With this update, it makes this dongle even better because the update addressed a few issues I had with it, namely the audio sync of YouTube video playback from your iPhone on your CarPlay display.
It is nice to have the ability to cast YouTube videos on your CarPlay display, the update brings improved screen zooming, where videos in the previous update were bordered are now cropped so it fits the full display on my Alpine head unit. Again, if you have a large iPhone Max and a small 6″ CarPlay display, you are better off watching on your iPhone without any issues of playback etc.
Unfortunately this update doesn’t improved switching between Media Cast and CarPlay. So it is best to boot into CarPlay and have the Media Cast option handy if you wish to cast video to your CarPlay display.
