R35Audio is pleased to announce the release of Apple Carplay upgrades to for EBA (2016-2018) GTR’s who missed out on the update given to the later 2018+ model GTR’s.
What’s more, there is no hardware to install. No trim to take apart or wiring to do. THIS IS A SOFTWARE UPGRADE via your SD-Card slot, which will upgrade your AV unit with the latest OEM firmware, 2020 maps, and inject Carplay into your system like an OEM 2018+ model.
Everything works like factory after the update (including the factory OEM reversing camera). You just get a new icon on your main menu called Carplay which will switch into Carplay mode. Once in there, you can set off music playing from Spotify, or your favourite Carplay app, and then go back into the OEM screens as normal.
Don’t forget you will get access to Carplay’s choice of approved apps like WAZE navigation, with its excellent Police and speed camera monitoring, access to SIRI for voice control of the Carplay system etc.
All via touch screen. No remote controls or laggy dials. Just like the OEM 2018+ GTR’s have.
My service includes :-
- Sending out of a new Sandisk Ultra 120mb/s High Quality 32GB SD-Card in the post with the upgrade pre-loaded (no need for massive downloads, unless you are an international customer and prefer that option to save shipping time)
- Also included is a High Quality SD UHS-I USB Card Reader, for you to send me your unique ID file for generation of a licence code unique to you. Then use the same card reader to put the licence key back onto the SD card to activate your Carplay system
These alone are a value of £25 and reduces the risk of download corruption and gives you the ability to transfer files from your PC to the SD-Card.
If you are an international customer (outside UK) then I can offer a download option which allows you to transfer the software onto your own SD-Card. Please ensure your SD-Card is 32GB and high quality.
BEFORE YOU ASK – I DON’T HAVE A CARPLAY OPTION FOR CBA or DBA 2008 – 2015 CARS I’M AFRAID.
