I'm using yandex maps if I only riding and don't routing.
Thank you for your reply.
I also use other apps. But I want to take advantage of the rich information and aerial photography of google map.
In the past, the compass mark has appeared, and it's the situation I want. I don't know under what conditions it appeared. The compass mark disappears when I touch it and does not reappear. This has only happened twice so far.

I purchased recently this box :
Carlinkit CPC200-TBOX https://www.carlinkit.store/product...ox-wireless-android-auto-apple-carplay-ai-box
It looks like it's a clone of the Applepie box, since their support team sent me yesterday a beta firmware update that, after application, changed the name of the box to "Applepie".
The box has 2 main issues that I discovered so far:

1) when I configure a second user in the Android menu of the box and switch to it, I see a message on the lower right corner, saying "device not activated"

2) the resolution is low, some apps don't display properly, one example is Spotify. It looks cramped and you cannot access the app buttons.

I am in touch with support and will be doing more testing.

Seems there is a new redesigned UX999 with better cooling available.
Also the SIM and SD place has changed maybe for better inserting and removing it.

same here. Also in Splitscreen Mode.
I figured it out... Google Maps had "Ok Google" handsfree enabled by default.
Same as the Alexa app or the Amazon Music app, if the app has some kind of handsfree voice detection enabled, it drops the audio to the low quality mode in that app.

Disabling the handsfree voice detection feature in apps seems to be the only way to eliminate this problem for now.

Disabled, but no effort. as soon as i start navigation, the soundquality is awefull
I have a small problem, I have two streaming applications, RaiPlay and Mediaset play, which see the video but not the audio ... ..only these applications, or rather it starts about 30 seconds and then the audio disappears, you have solutions?

Hello everyone. I am hoping someone can help me.

I purchased this unit

CarlinKit Ai Box 4G Cellular,4+64G,8Core, Fit for Cars with OEM/Factory Wired CarPlay, 1 Adapter 2 System,Built-in Navigation,Support YouTube Netflix,etc.Wireless CarPlay&Android System https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09G9KPXH...abc_EC4RYQVV4MMV22BJA2J3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

from what I can tell from a post a bit above it is a applepie min clone.

Can anyone help me confirm which update file I should apply for my box? Or even better educate me on finding it myself in future? I think the qualcomm?


EDIT: Ok I found the support site and the update file it is on there main sales page near the bottom, before the related products section


and here is the link to the firmware file. 10/14/21

This is the box I have.
I am quite disappointed with it.
The UI is laggy, the customer support is via WhatsApp, but it is a hit and miss experience.
I have 2 Firmware updates for this box.
The last firmware update changes the box name to Applepie
