3 easy ways to choose CarPlay android box in 2024 -Compatibility

When many people buy an carplay media box, they want to confirm whether their vehicle is compatible firstly.  

The merchants will reply that as long as the original car supports wired carplay, they can use the carplay Android box. Why they all reply that ?

This Android system supports streaming media applications directly on the car screen, enabling entertainment functions such as watching movies and playing simple games in the car.

In addition, it can also realize wireless CarPlay and Android auto connection, matching different drivers' habits of using different in-vehicle systems.

So, how to confirm whether your car supports wired carplay?

First, you can ask the dealer directly to confirm whether the vehicle supports wired carplay.
