Hi All,
I've done a bit of investigating and discovered that (finally) there is a way to get Apple CarPlay/Android Auto for MIB1.
The YouTube link is here for you All to check out -

Basically, it uses a wireless adaptor we connect to!
Sold here - https://motrade.nl/nl/carplay-android-mirror/vw/vanaf-2012-mib1-mib2/vw-mib-mib2/a-2332-20000279

Has anyone done this or have any feedback on it? I know MIB2 would be better but its still quite an expensive upgrade...
You can get an MIB2 capable of carplay/android auto cheaper than that unit. The first MIB2 no nav i bought was around $120

How did you get on with this? Did you purchase it in the end ?
Its more expensive todo this module, than to buy an MIB2. A non nav mib2 is cheap as shit.

I've been struggling to find anything 'cheap' on eBay. My biggest concern is swapping it all out as it won't be plug n play ? can you tell me how you did yours and what you upgraded from etc ?

Do you have a unit in your glove box? Or Dynaudio?

I went from a MIB1, to a non nav MIB2. But i just looked, prices have almost doubled, i didnt even think about the chip shortage affecting stuff like that.
