    Apple Car Play, does anyone know

    I want Apple Car Play in my ‘15 Eco. I currently have the 8.4 w/nav and want to get Car Play installed. Does anyone know if I can install a newer unit that has it, and is it a direct plug and play process?

    infotainment.com has factory units with apple car play. Does the Panasonic Apple CarPlay radio have all the system controls like the factory radio does?

    The Panasonic radio is the factory CarPlay, Yes Everything works just like factory... I purchased everything from 4th gen electronics . The owners name is Ben he gave me 400.00 for my old nav radio and the radio was a couple hundred cheaper than infotainment which is a great company to deal
    With also..

    My truck had accessory switches and the seat controls functioned thru the radio, I had to buy a additional harness apparently cambus capable to get my seats to function again, I purchased the harness from infotainment and then had to do a hard cambus relearn..

    Depending on your trucks equipment pricing should be 800-1000 depending if your radio is a nav radio and you wish to trade it in ....

    You do have to swap the USB hub also, Again whole project is a very easy installation ...

    Yes, the infromation for what vehicle control that appears in the 8.4 radio come from the BCM. The only part # difference is whether the radio has built in Navigation (UAQ) or doesn't (UAS).
