Okay all, I have been searching and cannot find a single din apple carplay receiver. I can find plenty with a flip out screen, but I just want a single din without a flip out screen.

Has anyone seen one of these? If so please send me a link.

I don't think there are any.

This kind of makes sense, considering the available space on single DIN to fit the CarPlay UI.

For comparison, having CarPlay on a single DIN would require the screen height to be smaller than the width of the original iPhone.

I am not saying it isn't possible to have something like this, but just improbable for Apple and aftermarket brands to develop something this.

I guess there is a reason for you not to do the flip/pop-out type?

The reason for not wanting a flip out is because it’s for my Harley and I’m worried about the vibration.

Those are all double DINs or flip outs, the OP didn't want a flip out:
Actually, if you look at them all they are single DIN bodies with screens attached, either flip or mounted but the bodies are all single DIN bodies.
Okay, I see now.

I am not sure if any of those will be a good fit for the OP's use though.

I wonder if a single DIN like the Pioneer Smartphone Receiver would be better suited to your bike?
I think something like this would probably be okay, with minimal interference of other things.

I think the only real problem you might have is your phone obstructing the speedo.
I don't think it would obstruct very much of it.

If it does, the OP can get a speedometer app.

Well, if you're looking for an excuse to get a new Harley the 2019 BOOM! Box GTS system supports CarPlay...
https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/en/owners/audio-navigation/boom-box-gts.html

Otherwise maybe you can go the route most go with 3rd party installs in cages...a dash adapter. But for a Harley, the adapter could cost more than the HU. Check out the kit Fat Heads Cycles offers. It includes a huge inner fairing replacement adapter...

I’d love a new bike, but not in the budget and mines paid for!

I saw that inner fairing you’re talking about, very cool idea, too pricy for me though.
