I am trying to replace my 2009 GTI head unit with something that supports CarPlay and a back up camera, and possibly the media buttons of a new steering wheel. What package should I buy?
If your multi-function steering wheel has 8 buttons, as shown below, then you must install the CANBUS simulator, otherwise your multi-function steering wheel will not be able to control RCD330 plus.
CANBUS gateway Simulator
If you plan to install a new multifunction steering wheel, then you must need better steering wheel accessories. Then it can directly control RCD330 plus without installing CANBUS simulator.
For the unit, if you only need carplay and don’t need the androidauto function, you can choose the lower price Desay 187B, the link is as follows.

If you want to have both carplay and android auto functions, you can choose one from the link below.

2.Standard original unit + rear USB.
3.Standard original unit + rear USB+ wireless carplay dongle
