    Carista CarPlay / Android Auto App?

    I had a thought yesterday whilst using Carista - if it had a CarPlay / Android Auto companion app, it could feasibly allow you to make a custom selection of readings / gauges to display on your head unit whilst driving. I emailed their customer service to suggest it. I was thinking that I’d...

    Composition colour infotainment system - add android auto?

    Hi - I have a 2019 T6 with factory fitted composition colour infotainment system. I'm assuming it's never had any update (not sure where to obtain any updates). Just wondering if there is any way of getting this system to work with Android Auto or Apple Car play? Thanks V much.

    Android Based Headunit - Any Good??

    I plan on installing a 360 camera system on our LWB T6. The standard headunit will not accept a camera (oem or 3rd party), so I have to change it. As much as I would like to replace it with something like an Alpine or Kenwood unit, the funds available for this whole project do not stretch that...

    I've got a T6.1 with the standard touchscreen infotainment system. When I plug in my phone to use Android Auto (AA), the van won't then allow me to listen to music from my phone. I can select "Radio" and listen to the radio, but if I select "BT Audio" the unit tells me my phone is already...
