    Has anyone found a carplay addon for the LR4. If so does it work well and and is it a DIY or require technical assistance? Looking to get my iPhone mirrored on infotainment touch screen.

    The only way I know it can be done is replacing the head unit.

    Thanks Joey. I'll check out the links you've provided as well.
    I recently read that in 2019 LR is apparently going to provide a modular addon for Land Rovers and Range Rovers that don't have factory installed Car Play. Has anyone heard and info on this?

    I have a Disco 5. However...It was supposed to come on it before I purchased it, so the dealer put it on no charge.
    I am very glad I didn't pay for it, as it seems to be bossing around the LR apps, such as changing some of the settings on it's own. annoying....so I don't use it most of the time.

    Thanks for your update Groucho123. Just to confirm, your dealer added CarPlay to your vehicle at the dealership? In other words, a CarPlay "module" was added?
    Since I don't have CarPlay … yet … can you tell me if it actually mirrors your phone on your touch screen. Any other observations would be welcome.
    Thanks for sharing, Cheers, Pat

    I understand that Land Rover dealers in the US can now retrofit Car Play on select Land Rover vehicles. I currently have a call in to the Fort Myers dealership to inquire if my 2016 HSe Lux is a "select" vehicle.
    I would love to hear comments from anyone that has had Car Play retrofitted

    Hello,

    It's been awhile since you're posted about a stealership option of getting Carplay retrofitted to your LR4, any updates?
