Habe diesen Carlink Adapter vom Autohaus Schuster empfohlen bekommen. Bei n echt begeistert. Funktioniert einwandfrei. Braucht einen kurzen Moment um die Verbindung aufzubauen, aber danach wie über das Ladekabel, nur ohne Kabel👍🏻
I haven’t had the opportunity to use the Carlink Kit a lot but from what I have seen so far it is flawless. It was super easy to set up and is easy to use, and connects quickly. If you are on the fence about this unit buy one now.
I love the product and it does what it says...mostly. I have found that my wired CarPlay will show the names of songs from Spotify on my drivers display, but the wireless Carlinkit will only show "Music" on the drivers display when Spotify is being used with it.
I contacted support and they were very quick to respond with a suggestion to try, but when I did try that, it didn't correct the situation.
So, it was easy to set up and it works great, but it doesn't work 100% as the wired connection would. It would be nice if an update could correct this.
