Apple carplay android auto add-on box

Hi all

Found these add on boxes on aliexpress.

It seems you need the reverse camera module and then another module to add the carplay

€ 219,27 Liandlee Parking Camera Interface
https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/cpKhHWh6

And

€ 117,88 Lisislee Carplay Box Connect Camera interface Display Upgrade Original Display For AppleAndroid
https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bM6zXnsU

I've emailed the seller for details.

Anyone tried it ?

Be interesting to know if this works, I'm looking at pulling the trigger on a 17 plate Veloce, which doesn't have car play or a reverse camera, two features I'd really like and at this price point would be great.

Actually you need a CAN-Interface that can feed in at least video (better audio too) and a couple of can signals, so you can change from the original headunit to the interface via a long press of a button.
Than you need a second interface that enables carplay or android auto. Plain mirroring is not that good because you would always have to lay you phone down in landscape setting.

There is a company that even provides this as wireless https://www.joyeauto.com/bmw-cic-1-3...play-solution/

unfortunately only for BMW/Audi etc. It should be possible to customize the interface to work with Alfa too

Thanks guys.

I've emailed the seller for more information.

They have come back asking for a close up picture of the screen and a photo of the firmware release the media unit is running.
I'm not collecting my Giulia until Monday so I'll reply next week.

Tempted to take a gamble

Thanks - a one interface wireless carplay solution would be absolutely fantastic.
I'll send them an email in a couple of days as well, when there is some demand they might customize their existing box

Hi,

Thanks your email to Joyeauto Technology. Sorry for delay.

Sorry we don't have the CarPlay solution for Alfa Romeo currently, maybe in future

Cheers

I've bitten the bullet and ordered from one of the AliExpress sellers who is confident it will work. Otherwise they will refund me.
€215 posted plus and import fees

I'll keep this post updated when it arrives

Hi
They didn't ship it for nearly 10 days after order and then refunded me saying it will work with apple car play only.
So back to square one

So does this mean what they are selling will work with Carplay but not Android Auto? Im just looking to add CarPlay somehow.

North American 2017 Giulia owner here and just joined the forum Really wanting a solution for CarPlay that doesn't involve a new ETM or newer Giulia ha ha.

If you do decide to order let us know how you get on with it

Thank you! I will report back if I order it. I need to figure out if I can accomplish the install. Just to verify, the items below are what you a referencing that you ordered (but ultimately canceled) and the seller said would work with CarPlay?

Hi
Yes that's correct. Looks like a straightforward install. All plug and play.

Let us know how you get on.
