Yeah, the Mustang branding is the odd part.
I'd seriously consider buying a Tesla except they don't have Apple CarPlay.
My sister was riding with me yesterday when I was receiving alerts, and she mentioned she wasn't getting the speed trap and abandoned vehicle notifications with Google Maps on her IPhone, either. So, that functionality must only be on the Android version of the app right now.Quite possible. I am stuck with the iPhone for now but I prefer Android.
CarPlay works well with my iPhone Xs Max and 2020 Toyota Tacoma, although I've found some glitches. For example, I put together a roughly 3000 song playlist on Tidal and download it to the phone for road music, so I don't have to stream. It is impossible to start playing this playlist from the Tidal app on the head unit. I get a spinner that goes round and round for 30 seconds or so before giving me an error - "This content cannot be loaded." However, if I start the same playlist on the PHONE, it beings playing immediately. Same thing for Apple Music or Amazon Music HD. Definitely a flaw.
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 bring up a very interesting thing I never took into account...
Using services like Tidal or Qobuz uses up a lot of data when you are playing the Hi-Rez formats.
I have a very generous Verizon plan (75GB), but that doesn't mean I have to take it to the limits each month.
So, I can actually download the playlists to my iPhone in Hi-Rez while on WiFi and then play it back with no usage of data?
I am new to this kind of stuff so I really had no idea.
