Anyone have a suggestion for a great adapter for wireless Android Auto?
Really hoping they release the newer firmware this month. It has the option to change the 5GHz channel the wifi uses which should help with interference issues you can run into with wireless AA.After using both the Motorola and the AAWireless, I can say the AAWireless is the better option for the EV6 because it has the companion app where you can set it to only start up Android Auto when the phone connects to the Kia Bluetooth.
Both work fine but the Motorola will cause a persistent notification on your phone says "looking for Android Auto" if you're close enough to the car when the car is off due to the USB port always being powered. By default, the AAWireless does this too, but if you download the companion app and enable the appropriate setting in it, it will keep this from happening.
Other than that minor nuisance, both seem to work fine.
I've run into interference running around. A number of devices are in the 5GHz range and can affect it just due to those devices poor control and bleeding into other frequencies, you can even have those toll readers on the highway affect it. It's a known issue. Forcing 2.4GHz is one work around that appears to help, but I have the beta version of the app and see they have more things planned, one being the channel choise on 5GHz.I'm not running into any interference issues personally, and I'd expect 2.4GHz to be a much busier frequency TBH, more devices on 2.4GHz and it reaches further.
FWIW, my AAWireless app shows the option to force 2.4GHz mode, but again I personally don't see any need to.
AAWireless has a setting in the app that you can set to have it wait for your phone to connect via BT to the car before looking for the AAWireless device via BT and starting AA.I have the AA wireless that I used in my Lincoln navigator. Whenever I am within 20 feet of the vehicle my phone keeps beeping making and connections to the vehicle. I presume the aa wireless is always powered in that usb port. My phone connects to the AA wireless whether I am driving or not unless we choose another phone.
On the other hand, the MA1 in my EV 6 does not do this. And if another person is driving and their phone is connected to the EV6 with their profile, my phone does not connect to the MA1.
I think the MA1 is easier to use because no added app to install on a phone. All you have to do is pair it with any phone so if multiple people and phones want to use it, this is a better way to go than having to install the AA wireless on each and every phone using the device.
However, they both work very well.
You can only plug it into the usb a port in front part of cener console facing driver, the port on left thats the bigger one. Make sure aawireless app on your phone, enable the android auto on your kia ev6. Enable your phone and pair your phone blue tooth to aawireless device. Make aure android like 11 or 12 on phone.Could anybody post a photo of where you plug in Android Auto and ideally a photo of anybody with AAWireless set up?
Thanks - I've not got my EV6 yet but I do have AAWireless and am in fact a software beta tester for them which is helpful. With my Audi A4 I've created quite a nice hidden setup so was wondering if it was close with the EV6. Now having Wirleless Android Auto is one of the big downsides to be honest.(prior posts in this thread discuss some of the available choices.)
