CarlinKit 2air Wireless CarPlay Adapter 2023 REVIEW — MacSources

5 min readDec 6, 2023

Transform your car’s infotainment system with CarlinKit 2air Wireless CarPlay Adapter.

I’ve been a big fan of CarPlay ever since its first release in 2014. My one beef with the system is that it requires a wired connection for operation. I hate having cables draped across the dashboard in my car. There just isn’t any good place to hide them. This is why I am glad there are third-party adapters that enable wireless connection between your vehicle and your mobile device. These adapters ensure that you don’t have to be tethered to a clunky USB cable while enjoying infotainment systems such as CarPlay or Android Auto. Once such adapter is the CarlinKit 2air Wireless CarPlay Adapter, which I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to install in my car.

About CarlinKit 2air Wireless CarPlay Adapter

The CarlinKit 2air Wireless CarPlay Adapter is a sleek and innovative device that allows users to seamlessly connect their iPhones to their car’s infotainment system without the need for a cable. The adapter connects to your car’s USB port and acts as a wireless network for your phone to connect to. The 2air provides a senseless connection for CarPlay and Android Auto so that a mobile phone can automatically connect to the car’s infotainment system.

This adapter is only compatible with cars that have a factory-installed head unit that supports wired CarPlay/Android Auto. The device itself has a built-in colored LED that automatically adjusts and it’s designed with heat sink vents on both sides to dissipate heat for smooth operation — even in high-temperature environments. The 2air’s user-friendly design and robust performance make it a must-have accessory for anyone looking to enhance their driving experience with the latest in-car technology.
