I may have solved my problem.

I initially used a non certified Apple cable and had the flickering/freezing problem, after switching to an Apple certified (MFI) cable I have not had any problems for the last week.
I sure hope that this has solved my problem for good.

Current Vehicle:
Honda Civic 1.5 Turbo Executive (European model)

Keep us up to date on the OEM cable, If it seems to be a legit requirement for Apple products we will sticky it as a fix.

Still no problems here after switching to the original Apple cable.
Has anyone else tried this?

I've had this problem several times and I have had the head end unit replaced twice as there is a honda TSB for this issue that calls for replacement. The problem seems to always return.While it may seem ridiculous, I do believe the problem is related to using an iPhone and the problem has been Better/worse with varying versions of iOS. I believe I have found the root of the issue. I have a really large music library and if i turn off the icloud music library all my problems seem to go away and never return until i turn it back on. The flickering screen is not my only issue. It is as if the infotainment system is trying to index all the songs on my phone and because the library is large it gets to a point where the memory fills up and causes the system to crash or become unresponsive in different ways. I believe the infotainment system is seeing my phone like any music device and is indexing all the songs so that you can use the native Honda system to play and search for music. Something about the icloud music library or a large library overloads the system. I had a similar problem in my ford vehicle. It couldn't handle large music libraries and also would crash if any of the song titles had certain special characters or perhaps a corrupt ID3tag. Ford released a tool to scan your itunes library and fix any issues and allowed for turning off indexing of music which solved the problems.

2018 Si. 500 miles and mine flickers and the screen blanks out regardless of Android, Apple or whatever cable is used.... happens without any device connected. I have recorded numerous videos documenting it so the dealer cant say they cannot replicate it
