When I hook up to the device network all I get is network error that shows upI downloaded the update and copied the file to a flash drive formatted fat32. I plugged the flash drive into the dongle. Then I plugged the dongle into the usb charger for my phone. Waited about 4 minutes until the blue and red LEDs were lite on the dongle.
I went to the car...
I plugged the dongle into the car with the car in accessory mode. A screen appeared with a WiFi SID and password. Went to my phone and connected to that sid. The SID appeared on the phone but did not appear to connect but I continued. On my chrome browser went to 192.168.50.2. At first nothing happened and then tried scanning the QR code and then the update screen appeared. Not sure if the IP address or scanning the code made the update screen appear. The update screen was part bad English, part Chinese. Clicked update. Status bar appeared and it progressed towards 100%. At that point I rebooted the device via the car radio screen and the new connect interface appeared.
On a side note the return address is indeed in China. And the company stated a $25 restocking fee still applies even though the android functionality was a complete buggy mess. Especially true now that the android functionality has been reduced to screen mirroring. I will continue my PayPal dispute until a USA return address is received AND my refund is received and no restocking fee applied
