As Dedhawk mentioned. It just a connector. You plug it to the USB port where you use your wired connection. On the other end of the product there is another usb Wheee you can plug your phone and it becomes wired (long trips charging and CarPlay)

Ahhh I was wondering if they plugged it into a separate port behind the headunit or something else.

Installed Verus Engineering GT spec hood louvers originally made for a S550 Mustang. Wasn't too bad. I checked my measurements more than 3 times to make sure everything was symmetrical xD

They look nice but probably aren't a good idea here in Florida with all the rain.

New BRZ arrived. Was delivered yesterday. First wash today. Tomorrow Performance Package wheels will be installed. New larger brakes, possibly Performance Package Brembo's are next.


Performance Package wheels are essentially new. Previous owner removed immediately after purchase and sold them to me. Will be ceramic coating those this evening! Fun begins with the new machine. Very impressed with the BRZ!


The wheels as you see them on this photo will be available for sale. They will have about 60 miles on them when removed tomorrow.

I do not see a light bulb glowing inside. It may be hard to find a real one, but just 60 watts keeps the inside dry and nice over long periods of time.

Also wondering this: how's the latency if you compare directly wired CarPlay vs adding in this wireless adapter?

Personally Id just keep an extra cable and swap it in for long drives. Wireless is good for when Im running to different errands and in the car for 10-15 minutes, get out, do errand, come back to the car, repeat. That way I wouldnt need to keep pulling it out of my pocket and plugging it in, plus vice versa.

Why not have a power adapter from the glovebox through that cigarette lighter port?

Why not just plug 1 cable into your phone and be done

I agree with you; they want the wireless shit, not me! But I provide the solution for what the customer requests, if there's a way to make it happen.
