Head unit GLX+ 2017 vs 2018

Postby Seana on Sat May 11, 2019 10:18 pm

Just picked up a GLX+ 2017. Mate has an '18 and was showing me the android play, google maps on the screen. I don't seem to have that, was there an upgrade between 17 and 18?

Cheers

Hi, it seems there was. I bought my MY18 GLX+ last year in August, it was built in January 2018 and it has the Smartphone Link Display Audio system with Android Auto etc. It also has single zone automatic climate control in place of the manual a/c.
I remember seeing late 2017 builds when I was looking at buying a demo, and these had an older touchscreen audio system that was different to mine. I'm guessing mine is among the first with the upgrade.

Out of curiosity, does yours have manual a/c or climate control?

Yep I think there was a change. I've noticed the antenna is in a different place; mine is on the side column where as the new ones it's a short in the front middle of the roof.

Mine has climate control. And it looks like the Apple Play thing, but not much good for me. I guess the only thing it really doesn't do is show the phone GPS, seems like I can do most other things.
