CarDongle FW updates, Next Batch ETA
Hello CarDongle Backers!
The new CarDongle firmware for v1.0 and v1.5 has been released. You can update via OTA update. If your stereo no longer reads it, please connect your CarDongle to your PC using the Mirroid app: http://mirroid.com
We'll post the fw download on our support forums as well.
Batch shipped and more Components Arriving soon
We assembled a batch and shipped out last week. We estimate that it will be around 2-3 weeks until we have components to complete the next batch. If you haven't received tracking email, then your order is still in queue. Check your email's junk/spam folder just in case. Email us if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Support forums fixed
If you've received your unit and you need support, then check out our CarDongle.dev support forums: Forums
Thanks for your continued patience and support!
Got the email too, any clue what has been corrected or fixed? I have look around and found nothing as of yet.
@oldman3d The update-message came faster than the rest :-). Please wait another day before getting nervous. Regarding change log: Got no official note, but I'm sure Android Auto will be updated to version 8.1.xxx and some problems (hopefully StateManager etc ) will be addressed. If my "radar" is correct some of the connection problems with version 1.0 and 1.5 and some head units will be sorted. We'll see.
Bye for now Fred
There is no OTA update for me (V1.0) in mirroid (or smart updater). I have 2.4.64 installed and it keeps telling me that this is the latest one.
Hi there CarDongle team,
back in November 2020 I contributed to the IndieGoGo campaign. and after several delays, which were to be expected, the dongles would be delivered to me in 2021. Nothing has arrived at my place, despite the promises. How can I be sure I get my dongles now? Good luck anyway, and fingers crossed once more.
Still no firmware update 🙁
@scorp Unfortunately you're correct. I don't know what happened. The only two reasons I can suspect: Another lockdown and/or the announcement of Google (official since Sept. 27th): Android Auto gets the next update to version 8.2.xxx (which should correct some more car connection problems). Doesn't matter which reason, we just got another delay...
Bye for now Fred
Where is the Support forums? and is the newest FW out?
what are the steps for using Mirroroid? or is there another/better option? I seem to recall using "DXLdev"? back in August - thought that was a fail.
As stated elsewhere I use Vysor as a substitute for Mirroid (vysor.io). More stable and easy handling. Whatever you use be patient, no rush.
Bye for now Fred
@ap756 It seems to be a gap in communication. Update #39 states that "The new CarDongle firmware for v1.0 and v1.5 was released last month", though no FW update available for quite a long time.
My CD is being sitting in a drawer since it is switches to orange in the car (cannot be recognized) or Mirroid.
@scorp - mine is collecting dust as well. It arrived in August and have yet to get this garbage to work. I saw a similar device - car genie on Kickstarter - but afraid to back as expecting a similar “experience.” Fool me once…
@sethm61 I found 2 other products on amazon, one with 2GB RAM, another one with 3GB RAM + support of sim card. (my CD has 4GB of ram), I still hesitating to try these new devices since I kept hope that Cardroid would come up with new FW soon. But... they would not leave me other choice with their fake updates.
