    NavTool CarPlay on Touring Elite 2015

    Hi,
    Anyone have install the navtool carplay kit using the HAGRY connector for the Odyssey 2015 ?
    I have a touring elite with the Navigation and i want to know if it will work.
    Is it REAL CARPLAY (not mirorring HDMI out from iphone) ?
    I was also wondering how the navtool interface with the display, controlling the display, switching from NAV to NAVTool video input and how carplay siri take the voice? is there an aditional mic?
    What about navtool control? it comes with a cursor device?
    Thanks for you support!

    I'm curious if you ever learned more about NavTool. I'm curious, too.

    I have navtool installed in my 2015 Honda Odyssey Elite with navigation and added 3 cameras to the van. One in the front, 1 on the right side mirror and 3rd on the left side mirror. I have wireless module installed as well. (Bought from them for $100) so i can connect my Samsung Note 8 Android phone wireless. Honestly I haven't tried Apple Devices yet to it.

    It was a simple but complicated installation. Professional installer can install it easily.

    Connecting to navtool is simple. Press and HOLD Back button and Navtool menu will open up.
    On Android phone, click on Smartview and then connect to HOTSPOT
    few seconds later phone will mirror on the nav screen. (Not the audio Screen)
    Using your center ROUND button the dashboard, one can control the Navtool menu and switch different inputs.
    Navtool doesn't transmit audio at all. You have to connect your phone to AUX input using wire, or if your installer is smart, he can bypass the Aux input of the van to the navtool. so u don't need to connect aux cable. instead switch audio to Aux and wirelessly audio will stream to the van speakers.

    No Additional Mic
    Doesn't come with the CURSOR device. Built in Center Big Round button of the van controls everything.

    I have been using it for almost a year.
    Front camera works when you start driving slowly, once you pick up the speed, front camera will disappear.
    Right and Left indicator camera will come on when you use indicator.

    Tech support of Navtool is bit slow and cumbersome. Difficult to get the answer from them. Navtool seems like Operated by ONLY ONE person. Weather you wanna order, need tech support, only one person answers, emails, chats.

    You have to be super nice to him in order to resolve your question.

    Youtube, Waze, google, and everything else works like a magic.

    I will try with IOS device when i get a hold of Apple phone or device.

    Yes. Please include how the phone hooks up especially in regard to audio output. Also I'd like to see how you access car play from the head unit controls.

    I also installed the NavTool Carplay/Android Auto Module and as the OP states, it's simple but complicated . The installation video that the NavTool guy sent me (will post link in reply) was for the Acura MDX but apparently the same system is used in the Gen 4.5 Ody's and it was pretty straightforward. This is actually an RMA replacement for their original offering (which sucked) but it's now an awesome device. It supports both Carplay and Android Auto out of the box and you use your rotary control to do everything. It doesn't appear to support the channel up/down control on the steering wheel, however. The built-in reverse and blindspot cameras still work automatically with caveats. Below is a cobbled together video tour of the device. Don't judge my mad production skills.

    That is awesome! Thanks so much for going out of your way to do that. Question: Does it charge while plugged in?
