Now have wireless CarPlay

Discussion in 'Hyundai Kona Electric' started by hwitten, Jan 6, 2020.

  1. The biggest reason for using CarPlay very selectively (almost not at all) was that I had to physically connect it via USB.

    Gadget from https://carplay2air.com solved that.
    Installation (pairing) was super easy.

    Will have to wait for next drive to see how it behaves out in the wild but so-far the test(s) in garage are very encouraging.

    Looks neat, it would be cool if there was a wireless android auto version.
     
  3. I think there are even more, and cheaper, wireless AA adapters available than for iPhone.

    Can you use the buttons on the steering wheel with this one?
     
  5. Haven't tried that. Will give it try next trip and report back.

    Hey, so is it worth it?
     
  7. Worth it to me. Much more convenient for occasional use. Kona Nav is my preference but it's nice to go CarPlay as needed without having to stop to plug it in.
    One caveat... when starting out from home it's not happy until I'm out of the yard and away from my own WiFi. It sorts itself out if just left alone.

    Small question: Will it work with a small iPad as well ? Usually Carplay requires iPhone only, but may be this one..iPad ?
     
  9. The device (iPad) would need to have CarPlay available in Settings. None of mine do so I suspect the answer would be no. Would be nice though.
