There is virtually no chance of any previous model getting CarPlay. Owners have been through this before. They may fix something that’s broken. But adding new features. I don’t think so.looks like there is a software update out in the official map update site for the 16 and 17 mdx. does anyone know if the s/w update adds any new features to the audio system? CarPlay maybe?
It does say software update dvd. There is no mention of any new features. You can be sure there are no new features. The instruction manual is there. It has to run for at least 45 minutes with car running. I guess you just sit there. Sounds the same as when I updated my 14.it is on acuranavi_dot_navigation_com - see location which says "in the box" on the 17 mdx page
Unless it costs less then $100,I don’t think it’s worth it.I am looking into it myself as well. Just trying to figure out dimension wise if it can fit or not. I know the 2018 MDX has Apple Car Play unit and was thinking of buying it and replacing the one in 2016 MDX.
I have seen on youtube that there are some people who have successfully done it on their 2016 Pilot. They just bought 2017 Apple Car Play inbuilt infotainment system and replaced the 2016 one.
Here are the youtube links:
