Enjoy!


Hi arkzrlo.
Thanks for the link. Based on your other thread from piloteers forum you needed to repack the apk to be installed on 2016 Pilot HU (mine was already rooted and I was able to install other apks fine without any issues). I tried it but it did not work; the install button was grayed out. Can you please share the one you repacked? Thanks

EDIT: Thanks arkzrlo for replying in piloteers forum and provided the repacked apk.

Just got the black one. It has worked flawlessly without any intervention at all. It even supports wheel controls out of the. Is.

Now, I have seen people updating the usb and even the zbox app. What are the changes? Is there anything worthwhile if mine seems to be working flawlessly?

I just searched this thread and didn't see anyone answer it yet.

I'm curious as well since I have a Nexus 7 in my car. I'd love to add carplay via the dongle! Does anyone know if this is doable?

Thanks!

How the F**k do you pull up the settings on the app? I seen someone posted a screenshot of their settings, I have no idea how to access them. I have installed the latest APK, but haven't installed the latest firmware.

Start the app without a phone connected and there’s a little gear icon top left, you can then check for updates, update app and firmware simply by tapping upgrade if there’s one


Does anybody else have issues with making answering phone calls if the phone is connected to the headunit with Bluetooth and the app is open? I get no sound from the unit at all. Only way it works is to use Bluetooth and not open the CarPlay app or to disable Bluetooth on phone and use CarPlay app. So annoying! Is there a work around for this that doesn’t require disabling Bluetooth connection to the head-unit?

I highly doubt we will find a good workaround for this one as I think the best way is to have the Bluetooth disabled when you connect the phone via a cable to the dongle.
All this will loose importance when we find a way to have a Wireless CarPlay connection.
I really hope some Chinese guys are working on a project like that.
