Looking for an alternative to the pre-installed carlink app?
What is carlink app?
Carlink app can be pre-installed on your android headunit by the manufacturer to link your phone to the headunit. This could be by a USB type of data cable or some links will work over wifi.
What are my alternatives?
Zlink is an alternative app that can do the same functions of carlink but in a different interface. You can disable carlink app in the android settings and use zlink instead.
I don’t like zlink
You don’t like zlink and want the carlink back? Just uninstall zlink and enable carlink app in the settings
Where do I get zlink?
A very helpful member of xda forums called thienthanty has extracted their copy of zlink app and packaged it into an .apk for sideloading onto your android headunit. Check out this link to zlink.apk on xda. Mega hosted and a snip over 15Mb, you don’t need playstore to install it.
