    Wireless CarPlay

    I know there’s now a VCDS/OBDEleven solution for 2020 model year A4/S4/A5/S5 models but for earlier model years or for people who don’t want to buy a VCDS/OBDEleven dongle (which comes in handy quite often), the CarPlay2Air dongle is on sale for the next three days for $99 (as opposed to the...

    Wireless CarPlay

    Wait, which phone and operating system do you have? Previously, only Google phones supported Wireless Android Auto. I believe as of Android 11 it's extended to all phones, but ... does your phone have Android 11? :sweatsmile:

    Wireless CarPlay

    20103 is allegedly correct for both 5F and 75. Just as thorpemark1 stated, some sources state that the hood has to be kept open (sounds dumb to me but, desperate times!). Don't worry about changing the channel, I believe 149 is an "outdoor" channel. The module 75 adaptations are what I was...

    Wireless CarPlay

    You're almost there, Evgeny, don't lose faith! There is a default security access code you can enter and if that doesn't work you can calculate a "valid one" by entering some data from your car (like VIN, etc.). Just search online, you'll find what you need.

    Wireless CarPlay

    Problem solved! Traded in the 2020 S4 for a 2019 e-tron, even if it means “****” in French! Check out a 2019 or 2020 Q7, Q8, e-tron, etc. You will quickly find out that the MIB3 screen found in the S4 is actually a step down from the MIB2+ screen in the 2019s. The latter is faster, more...

    Is Apple CarPlay wireless?

    Thank you for offering! If you have dual screens (not counting the virtual cockpit) or a 6/7/9, it’s not an issue. It’s models 5 and below with a single infotainment screen (no climate screen) that seem to have the issue. I mentioned elsewhere that they’ll probably unlock wireless CarPlay with...

    Wireless CarPlay

    https://www.slashgear.com/audi-mib-3-infotainment-system-my2021-cars-whats-new-11620100/ This article supports what I believe is the case with 2020 A4/S4 models. Long story short, the new update didn't make much of a difference. What may eventually make a difference is upgrading to the highest...

    Wireless CarPlay

    Yo, @Digiacomo, there is major Audi Connect update underway since last night. Will be completed Saturday night. Anyone who wants to verify can call into Audi Connect Support ((877) 505-AUDI, option 2) and listen to the recorded message. Meanwhile, the myAudi website shows the same phone number...

    Wireless CarPlay

    Well, the dongle that was a dud in my car worked just fine in a 2019 (which is supported). No kidding, this MMI is very challenging.

    Wireless CarPlay

    For sure. However, this dongle acts like a CarPlay client and host itself. That’s how it bootstraps into the car’s MMI. It works on a slew of car makes and models. The customer support person finally said “no, you can’t have the current firmware, that’s not how it works, you need to update it...

    Wireless CarPlay

    They told me they’re anticipating a new firmware release before the end of Q2. Their last version is from January. We’re going around and around as I ask them for the January one. I need to find a different car with wired CarPlay to rule out something wrong with my car. I’m pretty sure the...

    Wireless CarPlay

    Thanks for letting me know. For some reason the MMI is not recognizing the CarPlay2Air dongle whereas it sees my iPhone just fine. If it's not one thing, it's an Otter. ;-)

    Wireless CarPlay

    So I finally gave up and ordered the CarPlay2Air dongle. Has anyone had any luck with these guys? I bought it (the "real deal" one, not its generic brand equivalent, the CarLinkIt), it arrived in about 5 business days which wasn't the 2-3 promised but good enough, then I plugged it in and...

    Is Apple CarPlay wireless?

    Man, why does everyone act like I’m speaking Greek? Seriously though, it’s not supported in this particular car. They take the time to spell it out in the owner’s manual. A lot of people get confused because they see a face lift MMI and think “well, surely...” ... first of all, don’t call me...

    all I know is it’s all legal!
