so am i understanding right this basically is you hot spot the box and it runs android?
I ordered from joyeauto website since it was a little cheaper than aliexpress. My antenna was different than the nub one.....mine is corded and can be relocated as you wish.Looking at JoyeAuto's AliExpress listing, I can see 2 different listings for Touareg:
US $409.18 18% OFF|Joyeauto Wifi Wireless Apple Carplay for Volkswagen Touareg 2010 2017 8inch Android Mirror Car play Support Front/Rear Camera-in TV Receiver for Car from Automobiles & Motorcycles on AliExpress (lower price)
US $445.49 25% OFF|Joyeauto Wifi Wireless Apple Carplay for 2010 2017 Volkswagen Toureg Golf with iOS13 Android Mirror Android Auto Apple Mirror-in Car Multimedia Player from Automobiles & Motorcycles on AliExpress (higher price)
Looking closely, the first listing did get more orders sold than the second, probably due to lower price? I'm not able to tell what's the difference between the 2 listing. But you can see that in the description page of the 1st listing, there is a cable layout showing the WiFi antenna which looks exactly like what DMCAFL received.
SO I wonder.....
@molardog, do you happen to remember through which link did you order? the 1st or the 2nd link above? Or directly from JoyeAuto website (not AliExpress)? And how's your antenna look like?
@molardog or @DMCAFL did you have to specify the headunit mode in your order? i.e. RCD550 (6.5inch) vs. RNS850 (8 inch)? not sure if it matters at all but just wanted to see if it explains the discrepancy in the pricing and/or the difference in the items you received.
I wouldn't be surprised to hear that there's some variation in capability from source to source, even if the hardware appears identical. How the low to mid-range of China's domestic electronics design and manufacturing works is fascinatingly messy. Cloning of designs is rampant with great inconsistency in updates and revisions.I have been 'speaking' to a USA Touareg owner who has purchased one of these 'units' via an eBay seller. The unit I have been investigating from this eBay seller would appear to be presenting with very little or no loss of features. My USA friend assures me that call quality both in and outbound using the VW OEM mic is perfect. He assures me that all steering wheel buttons work whether in Carplay mode or VW RNS850 mode. ...
Interesting. I wonder whether the available messages differ by bus segment. I did peek under the passenger carpet and noticed that there are no less than five individual pairs of CAN wiring in that tray.
Do you have a link of where you bought this from? Curious to see what the instructions look like. I’ll have to take it to a stereo installer since I’m clueless with this stuff.There are comments on other threads that the naviplus is harder to install than the joyeing. Have just ordered so will post how I go. Contact via WhatsApp was good to request the latest version with quality WiFi aerial. They asked for a photo of the head unit to confirm correct model ordered..

Bugger just noticed previous posts about the one sold on eBay too which is cheaper and seems to work well.
It's also sold on AliExpress but a bit more expensive than buying directly.

What I’ve been told directly from NaviPlus when asking why their unit is superior and commands double the price the response was that Naviplus Steering Wheel Controls are able to skip tracks where others can’t.Is there any comparison against the NaviPlus unit?
I've ordered an ebay one.
The seller appears (thru all of my research) to provide first class units, with a very good rate of successful instals etc.
I'll be providing an update once the unit arrives and is installed. Can't wait.
Here is the link to my supplier: Wireless Apple Carplay Android Auto GPS for Volkswagen Touareg 2010-2017 8 inch | eBayWhat I’ve been told directly from NaviPlus when asking why their unit is superior and commands double the price the response was that Naviplus Steering Wheel Controls are able to skip tracks where others can’t.
Can you guys please provide links to the eBay seller with the great feedback. There are quite a few.
