These RCD330's with CarPlay could be the answer I've been searching for!
I've always wanted CarPlay in my golf. As an avid user of Spotify, I've always wanted a way to safely change songs etc, without having to manhandle my phone, but the options always seemed a bit limited. The aftermarket units from the likes of Pioneer and Alpine, whilst looking very nice, I've always thought looked out of place on the mk5 and plus, were always on the pricey side for what they are.
Now I can have an OEM solution, with all the joys of CarPlay!
So I suppose my biggest barriers are:
- which canbus do I need for an 06 gti (original canbus I'm guessing), shall I buy pre-coded, or find someone local to code for me?
- I'm pretty attached to my MFSW, but I've seen previously people saying these head units may not play nicely with the CH module in the mk5's, what's the deal with those? I have factory fitted highline display, if it makes any difference at all.
As an ever so slight aside, if I can find my CH number from VAGCOM, could I determine whether or not I'd need the diagnostic wire for cruise control?
