    The VW Maxx comes with 2 years warranty

    Does it come with any navigation?

    The VW Maxx comes standard with wireless Carplay and wired Android Auto. No adaptor required as it is built into the head unit. This means you can use your phone’s navigation through the head unit.

    You can then add on any mapping options you want as an optional extra.

    So how do i navigate with the built in Carplay / Android Auto?

    iPhone users can use navigation apps such as Apple maps, Google, Waze etc.

    Android users can use navigation apps such as Google maps, Waze etc.

    What is Carplay & Android Auto?

    Apple CarPlay lets you use a selection of your Iphone’s functions directly through your car’s built-in infotainment system.  Apple CarPlay is often more user-friendly and faster to respond than the standard features built into many infotainment systems

    Android Auto brings a selection of apps to your car display so you can focus while you drive. You can control features like navigation, maps, calls, text messages, and music.

    Do i need internet connectivity for Carplay or Android Auto

    Yes, as you are still using your phone, only now it is  appearing on the head unit with a specific interface designed for a head unit.

    Does Apple Carplay and Android Auto mirror my phone?

    No! Apple Carplay & Android Auto were designed with safety in mind and this is why not every app that you have on your phone will appear when in Carplay or Android Auto mode.

    Only Apple approved apps will appear in Carplay and Google approved apps will appear in Android Auto.

    Do i need internet connectivity for the Tom Tom maps?

    No, we preload the maps onto an SD card and you only need GPS satellite.

    If i buy the HEMA Off Road maps, does this include street navigation as well?

    No, the HEMA Off Road maps is not your traditional turn by turn navigation. It is an off road mapping system powered by Oziexplorer that uses real time tracking of GPS position (moving maps).


    Do i need internet connectivity for the HEMA maps?

    No, we preload the maps onto a USB and you only need GPS satellite.

    Does the ExplorOz Traveller app work with your head unit?

    Yes, we have worked with the developers to ensure that their app works with our head unit.

    Why should i buy this unit from Polaris when there are cheaper alternatives online?

    There are many reasons why we recommend our product to the cheaper alternatives you can find on the internet, some of these include the following:

    • We have been in business for over 40 years and have over 10 years dedicated experience with head units
    • In the off chance that something goes wrong with the unit you have direct access to support including phone and online support.
    • Our after sales support is second to none, often going above and beyond for our customers.
    • We have 2 specialist technicians that can repair all units in house (rather than sending them back to China for repair).
    • Some Auto Electricians will simply refuse to install cheaper no name alternatives.
    • We  offer the best optional extras
    • We can try and help you with any other extras not sold by us that you wish to add onto the head unit rather than palming you off. One particular example of this is we helped a customer with getting the Exploroz Traveller app working properly on his Universal Maxx head unit by sending a unit directly to the developers in WA. In fact this particular customer regularly reaches out to us when he wants to add something to his Universal Maxx and we work together to find a solution. In most cases we can find solutions. Sometimes in the rare chance we cannot but that doesn’t mean we won’t try our best.
    • We are very generous with our warranty periods. We like to look at all warranty requests as a case by case basis
    • We have experienced staff with over 10 years experience.
    I have some more questions, where can i ask them?
