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.

REVIEW: Car Interior LED Lights USB Powered – 2 YEARS LATER…

About two years ago I about this Viden Car LED lights with remote and powered by USB ( https://amzn.to/3uaLFVj ). I wanted to add more ambient lights to my foot wells, glove box, and storage areas in my car at night.

The tried 12 volt LED car lights which are brighter but run very warm. The main reason to buy USB 5volt over 12v was that it was simple easier to get power from the car USB port or 12 volt usb chargers. The USB version also runs cooler than the 12 volt versions.

The USB ambient lights has plenty of light. I mounted them in in my front foot well, glove box, and under my dash storage for more light to find stuff at night. The install was simple and every thing still works after 2 years.

The only problem was the adhesive. The Viden Car LED lights (https://amzn.to/3uaLFVj ) glue released after 2 months in the summer heat. I replaced them with 3M Automotive Super Strength Molding Tape ( https://amzn.to/3o9hNYs ) and it has stayed on for over 18 months.

The 3M Molding Tape ( https://amzn.to/3o9hNYs ) is an self sticking high heat resistant adhesive foam tape for automotive applications but I always keep a roll handy for other projects that rely need good adhesion. It can be used for car interior trim panels, body side molding, emblems and mounting other light duty items.

Overall, I am very happy with the Viden USB powered Car LED lights with ( https://amzn.to/3uaLFVj ) as they turn on when the car powers up and it has a memory of the last color scheme used. So its set and forget.

Car Door Wireless Projector Courtesy Lights – REVIEW & MOD

My 2018 Honda Clarity and other car now lack door courtesy lights so I wanted to try out and test the generic car door projector lights ( https://amzn.to/2T5Lkl7 ) that are found on Amazon for $10- $14 for two. I will unbox, install, review and take apart the projector lights for entertainment. I plan to modify the light in the future videos and see show durable these lights are. The main objective for these lights was for courtesy lights to see if I dropped something on the ground when exiting or entering the car.

In my previous video I added ambient lighting to my Honda and other cars . I used a simple car RGB flexible LED light kit ( https://amzn.to/3nNsQDV ). These projector door lights are battery powered by AAA batteries and are adhered to the door panel triggered by a magnetic switch. Installing these lights took about 20 minutes to position. The curvature of the door panels only allowed for 60 percent of the foot print to be mounted. Being so light weight it worked, but only time will tell. We will do a follow-up video if they fall or fail.
