    How much did it cost and how long was the installation?

    How is it so far? Still on the fence on having it installed.

    EDIT: backread and saw the cost for the upgrade.

    I'm tempted to buy the wireless dongle so that I can hide it inside the glove compartment.

    *edited. slight OT.

    Hi. I’ve read a couple of reviews of android HU -Carplay capable via dongle from Joying, Stapon and some other from aliexpress and lazada.
    What are good branded aftermarket HU that are Apple Carplay/Android Auto capable? Low to Mid tier models are ok. Budget from 15k-27k.

    Just had it installed by Miko this morning. However, connection needs to be wired.

    How does this wireless dongle work? You put it in the usb port and carplay can connect via bluetooth?

    It still annoys me that Apple Maps can map out a route, but still not have turn by turn navigation. I’ve been wanting to try Apple Maps on Carplay especially on iOS 13 because of the new app layout for it. Grrrrrr.

    iOS13 CarPlay finally has an interface for music player apps so now I can play music files locally saved in my phone via CarPlay.(y)

    I wish there were a way to replace Apple Maps on the home screen dashboard with Waze or Google Maps.

    Yup same here. Hopefully on the next update, they can already integrate it. What I like with ios 13 carplay is that waze still stays on your car's infotainment even if you use your phone, unlike before.
