Hi

I would advise you to hold on your decision to buy the car now. There is a newer model coming in 2020 which will have In Touch Control Pro as a standard fitting and it will also support Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Apart from the system there will be a few more upgrades to the design and other features.

I can send you pictures of the product, because the guy tested it before sending it, and sent me some pictures (not able to send picture in the forum now, should wait more post ???)

He says it was plug and play, but didn't say how to remove the plastic board to replace the old one without breaking something.
Do you know where I could find a description how to remove the touch screen ?
@wolfyinuk , have you been able to install and use the system? any feedback?

Hi, this is really useful, thanks.

I've just bought a 2018 SD4, but it has the 'non pro' system (with hard buttons); Is it still possible to pull this out and replace with the ones mentioned in this thread? or am I stuck with it?

Thanks!

Hi Disco2112,

What did you end up doing in the end? I am in the same position (just bought my DS2018 with the old 8" intouch - not pro!). I found a company that installs a device behind the intouch module that is supposed to give Apple CarPlay and Android support; they are charging $1200 AUD fitted.

I still think it's strange that you can't replace the 8" with the 10" - especially since it would have been an option on the original build ! I would have paid good money to get the 10" incontrol pro!

Thanks

Which company/ option would do this? Any link? I’d be willing to pay for that option to have Apple CarPlay.

Just checked with the LR dealer. They said they can’t replace the standard unit with the intouch pro. We’re kind of stuck with it. Guess I’ll just have to start learning how to use the default GPS.

According to my survey, there are only 3 ways to upgrade carplay.

1. It will cost at least $7000 upgrade to the original full touch 12‘screen system.

2. Purchase an external system in aftermarket and install it. The original Harman (NLI HU) and carpaly share the original monitor.

3. Replace Android directly, but there may be a bigger risk.

There is actually an option now to get CarPlay or Android Auto on the InControl touch (not the pro). Its a little android box that plugs into the main entertainment unit behind the climate controls. There are a couple of options as far as I have seen but they are essentially the same kind of hardware solution.

One is from Joyeauto and the other is from Unique-AD.

I'll post more details and take some photos over the weekend.
