    Is it possible to have car play without having the specific car console? It would be nice to mount my phone on the windshield with a car friendly appearance!

    Nope, you'll need a Carplay compatible headunit to access the functionality. No way to display it on the phone itself.

    Car Play is built WITHIN the specific car consoles as a user interface (and part of the software)...so obviously it would be impossible to have it without the car console.

    Lots of people have custom built enclosures in dash boards for the various iPad models, which make more sense than the iPhone given their larger screen real estate and ability to do everything in landscape mode. Here's a particularly nice custom job, but it's also quite expensive (in relation to most other automotive entertainment options).

    Jailbreak it, use the app called "ignition" and you are done
