Default 2012 Audi A3 TDI head unit upgrade

Copy from another section so more people can see it.

Recently bought a "new" fixed 2012 Audi A3 TDI, aside from bad front wheel bearings which make weired noises at the speed between 65-80mph, a loose passenger seat back cover, was also surprised to find out that there was no CD player coming with it but only the navigation plus. The car drives great, though.

Looking to upgrade the navigation system to an after market head unit with apple carplay, backup camera, Satellite Radio, HD Radio and CD player. Also like to have the steering wheel control.

Any good recommendations are welcome. Thanks.

Best recommendation is to have lots of cash.

"Lots of"=What?

I'm willing to pay around $500 for the hardware. I have a mechanic who can install it for cheap.

Does this look like a good choice?

I had something like that that I installed in my Excursion when I had it (Joying brand). It functioned properly but wasn't very good and don't expect to update it. The radio was definitely not HD but the Android part of it worked and connected to my phone, which was handy at times. I would not buy one again.

Man sounds I need a better one.

So I'm willing to use the "free" funds from Audi/Porsche to stretch the budget. What's the solution? Much obliged.
