Apple Carplay and Emteria
I think it is obvious to everyone that a huge amount of the interest in Emteria and Android on RPI is related to in-car infotainment. This is a huge application area and I think there are a couple of things holding emteria back in this regard that I will get to later.
But for now, some good news - I have got Apple Carplay working using a carplay usb dongle, RPI and Emteria 0.7.1
There is huge interest in getting car play working on the PI. E.g. see here:
There are a number of issues holding this back:
- Bluetooth support - my dongle supports wireless carplay, but with no bluetooth support I am limited to plugging my phone into the dongle.
- RPI 4 support
- Latest version of Emteria 0.8.1 does not support the official RPI touchscreen (DSI).
- Support for external USB sound card
Would be great to see progress in these area - I think there are a lot of potential users waiting in the wings if these can be solved.
Edit: This USB mic and audio out splitter is working for me on Emteria 0.7.1: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N905VOY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
