    Trying out CarPlay

    Uhm.... Been using Carplay since iPhone X (?) Do you already have an iPhone that works with Carplay? If so, there is no difference. No modifications have been made since.

    Trying out CarPlay

    I am using Qobuz which is exactly like Tidal. Subscribed to their annual plan I am having similar issues as you are. However, Qobuz has admitted to me that their Carplay integration is still in beta and they are hoping for a full rollout in a few months. I can play on my iPhone. But you...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I have a very strong feeling that this is head unit related and not Carplay. I have a Ford/Lincoln vehicle and Carplay works flawlessly, though some apps still in beta from individual companies.

    Trying out CarPlay

    Nelson, So happy to read about your head unit install. Looks great and yes, you now have a more modern drive. Waze is my favorite navigation app. I had the volume issue too initially and also figured out it could be adjusted via the app. Yes, it does scroll in and out during your drive...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Scott, One thing that is important to realize, and I think you do realize this... Waze is an interactive mapping system that depends on nearby driver support. This means if you don't have a lot of fellow Waze users on the road, you aren't going to get up-to-date police reports. My area is...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I have really fallen in love with WAZE and I did not expect to. On the surface, it seems a little less feature-rich than Google Maps (though Google owns Waze), but it's the interactive features that really hooked me in. The interactive community of Waze drivers is what makes this such a great...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Scott, I want to thank you for recommending I try Google over Apple Maps. I had a rather lengthy roundtrip drive yesterday where I used the navigation tool for the first time via CarPlay. What a huge difference over Apple Maps...and I mean that in a positive light. I think the way the app...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Scott, Is it easy to set navigation on the Google Maps website Yes, used it a few times already. It's okay. I really wish there was a CarPlay app out there that displayed 3D view like the Garmin and TomTom units do. By that, I mean a more realistic view of the landscape. I did like the...

    Trying out CarPlay

    You can use Google Maps Navigation in CarPlay which is something I wish to try at some point as well as Waze.

    Trying out CarPlay

    For the most part, I was not impressed with CarPlay as it stands now. It's extremely generic looking despite the fact that some feel it's superior to their car's infotainment system. However, that being said, the new iteration in iOS 13 is night and day. It really modernizes the experience...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Now that I have put more thought to this thread, I now seem to have remembered an article talking about wireless Carplay coming into existence. At the time, I had a 2019 Honda Accord with a wireless charger. I didn't like the fact that I had to keep my phone wired to use CarPlay. I would...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I am a little surprised by your experience with CarPlay as opposed to mine. I have a new 2019 Lincoln MKX. The only way I can connect to Carplay is when I have a wired connection to my iPhone. CarPlay will not work via Bluetooth. In fact, unless I am misreading your post, I am surprised you...
