    I really like how these guys make the installation videos...I've learned a lot from watching their videos. However, I'm confident that I can do a better job with the install...haha!

    Oh that’s good they’ve bought a unit like us

    Just watching their install now, I suspect they should have watched a few of the videos I’ve posted lol

    I assume the kit is the same as we have bought so nice to see the in boxing

    If you watch to the end of the video, you will see that they either ordered the wrong kit or they were sent the wrong kit by the supplier...that kit was for the L494. I think you have to be very specific on which Range Rover and what year build you have when you order from them. I also sent them photos of my screen with and without the trim panel on.

    Re: Alternate Replacement Head Units for older L405's

    Yeap watched it all through, TBF if they had watched any of the install videos I've found they would have a done a much better job but didn't do too bad for "winging it"

    I noticed the unit they bought was from MerryWay which was also mentioned on the last chinese installl video I mention, I wonder if Merryway are the manufactorer and the poeple we have bought from are a reseller.

    Yeah getting the right model is important, also, i was asked if I had dual view or not but this video shows this is a setting on the dipswtiches......

    So many questions, shame we don't have all the answers

    I can't wait to experiment with this new unit...I had some experience working in aftermarket car audio installation when I was much younger so this is going to be fun!

    Re: Alternate Replacement Head Units for older L405's

    I wouldn't hold your breath for delivery, I've been waiting 2 weeks now for it to ship and my guy ( you dealing with Andy ? ) said that if it doesn't ship today they are shut down for 4 days for labor day

    Oh the plus side he told me that the delay has been caused by the introduction of 4g to the board which sounds good as I'm not sure I'd even need carplay if I had Waze and Apple Music on the base Android system

    Re: Alternate Replacement Head Units for older L405's

    Yes, the sales person that I'm dealing with through email is Andy. I was told that they have 4 days off for labor day and I should receive my unit by next weekend. He didn't mention anything to me regarding the 4g upgrade but that's good to know! I think it's possible that they will have even more updates/improvements for this unit in the future but I hope we're getting the best they have for now. The more I think about it, I'm not sure if I will even use Apple CarPlay that much but it's good to have that option. The AirPlay/Mirror function will do just fine for me as I have the Google Maps App on my iPhone and I also have Pandora Premium App for music.

    I’m having the same thought, we only really use Apple Music and Waze which are both Android apps so if it has 4g this would mean it could be used totally independent of any phone

    I guess we shall see

    If your unit arrived by next weekend that would be cool, don’t suppose your close to Palm Springs as that’s where I will be 👍🏻

    I'm actually about 17 miles outside of Palm Springs. It would be cool to meet you in person and maybe you will get to check out my new screen if I get it by the time you arrive.

    I finally got an email stating that my unit will ship tomorrow...I'm not sure how long it will take to arrive but it's good to know that it's on the way!

    Re: Alternate Replacement Head Units for older L405's

    I’m thinking about doing this too. I added a second pioneer unit with screen mirroring so I could get nav traffic from pioneer on the main screen. This unit even has better routes and traffic avoidance. But the 10 inch screen will probably do that and more so it’s a much better option than my modification.

    LOL! No my friend, you're my role model. That's very creative what you did with the Pioneer unit but that's a little more work than I'm willing to take on. This new 10.25" unit will probably be our best option and it keeps everything looking OEM. I really like the screen in the 2017 L405 but it would probably be way to much trouble getting it to work in our older L405's. I'm sure the price of the 2017 OEM screen will also be a turn off.

    Re: Alternate Replacement Head Units for older L405's

    My new screen arrived yesterday and it was fairly easy to install...mostly plug and play other than the trim bezel that has to be removed from center panel to install the bezel for the new screen...that was a little tricky and I managed to damage my panel while trying to remove it like the guy did in the video. The android screen is great and the Apple CarPlay is really nice. However, when I select the original screen, it shows no signal. I will have to play around with it later today and figure that out. Updates coming soon...
