Added the hub to my NA 2017 GTI SE about a year ago. Both USB-ports are Apple-ready. The good news is I got it to work, the bad news is unfortunately not consistently. For whatever reason sometimes both ports were working, other times only one, and randomly none. Sometimes a headunit restart helped, unfortunately not always.
Life went on and I pulled everything back out to get a single port working consistently.
Watching the thread to resolve it on my car one day… maybe?
Thanks Davide. I have used the following HSD cables for the purple and brown outlets. At the green plug the modified HSD cable that came from the factory. Without the HUB attached both USB-ports I have worked flawlessly. I even tried a different USB-Hub w/ the same result. Makes me wonder if the HSD cable(s) are the issue or the HU.if I am not mistaken I was observing such a behaviour when the HSD cables are straight... they need to be crossed over.
I'll check the HSD cables once I get back home to my car.@ZERO815
the diagram you attached shows the cable as crossed over so they should be ok. man, I honestly cannot remember and I did not take notes right after completing the retrofit, but I remember struggling with cables a bit. like maybe, the one from 5F to hub is straight, the purple needs cross over and the brown needs straight again. or maybe who knows, if cheap chinese cable they say it's crossed, but is it actually? double check!
I would suggest you simply try all different combinations and write down the steps as you go, with 3 cables it shouldn't be much work.
Actually it's even more complicated. But let me try to explain:So the hub works w/ non-carplay USB ports only?
