Carmine has a Chevy Bolt with Apple CarPlay and every time he hits a bump, Carplay disconnects. What gives? Leo says that the only logical conclusion is a loose connection. But he can also check to see if there's lint in the lightning port. A little dust will cause a looser connection of the lightning connector. A little canned air should solve it. Also, try a different cable. Lightning cables can get damaged easily. The other side may be loose as well. Past that, it's a visit to the service department at Chevy.

John has a new car and it doesn't have a CD player. It has a USB plug instead, but the music just jumps all around. Leo says that most car makers expect you to keep your music organized and play it from the phone. John's Corvette uses Apple CarPlay so his iPhone will interface with it really easily and he can play all his music via the iOS Music app. He can just tell it to play an album and it will play it. Or he can even tell it to play with no pauses between tracks, shuffle, create playlists, genre, and more. It's wide open in terms of options.
Melissa is in the market for a new car and wants to sync her phone to it. Leo says that the trend for modern car design is that auto manufacturers are designing their entertainment systems around the phone, creating a portal, rather than a standard stereo system. That way, when she gets a newer phone, she'll get an upgrade of her system. Navigation from the phone also syncs into the car. Apple's CarPlay is available in over 100 different car models now.
