I bought the AAWireless adaptor in April 2022 for my 2017 VW, and have been using it ever since.
It has worked perfectly from the word go, and I can't recommend it highly enough. It simply plugs into the USB port in your car where you normally plug in the wire for your phone, and then you setup the app on your phone (one time only) and then your phone connects automatically to your car's Android Auto facility without you having to do anything. On my car its incredibly quick, because I think as soon as I unlock the doors, the device powers up (the USB port must go live at unlock time). By the time I've got in, put on my seatbelt and driven off, its usually available on the car's screen. In my car, the adaptor hides in the wee cubby with the door shut to cover it and you can forget its even in there doing its thing.
The one small snag is that you then need another place to plug in your phone for power, as on a longer journey your power will drain. But for me that was actually a plus point, as the USB port in my car only charged my phone slowly, but now I have a 12v adaptor for it that charges it quicker. Recommended.
I have been into the latest gadgetry and technology since a young age and enjoy trying out the latest tech.
