I’m curious to know whether this retains steering wheel controls. I’ve seen a lot of YouTube postings about this particular model, but none with our specific model.

I just got mine a few days ago. It works fine though there were a couple of times where it would connect and then disconnect and bring me back to the homescreen.

When running, CarPlay acts as if it has dial controls as some other cars do and will add an outline to a button unlike the stock Civic CarPlay. It's nothing major but it was definitely something that stood out to me.

One drawback that I've noticed was the delay when skipping songs or seeking while playing podcasts with the steering wheel controls. There seems to be about a 1-2 second delay after pressing the button on my steering wheel.

Overall, wireless CarPlay is great and it's awesome to start my car with my phone in my pocket and have CarPlay automatically come up on my head unit.


If anyone's curious, I also installed this wireless charger built for 10th gen Civics so that I can charge my phone when needed while also keeping the wireless connection going.

Also to clarify I have downloaded the apk to the head unit but when trying to connect the phone to the box it drops the Bluetooth connection instantly

I think you have a different product. This one is for iPhone only and doesn't require the apk.
