The latest car entertainment trend is definitely Apple CarPlay. Carplay users can use the navigation apps and music apps. However, it is not possible to play videos such as YouTube on the system itself.
To install the SCB-NTG5 carplay module in the GLC, after remove the center fascia, I connect the main quad lock cable and the LVDS cable behind the head unit. And the cables required for installation are included in the pakage box. And all cables are plug-and-play type, so there is no damage to the original wirings.
However, a AUX cable and a GPS fakra cable are optional items. So if you need these, please purchase them separately.
Among the carplay module components, I placed the USB slot cable in the armrest console. Connect your iPhone to this USB port via a Lightning cable and carpaly system will launch. You can make and receive calls as well as use various applications, and iPhone’s voice recognition ‘SIRI’ is also supported.
Finally, I activated the original AUX menu. Then, the sound is output to the car’s original speakers through the audio wires that already connected through the quad lock connector.
Unlike the original carplay system, in the case of an external carplay system, sound output is only possible through the AUX.
The CarPlay system is only controlled by the original jog shuttle and buttons.
Car owners can use various applications other than the video application on the carplay platform.
Smartphone mirror function is supported as an additional option. For iPhone, mirror your phone via AIR PLAY.
