Love my 2016 MDX but want to hear about possible tech upgrades.

My wife and I just bought a nice 2016 MDX. I felt like a bit of a dunce because I thought it had the tech package and it turns out it did not as the labeling of all of the cards on the lot didn't specify which did and did not have it.(However the RDX listings were clear).

Well whatever, I'm over it. Then my wife realized Carplay might be a possibility which solves a lot of issues...then she may have realized that is NOT a possibility.

So, are there any solutions via upgrading the audio/stereo package in the 2016 MDX that won't compromise the integrity of the aesthetics of console?

Am I missing what the stock(non tech package) stereo is capable of?

Are aftermarket stereos/nav the only way to go?

Thanks

The cheapest and easiest upgrade is to add an aftermarket module that has Carplay. Navtool sells one that is plug and play. There's a thread on one of this forum for the details. I recently installed the non-carplay version of the Navtool module in my 2017 and it is working great.
