Audi A8(D3/D4) 2002-2017 Aftermarket Radio Upgrade
Aftermarket GPS Navigation Head Unit is specially designed to upgrade AUDI A8(D3/D4) 2002-2017 factory radio system. It has the same plugs and harness as the original radio, plug-and-play. This product only replaces the original LCD screen unit and retains the factory AUDI FM/CD head unit, so the original Audi car computer/CD/FM/AM/Sirius/XM will still work as before.

Is this product plug-and-play? Do I need to program or code my Audi? Do I need to buy an external GPS antenna? Can I still check the car info as the OEM screen?
Answer: Yes, it is plug-and-play. It has the same plugs and harness as the original Audi system. You do not need to program your car. All necessary accessories are included in the package. You do not need to buy anything else to make it work. You can still check the original Audi car info as before.

How do I switch the original Audi interface to the new upgrade system?
Answer: Please tap the screen.
Why does it show a black screen with no signal when tapping “MMIâ€?to switch back to the original Audi interface?
Answer: Please check the CAR-LVDS port. Make sure you connect the LVDS plug (removed from the OEM screen) to the new screen.
Why is there no audio from the new upgrade system?
1. Please press the MEDIA button on the radio panel and check the audio source options. Make sure the External Audio input(AUX) is activated.

2. Then tap the screen to access the new upgrade system. You should be able to hear sound.
Why does it not power off when I shut down the car?
