Antenna install & USB port.

Antenna has quite strong signal, it can be hidden with box behind unit, or if you wish you can stick it to under gear selector. 

For USB we recommend use extension lead and drag to the armrest.

Disassembly of the central tunnel

Now you can drag wifi antenna to the main tunnel and stick on to side of the tunnel. 

Similar with USB extension lead but you can drag it near seat straight to the armrest. 

Finish

Now you can test module if it works. Start MMI, wait few seconds and push and hold NAV button for few seconds (you should hear CLICK sound from the box) on mmi you should see that module has started. 

On the screen you’ll see Wireless its for wireless apple carplay, you can connect there your iPhone (all details to connect should be there).

Wired – it’s for wired connection and should works straight after you connect your android / iPhone via usb cable.
