Hi, I’m new here but would like to share some information with you all. You can purchase a retro fit unit or parts to make the connect unit compatible with CarPlay or Android Auto they aren’t cheap as they either come from Australia, Newzealand or the US I have attached a couple of links for people to look at should you wish to keep the functionality of the connect unit.
