hello everyone, I am one of the 2017 Giulia QV owners who has always dreamed about getting an update for apple carplay.
But we never did as this is the only model year does not offer the option.
I had a friend who is a used car dealer. He recently told me one customer bought him a carplay kit and asked if can install it for him.
It is a 17 QV And it supports wireless carplay!
Here is the photo after installation. Is anyone interested? let me know I have already asked him to order me one.

Yes. More details please. Do you need to replace the factory infotainment unit and how does it work? Do you have any more details, links, cost etc.??

Hmm, while it looks like CarPlay, iCal and Settings are not CarPlay supported apps that I’ve seen, so it makes me wonder if it’s a mirroring device?

EDIT: that is all wrong; those are CarPlay apps. Sorry, nevermind.

Yeah, I’m sorry, I was wrong about the apps; they are CarPlay compatible, I’d just forgotten.

Without the touch screen I just find my CarPlay pretty useless.
Trust me, with the rotary control, very very useless and can’t do half of the shit I used to do with my previous cars with carplay

Trust you? You can’t be serious.

I’m not sure why you’re so hung up over fingering the screen, but for many of us, CarPlay delivers critical functionality which the onboard infosys doesn’t, like navigation with live traffic, police alerts, and the ability to reply to SMS.

There are a host of other non-critical but convenient features as well, such as Siri access, voice control, podcasts and streaming apps, so for you to call it “very, very useless” makes absolutely zero sense to me. I deal with folks in EU a lot, too, so the WhatsApp app is a boon, too.

Oh i am very serious. I use jailbroken iphone and thus i can load up all the apps. Most of apps, because of lack of touch screen, i can not control using the rotary control.

Do as u wish, but i am just sharing my experience.

That's too bad, my android auto works great. I don't even want a touch screen display.
