United Kingdom 2013 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Fuji White
Android/CarPlay unit for FL2 2013

I have a FL2 2013 and was looking to get Apple CarPlay into it, I have the small 4" black and white LCD screen.

Does anyone know of a unit that could replace the small screen with a 7" screen?

I've got an android tablet with a Garlinkit which does the job, I just have to keep recharging the tablet as it can't be charged whilst the Garlinkit is attached. Also, if anyone has seen a mount that I could use to mount the tablet over the 4" screen, maybe with a small suction cup that might be good.

heya, did you have any luck with this? I have the same car and it seems it's the only one who won't support any android head unit very sadly so looking to get a tablet hooked up or plug in an android unit somehow

The best I could do was buy a amazone fire tablet and attach a carlinkit to it which gives me apple carplay. It's just a pain that I can't charge the tablet whilst the carlinkit is connected.

I think you can get an otg-y cable that is separate and has an entry for carlinkit and another for power to keep it charged. I might go down that route too as I can't seem to find anything to power an android head unit unfortunately.

Let me know if you have any luck with the cable, I tried a couple but they didn't work for me.
