2007MY Headunit replacement

Good afternoon everyone,

I'm after some help, please. I realise there's been a thousand of these posts but I can't find anything concrete on upgrading the head unit on 2007MY cars with Logic7. I feel like I'm going around in circles reading 10 page android unit build threads on 2002MY Laughing . I'd very much like to install an Apple CarPlay head unit.

Forgetting the head unit, I suppose my main question is: If I was to use a Connects2 CTKLR05 for the install, is it the only thing that I'll need? Other install threads for the L322.1 suggest I'd need to wire into the boot (which is, by some miracle bone dry) and it all sounds overly complicated (aka: JLR) but I'm not sure if I'll need to or not?

Failing this, because if it's too costly I'd rather spend the money on proper maintenance: I've read it's possible to upgrade the Bluetooth module to allow phonebook download and eliminate having to pair the phone on entry etc. If so, what, who and how?

TIA!

Picture of the rear for reference (posted upside down to make it easier for you all Whistle :

I provide a BT swap out module but only if yours currently works ok (phonebook feature notwithstanding)
The update gives you phonebook and more reliable (re-)connection.

i havnt heard of the head unit on the MOST system being replaced Dean.

if you take the HU out of the fibre 'circuit' then the whole system fails...

here's a pic of the MOST layout taken from the denso manual [from wiki http://www.fullfatrr.com/gallery/albums/us...ation.pdf]

Hey Stan,

Perhaps Iíve used the wrong terminology? Or is it genuinely not possible to replace the touchscreen unit on 2007MY+?

Apologies, Iím a total novice at ICE.

dont think it is Dean, unless the replacement HU can take the MOST signals and interpret them... .

Ah, thatís a bit of a stumbling block. So the Connects2, designated for 05-09 FF wonít work then?

Is this why people have moved the head unit to the glovebox?

the earlier FF's used a canbus system so an android replacement HU can be fitted with the old one going into the glovebox so that you retain the date/settings..

the one you have specified can accommodate an optic cable so tbh i dont know... i would give the dealer a ring and get some more info.. .

Excellent, thanks for the explanation Stan, very useful! I'l give Connects2 a bell tomorrow and ask for some advice.

any update on this? I'm following with interest, as (if I keep mine) I'd love to replace the rather dated touchscreen unit, and add some extra features.
