  • I have older Pioneer AVIC with carplay that is ok, but the one feature that will get me to upgrade in a second is wireless connectivity!
  • I don't know why they don't mention it but the Alpine iLX-007 has wireless CarPlay.
  • That's the iLX-107, which blows all the rest of these out of the water. This article was updated recently but is still a solid 2 years out-of-date.
  • I just picked up the AVIC-W8400NEX with wireless connectivity. Pricey but awesome with the capacitive screen!
