Multiple USB Connections - C5 Aircross

Post by JohnM52 » Tue Oct 01, 2019 4:49 pm

Having only the single USB port which connects to the sound system, I looked for an alternative 4 port hub. Many stated that they did not charge through the ports. Found one (4 port) by ThinkTek on ebay, £4.39. This now has two USB sticks connected as well as Phone on charge. Android Auto works as expected. All three are selectable from the usual screens.

I have no connection with this company, merely reporting the findings in case it helps anyone.

4 port Super Speed USB 3.0 Hub.

C5 Aircross Flair Plus 180 Petrol EAT8, Platinum Grey with Red Accents and Black Roof.
Now swapped to Quadraxer 2 tyres on the 19" wheels.

I too bought this USB Hub for my C3 Aircross. A nice, neat-looking piece of kit, but unfortunately doesn’t seem to be compatible with Apple Car Play. When I connected my iPhone to the hub, Android Auto appears on the Connectivity screen, but Apple Car Play is greyed out and unavailable, although it works ok when the iPhone is connected directly to the car’s USB port. Has anyone else purchased a hub which works with Apple Car Play?
