Upgrade Wireless CarPlay for My 718

I was a little bit annoyed that I had to have my phone plugged in to get my CarPlay to work in my car. I got a refer from my friend with a smart dongle. I purchased carlinkit 4.0 that converts the CarPlay connection into wireless CarPlay and Android Auto.
Ever since getting this I’ve had absolutely few problems, sound quality is good and haven't seen any audio/video lag. It has truly improved my entire car audio experience. Works great, and is a decent price for what it brings, less than $85.
Once you set up the dongle, get into your car and turn on the car, and without connecting your phone to the car by cable, you’ll have CarPlay pop up. Plug and play, takes about 30 seconds to boot up and is actually pretty quick. Exactly like wired carplay! I can't believe how easy it was to set up!
I am so excited and would like to sharing this. I LOVE HAVING WIRELESS CARPLAY! I will keep updating here!

It works well with my car so far. I am happy with my purchase. Highly recommended!
Glad it works for you. What year is your 718?
I've heard that connection time can vary: sometimes quick, other times slow.
I have a 2022 GTS. Mine (Carlinkit 4.0) automatically detects the iPhone in my pocket and takes a total of 10-20 seconds before everything is activated. It seems to occasionally take longer to load all of my stations from Pandora, but that seems to be a glitch with Pandora/CarPlay that also occurs in my BMW with wireless CarPlay. Maps start working almost immediately.
Thanks. It looks good. I've always liked carplay. Wireless carplay is undoubtedly convenient. I think I'll try this product.
