I'm curious if it alleviated any of the lag/sync that exists when using XM or any audio source if you start the car?

@RLCarrington Would you mind testing something out? Just connect your iPhone to your CarPlay port and then start the car. Curious to see how long it takes for XM or any radio source to start.

Even at the 70.00.367, mine takes awhile and sometimes require that I unplug my phone from CarPlay in order to get XM to "kick in".

And I will eat my plate of crow, as I assumed this wouldn't work for any MY < 2021.

I no longer have Sirius/XM active so I unfortunately cannot check that specifically. Pandora within CP starts up almost immediately but it always did for me.

I have noticed that music starts playing a bit faster and reliably via my existing iOS Shortcut to automatically start a playlist via CarPlay. Previously, I had issues occasionally (maybe every 3-4 uses) where the phone would show that Shortcut being activated but the vehicle itself didn't actually bring up CP or start playing the music. I'd have to disconnect and reconnect the phone to get things working.

Has anyone enabled their touch screen previously while vehicle is moving and did it persist after update?

I used the debug screen on firmware 55.x to enable touch screen, then updated to 70.x and it persisted, so just wondering about 74.x ...

Thanks. I’ll give the update a go tomorrow. Certainly couldn’t hurt.

Curious....did you get a chance to install it and what changes do you see if anything?

I actually didn't install it yet because I wasn't sure if it was going to keep my touch screen operational while vehicle is moving setting 🙂

It wasn't done with aio so I hope or does ...

Took the plunge, 1st self install. All went well. Maybe it's placebo but the system seems faster to load and respond.

Just updated from 70.00.367A.
Android Auto apps appear 'zoomed in'. Google Maps and Spotify were all I tested.

Other - Radio maybe starts sooner. Disclaimer maybe goes away sooner.

Saw that there is version 74.00.230A available for the CX-5. I haven't seen any posts about this version, has anyone tried it? I have a 2019 sig, and from what I can tell it looks like it should be compatible.

Updated and changed phones from a moto g power to pixel 4a XL and it works now. Connects faster.
 
Updated to the new firmware and although startup is noticeably faster, my CarPlay now has trouble connecting. It worked fine during my first use on the new firmware. The next time I got into the car and plugged my phone in, I received no carplay error message. After I reset the infotainment system, it said CarPlay wasn’t responding and I need to stop my vehicle before reconnecting (my car never left the driveway). After disconnecting and connecting once more, CarPlay finally worked. I unplugged and plugged in again, nothing. No error message. Nothing. Reset infotainment again, reconnected. CarPlay works again.

Anyone else having a similar issue? No there isn’t any lint in my USB port. My USB ports were replaced end of 2021 at the dealership and I have not experienced any issues prior to the update.

What version of IOS are you using? I had a similar problem when updating to 14.5. Seems to have gone away 🤞🏻Now that I’m at 14.5.1. (I’m running and old version of the Mazda system - 3 years old?
