    o GPS navigation: NX504E features a built-in car navigation system with simple destination input, turn-by-turn voice prompts, and selectable route guidance - everything you need to reach your destination quickly and efficiently. Pre-loaded with rich points of interest, its database includes national parks, restaurants, petrol stations, and much more.
    RDS-TMC information: provides instant road condition updates from local traffic control centres via RDS-TMC (Traffic Message Channel). Additionally, the re-route feature lets you avoid traffic jams by choosing other roads.
    o Bluetooth® connectivity: integrated Bluetooth provides hands-free voice communication, compatible with a wide variety of mobile phones. A built-in microphone lets you talk and drive at the same time. Play music stored on any Bluetooth device. The pairing process is extremely simple - simply confirm the access codes shown on the NX504E and the Bluetooth to connect.

    o Wide variety of video content
    o Exclusive Clarion sound technology
    o 728 variable-colour illumination
    o 6-Channel 4-Volt RCA outputs for simpler expansion and upgrades

    Sorry for the delay, yes it would connect to your factory back-up camera.

    Sounds very interesting.
    Can you give us contact info for someone (owner) who has installed this unit in a Cali T?

    I believe this is for the original California, not the T.

    The goal I think is to bring up the older cars to close to current equipment.

    Is this the same as the factory CarPlay unit that you can retrofit at the dealer?

    I'm sorry I don't quite understand what CarPlay is.

    This Clarion radio is FROM Ferrari, not aftermarket in anyway. This is an alternative, a cheaper alternative at that, for a brand new up-to-date unit.

    This seems to be the unit announced by Ferrari back in March as an upgrade for the original California, seemingly at a discounted price. You can look up the features and check out some reviews on the Clarion NX504E if you're interested. I did some basic research, and although it seems to have some CarPlay-like features, it does not use Apple CarPlay. To be honest, I don't think that CarPlay integration was every actually implied by the Ferrari announcement, just speculated on by us here on the forum.

    Jeremy (OP) has been very helpful in my inquiry on this headunit (HU) by sending me pictures of the unit and parts. Some things I did notice is that the actual HU does not have "Ferrari" branding on it (like the press release picture) and almost looks like a standard Clarion NX605 HU. I'm sure there is some software tweaks to have Ferrari splash screens and other features to work with steering wheel and other Cali controls, but it visually looks the same if I were to go and by a NX605 HU.

    More importantly, I was looking if this unit was truly a "Plug-and-Play" system that would directly connect to the factor radio plugs without any specialty harnesses. Knowing our MyGig OEM units have identical plugs to others like Chrysler/Jeep/etc., the back of this Clarion unit (from pictures I received) looks to need a radio harness to work with our OEM harness (which isn't uncommon in the aftermarket radio world). I'm sure this kit comes with all harnesses and parts required.

    My thoughts (though I'm still considering this unit upgradde), is that if I'm going to be required to use a radio harness anyways regardless of the headunit, and if there is no true benefit with this Ferrari offered upgrade, I might get more for my money just using the radio bezel from this kit and looking at other aftermarket headunit options, like one with Apple Carplay, etc.

    Installation would not be difficult if done by an authorized Ferrari dealer. If you were to do it yourself unfortunately I couldn't tell you the difficulty level.

    Thanks Jeremy for the continue info and all the support. I'll most likely be looking at purchasing this upgrade from you once I can get some local quotes on installation.

    I guess someone needs to take the plunge... :)

    Do you know if the Radio/CD/XM name will still show up on the display on the left of the tach?

    Thanks,

    Without physically installing it into a car, I just don't know. I can only assume it does as this is from Ferrari and I would think all previous "specs" as it relates to the display are the same.

    Unfortunately, there is no removable radio bezel for the Cali. The entire lower dash must come out. I've seen it done (in photos,) but never had the guts to do it on mine when my radio needed work.
