      I rented TWO KIA cars which both had CarPlay and the setup on one had me fiddling with the phone till I got it setup.

      The next car would not setup wirelessly. So I found my USB cable and connected up that way. After that I was able to use it wirelessly.

      -> THERE IS NO EASY STANDARD WAY TO SETUP CARPLAY!

      Unless you give up and have it done for you.

        CarPlay and Android Auto

        Both applications can be prone to difficulty with the initial setup. When I upgraded to my current Samsung S23 Ultra, I needed help with the local dealership rep for setup. The same phone worked in my prior Hyundai, but the newer car needed a little help. My S23 phone is working just fine in my current car.

          The KIAs were both 2023 models. Rentals.

          They didn’t have GPS so CarPlay was how we get GPS up on the big screen.

          -> I feel I was a bit lucky in remembering how security works on Android. That is, over WiFi and Bluetooth the security keys might not be exchanged. The TRICK is to connect with USB so the car and phone can exchange security credentials.

          Later when I checked the fine manual, no mention was made about that. But who reads manuals today?

          My prior 2 Hyundai Tucson’s also did not have GPS installed; it used my phone’s Android Auto application while my phone was plugged into the car’s charging port via USB cable. Once connected, everything worked exactly as they should once everything was synchronized between the car and the phone.

      To set up CarPlay, you’ll need a compatible car and an iPhone with the latest iOS version. First, ensure that your car supports CarPlay and that it’s connected to your iPhone via USB or wirelessly if supported. On your iPhone, go to “Settings,” then “CarPlay,” and tap “Available Cars to select your car’s name. If it’s a wireless connection, make sure Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are enabled on your iPhone and that your car’s infotainment system is in pairing mode. Once connected, CarPlay will appear on your car’s screen, allowing you to access your iPhone’s apps and features using the car’s touchscreen, buttons, or voice commands, enhancing your in-car entertainment and connectivity experience.

      Setting up CarPlay is a straightforward process, but it does require a compatible car stereo system and an iPhone with the latest version of iOS. Here are some easy steps to set up CarPlay:

      Check Compatibility:
      Ensure that your car’s stereo system is compatible with CarPlay. Most newer car models have this feature, but it’s essential to confirm. Additionally, make sure your iPhone is running the latest version of iOS.

      Connect Your iPhone:
      Using a certified Lightning-to-USB cable, plug your iPhone into the designated USB port in your car. Some cars may have multiple USB ports, so be sure to use the one specifically designated for CarPlay.

      Enable CarPlay:
      If it’s your first time connecting your iPhone to your car, the car’s display or infotainment system should prompt you to enable CarPlay. If not, you might need to go into your car’s settings menu to enable it.

      Unlock Your iPhone:
      Ensure that your iPhone is unlocked when you connect it to your car. This step is crucial, as some safety features require access to your phone while driving.

      Follow the On-Screen Instructions:
      Once you’ve successfully connected your iPhone, you’ll see the CarPlay interface on your car’s display. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

      Customize CarPlay:
      You can customize your CarPlay experience by arranging the apps on the CarPlay home screen, adding or removing apps, and adjusting settings. This can usually be done on both your iPhone and the car’s infotainment system.

      Enjoy CarPlay:
      With CarPlay set up, you can now enjoy the seamless integration of your iPhone with your car’s display. Use Siri or the car’s touchscreen controls to access navigation, music, messages, and other compatible apps.

      Remember that the specific steps and options may vary depending on your car’s make and model, so it’s a good idea to consult your car’s manual or contact the manufacturer for detailed instructions if you encounter any issues during the setup process.
