Has anyone tried the Naviplus on their Touareg? A company out of Australia that sells units that plug into your existing wiring to make the RNS-850 work with Android Auto and Apple Car Play.

I'd love to be able to get it working on my car, but I am too chicken to go first. I emailed the seller and he responds almost immediately.. he provided me with some videos of it working as well as the installation instructions if anyone is interested.

I am also interested in this, but it´s way to expensive for a box and a cable.

There are other alternatives for the Audi MMI, so I expect more sellers will pop up soon. As the MMI 3GP or + is pretty much the same as the RNS850.

Hi tdub. Very interested to have the installation manual! I just ordered the module for my ‘12 Touareg... If it seems too complicated I may cancel my order...

If you private message me your email I will send it to you. For some reason I cannot seem to attach a PDF. The instructions are only 13 pages... Doesn't seem too complicated. Are you located in the US?

PM Sent. I've been wanting to install something very similar but have not been able to find any instructions on how it is installed.

NaviPlus

I spoke, via email, with the people from AU. They informed me that it would cost $700 and arrive in 3 days to my office in Utah.

They also sent the installation manual PDF.

I would like to get Android Auto in my vehicle, but at $700 plus installation, not sure.

The installation instructions show a separate IR remote and refer to Touch-Screen calibration.

I don't mind paying for the installation, but until I hear from someone who has already installed it, I don't think I can spend the money on something unproven yet.

At half that price, I would probably have already gotten one. At $500, I would have thought a bit harder, but probably bit the bullet after going the rounds with myself. At $700, I need confirmation.

I recently contacted Naviplus as well. I had started another thread a few days ago since I lost hands-free phone functionality after upgrading to an iPhone 8 and I reached out to the forum for options on 3rd party hardware to remedy the situation. I like CarPlay quiet a bit as I have the functionality in my 2016 Golf R.

I will most likely buy the unit in a few weeks after returning from an out of town trip. I will be happy to post updates after the install on my 2012 Touareg.

@hajihadabone - you should try updating your RNS firmware to restore the iPhone 8 functionality. My newer phones are working correctly now (finally).

I know it's only been a couple of weeks but has anyone had success having this installed and working?

Thanks.
