If you’ve ever wanted to use Android Auto in its wireless form, an adapter to do so has probably come on your radar. Now, after almost two years in the works, the first wireless Android Auto adapter, AAWireless, can finally be purchased directly.
Where to buy AAWireless
Since the launch of its finalized product in 2021, AAWireless has only been available through Indiegogo. That’s as a result of the chip shortage and various other roadblocks, as well as just keeping up with demand for the product.
But as of this week, AAWireless can be purchased directly from the company’s website.
In the US, you can purchase the wireless Android Auto adapter for $89.90, and it will ship for free within one to five days, depending on your location. In the EU, the online shop for AAWireless will be available soon, as the company works to comply with local requirements and regulations.
As for the Indiegogo campaign, it will remain open for the time being. Interested customers can still purchase through the crowdfunding site, with shipments going out once per week – you’ll probably get your order sooner if you purchase through the web store directly.
Is AAWireless the best Android Auto adapter?
What is AAWireless? As mentioned, it’s an Android Auto adapter that enables your vehicle to use a wireless version of Android Auto. It won’t add Android Auto to a car that doesn’t already have it, but it makes the feature more convenient to those who already have it.
Earlier this year, we published a full review of AAWireless, and we were pretty pleased with it after a few months of use. The product is generally ready to go out of the box, but it offers some settings you can tweak afterward for better compatibility, and gets regular software updates, too. That’s one advantage it has over the Motorola MA1, which has no way to receive firmware updates to fix issues.
