    Android Screen for D3/RRS - reverse camera, CarPlay, etc...

    I'd posted about this in another thread but I got this D3 back yesterday to update the software/firmware and try tweaking the settings to make it better.

    It's now much better!



    Land Rover logo at startup

    Apple CarPlay interface improved

    Steering wheel controls now working (!!!) for the CarPlay track skip forward/back.





    Spewing because this is better than what I have in my XKR...



    Looks bloody great IMHO...

    Not really, no.

    There's very little info provided by the suppliers of these Android units, and I didn't really have time to take many photos when I was putting it in.

    In a D3 or RRS without factory navigation, you need to cut out the hole to fit the screen, that's probably the most intensive part of it, the rest is just the usual wiring & setting it up.

    Good work Cambo.
    So to ask the perennial question, is this possibly a complete fix/update for the early D4s without navigation etc that seem to have fallen through the cracks so far?

    Thanks mate.

    Yes of course I thought about could this work in the 2010-2011 D4, and the answer is yes, but...

    - only the 2010-2011 models
    - you will still have a panel full of redundant buttons
    - the mounting of the screen in a D3 is different to a D4
    - the frame around the screen on a D3 is a different shape to a D4

    so it may not be an exact fit, may need some modification, or you have to accept that it doesn't fit 100% right

    but making it "work" yes it would work.

    Cambo, I saw you had a kit of a few combined parts that could be soldered into the existing 2010 model that gave Apple carplay. Wasnít for the feint hearted but what I want.

    What was the deal there?

    That's only for factory navigation screens. If you have the small screen then a replacement screen like the one in this thread is needed.
