I wonder... are any other of the new cars that offer carplay having similar issues as well? Or is it just the civic? Might give a clearer answer to whether honda needs better tech testing or if Apple/android need to test they're software better.
So that could be the problem for some people.drivers will need at least an iPhone 5 and iOS 8.4.
Indeed, WAZE is pretty much neccessary these days. I'd like to have weather radar sometimes too.My main complaint is having to abandon Waze which has been a lifesaver navigating around traffic in the Seattle area. Apple maps is nowhere as useful for avoiding issues. Navigation, sure - but I wish Apple would allow other apps to integrate with car play. With my old 2003 Civic and an aftermarket sound system, I could use Bluetooth or USB connection and listen to podcasts, music, Pandora, make calls, text using Siri, etc. and have Waze running at the same time providing directions.
well apple is the lowest common denominator here. Apple is the one building products for the manufacturers, its Apple's job to be able to adopt to the needs of their clients (yes Honda is a client).I'm not convinced that it is Apple though. It could be that the auto maker's systems are just so weird taht its hard to clean them up to be compatible with CarPlay.
One of the reasons for their updates from what i believe is the fact they want to patch versions that people hack into (aka jailbreak), most of the inbetween updates are quite useless. All anyone really needs are the major ones. And then going back to a previous build isn't possible... on Android, i bet you can go back.Apple is the problem here. Even their mobile devices are full of bugs when they update their iOS so it's not just their car infotainment system. Android FTW!
