Do you have another device called GPLink? If you edit that device does it modify the settings properly?

If modifying GPLink doesn't work, then maybe try forgetting the device and re-pairing?

I had an issue when I tried switching to Airplay for streaming - the device didn't like switching back to Carplay after that. I think the issue stems from the device broadcasting two SSID's depending on what mode it wants to be in and the phone has trouble deciding which one is the primary.
Ah, there we go. Thank you! I didn't realize GPLink was the permanent name of the Carplay device since it would show the other SSID as well at the bottom, and I could never click on it. But now that you've confirmed the correct device name, I can go in and customize GPLink as with all others.

Had to clear a few codes after finishing up, but all working well now, including USB (the cable had detached itself from the box in the back after I reinstalled the head unit...damn it's tight back there!). The audio quality is better than the Kremersino v1 as well, and the splice into the OEM mic works much better than the aftermarket mic that Kremersino unit used. Definitely a better unit!

Glad it works - yes it's very snug, making sure the cables are neatly routed certainly helps. I had my USB harness almost completely in the void by the glovebox to make more room but getting the head unit back in is still a PITA theres very little clearnace and I know those cables are getting smooshed once I screwed it in. I very occasionally will notice a gremlin with my rear view camera popping up with a color channel missing, but it always goes away so I haven't bothered chasing it down, suspect that connection is a little wonky.

Anyone run try to run the reverse camera manually by using the rear fog light circuit as the triggering source?
