Carplay (for iPhone)
Hicar (for Huawei mobile phones)
Android Auto (for Android phones, need to download APP)
Yilian (Apple, Android are available, need to download APP)
Baidu Carlife (Apple, Android are available, need to download APP)
Other mobile phone interconnection (various mobile phone interconnection functions that come with the original car, such as Changan, Geely)
Carplay is a more practical product, and people who have used it have rated it well.
Hicar has not been on the market for a long time, and the current market share is very low. Judging from Huawei's official publicity, it may have more functions than Apple's Carplay. From the experience of trial products, I personally feel that Hicar is the only system that can compete with carplay at present.
Android Android car machine, common in old car modification, after-loading machine market, with a large market share
Android Auto is used less by domestic users, and it is not listed here for the time being.
How to install Carplay if the original car does not have Carplay?
in different situations
1. Android car machine / wince car machine, add carplay method
Android car machine is relatively simple, install an APP on the car machine end, and then connect the box to realize Carplay.
If you want to wince car machine, you need to copy the application into the car machine. The method of each wince car machine is different. I won't explain too much here. Inside".
The Carplay box shown in the picture below supports wired/wireless Carplay, wired/wireless Android Auto, Apple screencasting, Android screencasting, and online upgrade. It is currently the most popular product on the market.
Advantages of Carlianyi Carplay Box
a. The price is relatively affordable, and there is still room for discounts in e-commerce activities.
b. Timely maintenance and update, support online upgrade, (compared to the optional wireless Carplay of the original car, the manufacturer will give feedback and update in time after the feedback of this product is sent out, compared to the 4S shop where the person in charge cannot be found, I feel that this product is serviceable still better).
c. There are many supported models, and a variety of cars can be supported. This product can follow you. When you change from Volkswagen to Porsche, you can continue to use it. You don’t need to dismantle the car or anything. Just plug it into the USB port of the original car’s wired Carplay. .
2. The original car comes with wired Carplay, upgrade wireless Carplay
The price I learned from the 4S store before, it turns out that the BMW 5 series and Porsche have installed wireless Carlay at around a few thousand yuan. Other brands can ask the 4S store by themselves. Some 4S stores do not support the installation of wireless.
3. Other system car and machine upgrade Carplay
For example, Toyota Camry, Asia Dragon, Corolla, Honda Accord, Fit, Civic, Volkswagen Lavida, Tiguan, Tourang, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, Cadillac, Porsche and other foreign car brands, most of the car-machine systems of their models can pass the The box is converted to the Carplay system.
The advantages of the box are the same as the above Android to carplay
4. Decoder Carplay Module
There are many similar decoder manufacturers for models that support the original car navigation and cannot install the APP and do not have the Carplay function (the market price is 1000~2000, and the price varies according to the model).
a. Wired or wireless Carplay can be realized without changing the original car screen. In addition, most decoders support functions such as Carlife, Android Auto, Apple screencast, Android screencast, etc.
b. The installation is simple, and the manufacturers of similar products that I have learned so far will configure the wires, as long as they are plugged in with the original car plugs, and there is no need to break the wires.
The more troublesome point is that people who do not have strong hands-on ability of this product need to ask a professional master to install it (the host needs to be removed and the decoder should be installed in the corresponding position of the host).
The above products are the ones that are currently sold on the market, but there are deficiencies. Welcome to add.
Install similar product stability and aftermarket issues
In fact, everyone who makes products hopes to make their own products well/stabilized. I believe that every company has the same idea. Having said that, BMW, Audi and Porsche are all products made by people. It is not necessarily worse than others, the original is just fine.
When we did the wireless Carplay test before, we found that the original car wireless Carplay of a luxury brand is also flawed, but it is rarely found during ordinary use. For some problems found, it takes longer to solve the problem when the original factory reports the problem, and some are ignored.
No matter what kind of product you use, I hope you can use it happily and comfortably, not with a picky attitude. Spending money to buy enjoyment is not to spend money to buy worry, right? In fact, I feel that the retrofit is uncomfortable and can be returned. I believe it is difficult to return the original retrofit.
Carplay is generally a good function, and I hope everyone can use it. It's not easy to code words, don't spray if you don't like it. It is a simple experience to share, and those who are interested can leave a message to exchange.
