Update Firmware on Carlink CPC200-CP2A Wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto Dongle

I really want to love the Carlink CPC200-CP2A. As a multi-mobile OS family having a single dongle that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is amazing. Unfortunately, I’ve been having a couple issues with the device, and I haven’t been able to work them out with Carlink support. They suggested that I update the firmware, but there’s a MASSIVE issue with their workflow for doing that. This video demonstrates how to work around the device’s poor design.
