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.
None of the VF Commodore were designed to have CarPlay nor Android Auto.
and they will never receive such update in the future.
With our integration product,
All of those can be integrated into the existing audio setup
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 GM's cars.
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.
However It still uses the original touch screen and sound system.
Both CarPlay & Android Auto will work
via original touch screen.
It will use MUTE button on steering wheel
to proceed to CarPlay / Android Auto.
