    Ok, NOW it’s a sham. Support just told me that in order for this to work, the iPhone cannot have any other Bluetooth connections, including Apple Watch. Well I’m not unpairing my watch just to be able to use CarPlay wirelessly, so I’ve now requested a full refund. What a waste of time.
    That’s not true at all. I have a watch connected and it works fine for me. So it doesn’t work with your CRV?

    Haven’t tried yet and probably won’t. Already spent too much time on this. Time to return and move on.

    Just be careful because when I was fighting with them about cancelling my order they made it a point to inform me that I am responsible for shipping back to Hong Kong and if the package is open they will not refund 100% of price. I’m guessing a restocking fee. They also suggested I be able to track a package because “they get lost”

    Their customer service really is the worst. Now it’s just durning the setup that you need to disconnect your device. Dude, I’m sorry it’s been a headache for you. My bad for bringing this device to your attention

    Sorry to hear about your troubles with what appears to be a very sly and underhand company.

    As I previously said, my Carlinkit unit appears to be identical in every way bar name, and I also have my Apple Watch connected with no adverse effect.

    I hope you can get a full refund as they’ve been very vague and untruthful about the reason(s) why you’re having problems.

    It's great that you've been sharing this "misadventure" with regular updates. I'm sorry that this has been such a pain, but the knowledge you've shared has and will continue to benefit many.

    Excellent news. I was starting to feel bad that you bought a lemon lol. I had some connectivity issues a few weeks ago so I updated the firmware on it and it’s back to working like normal. I’m glad I took a leap of faith with this product

    I also found Carlinkit which looks very similar unit. What's the difference? Any one knows?

    As I pointed out in my posts above I’m pretty sure the only difference is the name. I suspect it’s the same Chinese unit being sold by two different companies, even the IP address for the firmware update page is the same for both units, with the same update instructions.

    On CarPlay2Air it’s pretty simple so I imagine it’s the same for Carlinkit
