I have a Lexus that came only with Apple Car Play. My husband owns an Android phone and it wasn't very pleasant for him not to be able to connect his Samsung to my car. But wow, I have wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The only issue I get is that on Android Auto, the Google Maps display area does not occupy the entire Lexus media display. it looks small and compressed. But finally, I have Android Auto on my Lexus. Thanks.
Works a treat. Little slower to initialise in the system than plug in cable but insignificant on any trip by time reversed out of garage it’s all done. And it’s sooooo much more convenient. I have already recommended to a friend. Easy to instal and I used double sided tape in roof of front console so wouldn’t even know it’s there.Great product.
Simple but magical little device for Apple Carplay
I have been having a wired CarPlay enable audio system in car and it comes with it own problem. You need to tether it and sometimes the quality of the wired cable determines the battery charging and all other stuffs. This is a simple and little device that connects to the existing system and enables wireless CarPlay within seconds. It works literally like a magic. I just keep the phone in my bag or pocket and it automatically connects. There is a minor (less than a second) lag but it is barely noticeable. I found this extremely helpful. Recommend this to anyone who has an old car and old audio system but wants the benefit of the latest phone audio tech.
It could have been the perfect device if it had the option to add more futures and can play video app such as Netflix.
A must update feature to be considered by the makers.

I am very satisfied!! it is a complete entertainment android console with phone and navigation capabilities. small dimensions, very quick and easy configurable in an acceptable price. one of my best buys without doubt
I was getting super frustrated with my wire, adding to the fact that sync 3 is very sensitive to the type of cable you use for CarPlay, after I got this i was half half skeptical but it works like a charm slight delay but very minimal, now the only time it doesn’t work is when the ford sync 3 decides not to work for my drive so the car link eliminated my cable issue. Overall great
