Finally a way to get wireless CarPlay!

Post by ChillCupra » Thu Mar 19, 2020 2:53 pm

I just received my dongle and while it isn't cheap, it works like a dream. Once your in the car it takes around 10-15 seconds to connect and carplay comes on. All automatic. Any questions please ask.

here is the one I bought:

Thanks ChillCupra, great to see a local 'vouch' for these...
I've been so tempted but you are right. They're quite pricey (argh it's gone up £15 since last time I looked!).
Suddenly the wireless charging mat seems to make sense too! Did you find any voucher discounts or anything?

Thanks again.

Just to warn you all that I ordered one of these after reading this post back in March. It still hasn’t arrived. It is still somewhere in China. SFC couriers marked it as return to sender on 20th of May. I requested a refund on 21st of May which I am still waiting for.

I don’t understand why it’s not wireless as standard.

I got an email from carplay2air on the 8th of June asking if I would consider not cancelling my order if they reship the device with DHL free of charge. To which I agreed. I got the device three days later and I have to say I’m delighted I changed my mind. It’s a super device & I haven’t had any issues with it. It’s actually more reliable than the cable.

Does wireless CarPlay still mean you have all the issues of resetting infotainment every now and then because it freezes?

Hi Bocca70, I still do get Freezing occasionally but not half as much as I did with the cable

That sounds promising and it is £100 at the moment.

Eyes in on this thread. I've yet to fit mine, but have been dreading it. Some hope given here.
