One cable for both Android Auto and Carplay?

Anyone have recommendation? Currently I'm using a Spigen 3-in-1 cable with Lightning and USBC. It's working perfectly with Android Auto but it keeps disconnecting with Carplay at short intervals or when hitting some bumps.

I tried 2 different 3-in-1 cables and also tested on a iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 11 with the same result. No problem with the Apple cable.

Anyone used any 3-in-1 cables that are flawless for both Android Auto and Carplay?

I have no experience with the 3-in-1 cables, but have you considered a USB splitter instead? That way you could just use a USB-C cable and a Lightning cable. Something like this?

I don't know if it supports AA/ACP, but it does say its designed to work for PC and Mac.

Upon closer investigation my Spigen 3-in-1 cable's lightning adapter is rather loose compared to the USBC head. I think that was the issue...going to try another 3-in-1 cable.
