TLX CarPlay Upgrade?

Now that the 2018 TLX has been announced and will feature CarPlay, does anyone think there is a chance that Acura will offer it as a retrofit to older models? A friend purchased a Hyundai last year that did not have CarPlay and received a notice from Hyundai that they would be offering it as an upgrade for older models since it has now become available. From what I can tell, the screens in the new 2018 model look identical to my 2016 model. Hoping I will be able to get it, I really do not like the current TLX navigation system.

Personally I think it will only be available on the new models.

There are a few threads discussing this already. The search feature will help with some of these type of questions.

Swap '15 Infotainment unit to new '18 w/ Android

Update to Apple CarPlay/Android Auto possible?

Apple CarPlay

2017 MDX SH-AWD, Modern Steel Metallic, Ebony Interior, Navi

Highly doubt this will happen. Honda's tendency has been to not provide software updates to owners unless it's absolutely necessary (e.g. a warranty or recall thing).

Not a chance in living **** this will happen.
It's not just 'adding carplay' they are updating the whole OS.
Hyundai just added the feature to its system that was already in place.

Nope. The 2018 has a capacitive screen.
