Default CarPlay/Android Auto Info - 03-17-2019, 10:35 AM

Since I've received quite a few requests on this.

Neither Apple nor Google allow the displaying of manufacturer specific vehicle parameters over CarPlay/Android Auto at this time UNLESS you are an OEM. It's something I've looked into a fair bit, but there just isn't any official support from Apple or Google at this time. I'll let you all know whenever they change their policies.

I have JB4 app running on my Avin clone head unit using OTG USB. Look at the apps available on car play, they all limit user interaction and distraction. Example Texts can’t be seen, only read to you. JB4 dashboard is a massive distraction. For now (probably forever) i switch between native app JB4 and CarPlay dongle.

Please provide a link to the exact head unit. A lot of these head units use sub-par BT radios and simply don't work with Bluetooth Low Energy devices.

It's no more of a distraction than your car's built-in dash.
