Apple Car Play - wireless

Post by melymalu » Thu Mar 07, 2019 10:45 pm

Can you use Apple Car Play when the iPhone is placed on the in car wireless charging mat or does it always need to be plugged in via the USB port?

So far as I know, and I use, Apple Play (and Android) requires a USB connection to activate the software and the voice operated commands. So, unfortunately, I have to have a slightly messy white cable hanging around. But I could be wrong !

Ok that’s useful to know. I assume though you don’t need the phone plugged in to use the Bluetooth phone calls?

That's correct, bluetooth does not require the phone to be connected.
