    I have a car without builtin CarPlay and can't add a new stereo.

    Is there anyone who makes a CarPlay touchscreen I could use in the car to get the features. Reality is all I have to do is then connect the screens audio to my car's AUX IN.

    thanks.

    Why can’t you add a new stereo? Not really sure what you want, what’s a CarPlay touchscreen?

    I have a fairly new car that doesn't support CarPlay. not going to rip out the stereo that has integrated car functions....

    So the question is, is there anyone who makes just a screen I could add in order to get CarPlay?

    There is no such thing as a CarPlay addition, it’s either a new stereo or no CarPlay

    To answer your question, no there is no such thing as what you're describing. CarPlay is a feature that is integrated into a complete stereo system as opposed to just a screen that mirrors the phone. Your only option is a software update from your car maker to add CarPlay to your existing stereo (sometimes a possibility), or completely replace your stereo and add the necessary add-on modules to connect the other features running through your factory stereo.
