The more I play with it, the more sense it in makes sense to just plug it in. Carplay kills the battery so its wise to have it plugged into a power source to charge, so you may as well just run the Android USB out and plug into that to get the charge and Carplay via hardwire. I did find a trick (maybe it was known) so that Wireless Carplay doesn't always try to autoconnect (which can be annoying). If you select "Wireless Carplay" in the Autoplay app, but then change the connection type to "Manual" from Automatic, you can still have Wireless Carplay but it doesn't try to continuously auto-connect. Instead, if you want to launch Wireless Carplay, you just go into the iPhone bluetooth settings and connect to AutoPlay. This will initiate the wireless connection.Yes, I agree, this unit would really be something special if it worked seamlessly with the OEM functionality. They should have configured it to pair to the OEM bluetooth in the vehicle but I actually like having a wired connection. I will keep pressing them on this issue because I feel this Android unit deserves the attention and has the potential to be even greater than it already is. I would be willing to pay even more if they can get all the bugs worked out.
