hopefully someone can help me with this as it’s driving me nuts,
i picked up my new RS on Sunday and straight away connected my iPhone 7 via Bluetooth, it downloaded my contacts and I can make calls and play my music.
today I decided to try out Apple CarPlay, I plugged in my usb cable in to the port under the arm rest and the other end to my phone and waited for the on screen instructions , but nothing came up, the sync3 does not recognize the iPhone as being connected, I tried the other port below the dash but still nothing.
As rates is not far from me I popped in there and asked and some guy came out to have a look, he did say he didn’t know much about the sync system but he tried all he could, he even tried his phone which was an iPhone 6 but still nothing.
the have booked the car in for Friday but I’m wondering if it’s just something simple that I’m missing, I don’t have Siri enabled on my phone as it was eating my battery, could it be that ?
It took a week to come it they said it was on back order . They thought it was the usb hub in in the arm rest they changed that as well. It went in for the third time and all was fixed after they changed APIM module and usb hub, just make sure they don’t damage the dash to get it out, just a heads up on that
Does anyone know if you can use Ford nav with Apple play active. You have the option in apple car play to switch to sync but you can’t use the ford sync nav. Also seems you can’t just charge your phone without Apple car play coming up. Bit annoying, unless I’m missing trick
this is what they changed in my car as well as the APIM module check it to your one its int the arm rest get a old credit card a put it in the side and it will pop out it will not mark it at it comes out
