The MMB Android AI Box is a great new dongle for CarPlay that replaces CarPlay with the Android OS system, to allow you to use Google Android apps and games on your CarPlay display, such as YouTube, NetFlix, Prime Video to even games like Candy Crush and many more.

In this video I am going to take you through each step you need to do to update the dongle to the latest software to unlock new features, apply bug fixes and generally improve the experience of the MMB Android AI Box.

You’ll need a USB Flash Drive to load the update files onto the MMB Android AI Box, so below you will find some recommended drives, if you don’t have one.

SanDisk 8GB Cruzer Blade Flash Drive →
SanDisk 16GB Ultra Flash Drive →
PNY Attache 16GB Flash Drive →
Samsung 32GB Flash Drive →

You only need at least 1GB so you can try any cheaper alternatives, just make sure it is from a good brand like SanDisk, Samsung, PNY.

Follow the timestamps for each step process of this guide. If you encounter any issues let me know in the comments and I will try and help. Please do follow this guide as accurately as possible, making sure you download the correctly software for the dongle you are updating.
