Connection is relatively easy, great setup with OAP on the raspberry pi. One thing that is buggy and causes the iphone to easily heat up is A. The sun B. It drains the battery faster than normal C. The buggiest part is music and GPS running at the same time and or just GPS especially using Google maps it’s glitchy. I haven’t felt the dongle while driving down the road but I can only imagine it being hot.
Works amazing. Just what I was looking for my android aftermarket head unit.
Easy setup and works flawlessly with my iPhone. Had to update the box firmware to fix some lagging issues but that’s easily done in the autokit app

CarPlay integration with Binize Android 9.1 7” 2Din
Simply blown away at the seamless integration of Carlinkit (wireless/wired) for CarPlay on Binize Android 9.1 double din 7”. I am building a custom overhead console for a 60 series Land Cruiser and needed a shallow touchscreen CarPlay. Originally, I was going to use Carlinkit on a Raspberry Pi custom build touchscreen so that I could have a low profile touchscreen, but then changed my strategy to using a Samsung Tab 7” (testing on this also worked flawlessly) but my issue is charging and power management (key off / sleep / charging). Enter Binize and the Carlinkit APK integrated seamlessly. Was always afraid of Android H/U as I have had 3 prior and they all died from poor quality. Now, I will build on Carlinkit dongles, and Binize. I will post pictures of my tests and final product when the build is completed.
