Anyone tried installing the 2020 or 2021 head unit in a 2017? I'd love to give it a try and get wireless carplay

Thank you.
How much should I expect to pay for these? $250 for the screen and $250 for the receiver?
My 2017 already has the 8.4" screen with NAV. Can I skip the screen, and just buy the receiver?
Thats about the price they go for generally, I have seen them cheaper at times. I think I paid $400 for both. Unfortunately, yes, you still need to change screens. The older screen is not compatible.

Don't think anyone has tried that yet....you could be the first !!..I guess it depends on the plugs and if the software is compatible.

You will have the change the screen, but if you have the old 8.4 screen, the updated screen is soo much better. In fact, I enjoy the upgraded camera quality more than CarPlay.

I am looking to do that as well. car-part.com has a 2021 pacifica part available, when I reached out to them, they asked for $1300 just for the screen, so I passed. If you are nearby, you can probably try directly. AFAIK 2020 does not have wireless carplay, only the 2021 does.

My dealer is happy to loan me a 2021 pacifica for the weekend and I could probably try to swap the parts temporarily to check, but I feel like that's not the right thing to do, so haven't done that.

You can always add a wireless carplay adaptor if the Uconnect 5 unit does not work out.
