Love the garmin and app
I have a iphone xr and it has no issue at all. Works great and i move this from car to car as i rent alot. Alexa works great with only a few features not available like playing video. I would love if it would show nest and blink camera. That would make this product perfect. i can run my home lights, alarms, temp, irrigation and all other smart home features (less the cameras). Garmin features are hands free and very easy to use. I could not be happier with this product.
Wireless Apple CarPlay and This doesn’t Work
So I found a bug in the way this setup works, so if you have “wireless” Apple CarPlay and you want to view the cameras the system doesn’t work and you won’t be able to connect and view footage as the iPhone is trying to connect to the WiFi network generated by the radio for CarPlay so it never connects to the dash cameras. I called garmin support and was told I was added to a ticket and they were aware of the issue. I haven’t heard anything as of late....In today’s world were most radios are supporting CarPlay you would think this is more of a priority... anyway in case anyone else comes across this issue how to side step it if you need to connect to your cameras is go to the WiFi networks while your phone is connected to CarPlay and disable auto join on the WiFi network your radio generated and reboot your phone. Your phone won’t be able to use wireless CarPlay however you will be able to access the dash cams if needed.
I don’t do very many reviews but I have to say that everything about this is excellent. I know there are some that will want more but for me every time I use it I feel that I am getting a great device and app that works together. Keep up the good work guys and gals.
