Yea..I was about to pull the trigger and purchase it, but deferred when lex99frc said he was gonna go forward with it...
Based on my headunit (2012 GT) and OEM rear camera (from Hazzydayz, see link above), these were the 2 units he advised me that I need:I spoke with Gelisound. They confirmed the Carplay adapter will work with my 2012 GT (OEM headunit with 2 SD card slots when you drop the screen). But it will also require a Video-in-Motion adapter for the install.
Apparently the install is quite lengthy and involved, so he stressed you need a very experienced installer for this.
A few things:
- You can't use the radio function via CarPlay. So if you want to use the headunit radio, you have to exit CarPlay. And then re-engage CarPlay when you're done with the radio
- CarPlay will accept and work with an OEM backup camera retrofit (this is the one I have but have yet to install: Genuine Rear Camera, Supply and Fit Audi R8, 4S)
- CarPlay will work via a wired and wireless connection
That's the extent of what I could figure out. His English is very limited. Despite this, I think I'm gonna take the plunge and buy the setup, install it, and if we can get it working, ask my installer (high end shop) to see if he can document the install process to help others.
NP. But I'm holding tight to see how Lex's install goesThanks FD. It looks like the main carplay unit comes packaged with the AV Interface for the video input.
Looking forward to your install. Good luck and please post videos and instructions when available. Cheers.
Did you reach out to them for any help? Did the unit come with instructions?I got all 3 the car play , video in motion, and video adapter and it doesn’t work barely any support so far it’s 750 I waisted
