Im doing a thing. (10.25" touch screen)

I recently bought a 2015 GLA45 AMG. It was such an amazing deal that I could not pass it up but as many know the screen is less than to be desired with no apple car play etc... Bring in the upgrade




I did some searching and I found this solution, most said it was pretty simple but the purchasing was daunting. I was lucky enough to stumble upon an amazon option with prime shipping and off to the races. I will update the whole process for those who are interested
Spicelinkz and Medtech like this.

Hey could you re post that link. I really wish the 2015 had car play but I was scared to void warranty with a newer screen.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

I have come to like the audio interface on the 2015 too much to risk losing the good interface I have vs what China thinks I should have for a UI. That alone keeps me away.

Otherwise, I'd love to have waze and pandora on my in car screen and controlled by the center console knob. That would be really nice.

---------------

I love the fact that I can hook up an ipod, SD card, and USB thumb drive all separately to the OEM radio. The ipod gets all my .wav high end audio files, the SD card gets all my mp3's, and the SD car gets my wife's entire music collection. so I can segregate everything (especailly segregating out my wife's crappy music) by source, and scroll as needed.

That's really nice to have.

Update: I canceled the one from ebay. After more research I learned there was a new model that has faster processing and more storage for faster movement. I ordered it from CKM in England and It will probably take a bit to get here. I will let you know. Ill also link where I bought it from.

that actually doesn't look half bad.

When you get that up and running, I might need you to take a few casual iphone videos of using the interface to see how similar it is to the OEM interface.

If it operates identical to the OEM interface and just adds the car play feature, it might be worth the investment.

Looks nice but I didn't see it having a Apple Car Play functionality (unless I missed it due to bad eyesight)

See my post on this forum. I am not able to post links.

The 10.25 is the same as the 9.33. The 9.33 has the better screen in my opinion.

To get Carplay, you just need to purchase a dongle and install the app on the head unit.

I will send a small vid with the car play dongle I purchased and let you know. I think it’ll be great

Where did you install the dongle portion?

The head unit comes with a USB cable with input port. The cable comes out underneath the glove apartment. That is where the dongle is plugged in.
