    Trying out CarPlay

    Hi Ron, yes, I’ve been using CarPlay with an iPhone X. So I figured going to the iPhone 12 would be no different. Thought I’d ask. :) Thanks a lot!

    Trying out CarPlay

    Hey guys- I thought I’d ask about any experiences with the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro and CarPlay? I just ordered an iPhone 12 Pro. As I asked before, all cars with CarPlay capability and after market head units like the one I have from Dynavin have a conduit that acts as a pass through for an...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I would agree John. Before the latest iOS update, I had no problems. I suspect the firmware update might resolve the headunit issues. If that’s the case.

    Trying out CarPlay

    I see my headunit had a firmware update on January 2, 2020. So I’ll try that and see if my glitches get resolved.

    Trying out CarPlay

    Hey guys, thought I’d post and ask how you guys are doing with CarPlay after the latest iOS update? Up until the iOS update, my iPhone X and the Dynavin aftermarket head unit was working great in my BMW. The last couple of weeks I’ve experienced a few times when after I connected the iPhone to...

    Yeah, the Mustang branding is the odd part.

    Trying out CarPlay

    Thanks Ron! Interesting, I had not looked into other voices that Waze uses. I’ll try that later. About Google Maps, I have not tried that yet. So I’ll give it a try this week. I bet you guys are right about CarPlay functionality being car manufacturer specific. I didn’t know Tesla’s did not...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Hey guys, thought I’d follow up after having been living with the new head unit for the past two weeks and using CarPlay, it’s been very cool. It’s works very well and after doing some tweaking to adjust volume levels using the car’s original Harmon Kardon amplifier set-up, I think I may have it...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Hey guys- I thought I’d chime in that I took part of the holiday to install a new headunit in my 2001 BMW 330ci. As I said at the start of this thread, my original BMW head unit display had gone bad and was displaying gibberish. And I had been reviewing and staying on top of the latest updates...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Guys, I returned the loaner car to the dealer earlier this week and I’m back to 2001 BMW 3 series with an iPod Classic input. So I’m researching and doing my do-diligence on a replacement head unit. I have to say the driving experience is much better in my old driving machine verses the new...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I tried asking Siri to play an album this morning and it worked! I’m so used to Siri not being able to play an album or song in my iTunes library to the HomePod since I don’t use Apple Music. But glad to see the Siri in CarPlay can play music from my library in the iPhone. I’ll have to try...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Thanks! That’s great to know! About the wireless question, I wonder if at some point Airplay could be used to connect, like a HomePod. But then a car would need to have its own WiFi. The new cars are rolling computers now. :)

    Trying out CarPlay

    Thanks Cranston. It will be a few months before I buy and install the new head unit in my car. I look forward to all these new features to use in my old car! One last question, I doubt you guys will know for sure, but I get the sense that CarPlay capability in a car infotainment system is a...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I will for sure be getting CarPlay in the headunit I’ll install in my car Ron! It has been pretty cool for the short time I’ve been trying it. Cranston- I forgot about using Siri, I’ll try that on my commute to work tomorrow! And I checked out the unit in your link. Thanks for that!

    Trying out CarPlay

    Ron, thanks for chiming in. Yes, I was as surprised as you that I could connect to CarPlay via Bluetooth. From what I had been reading, the only way to connect to CarPlay is via cable connection. The Dynavin unit I am looking at can only connect CarPlay to the iPhone via a cable. There was a...

    Trying out CarPlay

    Hey guys- I have a 2001 BMW 330ci, so it’s old and was one year before iPod, let alone Bluetooth connectivity. I do currently use a third party connectivity product from Dice that connects to the CD changer connections in the trunk. It ties an iPod to the factory sound system, no iPhone...
