If you have software version starting with P, Q, R, S, U, V, W, X or Y then you will need to get it coded either In-Person(Manchester) or Remotely. Remote coding requirements are below.
90% of cars have WiFi antenna but some cars may require additional WiFi antenna to get CarPlay functioning properly. It is the buyer’s responsibility to buy one. You can always buy one after Carplay activation as WiFi antenna is just plug and play.
Please note. No Returns/Refunds because the Files/Codes are tied to you car’s VIN number.
