STEP 3: CONNECTIONS

You see the gateway in the picture, you come and plug into it. So we have to disconnect the gateway and connect our power plug and reconnect the gateway with the socket so as to make a bridge.

At this level, make a test if the original microphone is used by the Carplay system for Siri for example. Otherwise, simply add the supplied microphone under the steering wheel so that it is discreet.
