Simply connect the adapter to a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port on your Mac and then to your TV or projector via a VGA cable (sold separately).

For some currently unknown reason, the video on an external monitor glitches periodically to a low resolution and the only way to reset it is to change the resolution to some other value and then back to best for monitor setting. I have found it best to not use this adapter with external USB drives of any kind. Sometimes the drive decides to unmount in the middle of a read or write operation--Not good for data integrity or drive performance. The biggest negative is that there are no documented alternatives that do not have similar poor reviews. I guess this line of netbooks, oh, sorry, premium Apple notebooks with USB-C really isn't meant to be used with any external peripherals ... other than a charger and a set of ... headphones ...

      Useless since last update

      Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware update -- unless you're ready to reboot at least once a day: it sure works, for a few hours, and then the LED of your drive lights up, you hear the drive spin (if that kind of drive) but it no longer mounts, until you reboot. C'mon, what is this? Not even worth a single star...

      No QA by Apple on this dongle accessory

      I too just had my new Dongle fail during a time of need (an important lecture). As a specialist in quality assurance of manufactured goods, I can tell you tha I too just had my new Dongle fail during a time of need (an important lecture). As a specialist in quality assurance of manufactured goods, I can tell you that Apple doesn't have a QA program on this accessory. If they did have a QA, they would never have so many poor reviews--especially for the price. Infuriating. I've owned MacBook Pros since the very first MBP. As the saying goes "They just don't make them like they used to". Higher and higher prices, but far less dependability by Apple as the years go by. Sad to see...........

      Doesn't work, don't buy, horribly broken

      First thing that happens is it will ask you to do a software update for the dongle, which will require you to do a full reboot of your computer, taking several First thing that happens is it will ask you to do a software update for the dongle, which will require you to do a full reboot of your computer, taking several minutes Once that's done, plug it in and plug a VGA projector in and your machine will either freeze or kernel panic. 100% reproducible every time. So I went to London for a conference and went the Apple store to swap it, obviously it was defective. New dongle did exactly the same thing with both my machine, and a colleagues machine on a new projector. Same issue, 100% reproducible. In the end I returned it and got my money back. To this day I have yet to see an Apple USB C dongle work with VGA. For reference, you can buy a much cheaper dongle that works out of the box on Amazon, and the hyperhub HDMI plugged into a basic HDMI to VGA adaptor works perfectly too

      Don't expect it to work with HDMI

      Am at a client, preparing to give a presentation and connected the HDMI port to the projector HDMI port. No output at all. Tried another HDMI cable, same. A Am at a client, preparing to give a presentation and connected the HDMI port to the projector HDMI port. No output at all. Tried another HDMI cable, same. And, yes, it is updated to vn 2.35 latest driver. Tried using a colleague's PC and all worked fine first time. Can only assume Apple products are still not reliably business-ready. There is not 100% reliable pass-through for HDMI on this product.
