In this tutorial, we will see here in pictures how to install Apple Carplay on a Mercedes CLA Class of 2014 and therefore with a version NTG 4.5 4.7.

Installation time: 30-40 minutes

Inventory: Carplay module and wiring.
So we count the module, a wifi antenna, 2 LVDS (video) cables, the power cable, the auxiliary cable, and a USB cable (no need to connect it if you use the device wirelessly).
