Before installing the CarPlay
module, I reviewed a lot of YouTube tutorials and thought it would be very fun if I could install it myself. I also wanted to do some challenging things. The point is that can save a lot of costs. I didn't investigate the cost of local installation, but I guess it will not be low.
I chose Carlinkitlife
Their module has the following advantages compared to others:
1. The price is more reasonable, less than $350
2. You don't have to do wiring to link to a fuse and get power
3. Doesn’t require external unit such as joyeauto.
4. The board itself is well made and the and components are looking great.
