Car Model : Audi A1 2013, non NAV model.
Compatible with almost every Audi produced after 2009
* Certain models with factory fitted NAV, will may need different product.
Used parts: ADA1_CATK
Operation video from previous installation - on Audi A1 2015
Wired CarPlay / Wired Android auto
USB3.0 extension port installed below climate control dash.
Why & How ?
Both CarPlay & Android Auto grants NAV with latest map, via Google / Apple Map and Waze.
Not to mention that media players like Spotify / iTunes / Audible / and those Digital Radio / podcast apps.
Most of Audi vehicles missed out CarPlay and Android Auto till 2015, and certain models started to receive it
after 2018 with new body model
Hence the update / upgrade from Audi was never an option and safe to say It won't be available
in the future either.
With our integration product,
All of those can be integrated into the existing audio setup, without any change nor removal.
CarPlay & Android Auto will be installed as form of an 'external device' that attaches to the headunit.
It is an aftermarket product hence doesn't work exactly same as the factory fitted one in current Audi models.
Having said that, it will only play sound via AUX (external media input) and won't do fade in / out.
Nor sync with voice command function button on the steering wheel.
And will not create separate menu / icon within MB's original interface.
However It still uses the same audio screen, control knob & button pad, and provided full function of
CarPlay / Android Auto.
Without costing existing functions / features in the car to go obsolete.
Both CarPlay & Android Auto will work
with control pad and dial knob.
Press and hold of MEDIA button
will switch the display mode between
CarPlay / Android auto and MMI radio.
We install dedicated USB input for the CarPlay / Android Auto.
As the original one in the vehicle is for Mercedes' original Media interface and the whole USB function will go obsolete.
Like in photo, USB3.0 extension with flush mount port will be installed
and connecting your phone will not only initate CarPlay / Android auto
but also charges the phone as well.

CarPlay / Android auto Module : Contains CarPlay / Android Auto License and dedicated chipset
Video Interface Module : Transfers the image generated from Module box, to audio screen of the car.
Certain products of ours have both modules merged into one.
Cable loom : Literally those cable / connectors needed for installation.
They will connected between those 2 and also audio headunit in the vehicle.
USB Extension Cable: Used for creation of Female USB input (flush mount) on desired location.
External Mic* : Used for Voice command via siri or Google Assistant.
If you are using Wireless CarPlay, certain devices will use this Mic for phone call also.
Also, certian device of our unit will not need external mic at all,
as It will 'wake up' the original Mic for voice command.
