Doesn't recognise anything's connected to it at all, and the seller is proving no help so I'm going to have to cut my losses.
It wasnt instant, it was a build up from it not recognising a phone was connected for a few mintes, to getting longer and longer until eventually nothing.
On the up, guess this means I can order a new wireless version. In terms of sellers of these, is there a clear better seller/brand yet or are they all much the same? I'll be getting the 3G+ version fyi
I just upgraded to the Carlinkit wireless from wired and wanted to share my experience.
CarPlay starts almost instantly you plug in, and it takes only a few seconds on wireless. And most of the time, CarPlay starts automatically, you don't have to hold the Nav button down. I love it. I love that I don't have to take my phone out of my pocket.
The first unit I received didn't function. I emailed them and got a response via WhatsApp. Alex, patiently instructed me to debug the issue. Unfortunately, it was a hardware issue. I shipped the unit back and they sent me a new one. They refunded the shipping cost. Honestly, I wasn't expecting such a great customer service.
I didn't want to spend the money to upgrade initially of course but I am glad I did. The responsiveness of the new version is great.

Happy to answer if there are any specific questions.
I bought the rsnav kit, which seems to be the same as the carlinkit mentioned above. I’m confused about two wires that don’t seem to be mentioned anywhere — the grey/black and green/black wires in the attached photo, which are associated with the quadlock connection. Any one know where these go?
Apologies if it's been asked before, I've done a few searches and I cant find a solution.
My car is a 2008 S5. It has a B&O stereo with a 6 disk changer and a plug in the glovebox that works with a 3.5mm jack.
The controls are below the gear lever and it has a button/joystick in the centre of the "Wheel"
Will this system be compatible with the carplay gizmo from Ali express ? It's a Japanese car imported into NZ and someone else had trouble as posted earlier but the post has no replies.
Hi - I have installed same unit - connected it correctly (I assume because screen gets power and everything works like it did - plus phone charges when plugged in) - however, I can't get the Carplay to show up when holding Nav (have tried for 3 seconds and longer). I have gone into media and I have Aux 1 and Aux 2 available - have tried both and then held Nav once in Aux 1 or Aux 2 - and still no Carplay. Any ideas anyone?
I just imported my car (Audi A5 2011) from Japan (I am in NZ) and when I click and hold Nav - it says Initialising Navigation (as it won't work here as it isn't set up for NZ) - but does that matter? I would have thought not - it is just the Nav button you are pushing - nothing to do with the Nav screen itself?
TL;DR I'm a hard driver. I need new brakes. Redstuff or carbon fiber and why?
As the title suggests, I am in the market for a brake upgrade. I don't track, but you wouldn't know it by how I drive daily. I went through my last two sets of OEMs in little less than 10k mi. each and warped the...
I've just bought an A5 Sportback S-Line Auto 3.0TDi 204PS - 2014. Nav, rear parking camera etc.
I've upgraded from my Audi TT which was pretty impractical for me (good fun though!).
I'm starting with a few usual bits I do to all my cars, remap and rear window tints. However, where...
Posted this on AZ as well, wondering if anyone has any info:
So on the new facelift models, the readout/digits in the climate control screen are white on black, while the pre-facelift is red on red. Anybody know if this swap is a straight plug & play? Do they even sell the new climate control...
bought an A5 back in August with 145k (miles) on the clock. She's been slowly getting all the necessary work done to her that's been needed such as:
New Alt Belt / Pulleys
New Timing Belt
Paint retouches/Rust repair (slight bit on the arch)
Replaced front left caliper...
I know this would usually be a simple find! But for some reason I can’t find my power steering reservoir, all videos I’ve seen online indicate that it should be on the right hand side with a grey lid. Mine isn’t!? Maybe certain models have them in different places?
It’s a 2013 Quattro 2.0...
