    Wanted to test this out myself, since there weren't any videos on it. I made my first youtube video testing out the carlinkit wireless carplay adapter. Works awesome so far! Be my first subscriber? 1f642_d7544973bc2a9d9e4623688d78d5d71a49fbd691.png Stay tuned for reliability test.

    Neat I like it. Thanks for the quick and informative video! Seems to boot up in a reasonable amount of time.

    I have one of these. Works great. Been using it now for about a month, but I got my GF one for her car over a year ago. Both are working fine. Every now and then, it takes a while to connect after start up. Kind of like it 'hangs up'... all it takes to push it into connecting is to pull the USB out and re-insert it. Never had to do that more than once, and it has only happened on a few rare occasions. 99 times out of 100, it connects and pops up on the screen within 30 seconds or so.

    Aside from that minor issue, it is SOOO nice to start my car, put my phone wherever I want (in my pocket even), and Car Play just comes up. All my phone apps are available on the touch screen... Spotify (music, podcasts, etc), Apple Music, Amazon Music, Audible Books, Apple Podcasts, etc... No plugging in required.

    The device is tiny (about 2" X 3.5"), fits in that otherwise useless cubby behind the forward cupholder - out of the way.

    This is the exact one I purchased. No issues so far over the last 2 days, running strong and connects to carplay about the time it takes to buckle my seatbelt etc. It's running at $78 right now.

    The only thing with that small USB is that it would stick out and be pretty visible (I'd probably accidentally hit it all the time). I'm going to get an angled usb C cable and 3M it to the top of the storage so it's basically hidden. I personally have no use for the storage in front, but your mileage may vary!
