    I use Android and my wife uses Apple Car Play. We keep switching the USB cord and after a while it's going to wear out. It's also hard to see and get the damned plug into the socket. So I want to add a USB Y cable or multiplier. I've purchased two on Amazon and neither work in the data port...

    I have the Apple Lightning to HDMI adapter for using my devices while at a hotel to view downloaded video. I typically use a GPS when traveling, but have tried Google Maps on my phone.

  14. Android Auto USB port won't charge phone.

    So the good news: The 17 updated screen and infotainment features are great! Not only does Android Auto connect the Google apps, Pandora, calls, texting, etc relatively seamlessly on the center screen, it has "cliff note" versions of the information that displays when appropriate on the driver...

    Here is the test subject with measurements. Planning to port and polish since there is not a lot of aftermarket support. So I made my own.
