It is possible in theory, but wave bye, bye to most of the functionality. You would require custom firmware to support the Linux kernel then be able to communicate with all the CANBUS for vehicle systems. I don't even know what is the base OS for VW media systems.

You are better off swapping the unit for one of the Chinese Android systems and a fitting kit. Or get an Android Phablet and mount it nearby so you get the weather icon and all the android icons.

Personally, I cannot see one gain for the above. Potentially bricking your media system for a less functional setup and warranty issues. Just use Android Auto for you Android fix.

The built in android auto just doesn't work great in my country there is no support at all. And each time you go into the car you need to connect your phone to a cable to use android auto and it is just annoying!!
I wanna try to replace this shitty system to a chinese one but there is no information at all how to do it online
