    Cool Finally can get rid of Uconnect and upgrade to any headunit of your choice???

    Hey guys! I found this on YouTube. Wondering if anyone in the USA have tried this adapter that allows you to upgrade to almost any headunits while retaining Uconnect OEM settings through a custom menu.

    Check out the video below!

    The adapters and fit kit could be found at the following website (based in UK)

    Upon further research I came upon a US-based company that sells an interface module (flash upgradeable) that allows us to replace our OEM Uconnect headunit with select aftermarket GPS navigation headunits. It will retain most of the settings and features as present on the Uconnect 5.0 or 6.5, plus a few more nifty features such as different menu displays, various engine/vehicle sensors info, etc.

    Here is the link for your reference:

    This may help with doing an aftermarket head unit also.

    Replacing the head unit is likely the only way the 500x is going to get Apple Carplay or Andriod Auto. I am curious as to what would get lost replacing the head unit.

    Its hard to find kits for connecting a double din radio. Bluetooth likely doesn't matter, a stereo should provide that connectivity. I did find some kits that seem to provide steering wheel controls, but less info on USB/backup cam.

    It looks like you can get kits for all but USB/Bluetooth (Radio should have bluetooth anyway)

    Supposedly you have access to some or all of the settings.

    It's kinda expensive to upgrade if you want to keep all functionality intact. I guess it could cost at least $900+

    i found all the kits to keep steering wheel controls and USB/aux ports functioning, but was just told that the OEM backup camera will not work with ApplePlay aftermarket units

    That sucks. So have to install another backup camera if you really need it then. Maybe will be a fix or hack around it? In the future maybe?

    yep, a future hack or fix would be nice. i dont care so much about the added expense of an aftermarket backup camera, because most places give you a backup camera free with the radio, but i wont mount the new camera anywhere else but the current OEM location. i want to keep the nice clean look in place so it becomes a question of finding a camera that will fit where the OEM one sits.

    just my 2 cents, but this car has way too many blind spots to be backing up without a camera. its a must have.
