Apple CarPlay Upgrade

Hi everyone - I have a 2015 GC Overland - wondering if it would be possible to upgrade my Uconnect to have Apple CarPlay - is this an easy thing to do? If so, roughly how much would it cost?

Easy but not cheap. The radio needs care play hardware chips, so you are into a radio replacement. There may be aftermarket options from Kenwood, Pioneer, etc.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

I am strongly considering this on my 2012 as well. After a nice road trip, Android Auto would have been great. Playing around on Crutchfield it can be done with great features for around $500-$600 on older units when you go 3rd party. With a 2015, you can get a newer radio swapped in but I think you are looking at $1600 or so

They also have one for Android phones and if you want to make it a wireless connection they have that, too.

Cool

I just did this in my 2016 GC. Awesome upgrade.

Pretty easy process, essentially plug and play. Used the following two parts..

68322340AB - UAQ Radio
68323663AE - Hub Media Center

Good luck!

Did you order from infotaninment.com or source the parts individually?

I did the infotainment upgrade on my 2017 GC Summit. Was very easy, maybe 20-30 minutes to get it all connected. Worked perfectly. Definitely not cheap but but a great upgrade. Beyond just carplay/android auto the screen is a little higher resolution, better graphics, etc. You lose the ability to crank the car with the app on your phone with this upgrade but that wasn't a big deal to me.

Sourced individually, hard as heck to find the radio, but worth the effort for the saved $$$.
