FAQs

Answers to our most common questions, setup instructions and update information.

Will this work with my car?

We have very good support with over 90% of vehicles with factory-installed CarPlay. View the list of known supported vehicles and head-units below and contact us if you're not sure!

What iPhone models are supported?

Every iPhone from iPhone 5 and above. We recommend at least iOS 10 is running on your phone.

How long does it take for Copilot to start each time?

Copilot will connect your phone wirelessly and boot CarPlay within 5-15 seconds. This depends on how new your iPhone is and how fast your vehicle's infotainment system is. You should expect similar startup time to what you get with a cable.

Are there any import duties, customs fees or tax/VAT to pay?

Depending on your country, there may be import duties or taxes to pay - this is the same for any product you import from overseas. Please note that the importer is responsible for import duties and taxes.

Can I pair two phones with Copilot?

Yes! Copilot automatically attempts to connect to the last used phone when you start your vehicle. It will cycle through the list of paired phones until it finds one within wireless range.

You can override this by selecting the desired phone you wish to connect to during the boot sequence.

How do I connect the adapter to my car?

It takes just a few minutes and you only should need to complete it once as your phone will automatically connect each time thereafter.

1) Turn on Bluetooth and WiFi modes on your iPhone. Ensure you temporarily disconnect from any existing Bluetooth or WiFi networks such as your car Bluetooth or home WiFi.

2) Plug the Copilot adapter into the CarPlay USB port in your vehicle. Copilot will display a red light.

3) Wait for your vehicle's screen to display the setup prompt. This can take up to 30 seconds.

4) Click the search button or search for Bluetooth networks on your iPhone.

5) Select the phone you want to pair with, or connect via the Bluetooth device displayed on screen.

6) Select "Pair" on your iPhone and "Enable Wireless CarPlay" when the notification appears.

Can I use my in-car WiFi network at the same time as Copilot?

Unfortunately not. The wireless CarPlay spec requires exclusive use of your iPhone’s WiFi network and therefore any data will be transmitted over your cellular data.

Does Copilot use Bluetooth or WiFi?

Technically, both! Bluetooth is only required for the initial connection. Wireless CarPlay then operates over an ad-hoc WiFi network between your phone and Copilot.

This is because wireless CarPlay requires more data bandwidth than Bluetooth can provide. The Apple wireless CarPlay spec is meant to operate over WiFi, by design.

How do I update the Copilot software?

We have regular software updates for your Copilot device to improve vehicle support and new technologies that become available for CarPlay. To update:

1) Connect your iPhone to the Copilot adapter and wait for CarPlay to appear on your vehicle screen.

2) Open Safari on your iPhone and go to http://192.168.50.2

3) Click the ‘Check for Updates’ button to search and download an update if one is available. This takes approximately one minute and is done entirely over the air.

How do I unpair a phone from my Copilot?

To remove a phone, press and hold the phone name on the connection page. After a few seconds, you will receive a prompt to delete.

You can always re-pair the phone at later date by following the setup instructions on screen.

Troubleshooting

We're here to help!

Most issues can be resolved quite quickly. We recommend:
- Ensuring the USB Type C cable is pushed in all the way and all connections are tight.
- Check you are running the latest iOS version on your iPhone (Settings > General > Software Update).
- The Copilot software (using the instructions above).
- Check your vehicle is running the most up to date software. Please visit your manufacturers website for more information.
- If your vehicle requires it, you may need to go into your infotainment settings and set up Copilot as a new CarPlay device.

We recommend ensuring you have temporarily disconnected from any WiFi networks and other Bluetooth devices. Your phone will still need to have WiFi and Bluetooth turned on for wireless CarPlay to function, but disconnect from any other networks during the setup phase.

If you are still having trouble, get in touch with us on Live Chat or email: hello@wirelesscopilot.com

Common Resolutions

Ford SYNC3

If you are not able to get your Copilot to connect to your Ford SYNC3 system, you may need to update your vehicle settings.

First, check the version of SYNC3 your vehicle is running. Some older models are running SYNC3 v2.x. Copilot, however requires SYNC3 v3.x. Most Ford vehicles can be updated to v3.4 and this is downloadable from the Ford.com website.

It is a simple process to update and can be done by following the manufacturers instructions. Once your SYNC3 is updated, Copilot should boot normally!
