thank you so much for the post, CraigK. This is awesome info. In terms of the battery drain I am hoping it is the same as with the official wireless carplay function. I guess I am going to order one from Amazon and give it a shot as well. On my wireless carplay vehicle it is draining my battery as well but not quite as bad as 10% for 30 minutes. Siri is a hit or miss for me on my 718 anyways (engine noise?). If it can do 80% of what a true wireless carplay setup does I will be happy.
