Where did you end up purchasing that extra switch panel? Also, have you seen one around that takes the same half-height switches the car comes with?
To answer your 2nd question I "made" one 22mm switch panel. Once the additional 22mm push button switch arrives, I'll install this new panel (Aux. Battery, Mirror switch and 2 blank ones):

Hi! I’m new to the forum, though I bought my Rav last November. I got a full sized spare, tinted windows, and rubber floor mats and cargo mat done for pick up. View attachment 166846

This year after deciding I wanted to personalise my car a bit, I found these forums. They’re awesome!
I’ve blacked out all my emblems

And then I’ve put some red pinstripe in the front grill

edited to add: I also have personalised plates which I put on this year
Looks good. Do you have a link for the pinstripes? Thanks!

AA Wireless installed (from Indiegogo campaign). Works flawlessly

Not trying to thread derail here but I've also been thinking about kicking into the fund to get on the list for one of these.

How long does it take when you start the Rav for the dongle to boot and your phone to connect and appear on the infotainment?

Does the communication between phone and dongle use Bluetooth or WiFi?

How is latency with touch and notifications and delay changing tracks with steering wheel controls?

My wife's work just got her a 2021 F150 and it has wireless Android Auto/CarPlay and now I'm jealous. 😂

Thanks!

Just checked mine and my wife’s. They took exactly 16 seconds from the moment the head unit is ready to go (not from the moment the vehicle starts). I didn’t try touching the screen, but changing tracks and volume controls from the steering wheel are instantaneous.

From the website:

“Our adapter has WiFi and Bluetooth hardware. It connects with Bluetooth and sends the WiFi credentials to the phone, then disconnects from the Bluetooth network. It works solely on WiFi from that point on.”

Sweet! WiFi pairing is the way to go to avoid the latency. I think imma pick one up and install it behind the dash out of sight. I can always pull the plug if I need to power cycle it.

My Limited has the wiring in place for the Qi charger, might see if I can find a brown one on eBay or a junked Rav4 down the road for long trips with wireless AA 😎

So does the auxiliary battery button close a circuit that goes to the main battery in case it dies?

Also, where did you mount the auxiliary battery?
I did install a switch in the cargo area near the aux. battery for that purpose. The switch on the panel is to turn off automatically charging when ignition is on (when I don't want it to be charged).

Mine is gas mode so the aux. battery was easily installed on the cargo right lower corner where the hybrid 12V battery should be located.
