    What are my options? 2015 non-Nav Infinity head-unit died. I want Apple CarPlay.

    Just curious what the most affordable way to accomplish this would be. Is it possible to replace the non-Nav with the stock Nav? Is it a simple one-to-one replacement? What's the price of the stock Nav unit? Are their any after-market head-units that would be essentially be plug-n-play? I'm pretty comfortable with removing/replacing the head-unit, but when it gets into the wire diagrams I start to get a bit lost. What's the best way to do this? Any advise would be much appreciated.

    You can get a plug and play unit that allows you to use an aftermarket head unit of your choice. Check out your options Results for: 2015 > Kia > Optima > EX > 4-door > Sedan | Vehicle Fit Guide | Metra Online

    Even with a harness from metra, you will need to do some DIY wiring to get all the OEM functionalities working with the aftermarket head-unit.

    I installed one of those Android Double din units from Ebay (400.00) and everything looks and works like factory.
