    Hi Guys,

    This is a very BETA apk for mirroring GPS from your phone to the CarDongle Screen.

    We recommend waiting for the official release via OTA update.

    BETA APK Download

    Settings > Other Settings > Utilizing mobile phone GPS as map GPS

    Someone tried this update?

    Does the GPS mirroring works?

    This is only the APK, we can’t make the change in settings yet without a new firmware. The option doesn’t show up (settings > other settings > Utilizing mobile phone GPS as map GPS) I also don’t see the settings area the app itself is looking for (settings > location > location access) I don’t know if that is an app setting, or Android settings.

    In short, it is half of what is needed.

    Remember folks, when @admin says they “recommend” waiting for a later release….they really mean “DO NOT INSTALL THIS THING I JUST GAVE YOU BECAUSE IT MAY BRICK YOUR DEVICE AND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    lol

    ahahaha you are right

    Too bad there’s one very important thing missing this time. A nice setting they have indicated in the guide……….

    But do they, before posting things, give it some thought?

    Well, the APK is installed on my Pixel4 xl; shows it is connected, but since the setting isn’t in this current firmware on the CarDongle itself, it’s only half way there.

    @Tommy, when is the firmware being released that includes the setting you outlined? I mean if that isn’t being released until around the 20th, then why release this post 8 days too early? Kinda jumped the gun there.

    @Tommy – as we need to install this APK on our phones, can you give us a run down on what it does, what permissions it needs, and why it needs them?

    So, I received the OTA Update a few minutes ago. It does show the new GPS Mirroring option in Settings. I have turned it on and rebooted the CarDongle. Is the APK found on this forum page, GPS4Dongle_1.0.2.APK.1.1, what I need to install on my phone? Does it need to be renamed, remove the .1.1 from the end, to install? My phone just wants to open it as a file with WINRAR and not install it as a program.

    Also, I know it has been asked before in another thread but can’t you just use the Vehicle GPS through Android Auto?

    Aggiornamento che non permette a Waze di funzionare ,prima funzionava bene ,ora non vede più la posizione corretta .Maps non funziona ancora,perde il segnale come prima ,e adesso anche Waze è in continua ricerca di GPS. L’apk che c’è su drive non è un apk non riesco ad installarlo perché mi dice che è uno zip, ma nello zip non c’è l’apk che si può installare ,soluzioni ???????

    Guarda Stefano,
    sinceramente non ho ancora provato l’aggiornamento rilasciato in accoppiamento con app che hanno linkato.
    Partiamo dal fatto che app su drive dev’essere installato sul cellulare. Per farlo ovviamente devi eliminare la parte finale del nome (.1.1) quindi lasciare solo l’estensione .apk

    L’aggiornamento via OTA rilasciato non correggeva niente ma implementava solo l’impostazione nella sezione “SISTEMA” che effettivamente mancava per far funzionare il tutto come loro dimostravano nel video.

    @Peacook93 Did you upgrade it from inside your car or via Mirrorid? I don’t think it should matter but I can see the upgrade button ready to go, I click it, but nothing is happening… all via Mirrorid. If I give it a few seconds, go to a different screen and come back, it’s ready to be clicked again, but just greys out after being clicked.

    Did it take you awhile to get it to install?
