Updating smartphone integration - carplay

Anyone consider installing a screen capable a running smartphone integration? Like Apple Carplay or Android? The factory map system is like a stone tablet and chisel .

I did this to my 2003 NSX...seemless and modern upgrade.

I'm thinking of installing a screen that would support either in the flip-up screen in my 2015 Vantage. But I would need to figure out how to disassemble the console, tap in to the factory sound system and rear camera.

Check navtool.com and/or naviks.com, both offer mirroring and Apple car play solutions.
I have the mirroring equipment from naviks and it works nicely.

I've performed this succesfully on my DB9 around 2 years ago and I'm still using it succesfully today. See here a sneak preview of its functioning:

Mine's just the Garmin (with Bluetooth, Wireless TPMS, wireless rear-view camera) but an Apple Carplay integration is fairly straight forward too from a mechanical perspective. The challenge lies with integrating music thru your car Audio but with a Dension integration can be done, NP

Check more on it here: https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...ml#post4544600

I can offer you guys a commercial option here so pm me for details (not sure if I'm allowed to mention this here)

Rich from Redpants is holding a Tech Day at the end of the month where experts from England will be showing and installing this type of stuff. I plan on having it installed in my 2007 V8V. I agree with you that the old navigation and lack of modern integration is a bummer.

I would check out his thread on this forum called "Interest in a Tech Day?".

I am planning to attend Tech Day. Still waiting for available options for infotainment and pricing. I chatted with James from Aston Installations UK (coming to Tech Day). He mentioned about HDMI option which is not CarPlay. I asked him about installing iPad Mini or another screen and haven't heard back. I like the NavTool option posted by GDay2. I contacted NavTool asking about their installation manual. They say it is for dealers only and not for DIY ... which doesn't make any sense.

im leaning towards the navics unit and they were responsive and emailed me their install guide. I'm going to tech day also... more interested in a mirror screen for back up cam that i can install without messing with the in dash nav since i hardly open it up... looks a bit awkward and opens at an angle that is hard to read unless you are sitting low in the car.

overall is likes to have option to have images on both screens with ability to switch between, etc.
