Y'all should be advised of the above quote. I read the whole thread when researching this and I'm sure a lot of people haven't done that. Not to mention that this is a somewhat technical and complicated upgrade.The critical point for everyone to be aware of is that you have to have a 2016-2018 HRV EX or higher trim level for this swap to work.
Plus the amplifier differences if you have an HRV EXL or are swapping in a head unit from a CRV EX-L into a lower level HRV.
It does appear that for plug and play that you need to swap in a CRV EX head unit into a HRV EX.
And a CRV EX-L head unit into a HRV EX-L.
Plus be aware that this thread only applies to US 2016-2018 HRV's.
I wonder if one of the mods could change this thread title to include the critical trim detail?
Perhaps improve the thread title to:
"Finally Carplay for 2016-2018 HRV EX or Higher Trim Models! (CRV Head Unit)"
Just a thought that will help everyone before they consider this swap.
