    I'm afraid I don't know. I don't use iOS, I have Android. The Nexus 6P was recognized without problems from the BlueTooth interface. I have made calls with the voice system and can see all of my contacts and such from there as well.

    Hopefully someone else with a 2016 Sync 3 system can tell you about Apple Play.

    Don't know about strictly UK versions but the 2016 Aussie version has that oversized cover complete with rain sensors and auto dimming mirror standard.

    In the 2017 cars, there is only one light in the trunk, instead of two before. At least in Germany ...

    What would be the reason/desire to switch from type 3 to type 5 mirror? Still no auto dim/home link either way correct?

    Type 5 appears to be the more universal wedge style mount. This means that it's easier to find a direct fit replacement for the standard rear view mirror.

    The list:

    Type 5 rear view mirror
    Sync 3 v.2.2
    Apple Carplay compliant USB hub
    Sony logos
    NA model has 10 speaker system included in RS1 model
    I'm guessing this is for Europe.

    My N-A 2016 already has:
    - Sync 3 (1.0)
    - Sony logos
