hello everyone, I am one of the 2017 Giulia QV owners who has always dreamed about getting an update for apple carplay.
But we never did as this is the only model year does not offer the option.
I had a friend who is a used car dealer. He recently told me one customer bought him a carplay kit and asked if can install it for him.
It is a 17 QV And it supports wireless carplay!
Here is the photo after installation. Is anyone interested? let me know I have already asked him to order me one.

What kit are you talking about? Does it involve replacing the factory headunit with an aftermarket one? Any links to actual device?

How much and what’s involved? Can’t see it being straightforward...

I’ve had a PM from the OP, thanks @bohuaibohuai, saying it’s an add on box, but I’d like to know what’s involved with fitting it.
Would I need to take the dash apart? Is it a plug in?
Not after detailed instructions, just want to know if an idiot (me) could install it.

ahhh I'm not sure either, he is going to help me to install when it arrives. maybe you can ask him.
I'm still wondering without the cd driver where does AR put the unit at? seems too small to hide behind control bottoms.

Would it do Android as well?

Not sure, haven't gone into it that much. An interesting option if its available, not sure I'd be brave enough to take the plunge..

Don't know anything about them but these guys are doing a plug in kit for EUR330 I believe. Check out their Facebook page.

I read that option as using the original display so would be OK for RHD, but would not be touch screen.

Correct.
Looks like the same as the OP posted. Seems to be an add on box that intercepts the wiring harness and sits between car and head unit wiring. So you can either use the head unit as normal or press the menu button a couple of times and the box takes over and Android Auto or Apple CarPlay kick in using the original screen.

Basically it's a new (touch) screen, and screen integration switching between original and add-on box ......
It's actually been around for years, never been very popular though ;)
