wheel and then talk via the Audi mic.

    If you hold down the nav button again for three seconds or select the car icon it reverts back to the normal Audi MMI gui and the mic then works in the native way.

    Hi, did you fit this yourself? Was it fairly straightforward? (and I assume the seller is US based, having just Googled it?)

    Seller is China based.

    You are probably looking at RSNav which is a US reseller.

    Very straight forward to fit. Remove two components then plug and play.
