Is anybody experiencing intermittent connectivity troubles with CarPlay?

Additionally, please verify whether it is connected when you get the opportunity. If it fails to connect, just reboot your CX90, and it often reestablishes the connection.

Typically, I am in a hurry and start driving before realising that the device hasn't connected. By that time, I am typically in a position where I am unable to pause and begin again.

On another forum, it was mentioned that the CX-90 used a WiFi connection for CarPlay. Does anybody know the reason? Is there a specific rationale for choosing WiFi over Bluetooth? Bluetooth can simultaneously connect several devices, but WiFi can only connect one device at a time. This is likely to result in more problems.

I have discovered the solution to this. This is my first experience using CarPlay, so I am a novice. Being a dedicated Apple user, I was frustrated that my 2017 Dodge Durango did not have CarPlay, which was introduced in the 2018 model. Here is the reason for the WiFi:
Wireless carplay uses Wi-Fi for transmitting data such as Maps and Music. Bluetooth establishes the connection, but the data transfer occurs via Wi-Fi. Bluetooth lacks sufficient bandwidth and requires Wi-Fi for data transmission.

This problem is not present. We own the iPhone 13 Pro and 15 Pro models running the most recent operating system. They are always connected.

The automobile may have the most recent upgrade since we acquired it directly from the boat in early November.

Here is an article detailing the process of connecting to CarPlay.

CarPlay is consistently functional for me, however I have connectivity issues with Android Auto. Google Maps and Waze tend to disconnect after around 30 minutes on the first connection. However, when reconnecting, they perform flawlessly for the remainder of the journey.

Initially, it occurred during the day, and I attributed it to the sun/heat, but then it also happened at night.

I have the turbo premium and I have attempted both wireless and cable connections without success. My CarPlay connection attempts are unsuccessful, while I have a Bluetooth connection that allows my music to play over the audio, the touch screen remains unresponsive. I have spent several hours attempting to make the automobile operational. I have removed the phone from the system twice and attempted to connect using both wired and wireless methods. Are you implying that I must register for the hotspot in order for it to function? Any other recommendations before I go another 78 miles to the dealership and seek their assistance? When we retrieved the vehicle, the servers were down, preventing us from using the app. However, the issue has been resolved and the app is again functioning properly.

Ensure that Bluetooth remains chosen. Wireless CarPlay uses wifi for communication with the vehicle. When CarPlay couldn't connect, I discovered that the Wi-Fi was deactivated or set to disabled and couldn't be re-enabled automatically.

I suspect there could be a problem with either my phone or the automobile. I ensured that the WiFi box was selected and have completed all necessary steps. I am able to play music and view videos from the phone, and hear audio, but there is no video as the system is not establishing a connection via CarPlay. I will bring it to the dealership on Thursday. Thank you for attempting to assist, it is already showing animosity against me!
