Apple car play? No yes?

Does anyone know of anyway to get apple car play in a 2017 Armada? Software upgrade? Mirroring device/program?

Aftermarket radio would be the only way.

No. As far as I know there is no aftermarket replacement for the radio itself at this time. You would have to check if there is any aftermarket module/adapter out there.

You will have to go completely aftermarket. Nissan have not officially supported any 3rd party companies who’s products can interface with earlier Nissan models. You CAN install aftermarket radios and such but you won’t have complete integrated functionality that you may be hoping to achieve.

Many manufacturers have done software update to bring Carplay/Android Auto to older vehicles. I really hope Nissan does this as well.

Don’t hold your breath. The software in the infiniti is not the same as in the Nissan models. The software on the patrol is still on early 2000s tech. maybe in the next BIG model upgrade, but doubtful for mino refreshes.

Yeah, it's frustrating that when they released the new 2017 version that they didn't add CarPlay.... they are starting to release it on other versions, so keeping my fingers crossed for a software update... Like Nepali said - I know other manufacturers do this regularly, but I have no experience with Nissan since this is my first one..
