VW Mib 2 screen upgrade

Hi Guys,

I have a 2015 VW Golf with a MIB 2 headunit,6.5 inch screen,built in sat nav and Dynaudio upgrade.

Id like to do two things,fit the larger 8 inch screen from the discovery pro head unit and if possible activate the carconnect feature to enable android auto?

A couple of questions,is the screen just s straight swap?
Do i have to go to VW to activate car connect ?

If anyone knows the answers it'd be a big help.

Cheers

Andy.

Hi Andy,

I know VW Retrofit in Redditch can sort it all out for you so you just have to plug it in. ( https://en-gb.facebook.com/vwretrofit/ )

Alex is extremely knowledgeable and I've bought two radios of him before, he gives advice out for free as well, like a true gent!

From my experience all the discoveries have carconnect available on them as standard, it's just about removing component protection. My advice would be to go to his workshop and let him code it for you, if you do decide to get it done.

Kind regards
William
