    Loving it so much now considering turning phone Bluetooth off and letting AA handle calls and messages. Just a shame AA won't work on dash screen or steering wheel buttons.

    Confuzzled.

    You are thinking of having an iPhone just left plugged into the car so it will connect to CP via USB cable. Then when you get into car it's would connect to your Android's phones hotspot.

    Well I'd assume this will work. On Android AA won't connect if phone is locked, so iPhone will probably need to be always on state, not locked.
    It would also need to be permanently scanning for a WiFi connection with auto connection to your Android.

    This would mean you Android would have to be in hotspot mode. So you would need an app like Tasker, so when you got into car, Android auto connects to car Bluetooth which would trigger Tasker to switch hotspot on, this allowing your iPhone to connect.

    Don't know how iPhone works so not 100% with this.

    Sorry for smiley after iPhone , this Android phone keeps adding them whenever I type iPhone

    You can set CarPlay so it launches even if the iPhone is locked, thats how i have it set up. Its just an on\off toggle in the CarPlay settings.

    I tried also with screen not locking wit AA, not Iphone.

    Strange thing is also that I see with everyone has 2 usb ports, I only have 1

    And do you need to connect with wifi?

    Because it still doesn't exits in Belgium with exception of the versioen at mirrorapk of is this only for internet, if not, please explain how we should connect, because I tried to find an option in te car to find wifi internet but also through the phone?

    I only have 1 USB port. I have a USB 3 4 way hub attached to that and AA and USB stick plugged into that.

    ok I was thinking that maybe was the problem, that you could only connect at a specific port and I maybe was missing that
