    RR Full Size 2016 vs 2017 Interface

    Hi everyone, I noticed that the 2017 has a new interface and was wondering if the 2016's are possible to upgrade to the new software? Thanks!

    Nope! Not possible!

    I mean anything is possible, if you spend money but we're talking thousands of dollars. It may end up cheaper to sell your 2016 and grab a 2017.

    if you plan on selling...no time like the present

    the longer the "new" 2016's sit on the lot the more they will be discounted. 2016's are taking a decent residual drop with the redesigned informant on 2017's......this was not the story before on the 405 models

    doubtful.
    I read somewhere in official documentation that the entire wiring bus/structure is completely different. That's usually a non-starter right there. It will not be a screen pop-out/pop-in retrofit.

    This is not a software issue. There are several hardware changes barring you from retrofitting this with ease and without issue. It would be far more simpler and cost-effective to purchase the newer version than attempting to source all the hardware and software needed and then tear apart your interior and then some how figure out the coding to make it all speak to each other. Live with what you have and enjoy it.

    Nope. The whole bus / transmission line interface is new. I don't think it's workable at all

    The 17 screen does fit inside a 16 screen space. Furthermore the wiring harnesses are plug and play too. I've already researched the screens. But and this huge, will the 17 screen work and not cause faults is the 1 million dollar question. My guess is it won't work or cause major faults since the 16 bcm isn't configured to work with a 17 screen and a 17 screen will probably screw up a 16 dashboard since the dashes are different too. It's just easier to get this, it works with our 16'S and mirrors our smartphones on the dash! http://naviks.com/i-21933042-2013-20...tegory:1136679 I have it and works great on my 16.

    Curious to learn more about the solution you mention below. Would you mind posting pics or a short video of it mirroring your phone showing how it works in your RR?

    If you click on the link, there's a perfect video explaining how it works. It looks like it's a "simple" airplay device.

    Yes it does and requires all controls via iOS device

    It's apples and oranges vs what op is asking

    mark1107, do you have this setup in your 2013 L405 as well? I wonder if anyone has even tried to fit the 2017 screen into a 2013-2016...

    Pray tell, what are the new features of the 2017 interface that are worth the upgrade?
