Hello everyone, so I know many of you have been looking to add apple carplay to the 2016-2018 HRV's. Since honda won't update our current radios. Well I finally found the solution and I literally only spent under $200. So the 2013-2015 Honda CRV EX radio actually fits our models and back when Apple carplay came out honda was testing it on certain customer's headunits with an update usb. So I found this guy who sells the update for the honda crv radio that enables the apple carplay on the CRV radio so after doing some research, the radio for the CRV actually uses the same plugs. So i went ahead and bought a 2015 Honda CRV EX radio on ebay for $100, and a aftermarket radio install kit for the hrv on amazon for $12. I reached out to the ebay guy who mailed me the software update for the radio for only $49. I took off my radio from my HRV installed the CRV radio, its actually plug and play no need to do any splicing. Turned on the radio and plugged in the update stick and thats it! I now have apple carplay on Honda's radio.

I'm wondering if the OP is a one-hit-wonder.

Anyway... I was thinking before I saw the pics that it would be interesting for those that have the pre-facelift HR-V.

However, it looks like the head unit sticks out something like half an inch to an inch from the surrounding trim. Personally, something like that would bother me... a LOT.

All three Kenwood HUs that I installed into my Fit stick out a little and they bothered me quite a bit.

So, I would suggest to anyone else that's interested... find out if it does actually stick out, if that kind of thing bothers you too.
