First thing to try is passthrough mode. If the same thing happens in passthrough mode it can either be a device defect or HU issue.

Hi Snirpo,

thanks for the quick answer. I needed some time for the test, but finally made another extensive test. First with the settings I had (+passtrough mode), later with different modifications.
The reason it took long was the first try. I changed to passtrough and I believe that time I had no (or maybe 1) disconnetcion.
Later there was one more case with only 1 disconnection.
But the complete picture has not changed.
I usually drive 2x 40-50 min per day on the motorway. There were in avg 5-8 disconnections.
If I go to the city, the frequency of disconnections are even getting higher.

How could I test weather it is the HU or the dongle?
In the weekend I might have the chance to test it in another car for 2-3 hours.

If the same happens in another car, I'd say send an a support request at [email protected] for a replacement.

Yeah it fixes the connectivity issue. But it takes a whole lot longer to connect to AAW - at least in my case.
I think the problem is the car turning on the USB port when you walk to the car. Device (AA) will start up too soon and will time out because there's no reaction from the HU yet.
In normal (non-passthrough) mode we keep the wireless side alive by pinging to the phone. So AA will not time out.
This has changed in 2.1.0, we don't ping anymore in both normal and passthrough mode. If this has negative side effects, please tell me :)

However... dongle mode should also fix this, because it makes AA wait for the handsfree connection of the car to the phone.

Oh me too if i can AAWireless-SUsVhcKV

Also I have one behaviour now, for exemple I like switch between poweramp, deezer and also smart audiobook, and I use waze as gps
But now for exemple if I use deezer, it go at the bottom bar with the control button, and if I switch on android auto to poweramp, deezer still stay at the bottom bar, so if I want to switch song with the "next" button on my car wheel , it stop poweramp and next the song on deezer

I hope I was clear, so now I disabled deezer and I only use poweramp but I can't understand why it do this

Thanks in advance for the help, or informations

I've noticed that connection takes far longer in 2.0.2 than 2.0.1. It will take up to 50 seconds whereas previously would take about 10.

AAWireless would double blink blue, then change to red. This would happen a few times then it would connect.

Will the 2.1.0 beta fix this, or is it possible to rollback to 2.0.1.

    ? for you... On the AA Wireless Adapter for Android shipping from Amazon, what firmware # is loaded on them.. I have been told by fellow Wrangler JL owner to roll back to / to only use firmware version 1.8 . When I receive my dongle from Amazon on 8/30/22 I want to be sure it has only 1.8 firmware. Thanks for you reply.. I am Rhinebeck01 in this thread talking MA1. IF I have success with AA Wireless dongle I will be posting about it.. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/fo...1-wireless-android-adapter.86856/post-2054720
    It will arrive with 1.12.0, which is equal to 1.8 (gen1 vs gen2). No dongles are shipping from factory with 2.x yet.
    UConnect is still blacklisted in the backend from 2.x. However we will soon remove this blacklist, because firmware 2.1.0 should work fine with UConnect.

    Hi all,

    I wannt to update my AAWireless firmware version 1.0.0.
    I have connect the the device an the AAWireless android app in version 2.21.0 state, that there is a new version 2.0.2 available.
    I click on "Start download" and the download ends with 100%.
    But after that, instead of showing a button "start update", again the button "Start download" is shown.
    Also downloading again, does not change anything.

    It is the same using a Samsung Galaxy S9 or a Pixel 6a as a mobile phone and the same if I have connected the device in the care or with a laptop.

    Any ideas, why this happends and why the update isn't installed?

    I am a german user and are using the german localisation of the app.

    Thank you very much!
    Christoph
    Oh jeez, that's a golden oldie :) Not sure why this happens, I'll check if I can reproduce. Might be a bug.

    I used to get the same thing. I believe it is an issue with AA/Google rather than AAW. In any event, I have had to give up on AAW as I can't connect to it/won't update, just sits there with a constant light-blue light. It is a (very expensive) paper weight on my desk now. It is just "too Beta" for my requirements.

    I have now got a Carlink 2022 Android box which works flawlessly for me.
    MG ZS EV 2022
    Galaxy S21 Ultra (not rooted)
    I know I should ignore these posts, but these are the comments why I'm honestly considering completely dropping out any forum / reddit / social media. What's the point? We have support, we have warranty, we have a refund policy. It might be "beta" for you, but we shipped over 100k devices and believe me or not, for most, it just works. It's the same thing for all of these dongles. They will not work perfectly for all, there are just too many variables.

    Very close to release of 2.1.0 now. We fixed the UConnect issue, except for some cases where you still have to re-plug the device, but this is also the case on the MA1.

    in the development version of the AAWireless app the start/stop settings have experimental settings which are greyed-out and cannot be selected. If I had the firmware 2.1.0 would they then be active?
    In dev app yes. Production app no. We'll start rollout of 2.1.0 this evening.

    I remember a post from a guy with the classic “I've been in the industry for years” claim. He said that because he had a weekly internal briefing at his workplace, you should be doing the same for us here. If you give an inch, they want a mile.

    Then you have all the narcissistic Karens with zero patience that say whatever they think will get your attention so they can jump the queue. Even when you (quite rightly) post that firmware will now be staggered with no release announcement, you have an immediate request from someone with “faulty” units asking you to announce when the release will start!?!

    It must be incredibly frustrating and every rational user will understand. Even if you decide against stepping back permanently, please take a lengthy break.

    This thread is dedicated for AAWireless users.

    AAWireless is a device which allows you to transform your existing wired Android Auto compatible unit into a Wireless Android Auto unit.

    General chat, experience sharing and community support should be expected as well as support from the developers of the product: @Snirpo and myself.

    I just want to leave a big THANK YOU for the developers! You invented a great product and do a great job here.

    Anyone who has ordered the product knows that it is a crowdfunding project, which may also have teething problems. I find it cheeky to get upset about problems, even though they are dealt with promptly here. What more should the distributors do than react to the problems here and offer solutions?

    I also have problems with the device, but I was helped quickly. Even if it takes a few days.

    Dear team: Keep up the good work!

    We fixed the "VW Headunit crashing on skipping tracks" issue now completely. Confirmed it's a bug on the HU side, latency makes it worse. We will probably push a new firmware by the end of this week.
    I will also submit a bug report to Google, cause they can fix/workaround this issue as well for cabled users.
