I own a Hyundai i30 N Line 2019/2020. I’ve just setup my Carsifi Adapter and paired it with my smartphone via Carsifi app today. Worked perfectly fine. It would auto connect/startup everytime I startup my car. But one feature would be really great to have is to have the adapter cut off from the power source instantly as soon as the car’s power ports are cut off from the battery.
In my case, my car does not turn off/cut off power instantly when i turn the engine off, the infotainment screen, dashboard and power ports will stay on for the next (at least) 10 minutes, OR UNLESS I open up any of my car’s doors, then, on that point it turns off everything except for the interior lights, then from there, the moment I lock up the doors, everything is turned off.
Issue (not so much really): Carsifi Adapter does not disconnect from my phone even if my car’s power ports are cut off from the battery (Carsifi Adapter’s port included), which causes Android Auto being still connected and my phone not being able to access Google Maps as it’s still projecting on the Carsifi Adapter. I’m aware of the button functions on the adapter, but I just think that that beats the purpose of this technology if that is the solution.
If I have to sit in my car and need a phone call or play media through AA, it’s fine as my smartphone is still connected. But in a scenario like, if I parked around the city and soon as I hop off of my car, maybe I’d need to look up something like directions on Google Maps, and because AA is still running I won’t be able to run Google Maps.
Yes, I know, I can just walk a bit further from my car so my smartphone disconnects from Carsifi Adapter. That’s one way to go, but it also reassures myself that nothing will be draining my car’s battery and not find my car’s battery flat eg. when I get back to it after a day at work or after not using my car on my days off and on the day I’m going back to work, that would be painful.
Request: Have the Carsifi Adapter turn off as soon as the power port is cut off from the car’s battery OR, intervene with Android Auto to stop as soon as the power port is cut off from the car’s battery.
Things that I’m not certain of on my side: I’m not completely sure if the power is completely cut off from the Carsifi Adapter’s power port as soon as I turn off or lockup my car.
To the Carsifi Team: I’m aware that it has been a rollercoaster of a ride for you guys, from getting materials to build these units to getting them to our doorsteps, that’s why I/we appreciate it so much! You guys have done a really good job!! Thank you so much!
