Getting a brand new car with Apple’s CarPlay built in is becoming easier as time rolls on, and even some of the most affordable cars on the market are starting to offer CarPlay either as standard, or as an option.
That’s great, but if you don’t want to buy a new car just to get CarPlay, you might be out of luck. There’s the option of buying a new head unit, but who wants to do that? Nobody, so check this USB dongle out instead.
This dongle takes a standard Android-powered in-car entertainment system and gives it CarPlay capabilities. You need to have a head unit that’s running Android, so make sure that’s the case before buying, but if it does you’re good to go.
Simply install an app from the included USB stick and then connect the dongle to a USB port in your car. Next, plug your iPhone (or Android in case of CarPlay+Android Auto variant which is also available) into the dongle and you should be up and running.
