    Has anyone tried using this yet? It looks like it should work but i havent seen any confirming evidence. New members are not allowed to post links, if you search amazon, it should be the 2nd link for 139.99

    Why would you want it unless you are searching for wireless carplay?

    Thanks for your input, I believe it will work. It's designed for cars that have integrated the car play functionality into the infotainment system.

    Can I ask the benefit of this? You still have to use the USB port in your car for this to work.. all it does is remove the cable from your phone but doesn't free up your USB port for music you have on a usb stick.

    I'm really only interested In having wireless carplay. That's the only thing this device is for, makes a factory infotainment system with carplay function wirelessly.

    For apple carplay it works well, connecting wirelessly as soon as I start the car. Android on the other hand won't work wirelessly with this.

    I haven't noticed exceptional lag, it uses Bluetooth so there are a few things that can hinder the connection but generally I haven't had issues.

    Did you have to install an APK file on the cars head unit for this to work or is it plug and play?

    Can you post a link now to the one you purchased?

    If this is the same product as CarPlay2Air, which is looks like it is, there is pretty bad audio and responsiveness lag. It uses Wi-Fi direct that then communicates with the USB port to display it locally.

    If someone wants to try it anyway, more power to them, but be warned.

    This arrived today, now I have wireless CarPlay, connects via. Bluetooth to my iPhone, no need to plug the phone in anymore to access CarPlay so much easier.

    Takes approx. no more than 10 seconds to connect then it works fine & no flickering is evident. The steering wheel buttons function with phone & iTunes.
    I only got it this afternoon so time will tell
