About the CRUX ACP-WL

Go with wireless Apple CarPlay

What makes Apple CarPlay even more convenient? Wireless Apple CarPlay, of course. If you've got a factory radio or an Alpine, Kenwood, JVC, Pioneer, or Sony car stereo with wired Apple CarPlay, CRUX's ACP-WL interface lets you convert it to wireless CarPlay. Simply plug the interface into the stereo's CarPlay-compatible USB port, wait for confirmation on the stereo's display, and switch it on through the Bluetooth® settings in your iPhone®. And bingo, you're good to go wirelessly. The ACP-WL will remember your settings when you hop back in your vehicle.

Simple integration

"So now when I hop in my 2017 VW and don't need a charge, I don't even have to get my phone out of my pocket to use CarPlay. This interface also features a USB pass-through port. I leave my iPhone's Lightning® cable in the car in case I decide I need a charge, and when plugged in, the wired CarPlay re-syncs and takes over. It's a great piece that I think our customers will love.”

— Darren, Crutchfield Vehicle Integration Buyer

Wired or wireless

This CRUX solution includes the hideaway interface and the USB-A to USB-C plug to connect to your stereo's USB input. The ACP-WL includes a pass-through USB port, so you can switch back to wired CarPlay by connecting your iPhone using a Lightning® cable to keep your battery charged. If you want to stay wireless, you may want to consider a wireless Qi charger to help keep your iPhone's battery replenished.
