Why & How ?
For Land Rover 2009 - 2011
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 Land Rover / Range Rover models came with CarPlay / Android Auto till 2019.
and later was available for 2017 and onward models with optional activation package.
Hence pre-2017 models will most likely not going to receive same update whatsoever.
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 LR / RR 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.
However It still uses the original touch screen and sound system.

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.
Both CarPlay & Android Auto will work
via original touch screen.
It will activate / use existing NAV button
to proceed to CarPlay / Android Auto.
Which will result the Factory NAV to be only
accesible from screen.
