Thanks @Hondaboy! I'm going to get one of those ordered. I was seriously looking at getting a newer car because I have another car with CarPlay and not having it in this car is driving me bonkers. That and having physical volume buttons is going to be very nice. Rather go this way than a full redo with a Kenwood and all the other stuff....or one of those offshore Android units.
Tell me about it! I was going to get one of the android units from china and hope that all the cameras worked. But when I saw this solution I had to try it. By the way do not plug the gps antenna since it will interfere with the phone's gps and it will give you incorrect info. I left it unplugged and no issues whatsoever. Its the silver connector on the upper left corner of the head unit.
