REVIEW: Wireless Android Auto Adapter – Soo convenient! No more USB cable disconnects!!!

I got a Wireless Android Auto Adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3VaMlX7 ). I got one of the latest ones that had a replaceable USB cable ( https://amzn.to/3F6M2qP ) for my 2018 Honda Clarity and Civic. It works very well and simple to install. I have been using it for the past 2 weeks and it connects when i get in the car. This is my review.

The issue with my Honda Clarity and Android Auto was the cable connection has been dropping and disconnecting every time the cable gets loose. The USB jack on the car was getting loose every time my phone moved. I have been replacing USB C cables and it still gets loose. So I decided to get a Wireless Android Auto Adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3VaMlX7 ). I got one of the latest ones that had a replaceable USB cable ( https://amzn.to/3F6M2qP ) so in case i needed to use a longer cable to hide the unit i can.

Setup: Most of these Wireless Android Auto Adaptor ( https://amzn.to/3VaMlX7 ) need to have the firmware updated. Read the instructions and update before installing it on your car. For this one, the device name was ‘smartBox-xxxx’ I used Wifi Direct to connect and update the latest firmware. It took about 5 minutes to download and update the firmware.

When activating Android Auto at the first time you need to plug the adapter into vehicle USB port, turn on Bluetooth and WiFi, pair to Bluetooth. The initial pairing took about 1 minute. The adapter will then connect with the Wifi and Bluetooth every time time after the car and the adapter powers up. It automatically connect with Bluetooth within in about 10 – 15 seconds.

Overall this was a very useful and it solved the loose Android Auto USB cable jack problem. It did take about 20 – 30 minute install due to the hard to read instructions. I now love wireless android auto.

So 2017 Chevy Volt aftermarket car window tint film was failing and started to bubble. I was not able see to through it and needed to re tint it. The tint shop I went to closed down. Tint shops wanted about $150 to remove it and $100 for a new tint. So i decided to DIY this and save money.

So the steam process of removing tint is simple and will take about 1 hour or so for me to do. I done this before with my other cars year ago. Typically car tint lasts about 5 years before it starts bubbling in the rear window.

I used my old Conair Extreme Turbo Hand Held Steamer ( https://amzn.to/2TWJO8L ) as a steamer to melt the adhesive and safety remove the tint from my rear window with defroster lines. I bought Conair Turbo Extreme 2 IN 1 Steamer and Iron ( https://amzn.to/3GotO1X ) , however I didnt want to dirty it with adhesive for my clothing. Secondly, the Conair Extreme Turbo Hand Held Steamer ( https://amzn.to/2TWJO8L ) was easier to handle, was more focused steam area for better control, and steamed very fast. I also used some microfiber towels ( https://amzn.to/3RBGaKa ) to absorb the adhesive on the final cleaning.

Basic Steps:
Work one corner of the tint use the steam to heat the adhesive. I kept the steam 1-2 cm from the window.
In a few seconds the tint will release from the glue.
I pulled one corner and continued to heat and slowly pull the tint away from the glass and defroster lines. You want the steam to release the adhesive, dont force it.
After all the tint is removed. There may be adhesive on the glass.
Wrap the microfiber towel over the hand held steamer and use it to melt and absorb the adhesive.
I had to run to passes to get all the adhesive off.

Overall it took about 1 hour to remove the tint and adhesive. Next time it would probably take 30 mins as I was being very careful.

EXPERIMENT: Using a IMPACT WRENCH on my New SCISSOR JACK!

I got a Scissor Jack (2 Ton) with Ratchet Tool ( https://amzn.to/3kMz2vI ) so I can have a spare jack in my car. It also helps me when rotating my tires at home. I use a Bravolu 21V MAX Brushless Power Impact Wrench ( https://amzn.to/35zIzlE ) as I do my own tire rotations and automotive maintenance. I wanted to experiment to see if i can save even more time by just using the Impact Wrench on my scissor jack to raise the car faster without using the 17 mm tool. I will experiment, so you dont have to. Scissor Jack adapter tool ( https://amzn.to/3D5dmW5 ) for my impact wrench.
