1. Connect the wireless CarPlay dongle to the car's USB port.

2. Connect your car's WiFi to the WiFi network being broadcasted by the dongle.

3. Insert a SIM card with a valid data plan into the dongle.

4. Open the URL mentioned in the user manual in your car's web browser.

5. Pair your iPhone with the dongle using Bluetooth and then use a WiFi connection to start using wireless CarPlay in your Tesla.

I mostly use it every day, it's become 2nd nature. If the drive is less than like 5-10 mins or so, like getting food or running an errand, I don't bother plugging it in.

As for the connection, I've upgraded to the last firmware, which helped me a lot in terms of just stability and connection.
