I recently received a Bolt to test (thanks Anker) and its help build some tech life into our 12 year old car and our iPhone 6S Plus running iOS 12
We have a 07 Acura MDX with Rear Seat ent unit (unused for over 7 years since the kids are now older).
The fit for the plug was a little tight due to the location of the 12V port in the MDX and had to angle it just right to get the headphone jack in.
Had to use a AUX cable (bluetooth audio is not supported on our car) to the back of the center console where the Aux input is and gets in the way of the rear passengers leg room… – update bought a right angle RCA cable from Amazon and its reduced the issues with the cables getting stuck in passenger legs.
Paired both the ROAV Bluetooth devices on our iPhone
For the most part, i can use Google to play messages, call for directions…
Have to initiate music directly on my phone and then it plays through the ROAV/AUX in on the car (which is a huge bonus as i had never used the AUX in on this Car in the last 10+ years of ownership) and used to listen to Radio or the few CDs i had in the changer…
Can’t launch Pandora or apple music using voice commands (will be useful), have to launch the app, play the music and then i can use OK google to skip tracks.
Also had to delete my Bluetooth Paring between the phone and car so the phone calls can be answered through the same setup, just have to figure out the best way to answer the call as if i answer on the phone, it always pops up with a selection of what to route audio too (phone, speaker or Bluetooth…)
Like it a lot. unfortunately we have another older car (08 Mercedes E350) which does not have an AUX in (only iPhone 30 pin) and it would be a challenge to get this unit installed in there…
Wish someone made a plug in CarPlay / Android Auto adapter for the older cars
