I use the center console to connect Apple CarPlay every day. If yours doesn't work consistently it is likely a loose USB connection. I would make your dealer take it all apart and check every connection.

That is pretty much what I did "take it all apart and check every connection.", albeit in my driveway rather than taking it to the dealer.
Taking the HVAC controls out was the scariest part, the center console was easy :)
Keeping my fingers crossed that it's fixed :fingerscrossed:, to date the results have been good.

Pulling Dash apart/AC controls:
I didn't take any pics of it all part, I should have done :( I simply unplugged anything that looked USB , I marked up some the image from post #27 in this thread, and there are also white and black plugs on the back of the USB media port in the dash that I unplugged/reseated.

And yesterday, once again it died on me!
We drove out for about two hours, no issues, that driving back down from the mountains, poof, no more Car Play from the Center Console USB port :(

It happened to me a few times on my last little trip, but I unplugged it and plugged it back in and that fixed it for me.

I keep a USB jump drive in the 2nd USB port with 2900 +- songs on it for listening. I have not had any problems with the 2nd port at all.
240 gig ssd in the console USB port, 9000 plus songs - no problems whatsoever.
