The 187A appears to be hacked with Carplay added - and it has the mute button on the top right - where the 187B seems to be the factory carplay version, and has "phone" and "app" buttons on the right, rather than a mute button there. I imagine they both work the same.

Thanks because I was wondering what would justify the price difference. You can find the 187a version at as low as 100$ the other one is at 260$

Careful, I think there are 3 versions :P

One version is without carplay and the Mute button (Usually $100)

One version with carplay and the Mute button (Usually $150-$200)

and

One version with Carplay and App/Phone button. (Usually $250+)

Thanks for the precision! I wonder if there are more differences than just the App button? I am planning to install a backup camera with it so wondering which one could be the best....

On AliExpress the 187B with Phone/App Buttons and Carplay is $219 right now with $4 shipping, so $223 out the door.

The one without carplay is the base base model.
The one with the mute button, but with carplay people are upgrading the RAM on the base model and reprogramming it to support the carplay function.
The one with the app button is the factory carplay version.

Mine is out for delivery at the moment! Hope to install it tonight!

Awsome thanks. What I have found weird is that some of the sellers they recommend the model of camera they are selling so I wonder if there is a technical reason or just trying ti leverage for more sales

OK this is pretty confusing. Entering RCD330 in the search bar I get this: https://is.gd/V8nnUW Can I assume they ALL have built in Bluetooth or? They also mention they use the same plug as the RCD 310 or 510 though I have no idea if mine is the same since I have a Premium 7. UGH!

Some are listed as "No Name" version..WTF does that mean? LOL

Obviously the Russian language ones aren't going to be a good move though I imagine Trump might like one

I'm an Android user so I have no need for Carplay though I'd love to be able to connect my phone via Bluetooth.

I just want a unit that will be plug and play with my base model Mk VI Golf

I'm an Android user also and I got this one:

Arrived today and just installed today- see my impressions below..

Just installed this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/262707429251...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Initial impressions:

Super pleased with this. I got the 'base' unit as I'm an android user and had no need for CarPlay

Totally plug and play. Literally took 10 minutes.

Pairs almost immediately to my Android (Pixel).

Worked out of the box with my aftermarket amps. No coding.

Works with Google Assist- I just press the on-screen voice button and can make calls via voice command.

Sound quality (to me) is very good.

The one thing I'm super pumped about is that the unit now stays on until the key is removed from the ignition which is great for shutting off the engine and maintaining a bluetooth connection..

I listen to most of my music from an SD card.. Browsing is way faster now..

Best 135.00 I've spent..

Steering wheel controls work except for the phone button- I wonder if the phone button can be remapped to activate voice commands..

Haven't messed with it a lot and will post more impressions and observations as they arise.

Just stumbled in here and immediately did some googling. Has anyone installed this one?

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Car-...0-3dfeb175bca2

Can we confirm if Steering Wheel Controls and Car Play work?
