Sounds silly, But connect via bluetooth, press the I for informations in the bluetooth menu,on the car connection,set the notifications on, And then connect it via cable, Because it might be the trick to use Apple CarPlay. When the notifications are Off, the Damn iPhone will Block the connection. Cheers
Well, I tried. Such a bugger to have a new car problem. If mine, when it arrives starts to do crazy things like this, I will go a-wall. Cheer up, close the phone, put in sport and listen to the music of the RS 🙂
I think maybe when you had your problem fords hadn’t had that many go wrong so they authorized the replacement module at a cost to fords of around £550, but it seems since then they have had a lot of reports of this same fault and have now stopped authorizing replacements while they look for a software fix. I guess a few a £550 a pop is ok but if the numbers are now loads it would cost them a lot to replace.
Fords have said there will be a software fix around the end of august, they did say there was a part they could replace which would involve removing part of the dash, but this only had a 10% chance of fixing it.
Iv decided to wait for the software fix as I’m really OCD about rattles in the car and if they take the dash apart there is always a chance of getting a rattle behind it which I really don’t want.
Strange thing is on a couple of occasions it’s suddenly started working and iv had CarPlay until I turn off and then it’s gone again, but using it for that short time I’m not sure I’d really bother with it anyway.
Just my experience on the Carplay issue… I remember when I picked the car up in April, I tried it and my phone didn’t work (iPhone 6), I tried the salesman’s one (iPhone 7) and his worked no problems in the car.
I checked the system settings of the mobiles, I was running IOS 9.x and he had IOS 10.x… I tried several other iPhones (through friends & family – mix of 6s/7) and the newer IOS is what works with Sync 3 connectivity I found.
I am not sure if that is the issue for you, have you checked your device settings to rule it out or tried another iPhone – from the sounds of it you probably have been through that exercise?
Hey! Picked my RS up last night and having the same problem. I was really looking forward to the Apple Car play! Mine does nothing when plugging it in too! Im running V2.2 and the update thing on there just keep spinning. Has an update come out yet?
