Hi Djpfaff

The issue isn't so much google music not storing the music on my phone but sometimes not running under Android Auto. I like running it that way as it means I can pick my tracks using voice control rather than only playing predefined playlists or albums and skipping back and forth whilst driving.

Hi guys, reposting this here - trying to find out the version of the carplay update:

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=244
Could anyone that got their car updated please send a photo of their Settings->System Info->Version Info please?

Need it to prove to my dealer that this update actually exists and that I'm not imagining it :?

And maybe also a photo of the icon being there on the dashboard...

My Niro had the first service today after 15000 km. Navigation software was updated and now also includes Carplay. Works like a charm :-)

As I'm thinking of upgrading my phone, I wonder if anyone has positive user experience of Apple Carplay? I have got a Samsung Galaxy J5 at the moment, which runs Android Auto, but I have been so underwhelmed by Android Auto after the first couple of times of trying it that I haven't bothered since.

Is it worth me stretching the phone budget by a few £ per month to get an iPhone instead of an Android phone?

I was happy with it on a test drive (not an owner currently), but then I have all my music through Apple Music so I am very tied into the Apple stuff. Personally I didn’t use the Apple Maps as I was happy with Kia Nav & using the phone as a hotspot to get the live traffic. Apple CarPlay has Spotify if you subscribe to that for music. Beyond that and the ability to dictate messages & get them read out to you not sure what features you would want.
I am not an Android owner so I can’t comment on a comparison, but the interface for CarPlay is very clear so IMHO less distracting than a standard Bluetooth connection.

If you connect via CarPlay but use kia nav do you still get live traffic though? If you connect via WiFi you do
