Most cars that came out recently have large 2DIN displays, some are touchscreens, some not — yet car manufacturers seem to be playing it safe with regards to what is included in your dashboard’s mighty multi-feature-capable display. There are available upgrades, but many fall short of what can be. There are manufacturers that do put the bells and whistles, but at a hefty premium, are region-dependent, and are still very limited with what they can do. Cars’ factory dashboard stereos with large displays need to have better and more capable systems, including a built-in GPS.
What’s more, if you want to install an Android 9.0 headunit, it generally requires complicated wiring know-how and/or expensive installation.
Carplay and Android Auto allow you to connect your phone to your stereo, but they are also very limiting in how you can empower your car’s infotainment system. You also need to pair your smartphone with system so your phone is always tied down.

HOW DIFFERENT IS IT FROM AN ANDROID PHONE?
Carplay2Droid-4G is specifically designed to be used as an instant upgrade to a factory car stereo. This frees up your phone so you don’t have to share resources if you don’t want to.
It uses its own built-in GPS system so there’s no need for a separate dashboard module.
With fast and reliable mobile network connectivity, CarPlay2Droid-4G makes high-definition videos stream smoother, allows faster app downloads, makes real-time road information when using Maps lag-free.
FULLY INDEPENDENT OF YOUR SMARTPHONE
If you’re the type who doesn’t like to keep connecting your phone each time you get in the car, CarPlay2Droid-4G is for you. No more fumbling around to find your phone in your pocket, and fiddling with it when you already need to be driving. You used to do this each and every time you get in the car, and can be a real pain sometimes, if not always. Now, with CarPlay2Droid, everything you need is already in there and setup, ready to take commands the minute you start the car.
MAKE PHONE CALLS FROM THE CAR
CarPlay2Droid-4G is fully independent from your smartphone, use a 3G/4G SIM card on the CarPlay2Droid-4G to make phone calls right from your car’s head unit, even with apps running entirely separate from your smartphone accounts. Can’t remember where your smartphone is? Call it from the car stereo!
WIRELESSLY INTEGRATES WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE
When you pair it with your smartphone app, be it Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, all the functionalities that come along with it are carried over to the screen, all settings and applications installed on your mobile’s car app.
What’s more, CarPlay2Droid-4G only makes use of what you need. The minute the smartphone is disconnected, all your previous settings will remain untouched. Perfect when someone else is using the car and they have their own preferences and playlists different from you.
Best of all, no additional wires.
HANDS-FREE VOICE CONTROL
CarPlay2Droid-4G has Google Assistant, so you can enjoy hands-free operation via voice commands. Say “Ok Google” to launch apps, send messages, make phone calls, play music, ask questions, enable and disable bluetooth, and a whole lot more. This makes your car feel a whole lot more like a companion.
GET SPLIT-SCREEN CONTROL
Multi-tasking does not have to be just one screen at a time.
Having 2 apps running literally side-by-side on your car’s display makes full use of the large screen that your car already has.
It makes perfect sense. You want your map navigation always available to you even while your passenger is choosing a music playlist, or while sending a message to someone to tell them you’re on your way.
TURN YOUR CAR’S DISPLAY AS A MEDIA CENTER

MORE POWER TO TOUCH

What is the difference between the two models?
(Carplay2Droid-4g vs Carplay2Droid)
They are pretty much the same, but Carplay2Droid-4g adds the following:

- Built-in 4G LTE + 3G WCDMA Phone calling
- Built-in GPS Antenna vs. non-4G’s external GPS antenna
