Any tips for activating Apple CarPlay without WiFi antenna?

i have succeeded activate apple carplay on my friend's car, but it seems like it's struggling to do stable connection. my guess is it's in dire need of wifi antenna behind the HU_NBTEvo unit.

does anyone tried to activate 6CP without wifi antenna? is there any tips and trick to get stable connection?

or might as well retrofit the antena?


Thanks

Hi CarPlay will work without WiFi antenna but you will have to keep your phone close to the head unit at all times.

Code 6cp to the HU_NBT2 and generate some required fsc code
