Universal

This screen is totally universal as it makes no changes to the existing car wiring or any alterations to the existing stereo. The universal suction screen mount makes attaching and detaching the touch screen very quick and easy to perform. It is ideal for moving from vehicle to vehicle or removed and out of sight when not in use.

Touch Screen

The 7″ IPS LCD screen is ideal for a better view of the Sat-Nav Maps program as it can be positioned in a better view of the driver while not obstructing the view of the road. Adjustable tilt and twist allows for a great range of movement to get the view just right. Its a touch screen, this makes it ideal for CarPlay.

CarPlay

This 7″ in car touch screen is Apple iPhone CarPlay compatible. This means you can connect the phone wirelessly to the screen and tap the screen as if it was the phone. The apps will respond and it can display Apple Maps or any of the phones apps on its own screen. The CarPlay software will reorganise the phone display to make better use of the large landscape display of the Universal Touch Screen. Everything suddenly becomes easier and safer to use on your phone as you drive.

Android Auto

Android auto screen sharing is also included in the universal car touch screen giving the same benefits as the Apple CarPlay does for iOS devices. Android apps will appear as if they are in the 7″ touch screen but actually live on the phone. Google maps, waze and spotify all work in android auto mode and make better use of the larger screen. Android Auto is limited to the wired version only.

Bluetooth

The Bluetooth feature will give you the bluetooth calls capability.

FM Transmitter

The low power FM transmitter will send the music to your existing car stereo. This will be like upgrading your factory car stereo to a 7″ touch screen apple car play radio. Simply tune your car stereo to an unused FM frequency and then set the 7″ screen FM transmitter to the same frequency. Now all the sound from the 7″ universal touch screen will play through your current car stereo. No need to add wires, cut cables or buy adaptors. Its all wireless and easy to use.

Backup Camera

The bonus feature of backup camera is included as an optional extra, be sure to choose the correct configuration at the store package selection. The backup camera does require a cable install and this may make the car 7″ touch screen less portable but much more useful.

Power

The power is supplied by the power socket adaptor that just plugs in and is easily unplugged for removal. It uses the standard 12 volt system but also compatible with 24v supplies. It is a low power device to help preserve the car battery and has a quick boot up time to start.

Aux Cable

The touch screen is aux cable compatible and ideal if your car stereo also has an aux in connection. Making the aux connection will synchronise the sound and you won’t need to use the FM Transmitter function.

Wear Sunglasses?

Adjusting the VCOM parameters in the touch screen can alleviate the blur when wearing sunglasses and viewing the car touch screen display.

Overall

Budget friendly CarPlay touch screen that needs no changes to the original car stereo.

The large 7″ screen makes viewing Apple Maps and Google Maps or Waze easier. The display can be fitted anywhere on the windscreen or dashboard for the driver to see (without affecting the view of the road).

Upgrades your car stereo to a touch screen car stereo with little cost and inconvenience. There is no need to remove your car stereo to fit this 7″ touchscreen car stereo upgrade.

Quick to boot and low power

Needs a phone to mirror. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both supported with wired and wireless options available.

Backup camera is not quite as well integrated as the android headunits but is a good compromise considering the budget friendly cost.

For its features and budget friendly cost we give this Universal Touch Screen 4 out of 5 stars.
A wireless backup camera with reverse gear detection option would help with the extra star.

You can find this universal car touch screen upgrade with CarPlay and Android Auto on Ali Express. The Ali service is hosted in China but there may be more local warehouses that dispatch the products at a closer location to the customer. Closer usually means quicker but buying directly from the country of manufacture can reduce costs to yourself considerably.
