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.

HOW TO: Change Honda Transmission Oil / Fluid for 2018 -2021 HONDA CLARITY

Honda Clarity Vlog 15 – A quick video on how to change the TRANSMISSION oil on my 2018 – 2021 Honda Clarity. This is part of the Service A0123 videos I made for my Road Tripping with Clare. It takes about 15 minutes to do this procedure with tools. I change my Honda Clarity when the Maintenance Minder notifies me or about every 50,000 miles on average. I saved me time and money (about $100+ ) from going to a dealership to do the transmission oil change.

REVIEW: Purolator Oil Filter

For my Honda, I usually change out my oil and oil filter every 7,500 miles using synthetic oil. For my oil filter, I have used Purolator oil filters L14610 ( https://amzn.to/3AImnzw ) without any issues on my Honda Civic hybrid, Honda Clarity hybrid every 7,500 miles and Honda Accord every 4,000 miles.

Quick tips of for a leak free oil filter. Clean all the old gasket material off the base of the engine oil filter mount area. Add new oil to the the new filter and wet the gasket with new oil. Screw the spin on filter by hand until tight, then use an oil filter wrench ( https://amzn.to/3lFF82e ) to add 3/4 turn for a tight seal.
