One annoyance I've found is if you plug the phone into the center console port, which is powered when the Jeep is off, then when you turn on the Jeep it doesn't recognize it as CarPlay. If you unplug/re-plug it after the Jeep starts up, it will recognize it as CarPlay. Anyone else notice this? I may try a different power outliet which is not still powered when the Jeep is off.
I'm having the same issue

While there are cheap cables out there, this is nothing more than hype to get you to buy the OEM cables. Any MFi-certified cable should be fine, just make sure it isn’t damaged. I bought the Anker Powerline+ cables (in red) and they work just fine.
Funny... I use the Anker red cable, too... I made the mistake of looking on the thread about 'seeing red.'

Agreed. I use Anker cables as well. Great cables and great customer service. I have 8 of there cables but 1 recently went bad. They had a new cable shipped to me within a couple days

I just noticed Google Maps on my 2nd screen of Apple CarPlay. What a relief! I like how you can elect to view satellite images as well and it looks great on the uConnect screen (with a good data connection, of course).

My CarPlay still hasn't updated to OS 12. Do you have to do something specific for it to update? I can't wait to see waze on there! Thx

CarPlay won’t update. You update your phone to iOS 12 and you’ll have access to the updated features.

Thank you! Just read in another thread how I needed to actually update the Waze app for it to show up. That worked. Thanks again!

My iPhone X won’t even launch CarPlay it is charging so the cable is functional
I have the same problem. CarPlay only works if I plug the phone in BEFORE starting the engine / radio. Once it has been started, no luck.

I am on the smaller uConnect, iPhone X, iOS 12. Half the time it works, half the time it doesn't. Replaced the cable, still no dice.

I'm sure there is some special dance I'll figure out to get it to work.

Clean out the lightning port of your iPhone. Use a can of compressed air to blow it out or a toothpick to dig out any debris. You can get A LOT of lint in there and it leads to the intermittent problems you're talking about.

Thanks. I'll give it a shot!
