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.

[HVC16] Scratches on my Honda Clarity Touch Screen! Adding a Screen Protector!

I discovered I have scratches on my Honda Clarity Infotainment center touch screen. So I have added a custom cut RUIYA screen protector ( https://amzn.to/3a9y6uE ) which i bought from Amazon for 2 for $9 or so. This is a hard plastic sheet and not tempered glass.

I never had scratches on my touch screens before with my Chevy Volt or any of my other cars, so this was surprising to find scratches. I use a high quality car Costco microfiber cloth ( https://amzn.to/3a8oUXy ) to clean my fingerprints from the screen, however dont think it was the cloth. I normally wipe horizontally. The scratches were vertical and only on spots were my fingers slid to change the audio navigation. I suspect it caused by my finger nails.

The RUIYA screen protector ( https://amzn.to/3a9y6uE ) kit came with 2 screens, two install kits, and a hard plastic card for pushing bubbles. I followed the instructions cleaned with the alcohol wipes, then the mini microfiber, then picked off the any lint or dust with the two anti dust stickers. To apply the screen the instructions on the release tabs are wrong. Start with tab “1” to release the adhesive side. Apply to screen, aligning the screen protector to the top of your center screen. Then slowly place the screen protector on from on corner to the diagonally to the other corner to avoid any bubbles. I had 2 faint bubbles on my screen after applying it. I used the plastic card and my fingers to push it off the edge but it stated. The two faint bubble disappeared after 24 hours or so.

Overall I am satisfied with the screen protector, and i will do a long term review in 6 to 12 months.
