I ordered the CarlinKit to add a wireless CarPlay option. It's available on Amazon through the manufacturer's store, but cheaper if you order directly from their website carlinkitcarplay.com. NOTE: it ships from China but takes a week to arrive. I had no delay with USPS surprisingly.

In any event, I only tried it while parked and my phone had absolutely no issues connecting.

It appears to use a Bluetooth connection between the phone and device and the device appears to recognize that it's connected to a Benz vehicle. You don't specify the vehicle when you order, just need to make sure your vehicle is on the supported list. The Mercedes B 250 E was listed.

The unit is very small and lightweight. I used velcro to affix it to the underside of the storage compartment lid so that I could still utilize the "floor" space.

It comes with a short USB-C TO USB-A cable.

I tested Spotify while parked and there was a short moment of buffering and then streaming was fine; I'll have to send an update on prolonged use.
