Statement: 3.0 is just the code name of a software update version. Currently 2.0 and 3.0 are exactly the same.
If your phone is iPhone, and your vehicle supports wired CarPlay or these Aftermarket Head-Units (Alpine/ Pioneer/ Kenwood...) , you should choose theCarlinkit U2W Plus (2.0). Else you should chooseCarlinkit Autokit Product.
The Carlinkit Wireless CarPlay Dongle is the first wireless(Bluetooth + Wifi) CarPlay dongle on the market. With the 2.0 Version update, Carlinkit is the market standard in terms of stability, compatibility and performance.
The U2W Plus dongle is a wireless CarPlay adapter which is suitable for 98% existing wired CarPlay-enabled vehicles and wired CarPlay-enabled receivers, such as Alpine and Pioneer in the aftermarket. More compatible vehicles are in the SUPPORTED LIST but we just test some vehicles.
✅ Wireless- Our market leading Carlinkit 2.0 U2W dongle will make your wired CarPlay wireless(via Bluetooth and Wifi), allowing for a complete wireless experience.
✅ Auto Connection- One of the greatest benefits of the Carlinkit 2.0 is Auto Connect. Simply start the vehicle and your Carlinkit is already connected.
✅ Plug and Play- The Carlinkit Dongle has a USB-C Female port, but with most CarPlay enabled vehicles (and aftermarket installs), it features a female USB-A port, and the Carlinkit Dongle will attach to this port via USB-A on the opposite end of the cable and allow the Carlinkit to connect to your “Apple CarPlay” USB socket.
✅ With your Carlinkit 2.0, you now can use all your phones' wired charging capability. Previously, you had to keep your phone wired to use CarPlay, Carlinkit 2.0 now solves all those issues.
✅ Never worry about messy cables again with Carlinkit 2.0. You can simply tuck away your Carlinkit Dongle into the center console or glove box and go wireless.
✅ Your Plan B - If your lightning cable goes bad, that means no CarPlay. Consider your Carlinkit wireless as your plan A, and wired CarPlay as plan B, allowing you the convenience in any situation.

Minor intermittent freeze with multiple connections
I have 3 iPhones programmed to my carlinkit. I have no issue when I am connected, however, my kids do experience some occasional freezing of their music when they are connected.
It is nice to be able to eliminate the white iPhone wire.
Funziona benissimo su Opel Insignia Grand Sport
Easy to update, install and use. It’s a winner
Good but laggy
I got this because the constant plugging and unplugging of iPhones into Kias was a pain. Also, cables would get knocked and connectivity would be lost
The Carlinkit was the solution and it is mostly a very good solution.
Generally the phone connects to CarPlay first time without any issues. Occasionally the Carlinkit needs to be plugged and unplugged for it to work and sometimes the phone just doesn’t seem to connect. These are minor niggles. The other issue is the lag, advancing a podcast from the steering wheel can be tricky and following satnav in towns can be confusing due to the lag
However definitely worth the money and it is possible that firmware updates would improve the product
I Have a 2021 Ford F150 and my sink system was having issues so I bought one of these And so I could bypass the sink basic system and make my phone calls. At first I was unhappy with it because when I would push the voice button on the steering wheel everything would switch out of the boards CarPlay with this unit and go to the basic panel from the Ford sink and then I realized if I held the voice button down and Siri came up then I could tell it what to do and everything work so yes this is a very good system it seems to bypass really well and I even just tried it with him iOS 15 and it seem to work good with that
more than 20 days and the product has not arrived
I have not received the product, I do not know where it was sent ... can you help me .... thank you
Brilliant, works flawlessly.
Best accessory you can buy if you don’t have wireless CarPlay. Not having to plug in every time you get in the car is amazing. Setup was easy and it just works. You won’t regret it.
Plug and Play worked flawlessly without any hassle. Would definitely recommend have
ordered 2nd one for daughter
