I have an '04 CTT and needed to upgrade my headunit for bluetooth, rear view camera etc. It wasn't cheap per-say but well worth it. Here's what I purchased: 1. Nav-TV (most expensive part purchase, around $600) You cannot upgrade your stereo without this piece unless you want to replace the speakers and add an amp. My factory Bose speakers actually sounded better after this install. 2. You can add what ever head unit you want, but I added the Pioneer AVH-4100NEX which has apple carplay, Android Auto, plays CDs and DVDs and also has a SD card slot. Crappy part? It doesn't have any front USB plugs, but 2 in the rear. 3. I added a review camera I bought off of eBay for $20. 4. I went to a local shop and they only charged me $300 for install since I supplied all my own parts. I could have done it myself, but I needed a custom USB plug installed in the center console and the installation of the rear view camera, both of which were above my comfort level. Parts: 1. Nav-TV $600 2. Pioneer 4100-NEX $525 3. Pioneer Navigation Unit $120 (waste of money since I used my navigation on my iPhone thru Apple Carplay) 4. XM Radio Tuner Add-On $45 6. Rear View Camera $20 7. USB Cord for center console $30 8. Install $300 Only downside I can think of is the steering wheel controls do not work. I bought a $45 converter to integrate the steering wheel controls but it would not work. The 4100 unit does come with a wireless remote.
I purchased an '04 CTT about a year ago and have been slowly bringing the technology up to date (rear view camera, up-to-date stereo)... I am interested in adding TPMS, and there's one that is compatible with my Apple Carplay stereo: http://www.atbs.com.tw/product_TPMS_Module_E.htm https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tpms/id542118415?mt=8 Was wondering if anyone else had success using something different. There are plenty on eBay that use bluetooth and a simple Car-Lighter plug-in monitor (which would work for me as well): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-TPMS-Tire-Pressure-Monitoring-System-Wireless-4-Sensors-Cigarette-Lighter/331737485434?_trksid=p2050601.c100085.m2372&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D37338%26meid%3D9f6f9709ad62447ebc31238b1a670990%26pid%3D100085%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D371749145456%26clkid%3D734893039771099753&_qi=RTM2247627
