I tried using this with a Galaxy S9. It doesn't work.

Good luck. Hopefully it all works out.

I was able to work around fixing my inaccurate GPS position issue with multiple GPS apps installed. I reset my network and location settings on my iphone. Then on Waze (my main GPS app), I set the location data setting to "Always" instead of "Only when using app". Everything is working great after that.

That's awesome to hear! I hope I get the replacement soon. Hoping they send the new hardware and not the old.

Update: JoyeAuto has gone silent, as I suspected, and I've reached back out to AliExpress. They're now saying they will just refund my original purchase price. 3-5 days. We shall see. Pretty bummed because I liked having ACP. 🤷🏻*♂️

my experience with JoyeAuto has been pretty great, their installation guy on whatsapp has been helpful with the minimal amount of help iíve needed..

I ordered a second carplay adapter from them, this one being the wireless model for NBT (previous was wired model for CIC, but iíve since done an NBT retrofit)

I managed to get everything wired up and a quick test gives me results, however there is just so much cabling and so on that iíve not had the time to rip apart my dash to install it.

build quality on the new one seems quite a bit better, all metal, clearly labeled etc.. hopefully iíll have it installed tonight or at the latest this weekend.. I tried to get video of the installation but i really just wanted to get it installed.

I'm definitely interested.. but would like more details - does it require its own BT connection to the phone, or does it use the CIC's BT connection? Curious to know more details about it.

I installed my wireless carplay adapter for my NBT (which was also a retrofit, so i wasn't even completely sure it would work installing an adapter into an adapter)

worked perfectly. audio quality is perfect, sounds no different than listening to the NBT headunit.. better than bluetooth i think.

installation was a bit complicated because of the fact that i already had extra hardware in the dash (quadlock connector for NBT retrofit, NBT emulator, etc.) but we managed to get all the cabling tucked in to the side, and we relocated the NBT emulator as well as installed the carplay adapter up under the glovebox.

overall installation isn't really any more difficult than replacing a car stereo. the instructions are minimal, but clear enough.

this unit itself has a lot of options that you can configure, change the name of the bluetooth pairing, an EQ that works, other audio settings, carplay and android settings (i won't test android because i don't use android) really really simple and straight forward.















happy to answer questions and/or test some things out for people.

I'm skeptical because when I spoke with them in November I was told the same thing, it was coming "within a few weeks". They even quoted a price of $500 IIRC. Then when I talked to them again recently they said they would not be releasing wireless carplay for CIC at all. I think it just depends on who you talk to. If they do offer it, I will almost certainly be ordering one.

Justin666 Does the wireless version still require the AUX connection for sound output?

If it does, I assume the bluetooth connection streams audio to the carplay box and then the carplay box outputs it to the AUX in our car.

BTW: Your steering wheel is awesome! where you get it?

Could you test Android capability? It seems to be hit or miss in the product description.

you do use aux, but the aux connection is behind the headunit not running through the console. you connect from the media box harness to the quad lock connector that goes to the car, and it uses that.

carplay does not use bluetooth, bluetooth data transfer speeds aren’t sufficient. it uses bluetooth only to pair to the phone, after which it hands off to the wifi network which does all the streaming. audio streams over wifi which then goes to the internal aux... it’s like using AirPlay to play music from your phone to your stereo at home.

I find the quality to be much much better than bluetooth, and better than the previous version i used (CIC) via cable.

oh, and the streering wheel — that is a Nelson Racing Wheel. He’s an incredibly talented young guy in Colorado that builds these all by hand. you can customize whatever options etc. you want.. he’s VERY busy, but if you can get one it’s worth the wait. mine took about 3 months iirc.

prices are too low for what you get imo, he should be charging twice what he does.

it supports it (via cable only, no wireless) and i didnít connect the usb cable.. If i end up going back in there to do anything (need to install backup camera still) i will give that a try, but itíll be a while at best. sorry, itís mounted up behind my glovebox and the cables are short enough that i canít just pop it down easily.
