I want to replace my oem radio in my 2017 MK with an Apple CarPlay unit and add a backup camera. Any recommendations / advice would be appreciated.

I went with an XTrons Android head unit, which is Apple Car Play compatible... but I don't have any Apple devices, so I can't tell you how that part of it works from personal experience. I can tell you that everything else works great, so I'm reasonably sure that part will too. The best part though is the fact that it's a direct-fit unit, so no ugly dash adapters are needed, and it came with absolutely everything needed to install it, including a CAN bus box and all wiring, so it's totally plug and play.

There are a couple pictures of it in my showcase: My Patriot

Thanks for the information! I checked out the Xtron website and they only list Patriots 2009-2011. Which model do you have?

I've got the PBX69WRJ, which works fine in my 2014 Patriot.

Where did you order yours from? I’ve emailed the manufacture twice with questions and they haven’t responded.

I purchased mine from the Xtrons website. I emailed them once to ask them if an Android update was available and the were quick to reply to tell me no. I would expect they might take longer to reply now, considering the whole corona thing going on.
