Yeah, that's my concern too-I'd imagine that you'd need to come out of the interface to use the reverse camera, trip computers etc., which isn't the end of the world but still a pain! I'd love to swap it out for the newer unit, had a new C3 with that and it was so much better, but sounds like a right faff...

Hi all,

Just came across this thread after just buying a C4 Cactus (2017). I’m very interested in getting a CarPlay head unit and was very excited to come across this video which I thought I’d share as is looks very promising:

Looks very interesting, and not too hard to do.

Anyone know if you can only use the GPS on the screen if you have it built in? Or can/will it use the connected phones GPS signal?

I’ve reached out to the Polish seller via YouTube for more
Information about my particular model to see if it works and if they ship to the UK so I will update when I know more.

Hi apt, did you ever hear back from the seller? This looks like the kit that a couple of us found on AliExpress, still considering it (not that I drive much at the minute, of course... 🤣)
