I tired to answer your PM twice, your inbox is full.

Manufacture is Joyeauto as far as I know. Its the same unit Bimmerretrofit sells under their name for $600. It supports IOS 13 and connects automatically in under 3 seconds. The reviews are excellent and the company have many videos on youtube.. check them out!

Thank you.
I have been warmed by local friend that some of this units are not upgradable down the road. Which means either you will loose CarPlay when upgrading you iPhone or will not be able to upgrade your phone.
Can you double check with your sales person ?

Thank you

@sbinshihon you're the man! Thanks for taking the initiative on this!

I've just finished watching a bunch of Youtube videos by Joyeauto and walked away with one major question.... It looks like they make you select AUX before switching to Carplay... does that mean that you can't play for example Satellite radio while in Carplay mode, you can only stream??

Perhaps you can let us know once you receive yours! Thanks again!

I was going to joke and ask if it was installed yet but you practically will have it installed by the time I hit send. Nice work!

So I just finished Installing this unit.. It was quite handful. Moreover, I noticed two main problems after the installation... the backup camera doesn't come up when I put it on reverse! And I cant hear the caller when I make a call with CarPlay!! Very disappointed with those two things now, not sure if I did something wrong. I will have to ask support from Joyeauto. Will report if these issues get resolved.

You can listen to radio or any other source while the screen shows CarPlay.

Yes and how do you update ? Did you clarify with them that they will provide the update at no additional cost ?

I thought there was a setting that selected between OEM rear camera and aftermarket. I could be totally wrong though.

I believe that these units require an external mic.. did it come with one?

Yes, mic problem is solved. I had to turn off NBT Blutooth to be use CarPlay for calls.

Both problems are solved now.. after changing some switches on the device, back up camera works now perfectly. Calling through CarPlay requires NBT Bluetooth to be disconnected.

Also I asked the customer support about future updates, said that there will update so CarPlay will continue to work on this device!

Why do we need the backup camera? The F15 already has cameras. Or are the stock cameras disabled when we add this carplay unit?

Where did you hide the aux mic? Is it visible ? Is it behind the dash?

This unit is not specific for the F15. Its for every NBT equipped car, even cars with 6.5 inch screen. So makes sense to have camera switches..

I route it to steering column, not visible for the driver. Actually, I found you can still use Nbt blutooth with CarPlay so you can skip installing the external mic..
