I have recently bought Kia Seltos X Line 2021 top end model which has wired carplay. Hope it will work? Also will I have to pay additional customs duty here in India?

Your device works great. Is there a way to turn off CarPlay after it begins without unplugging the dongle?

Hi, I recently purchased this for my DS5 2016. When I plug it in to the USB I am not getting any screen pop up. Then it says please connect an apple CarPlay compatible device to the USB port. I have tried again and again but no luck. Also I have checked the vehicle list on apple and it should be compatible. If you can help in anyway I would really appreciate it as I would like to get this working. Many thanks

My dongle works great on my 2018 Jeep Wrangler but when I am near a WiFi signal it sometimes stays powered up and won’t disconnect

The U2W Plus we listed currently only to support vehicle models come with wire CarPlay. Main function of the unit is to convert wired CarPlay into wireless CarPlay. If you want to add CarPlay, maybe you need to install a CarPlay box to support this function.
