AAWireless Review – Use Android Auto wirelessly – Nation World News | Hot Mobile Press

More and more current vehicle models offer the option of using Android Auto via the vehicle’s touch display. Unfortunately, you still have to connect your smartphone to the car with a USB cable in order to be able to use it. Only very new cars offer this functionality wirelessly. But of course there are also users who want to continue using this function wirelessly.

There are currently many manufacturers who want to offer this function on smaller devices. But so far only one company has come up with a mature solution. With AA Wireless you get a small device to connect to the car. You can start using the functions of Android Auto wirelessly right away. The smartphone can now live in your pocket and connect to small adapters via Bluetooth and WLAN.

The scope of delivery of a radio set is quickly explained, as it consists of only two parts. The adapter itself on one side and a short USB cable on the other.

service

The classic operation of a WLAN adapter does not exist. Because apart from the reset button, there is no other button on the adapter that you can press. If you can talk about an operation, it can be done through the companion app.

Where service is the wrong word here. Because this app is only for settings or to update firmware. In other words, settings that you make once and that are not required for active use. After all, the adapter only provides a wireless connection between the vehicle and the smartphone. The Android Auto interface then works in the classic way on the vehicle’s touchscreen.

The following settings can be made with the companion app:

  • USB mode
  • retreat
  • WiFi option
  • On off
  • WiFi timeout
  • VAG crash fix
  • change dpi
  • tap limit
  • media sync
  • tts sync
  • automatic video focus
  • dongle mode
  • developer mode
  • Reset to factory settings
  • firmware upgrade
  • paired smartphone
  • help and support

Conclusion on the AA Wireless Android Auto Adapter

The AA wireless adapter is currently the best adapter for us to wirelessly connect your smartphone to the vehicle display. There are a few other manufacturers that offer similar hardware, but this adapter works best and is the most reliable. This adapter actually started as an Indiegogo campaign and has now attracted so many fans that it has now set up its shop.

At the time of this article, the delivery time is seven days due to high demand. We are particularly impressed by the small dimensions, the quick installation and the quick response as long as the adapter is not connected to the smartphone. Often it is enough to get into the vehicle and the adapter is already connected as soon as you start the engine. We can recommend this adapter to anyone who takes the trouble to connect their smartphone to the vehicle via cable every time. The smartphone can be in your pocket or on a shelf and still have the full range of functions of Android Auto.

price and availability

The AA Wireless Adapter is available at the time of this writing for €83.00 each. There is currently a separate website for selling adapters. However, customers in Germany are currently being redirected to the Indiegogo website. However, this is not a problem as you can easily order the adapter here as well. Simply create a free account on Indiegogo and order the adapter.

When we ordered the adapter, it was delivered within a week. Since the developer of this adapter is based in the Netherlands, the package is not far from Germany.

If the shop is not available in Germany, you currently have to go through the Indiegogo website. The order itself is as fast as you know it from the usual online shops. If the adapter finds its way to Amazon or other shops, we will definitely add articles at this point.
