Wireless Carplay

Post by ChrisC3A » Tue Dec 24, 2019 12:00 pm

Just got myself a new iPhone and when playing with the settings/general/CarPlay it says about setting up for wireless CarPlay. Now I’ve had a look online and it does say the C3 Aircross is one of the models possible to activate this. Mine is a June 2018 shine 130 but it doesn’t seem to want to connect... although mine is a Spanish car as I live in Spain.
There is a touchscreen update available which I’m a little reluctant to do just incase it stuffs it up.
Anyone on here managed to activate wireless CarPlay?

The list of cars supporting it is small at the moment:
Audi A6 (2019 and newer)
Audi A7 (2019 and newer)
Audi A8 (2019 and newer)
Audi Q8 (2019 and newer)
Audi e-tron SUV (2020 and newer)
BMW 5 Series (2017 and newer)
BMW 3 Series (2018 and newer)
2019 BMW range
Lamborghini Urus (2017 and newer)
Mercedes A-Class (2018 and newer)
Mercedes GLE (2019 and newer)
2019 Mini range

You can connect but you need a wireless dongle.

This is a list that supports Carplay via usb, not wireless Carplay.

Just bought one..
Theres no wireless carplay but you can connect vis the front usb . When I first set mine up I used cafele usb cable with an apple lightening lead it worked initially they kept dropping out and back to the radio. You need an authentic apple usb cable and it should work fine
Just make sure you use an original apple usb cable new or nearly new.

Same applies with Samsung. You must use a good quality lead, preferably a Samsung original lead.
