If you wish to use this AI Box for wireless CarPlay or Android Auto, the pre-installed Zlink app allows you to connect your mobile wirelessly to the AI Box. This it the first time I’ve seen the newer 5.2.43 version come pre-installed. This version brings a few nice additions including a way to improve the sharpness of the wireless stream in high definition and float a Zlink option button over other applications for fast switching, whilst background connection and driver position toggles round up the app’s more standard settings.

Connection to wireless CarPlay took around 15 seconds, whilst Android Auto took a little faster at about 10 seconds to connect, after the initial Bluetooth pairing. So for a bigger picture, add these times to both the initial bootup of the system and the dongle startup time and you’ll end up with around 80 seconds from a cold boot into Wireless CarPlay and about 77 seconds into Wireless Android Auto.

Once in either platform, the experience is much the same as you would expect with any wireless adapter, however, I did notice some streaming artefacts occur with fast map movement in wireless CarPlay at times, and on my Coral Vision display the Android Auto interface was very small and practically not that useable due to the size of the icons and their hit zones when pressing them. But with that said, everything functioned as intended on both platforms, with the usual wireless audio delay traits and experiences.

Overall, my time with the Briq2-Pro has been good, but when considering the faster alternatives out there, it isn’t the best. It does tick many boxes as the most current and popular AI Boxes do, with its average level of technology inside its sleek looking case, just don’t expect a zippy experience overall. KyeBriq has done a great level of optimisation on the Android 10 platform, which makes this AI Box good enough for video streaming and low-level tasks. It’s let down by its no frills, floating button user interface, which can frustrate at times compared to a fixed side menu. I did lose audio at times in the media player and in games, and I also found times where it struggled to display my high bitrate local video files, so this just shows if you push this AI Box too hard with certain performing apps it will bite back at you and it may leave you wanting something that performs a little better.

Purchases a Divo android box during the December sales. Encountered some issues and contacted the seller. After sale service is definitely commendable. Seller is knowledgeable about product and readily provided the solution to my issue. The unit is working great without lag and i would recommend to anyone looking for an android box for carplay.

Best money spend on my Avante CN7 till date. No longer the days where i need to listen the same old songs in thumbdrive or download from PC into thumbdrive, those are the old days. Now, everywhere I go I can simply touch on any songs I want to, can even play my wife or son favourite songs on the spot with simple autoconnect to my phone hotspot. What is there to ask for when you can have the spit screen as well which are useful if you are using Google map. 😃😇

I purchased the device for my MY22 Kia Sorento GT and it's been exactly what I've wanted. Connectivity has been seamless and has great functionality compared to the base infotainment system. I recommend this product to anyone after a wireless android auto/carplay and streaming experience. Must also note the swift after sale service when I needed assistance.
