The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI here, for example, received exactly this upgrade, and as you can see for yourselves, everything looks like a factory-installed head unit. And the best of all is that nothing has been lost, and you still get support for the reverse camera that the owner uses for parking.
Performed by GHF Garage, who shared the whole thing on Instagram, the upgrade is something that anyone can do with the right head unit – truth be told, no information has been shared on what HU was used for the action of CarPlay and Android Auto.
And yet, finding a head unit that fits the Golf GTI isn’t really a difficult thing to do, and one of the best choices is the Alpine X903D-G7.
The manufacturer itself emphasizes this unit comes with “perfect system integration” for the Golf, and it includes a large 9-inch display with touch support, CarPlay and Android Auto support, as well as iGo Primo Nextgen navigation with TomTom maps.
Of course, this unit also supports an audio system upgrade with several tuning options, as well as the connection of a parking camera just like in the example above.
There are lots of similar head units out there, and it all depends on how much you’re willing to pay for the whole thing. If the budget isn’t a concern, then finding the best head unit for your Golf GTI really shouldn’t be such a big problem.
