Best CarPlay ever
very easy to order and good communication very happy with the products and received in quick time
Haven’t had the device long but so far so good it was easy to install easy to connect to both iPhone and android phones and survives negative degree weather so far -5c the cigarette ports on my van seem to stay live all the time so I will be tying the power cord into key power at some point
This review isn't just for the camera extension cable, it's for the Carpuride 901 Pro I recently installed in my vehicle. Overall, I'm very pleased with this product. My car is an older 2008 Acura model and the electronics in the car are rather dated, so I installed this screen in front of the original factory navigation screen (which is too outdated to use anyway) as an easy way to get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay technology. But what really makes this product a great fit is the BACKUP CAMERA feature! Having the backup camera on this device does 2 things; a) it allows me to place the Carpuride in front of the old factory nav screen (which also has a backup camera feature) and b) allows me to install and use a better, more modern backup camera with the Carpuride unit.
I primarily want to use the wireless Android Auto feature, but sometimes it does not reliably connect to the Carpuride every time I start the car. It tries to connect but fails. However, this may be a Google problem with Android Auto programming and not a problem with the Carpuride - I have no way of knowing. But it does provide a WIRED AA feature I can use when it fails to wirelessly connect, so that's at least a good feature.
The screen is bright, responsive, and large. I created a custom Acura logo and Carpuride provided me with a free upload file to install the new boot graphic, which is a very nice service, and looks great.
The only other thing I would ask for would be a WIRED power connection module that will power the unit so the power wire can be hidden inside the dash wiring that would look better than the cigarette lighter plug power connection.
Overall, this is a very nice unit.
