Is anybody else experiencing intermittent connectivity troubles with CarPlay?


Recommended Posts

Agreed. I reconnect manually when it happens. If it is unsuccessful, I will establish a wired connection.

Occasionally, this method is ineffective, and I must wait before restarting the car. However, it often ends up being successful in the end. I feel that all wireless CarPlay solutions have drawbacks.

Additionally, please verify whether it is connected when you get the opportunity. Simply reboot your CX90, and it often re-establishes the connection.

Typically, I am in a hurry and I quickly get into the car, begin driving, and only then do I realise that it has not connected. At that point, I am typically in a position where I cannot pause and begin again.

Occurs to me around 25% of the time. I am frustrated by the fact that when I attempt to connect manually, I encounter the spinning wheel of death and the connection fails, despite the vehicle recognising my phone.

Agreed. Connecting to CarPlay manually is ineffective. Next time, I will attempt to connect to a power source to see if it resolves the issue. However, my regular approach is to just turn off the vehicle and then resume it.

The CX-90 uses a WiFi connection for CarPlay, as mentioned in another discussion. Does anybody know the reason? Is there a specific rationale for choosing WiFi over Bluetooth? Bluetooth allows for simultaneous connections to several devices, but WiFi can only connect to 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 with CarPlay, therefore I am new to using it. Being a dedicated Apple user, I was frustrated that my 2017 Dodge Durango did not have CarPlay, which was included in the 2018 model. Here is the reason for the WiFi:
Wireless CarPlay uses Wi-Fi for transmitting data like as Maps and Music. Bluetooth establishes the connection, whereas the data transmission occurs via Wi-Fi. Bluetooth lacks sufficient bandwidth and requires Wi-Fi for data transmission.

This problem does not affect us. We own the iPhone 13 Pro and 15 Pro models running on the most recent operating system. They are always connected.

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

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

My CarPlay works reliably, however I get issues with Android Auto when Google Maps or Waze disconnect after around 30 minutes. Reconnecting allows them to operate perfectly 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 fails after first connecting, but I can still play music via the radio via Bluetooth without touch screen functionality. I have dedicated several hours attempting to make the automobile function properly. I have removed the phone from the system twice and attempted to connect using both wired and wireless methods. I hope you are not 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? The servers were down when we retrieved the vehicle, 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 may be a problem with either my phone or the automobile. I ensured that the WiFi box was selected. Despite completing all necessary steps, I am able to play music and hear audio from the phone, but unable to establish a connection for video playback using CarPlay. I will bring it to the dealership on Thursday. Thank you for attempting to assist, it seems to be disliking me already!
