Carlinkit on my Polo GTI: A dashcam & offers wireless Apple CarPlay too

It is a Chinese product but the build quality is good & the UI, even though not great, is quite manageable.

Wireless CarPlay in the GTI

Few weeks back I installed Apple CarPlay in the GTI. Then I found an option to make it wireless using a Carlinkit. My old dashcam which I was using since 2015 was on its last legs, hence decided to get the dashcam combined with wireless CarPlay. I often take my phone out for photos and videos during a drive and wireless CarPlay is a boon.

Link to the product

It is basically an Android phone and the dashcam view is visible on the car system itself. You get Android Auto built in as well. It is a Chinese product but the build quality is good and UI, even though not great, is quite manageable. The camera quality is not as great as the latest 70mai/ddpai cameras.
