No-ones done it yet. As far as I know, it's basically an extension of Airplay.
The problem being you need to either have an Apple Made for iPhone authentication chip in your device or you need to crack their authentication protocol.

CarPlay is a technology promoted by Apple to connect the automotive Head Unit displays to the Apple smartphones. CarPlay allows the Apple smartphone to project a screen to the Head Unit display over USB. The Head Unit can launch and control the applications exposed by the smartphone using touch and knobs / keys. Apple speech assistant software 'Siri' can also be invoked from the Head Unit steering wheel control. CarPlay also allows navigation application, along with voice prompts for directions, to be launched and controlled from the Head Unit. CarPlay is part of iOS versions 7.1 and above. The CarPlay SDK from AllGo provides a fully featured implementation which has been ported on multiple OSes and SOCs. AllGo also provides the associated iAP2 client, gadget driver framework, role switching and audio integration capabilities, thereby offering a one-stop solution to customers eager to go to production in the least amount of time.

This is the apk that control Carplay dongle...
...if someone can extract the app and study it.

For me the dongle is useless.... It is just one thing to make money!

I got a hold of one of these units. Here's how it works in some detail.


EDIT: added a video with a little teardown
