About the CRUX ACP-WLX

The wireless option for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

If you've got a factory or aftermarket car stereo that includes wired Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, CRUX's ACP-WLX interface lets you convert it to wireless CarPlay or Android Auto. Just set and forget — simply plug the interface into the stereo's CarPlay/Android Auto-compatible USB port, follow the simple onscreen instructions, and bingo, you're good to go wirelessly. The ACP-WLX will remember your settings when you hop back in your vehicle. The ACP-WLX interface works with any factory radio with wired Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and with select aftermarket stereos with wired Apple CarPlay/Android Auto made by Alpine, Kenwood, JVC, Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Boss, Dual, Axxera, and Stinger.

Wired or wireless

This CRUX solution includes the compact interface and cables you need to connect to your stereo's USB input. The ACP-WLX includes a pass-through USB port, so you can switch back to wired operation if you need to charge up your phone's battery. If you want to stay wireless, you may want to consider a wireless Qi charger to help keep your iPhone's battery replenished.

Note: This interface only works with radios that offer wired Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. It is not compatible with factory radios that require the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto app to be downloaded.

Compatible aftemarket radios include Kenwood, Pioneer, JVC, Alpine, Jensen, Boss, Dual/Axxera, and Stinger. It also works with factory radios that have built-in CarPlay and Android Auto (not compatible with factory radios that require the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto app to be downloaded).

  • Not compatible with the following aftermarket Sony radios - XAV-3200, XAV-3000, XAV-AX5600, XAV-AX5500, XAV-AX5000, XAV-305DB, and XAV-AX1000.

USB & Bluetooth Connectivity: The CRUX ACP-WLX features a USB-C port and comes with a 12" USB cable that plugs into your compatible factory or aftermarket radio's USB port that is used for CarPlay or Android Auto.
