    Agreed. I wish they (Audi and all other car makers) would design their nav/infotainment in a more modular way so that changes like this Google Earth nonsense could be worked with. These systems aren't cheap new and shouldn't be thought of as disposable.

    Or just provide a giant, dumb screen for CarPlay / Android Auto.

    Supporting older vehicles doesn't sell new ones. They'd rather give people more reasons to upgrade their cars than keep their old ones.

    This x1000. I would love to see this be a trend in the future but I highly doubt it for the same reason above.

    Perhaps not, but manufacturers need to realize that happy current customers are their best prospects to become future customers. Simple fact is people hold onto their cars longer now than ever before and supporting them during that time can only help that future retention rate.

    It's the paradigm shift in consumerism. Companies used to make and promote products that would last forever so lots of people would just buy their brand. Now companies promote the flashy newest product with the idea that everything is temporary. This is why most things are half baked and riddled with issues that they don't care to address (no maintenance) because they'll just release a new one in a year and people will blindly purchase.


    On a lighter note, audizine is running their calendar photo contest. Let's get some allroads in there!

    This sounds great in theory, but it wouldn't surprise me if there's a CarPlay/Audroid Auto 2 in a few years and as newer devices are released they aren't backwards with older Carplay/Android Auto interfaces.

    edit: just realized the allroad headliner will be different due to big sunroof. rest of the bits are there, though.

    Only the stuff from the B-pillar forward is useful to a wagon owner. C & D pillars are different, even the sunroof dial is different due to the wagons' pano sunshade. So this would get someone A & B pillars, sunvisors & clips, rearview mirror, grab handles and a start on the overhead console. For $400, it's a good deal on all that stuff, but finding the rest isn't easy.
