FF audio upgrade question

    Hey

    I have a 2014 FF that doesn’t have the Clarion CarPlay upgraded headunit.

    My question is this - I have the rear screens for the kids and the original system is Alpine. If I buy the car play upgrade system, will that work with the rear screens and the instrument screens etc. I ask as of course they are from different manufacturers.

    I’d like CarPlay and i use waze all the time but i don’t want to lose functionality.

    Thanks

    There seem to be companies in the UK that say they have been successful in upgrading the systems, I have no experience with either but after digging found them:

    Interesting, do you know is it can retain the steering wheel controls and interface with the right side display next to the rev counter?

    And hello PTG1... :)

    Do you know if the factory one - the re-branded Clarion unit - works with the various screens and rear screens? It's stupidly expensive as of course, it comes in a Ferrari box and has a prancing horse start up screen but if it does work fully then I will consider it. Cheers

    I looked into this and the only way to retain the steering controls is to use a Ferrari/clarion upgrade Can box don’t believe any one that tells you that the other brands like pioneer, alpine or Kenwood with there self learning steering control function will work is not true period. Even with the factory Can box you will loose information on right screen.
    I ended up using the factory Can box and top of the line clarion unit not the Ferrari branded one. Kids can watch dvds in the back and I can listen to music at the same time duel zones. All working awesome

    I used the VX807AU
    Only thing I can’t do is get the Ferrari logo on start up.
