  1. My last car had the plug, and the new car is wireless. The new wireless is always connecting to the wrong phone, or refusing to connect to the right one. I wish I had the old fashioned switchboard simplicity of β€œthis plug, this phone”. I’ll just play this video backwards, and then bingo! That’ll work, right?

  2. I did a video on this about a year ago and it's a great device. The only issue I've ever had with it is in the summer time when the interior car temp gets really hot. On those days it can get really laggy until it cools back down to a decent temp, then it works fine. Have you experienced this at all?

  3. Looks like CarlinKit has released yet another version that claims to be even newer than the ones I tested in this video, and comes in a blue case. Hard to say if the new version actually has different hardware, or just upgraded firmware as in the case of the adapters I bought. Whichever version you buy, just make sure you upgrade the firmware for the latest fixes etc.
