UPDATE --- Figured it out (APK is attached on the 2nd post). This works on Eonon HU's that have Carplay built in to them. Other HU might have a different package name but give it a shot.

Hi,

My CarPlay app (called Phone Link) won't show up in the list of apps for any launchers (Agama car launcher). I've installed some shortcut apks which creates a shortcut app to the actual app (for apps like Radio, Bluetooth, etc) -https://altercars.ru/instructions/agama/For_Launchers.zip

Is there a shortcut app for the CarPlay app? Has anyone figured this out yet?

Rishi

Last time I checked the problem was on the Apple side of the fence. Apple does not officially support connection the android units and does not allow apps to change internal phone settings.... just a few of my many gripes against the evil apple empire.... besides them wanting to control your life, your future, your purchases.... etc. Anyway... enough of that

The best way to connect apple is to go AROUND apple with the Chinese/android answer... the carplay dongle and software

I figured this out myself. Created a new app in Android Studio that launches the required Activity "com.autochips.carplayapp.LoadingActivity". I've attched the APK if anyone is interested (works on my Eonon Android 10 HU). If your HU has a different package name than ^^ than this won't work and will need to be changed accordingly. I'll be posting the code on Github so anyone can create these shortcuts.

Thank you!! It worked, I was looking for it.
I don't know if it is possible to have direct access to SIRI without having a telephone cable connected?
