Has anyone had good experiences with these guys, particularly for NBT ID6? Wireless Android auto and all the good stuff?

I'm having a hard time trusting the AliExpress sources. Seems people are getting old models and stuff. Doesn't hurt that these guys are inexpensive.

New UI being tested? I wonder what constitutes compatibility, ie how could this be activated for our MMIs when released?

The projection of the AA UI is mostly handled by the phone and not the HU (or mmi in our case). So I don't expect there will be an issue getting the new UI.

That UI is for the smaller screen, which the already have full screen Android auto. Will probably make it more desirable but it probably won't change too much.

We really could use a toggle for full screen maps for wide-screen, whether we get it, time will tell...Split screen should be used, only for phone calls and messages then revert back to full screen maps.

Agreed. Don't understand why split screen is active, even if only maps is used. One of life's great mysteries.

Exclamation

I just received and installed my Andream unit (I went with the touch screen option vs the box, and I'm glad I did because i had practically ZERO room behind my HU or slack with the cabling, my goodness...) but I've run into a snag - first day and a half, GREAT. Wireless CarPlay with my iPhone XS worked mostly seamlessly (USB worked just fine too but isn't my ideal setup so Wireless FTW) However it didn't connect after I ran to grab lunch, and since then I cannot get my phone to even see the BT or WiFi connection.

Fire up car -> screen loads > tap Wireless CarPlay > screen says no bluetooth devices connected and displays both the BT name and the WiFi credentials -> check for available BT connections on my phone -> nada enchilada. BT/WiFi connections on the screen don't appear on my phone. I 'forgot' the existing connections from my phone and removed the car from General > CarPlay but still no dice. CarPlay works over USB if I connect the phone and do it that way, but it won't let me register or connect for Wireless CarPlay. Any ideas??
