Sync 2.0 update for Apple Carplay, is it possible?

Recommended Posts

Hi 

After a little but of advice. 

Is it possible to simply software update my sync 2.0 touch screen unit to the version on the sync 3.0 that has apple carplay compatibility.  

I really like the sync 3.0 look and functionality but would like to avoid a whole new unit if I can.

Cheers for the help and advice in advance.

No "simple" update for Sync 2 Apple Carplay that I know of apart from upgrading to Sync 3. I have Sync 3 and an iPhone but found carplay useless, so its disabled.

For Sync 3 you'll need compatible new hardware, in addition to Sync 3 software and the programming skills/tools to make it all work. Last time I checked it was very expensive for UK dealer sourced parts.

The touch screen (which uses a different technology) and APIM are among the more expensive bits, but there are other items as well.
