Pics: Installed the VW MIB-2 head unit in my VW Polo GTI

The flip camera from a VW Passat (lowline camera without dynamic guidelines) is installed with a custom stainless steel (SS304) plate.

BHPian robimahanta recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Decided to go ahead with Apple CarPlay installation in the GTI along with the OEM flip camera. I had been contemplating whether to go ahead with the infotainment module upgrade since a long time and finally bit the bullet as I decided not to sell the GTI any time soon. It is expensive but completely retains the stock look and all components are OEM VW.

I got it done at home by the “German DNA” guys. They came home and did the installation in a couple of hours. The display unit remains the same and the unit in the glove box is replaced to MIB2 Discover media (navigation, app connect, camera feed) from the stock MIB1 unit.

I didn’t opt for TPMS sensors (already using Sensairy sensors) and high line camera.

Sharing some pictures,

Using a Panasonic Toughpad FZ G1 with VCDS for all the coding and diagnostics

Old unit in the glove box

3Q0035819B MIB1 stock unit

3Q0035866C MIB2 Discover Media with latest navigation and all FEC unlocked, firmware 0480 and all possible features activated

Stock boot hatch coming off

New OEM Flip Camera with custom plate installed

The camera flips open when reverse is engaged

The clarity is decent and integration with stock optical parking sensors is nice (no dynamic guidelines for the low line camera)

Finally Car Play in the GTI (wired)

Some extra unlocked features (sport and off-road menu, mostly gimmicks)

Offroad menu showing steering angle, compass and elevation

Performance menu has options for power, oil temperature, boost pressure, coolant temperature, g forces etc.

Lap timer too
