The product integrates with most modern cars and allows wireless connection to the vehicle’s stereo system without replacing the head unit, assuming Android Auto is installed. Its simple design allows for easy integration with any existing system, and pairs with any Android device automatically, ensuring minimal distractions while on the road.

Carsifi was developed to give Android users a means to take advantage of Android Auto’s toolkit without using a wired connection. Any car that supports a wired Android Auto connection is compatible with the Carsifi device, which supports Android 9 and above by default – though the companion app can be patched to support older versions.
The one-button interface is fully programmable in the companion app; users can edit the click combinations to execute commands and play/pause audio or video sessions. In this way, one does not have to take their eyes off the road when using Carsifi, providing a safer, simpler experience for users.
This device uses an initial Bluetooth connection to recognize paired devices, after which it will rely on Wi-Fi for video and audio streaming.
Carsifi’s programmable technology also allows for a seamless transition between different devices. By double-clicking the button on the Carsifi module, the device will cycle between paired phones, allowing the driver to give control to the passengers with a simple action.
One satisfied customer said, “I had researched these devices and was unsure how easy it was to fit one and whether it would work at all. I should not have worried. The device was up and running within 5 mins of arriving. It works seamlessly and is very unobtrusive.”
The device is roughly half an inch thick and is overall smaller than a credit card, allowing it to be installed unobtrusively in any vehicle. Despite its small size, it contains a dual-core 1Ghz processor that makes the Carsifi’s remote lag-free audiovisual playback possible and a robust construction that functions in temperatures up to 80C or as low as -20C.
The team behind Carsifi comprises a trio of experienced engineers who, after being frustrated by unruly wired connections cluttering their car consoles, set out to create a solution that was as simple and elegant as possible.
