Occasionally carplay not launching otherwise flawless
I've had 4.0 for about a month now and device has been working just fine. maybe 3 occasions in this time that when I start my car (Passat GTE) carplay just doesn't launch all (phone connects to cars bluetooth fine) until i restart carlinkit by plugging cable off&on.
Works well, took some time to setup, but SIM card worked as well as bluetooth Android play.
So far so good. Installed SIM card and 128GB SD card into unit. Took some time to get the SIM card working, but eventually it connectted and I was able to use the device on my ATT cell service to stream video as well as make calls. The Bluetooth wireless android connect seems to drop from time to time, but when it's connected, it's pretty solid. So far I'm happy with the unit, camera works well to. Will have to see how long it last, winter's here so we'll see how it deals with cold temps, but over all I'm happy with the unit dropping a star due to the bluetooth wireless android play disconnecting every now and then.
Carplay generally works, after a taking a bit of time to connect. Android auto is too buggy to use. It doesn't hear me for voice prompts, and the pause/play functionally from the car is somewhat broken, and it has a few other random bugs
Arraigned last week in New Zealand for my 2019 Jen Grant Cherokee…
Great product, a tiny lag from time to time, but not enough to be annoying…works great- would highly recommend….just awesome, connects really well between my wife and my phone when we get in the car. Simple plug and play
