Apple Car Play - autoplay

Post by Daws4137 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:43 pm

Just some help and not a moan ......

When I plug in my iPhone it seems to be a real faff having to wait for in control app to fire up to acknowledge the iPhone is connected , then exit it that and then swipe from the home screen across to launch ACP. It then exits in control app and ACP appears ( most of the time ) . My Ford Kuga automatically launches ACP straight away when plugged in.

Am I missing a trick here , is there a way for ACP to ‘auto-launch’ when connected via USB.

Cheers.

You can set incontrol apps not to auto launch but not sure about ACP as I haven’t got it yet.

You can set it to default to auto launch ACP when the phone is connected

Go to settings and connectivity, then Apple CarPlay.

Should have an option to select auto launch.

Awaiting delivery of my Velar and never used ACP before.. do I need to physically connect my phone via cable to the car in order for it to communicate with ACP? Can it not be done wirelessly/bluetooth etc?
