Wirelinq Smart Android USB Type-C Car Converter Cable
USB > USB Type-C
Compatible with most vehicles 2009 and up that have USB port supporting the iPhone with the Lightning cable*, and with the Android phones with OS system 4.1 and up.
Wirelinq is a Smart Android USB Cable converter that allows for the easy integration of Android phone to the car stereo in most vehicles manufactured in 2009 and up.
Connected to the USB port of the vehicle car stereo, it allows for the full integration of music, text, titles, cover art, controls via car stereo and steering wheel buttons, and browsing of the music via car stereo touch screen. The device will also charge the phone while in use.
Wirelinq has a smart chip with GROM proprietary algorithm inside its USB connector. Using Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) protocol, available on all Android phones with OS system 4.1 and newer, Wirelinq enables your phone to communicate to the car stereo easily. As a result of such “handshake,” your stereo can play the music directly from your phone and display the text, titles, and cover art no matter where the music is streamed or stored on your device.
*Note that USB port in your car should support iPhone via regular USB to Lightning cable. If the port supports iPhone with the "special" cable from vehicle manufacturer, Wirelinq will not work.
Some phones do not support the USB-AOA protocol required by Wirelinq to work.
do not currently have a complete list of phones as this information is
not available anywhere on the Internet or in any documentation.
Some phones only support USB audio streaming. In this case, you are limited to the functions in the DashLinq application.
Only use the Spotify plugin built into the dashlinq app. The spotify plugin currently does not support local music (stream only).
It can cause problems if an adapter from USB-C to Micro-USB and vice versa is used.
