Retrofit OEM Android Auto & CarPlay system for the 124 Spider. Fiat have never got round to offering the official OEM Android Auto & CarPlay system for the 124 Spider, but using parts sourced from Mazda, it is possible to retrofit this to our cars.

This installation is quite complex and requires various software updates to the car's entertainment system in order to function properly. It is quite easy for the uninitiated to damage the car's CMU (entertainment system) during that process.It is for this reason that wehave produced an exclusive suite of software which we ship with every Android Auto & Apple CarPlay kit, detailing exactly how you should upgrade your car's systems, and providing all the software necessary for you to do so.

However, we realise that some customers will still be uneasy performing these steps themselves, so we also offer a full fitting service - we will do the physical installation work, and will update all the necessary software to the latest stable version, ensuring that all Fiat / Abarth tools and functionality remains and works as expected following the Android Auto / CarPlay installation. We fully test the installation to ensure full functionality before you drive away.

When fitted by 124 Spider UK, we can update your system to Android Auto / Apple CarPlay *regardless* of the original firmware version on your car, and will also update the Gracenote music database on your car - this upgrade is available from any other supplier (and due to software re-distibution laws can not be included in our self-fit kits).

We also have the fastest fitting service in the UK, being able to complete this retrofit in under 2 hours - some other suppliers quote 3 or 4, and so try to charge you more than is necessary. That is not our philosophy!

(please ensure your existing entertainment system firmware is LOWER than version 59.00.021 if you intend to fit this kit yourself)

Stuart fitted the kit in our 2018 LussoPlus today; fantastic to have this feature; can’t recommend the kit enough and thanks Stuart for a great job!

Having watched Stuart pull apart my car previously to fit the reversing camera I braved the installation of this brilliant bit of kit. As always, Stuart provided very clear instructions for both the software and hardware installation and the final result is a great addition to our already brilliant cars! I had a couple of questions during the installation process that were almost immediately answered as well. Would highly recommend

Excellent addition to my Spider. Very happy, fast trouble free installation by Stuart. Highly recommended.

We drove down from Glasgow to have Stuart fit this kit and I am so glad that we made that effort. Stuart was calmness personified despite traffic problems pushing my stress levels sky high. He had the kit fitted and my car back together in next to no time and it worked prefectly straight out of the box. It has improved the car no end and, coupled with the reversing camera which was fitted at the same time, has made for a vastly improved driving experience. I will definitely be back for more in the future.

Decided it was too much time and effort to drive 'down South' so bought the kit online. It arrived next day and took a couple of hours to update the software and fit the hardware. Very pleased with the result - vastly improved the functionality of the infotainment system having Android Auto. I'd regard this as a 'must have' mod to the car.

Being somewhat handy I decided to install myself, and following the helpful and detailed instructions it all went smoothly. Can't be happier with the final result!

Also the update to 70.00.100 seems to have fixed the standard navigation which would walk off in random directions and not recover, so I'm doubly happy.

*** 100% recommend this modification ***

One thing to note is, I believe the new usb hub provided is not OEM, not that that bothers me as it functions like it should. (I might be wrong!)
However the reason I believe it isn't is unfortunately the faceplate was slight too big to fit in flush. I did try reusing the original faceplate but the ports don't quite line up. BUT with a bit fine sandpaper later the job was a gooden

After continuously having problems with the MZD-AIO version of android auto. I finally decided enough was enough and I should just do it properly. All I can say is it was money well spent no more random crashing no more audio stuttering and I can even take and make calls within android auto. It also loads much quicker. the instructions for fitting were easy to follow and the process took me a couple of hours to complete.
