This way Carbotics is the first unit in the row and should start. If this doesn't work you have to ask your Lexus dealer because there is something not compliant to the Apple Carplay protocol (have no Lexus, can't test).

Par contre quand je le connecte à ma voiture, sans aucun autre téléphone connecté ou enregistré, l’appareil est bien détecté mais il est aussitôt marqué comme déconnecté et rien n’apparaît à l’écran. Et j’ai aussi testé la prise de ma voiture avec un iPhone et elle marche bien.

Translation added: @ap756 I've plugged the device into another car before and it works great. On the other hand, when I connect it to my car, without any other phone connected or registered, the device is detected but it is immediately marked as disconnected and nothing appears on the screen. And I also tested my car socket with an iPhone and it works fine.

RE: Carbotics not connecting to Lexus NX450H https://carbotics.net/community/troubleshooting/carbotics-not-connecting-to-lexus-nx450h/#post-397 Fri, 25 Nov 2022 17:48:30 +0000 @peb, welcome on board. For a start: Carbotics needs a wired Apple Carplay connection and wants to be the boss of your entertainment. If you have already an iPhone or an Android mobile connected to your head unit it is not possible to connect another (a Carbotics) unit. Please disconnect any Bluetooth or wired connection to your head unit. Now connect Carbotics to your USB port and it should boot successful. Please connect your phone through Carbotics and not direct to the head unit!

If it still does not boot 1. try to connect to a friend's car, 2. connect to a PC for a minute or two (it won't boot, but it will sort screen problems), 3. check again if there are other connections to the head unit, 4. visit your Lexus dealer and ask for an update (tell them that you need wired Carplay).

If all fails please tell us what you have already done to enable us to give more specific help. Please be patient, standard boot will take up to 40 seconds, first boot can take up to two minutes.

Bye for now Fred

I bought a Carplay2Droid-4G device and it doesn't work with my Volvo XC 40 (MY2020), despite the fact that my car is officially one of the 600 models compatible with carbotics. When I plug in the carbotics device to my USB port, it is discoverable as an apple device, but the initial menu never loads. I waited for more than 10 minutes without a result. I have tested it with my car's Bluetooth on/off, with or without a sim card, but nothing changes.

Note that when I tested the same Carplay2Droid-4G device with my friend's Peugeot 3008, it worked fine. No more than a minute was needed to load the start menu.

Any ideas, please? Does any member has the same car? Do I need to do something special to fix this problem?

RE: Voice assistant disables steering wheel music controls https://carbotics.net/community/troubleshooting/bug-voice-assistant-disables-steering-wheel-music-controls/#post-392 Tue, 04 Oct 2022 17:48:06 +0000 @ap756 yes steering wheel buttons work normally before triggering voice assistant.

The type of voice search search doesn't matter, they stop working as soon as voice assistant is working

I can't reproduce (no steering wheel with buttons in use).

@pres1o: Did the buttons work correct before?  Do the buttons work if you start Spotify NOT using voice control? Did you try other programs with and without voice control? We have to clarify the source of this "switch off button control". It might the transport protocol, voice control, Spotify or Android Auto itself (they continue to alter the program all the time. What worked today doesn't work tomorrow and vice versa). Sorry to be no better helper, please keep us informed what you found out.

Bye for now  Fred
