PSA - Wireless CarPlay Adapter - 2020 4Runner

I recently installed this wireless CarPlay adapter in my 2020 ORP.

It works exactly as advertised. No more need to plug the phone in every time to get CarPlay functionality. Great for short trips. For longer journeys I will likely revert back to plugging the phone in....unless I can find a good wireless charging solution.

Thanks for the heads up. I don't use CarPlay enough to spend the money on this, but I'm sure some people will definitely want it.

good to know. I was considering to install an aftermarket receiver just for this reason... I had an Alpine with wireless CarPlay in my last vehicle and don't think I can live without it now

Interesting and sweet product.

Nice

Still working great for me. One time it didnít connect but I think it was my fault, I unlocked the phone and made a call during the connection process which the CarPlay Adapter didnít like apparently. Just unplugged the USB and plugged it back in, and it connected properly right away.

Very happy thus far.

Amazon.com: Carlinkit Wireless CarPlay Adapter for Volvo XC90 XC60 XC40 V90 2016-2020, Peugeot Chevrolet Honda Civic CR-V 2016-2019, Mazda CX-5 Artz 2017-2020, Hyundai, Convert Factory Wired CarPlay to Wireless

Does it matter which version? The Volvo one shows up in your link.

I was curious about which version as well. The white version is listed for those vehicles with wired-in Apple CarPlay already, but your Amazon link goes to the black version for the Volvo. I have a 2020 ORP as well.

Thatís the version they said worked for Toyota. It appears to work with any car that has a Panasonic head unit, as ours does.

I have a competing brand product and it works great. Wired CarPlay stinks. Wireless is awesome. My old Kenwood radio in my FJ was wireless. Hard to convert to the wired version. I like to have my phone free.

I'm an Android guy, but this Ram-Mount wireless charging cradle works great holding the phone and keeping it charged while still be easy to put in and out. With wireless AA (or CarPlay) it makes a good pairing!

Just installed mine today based on your recommendation. Works perfectly out of the box for me! Thank you for posting this... Note I have a 2020 model and do not have any long term review of this. But so far so good! Virtually no menu lag
