    Apple Carplay Issues

    Just had dealer install Apple Carplay on my CX-5 this morning. Loving it so far except discovered when I tried to open Google Maps or WAZE all I got was a blank screen, no roads. Playing around with it at home discovered I have to have Google Maps or WAZE open on my iPhone before connecting to Carplay for the app to display correctly. Anyone else discovered any other issues ????

    I saw someone on the cx5 club fb page saying they couldn't use the touch screen with Waze even when the car is stopped.

    Just had it installed Iíll have to try those things. But working good here so far. Like that the shortcuts work but itíd be cool if I could bind NAV to Waze.

    I have had CarPlay in my Mercedes for a while and only recently did Apple allow access to WAZE. Yes, you have to open WAZE on the phone, you can have the phone already connected before and the car's screen is only a mirror image of the phone. I still find it better than Mercedes' app. Good luck

    Things like this are why car companies are kind of leery of CP and AA. Issues are often with that system and not the car's but customers don't care and blame the car.

    I had issues with the SiriusXM app being a black screen. I deleted the app and reinstalled it and now it works.

    I donít have any issues with WAZE. I installed the touchscreen while moving tweak from AIO 2.8.1 and that greatly enhances the system since the touchscreen works all the time now.

    Apple Car Play

    Hello,

    I purchased my first Mazda yesterday. I previously had a BMW but fell in love with the Mazda. My only condition was that it must have CarPlay. Well, as of yesterday, the dealer was able to install it in the 2018. For those waiting, it is now here.

    Opened the thread now and merged one that appeared in "Lounge" now that the AA/ACP has rolled out officially as dealer install...

    Got the upgrade for my 2016 CX5 - had a $40 coupon for the service center closest to me so it cost $360. So far so good - noticed the Infotainment version is 70.00.100A.

    The only few annoyances are:

    - Apple Maps colors look washed out on the Mazda screen. I guess too many light colors and color coded place names and very little black or dark colors for things that should stand out. Anyone else have this problem? Any way to change the colors?

    - Apple Maps wont display the speed limit while just driving. It does display the limit while giving guidance but wont mark it in red or anything if you exceed the limit. Is there any way to get it to always show the limit? And to warn when going over the limit?

    CX-5 Android Auto / Apple CarPlay

    Does anyone know if both ports have the upgraded charging output or only the one marked as smartphone for mirroring? I asked the guy at the dealer and he said he thought it was just the mirror port but didnít sound confident. I guess it wouldnít surprise me but seems kinda silly given the output is higher on the back seat ports.

    Hi everyone. Just registered now to ask this question, I bought my 2018 CX-5 GT at the start of this month, certified pre-owned. And I learned a week ago that there will be support for AA. Am I eligible for free upgrade? Or will I still be paying for that?
