Wow that is cool. Can you give us an update as to how well this works after using it for a while??If you have the Incontrol Touch Pro then there is an upgrade if your dealer is nice enough.
If you have the Incontrol Touch 8" then you need to use a separate unit that plugs into the 8" orginal unit like the Joyeauto or IDCore ones. I installed mine and have been using it for a few weeks now. In general it works pretty well.
That's the one I have in the 2017 Discovery i just bought ugh. I went to the dealer today wanting to update my software, but he said it can't be done. I wish i had the better screen. I wonder if it could be upgraded to the pro touch? And how much.Darn it. So this one is a no go:
Not the news I wanted but it was exactly the info I was after thanks! I have the regular touch also, so looking at how to get Android Auto working on it.......So, it seems like I'm SOL on this one. Shame on me for not doing enough research to realize this Disco has the regular Touch and not the Touch Pro system, but still a little miffed that the dealer not only advertised it as such, but even agreed for the free software upgrade to enable CarPlay as part of the deal.
From everything I can see, it can only be added to the Pro, and unless I'm missing something the dealership is right in that there is no way to upgrade the stereo hardware (which still seems really odd to me).
If anyone has successfully either upgraded a system (physically obviously) to a Pro, or has found a way to add CarPlay support to a standard Touch model (with Meridian sound if that matters), I would LOVE to hear about it.
