I bought it and installed it with those removable adhesive dots on top of the console bump for the USBs. Connected it to the USB-C. Seems to work for what I tried. Testing will come on the next road trip. It's well out of the way for the charging pocket and frees up the space in front of the USB hookups where the old USB-A to lighting cable sat.

The only question I have now is how do you easily exit carplay or get back to the main sync3 menu? I sure don't want to turn off blutooth when I want to get back to something on the BS like adjusting the audio settings.

There's a dedicated app icon for "Sync" inside the Apple CarPlay user interface, which lets you bail back to the Sync3 part of the interface.

When I picked up our badlands, the dealer technology guy told us that there was going to be an update later this year to enable wireless apple car play. FWIW
Did a message go out recently on FordPass about this? Or was it just a basic SYNC 3 update? I must have deleted it!

Go to owner.ford.com. If you don't have an account open one there. There's a link to check whether your Sync system is up to date.

Just want to let you all know that the device Carlinkit 3.0, which allows Wireless Carplay, works with the 2021 Bronco Sport. I just decided to risk it and bought one from carlinkitcarplay. Got it today. I did have to update it first (it didn't work with the firmware out of the box) but now it's working fine. A good option to all the guys who own iphones and want a wireless connection.
