Common misconceptions about wired and wireless Carplay
First of all, you have to know one thing:
At present, all wireless carplay devices have audio delay problems, no matter the original certified devices or the non-certified devices installed after the installation. Whether it is Mercedes-Benz BMW Porsche, or Toyota Honda Volkswagen.
The delay in wireless Carplay is mainly due to Apple's special settings in order to optimize the user experience of wireless Carplay (this sounds difficult to understand, in order to ensure the continuous audio stream and other reasons). The "culprit" of the delay is not the box. Some car owners, after changing from wired to wireless Carplay, mistakenly believe that the delay is caused by the Carlianyi carplay box, and turn to bad reviews on the box.
Lord, small injustice!
Charging while driving, charging > power consumption
The connection is stable and the delay is negligible
Sound quality, in principle better than wireless Carplay
Limited by the length of the data cable, the moving range is small, and it is inconvenient to use the mobile phone, especially when scanning the code to pay for parking, you may need to unplug the cable, and then reconnect to carplay
It is inconvenient to place. If there is no special area for mobile phones in the car, either place it on the mobile phone holder or place it at will, which will affect the appearance.
The data cable interface is loose or unplugged by mistake, which affects the carplay connection
Easy to connect, no need to unplug each time, automatic connection
Easy to use, the phone can be placed in a suitable place, not restricted by the data cable
Neat and beautiful, no data cable, the central control is much simpler
Increased lag (wired Carplay also has lag, it doesn't feel noticeable)
Connection is not as stable as wired
Sound quality does not support lossless (wireless support lossless)
Then you will find
Advantages of Carplay Wired = Disadvantages of Wireless
Disadvantages of Carplay Wired = Advantages of Wireless
Don't worry, the shortcomings are not as serious as you think
Che Lianyi answered everyone's concerns one by one:
Delay: Except for the delay of 1~2 seconds when cutting songs and reading lyrics, the delay of calling and navigating is no different from that of wired Carplay, and the experience is not obvious or even experienced.
Sound quality: Wired supports lossless, wireless does not support lossless, and the sound quality of wireless carplay is better than that of Bluetooth playback! This is determined by the audio protocol between the three. However, the actual sense of hearing in the car is affected by many factors such as the sound source, car audio, ear discrimination ability, etc., all without damage, and for most car owners, the difference is not obvious.
Stability: Whether it is the original wireless carplay of the original car or the wireless carplay converted from the box, the connection is stable for most car owners, most of the time, but nothing is absolute. It is undeniable that the occasional disconnection/reconnection does exist. , a box with excellent quality can greatly reduce the probability of disconnection/reconnection, such as Chelianyi.
Q: What should I do if I listen to Jay Chou's songs on wireless Carplay and do not support lossless?
The only solution:
Invite Jay Chou into your car and sing Adu's song "I should be under the car, not in the car".
