    Would you be able to post a video or something on just running through the menus? It's been intriguing me for a while... Kind of curious how responsive it is.

    Did you opt for the wireless CarPlay option?

    Looks like the video is actually an L322 FFRR.

    Yep, I’m planning on putting together a short review post soon. Was wanting to get some more experience with it first.

    I did go the wireless option. Very occasionally it has problems connecting, but on the whole it’s very convenient. As for responsiveness, it’s not bad. I’d guess the update rate is a few frames per second and there’s usually a 0.5-1 second interactivity delay, but still completely useable and it doesn’t feel clunky. CarPlay limits the animations so you don’t notice it most of the time.

    And what I’m most excited about is GaiaGPS is planning to release CarPlay support (it’s in beta right now), so you’ll be able to navigate with Forest Service maps.

    BMW has a version of this sort of video Aux Input Carplay adapter. It's only $250 on Amazon/AliExpress/Ebay. Guess they always like to charge LR owners a little extra.

    Anybody try the android version?

    I would be happy if I could just my LR screen to mirror my phone. If I could get WAZE and Spotify on the screen, that's all I would really be looking for.
