Best Android headunit for a LHD MK7 Golf?

The Left-hand drive (LHD) Mk7 Golf has Custom Android Headunits available for it. They replace the factory-fitted VW entertainment system and look factory-fitted, but with so many choices, which is the best?

The Golf 7 (2012–2020) Android headunit upgrade comes fitted with a plastic surround. This is to fully integrate the headunit into the dashboard for the best-looking install, but be sure to choose the right color to match your interior.

It has to be quick.

Our selected Android headunit for the left-hand drive Golf 7 has a PX6 processor. Having this feature makes it currently the fastest processor in an Android Headunit. The minimum of 4 GB of RAM fitted ensures that a lack of RAM does not throttle performance. Consider the 8 GB RAM option with the 8-core Processor (UIS7862), as this is a more future-proof specification for newer apps. This gives a smooth and fluid response and good boot times. Custom fit means that the correct CAN BUS adaptor and the factory-style connectors are included to make it a plug-and-play install. The custom fit integrates with the dash perfectly.

Our Recommendation

It is supplied with a CAN BUS adaptor to preserve factory steering wheel controls (SWC). Built with the fastest processor (UIS7862), plenty of RAM (8 GB RAM), the correct shape fascia, and an easy-to-fit factory connector, our recommended Android headunit for the LHD Golf Mk7 is available here.
