I noticed a change in the AAWireless (dev) app:
However, my phone reports ~30MB mobile data usage for AAWireless (dev) after a 1h drive today.
I recently switched from a Huawei P20 lite (Android 9) to a Samsung A53 (Android 12) and also could not download the syslog. With Android 12 the special WLAN configured and used by Android Auto seems to be "very special" since it is not listed in the saved WLANs and apparently does not allow a browser to connect to the AAWireless box and download the syslog.
Or just connect from a PC and download the logI recently switched from a Huawei P20 lite (Android 9) to a Samsung A53 (Android 12) and also could not download the syslog.

Somehow though, I managed to do it, involving the following
- turn off headunit to prevent Android Auto from taking over (just turning off Bluetooth on the phone did not work, since AA turned it on again)
- configure the WLAN for the AAWireless box manually (I still had the WLAN password from using the Huawei P20 lite) - you may need to contact support to get your WLAN password
- turn off mobile data to prevent the browser from trying to connect to the AAW box over mobile data
- connect to the AAWireless WLAN
- open http://10.42.1.1:8000/syslog in the browser and download the syslog
I intend to update my phone to either VIVO X FOLD or OPPO FIND N phone.But I see posts in xda forums of these phones and Android Auto saying Android Auto is not working in these phones either using USB Code or Wirelessly.So,can I get Android Auto working in these phones if I purchase Android Auto Wireless Dongle and without ROOTING THESE PHONES?
Anybody please advise.
Waiting with thanks....
If they don't work with Android Auto via USB cable or wirelessly then they will also not work with the AAWireless dongle.
Thank you martin.armstrng for your reply.But seems that you have not understood my question correctly. What I want to know is that whther Android Auto work in VIVO X FOLD or OPPO FIND N FOLD or Mi MIX FOLD phone either with USB code or wirelessly.If Android Auto does not work in these phones I have to purchase a Samsung Fold phone.So please be kind enough to clarify this.
Thanks for sharing this information!
@Snirpo This information could be put in the AAWireless FAQs, if it is not already there, to avoid users having to contact support to get the WIFI password.Thanks for sharing this information!
@Phantom1275, @kostiksimb and others wondering how to do this:
- get the SSID (that is the name of the WIFI) of your AAW device, something like AndroidAuto-AAWxxxxxxxx or AAWireless-xxxxxxxx with xxxxxxxx being your AAW device id
- enter the SSID in http://www.sha1-online.com to calculate the SHA1 and copy the result
- paste the result in
http://www.unit-conversion.info/texttools/uppercase/ to convert it to uppercase, the result is the WIFI password
We didn't do that on purpose. Because non-tech are going to set up to connection to the wifi hotspot of AAWireless manually. It will not help in any way. AA should set up the wifi connection via the bluetooth bootstrap. Manually connecting to the wifi of AAWireless will not help to get AA up and running.
We have this working, but not yet ready for production unfortunately.
Sadly we're sold out everywhere now. Black Friday went a bit better than we expected. Plus we made a big change in the production, sadly we have some production delays because of that. New stock will come soon.
Review with affiliate link. Smells funky.... Anyway... Smart move I guessTnx.
I've been using it for two months. I agree with you. Many things show issues after a longer period.
There was one minor update to the Carsifi app (not firmware for the adapter). After I set it, it simply works and I didn't have problems with it, except for some disconnections in the same places. I "found" two of them - circle cca 50-100 meters, where it simply disconnects while driving. But it reconnects back very quickly without any intervention.
Conclusion: I'm very happy with Carsifi as you can read in the review.
Please contact support at [email protected], they can help you. Could be defective, could be some car incompatibility. We replace, we refund if the same problem occurs. Unfortunately we can't make everyone happy with the inherent issues Android Auto / head units / phones have.I can’t see in my video that it is constantly connected and disconnected. This situation is repeated within a few minutes. I have changed several cables and nothing has worked. I believe that many people have my problem. With the same situation, they also can't find the problem
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.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.
