Hey Guys,

I have a Carlinkie white USB that i brought back in 2017. I never set it up but i'm having issues with my iPhone XS Max. It won't connect. I can use my old iphone 7 plus no issues, my wife's XS no issues. I've tried powered hubs. The Y spliter to put more power in. Used different firmware. Any idea's?

I currently have the Carlinkit white box with autokit.apk. I'm having the occasional issue where the Android Auto screen is coming up with the wrong screen ratio and the floating white dot is in the upper left corner. I have to kill it in task manager and re-open it to resolve the issue. Anyone see this and/or know how to contact the developer to report this bug?

On a side note, when I run Android Auto in 720p/1080p mode it letterboxes the sides of the screen where 480p does not, it's just weird.

Anyone got any ideas or is this thing just for the trash? Is it possible to update/restore the firmware of the device if its not being recognised in zBox or shown as counterfeit in the others? One thought I had was I've been sent a return item which has had a previous bad attempt to update the firmware...

Thanks

My device has the same model number as yours and also comes up with "Counterfeit Device" when used with AutoKit & AutoPlayBox as it's not intended to work with those APKs. However it does work with zBox. If I were you I'd focus on getting zBox to work - maybe it's not getting enough power from your HU?

Tablet screen "squashing"
Have done a bit more testing and am re-posting this to fix some errors & omissions in my original post. These results are all from testing zBox on a Nexus 7 2013:
  • 4.5.3: CarPlay appears rendered as a square at the centre of the tablet screen, so if it's a 1024x720 screen it will be rendered as a 720x720 square (not squashed in this case). The aspect ratio is OK but much of the screen is wasted.
  • 4.5.7, 4.5.9 & 4.5.13: CarPlay fills the screen but it's in low resolution with only 4 icons across the screen and all the icons are "squashed"
  • 4.5.17: I just get a black screen with this version. No CarPlay at all.
AutoPlayBox + AutoKit APKs both report as "Counterfeit device". My device is a white "Model:CPC200-Auto-CA", firmware version 4.20.

Thanks for confirming that, I'll try changing cables and seeing if I can get more power to the device.

I pulled the triger on a carlinke wireless carplay adapter today. Hopefully should resolve my charging issues. Will post a review once the slow boat from china arrives here in Australia.
