    Does CarPlay come automatically or does it need activating?

    Hey guys, Should be picking up my 2016 T6 Highline in a week or so. Does anyone know if the satnav system/headunit comes with Apple CarPlay or is it an extra? Thanks in advance!;)

    Crackling AppAudio - Replacement head unit functionality?

    Audio Question for the hive mind! I have the ‘crackling’ issue when using Apple Carplay. The software build is current, and the SOS unit has just been replaced.

    Composition stereo unit - software upgrade?

    How easy is it to upgrade the software on the composition colour head unit? Van is a 2017 Kombi (not sure if that makes a difference). Mainly I’m trying to add the logos to the radio station. Plus any other benefits of updating the software. Has anyone done this?

    There are a bunch of threads on here with people reporting that USB CarPlay with their VW head units often disconnect.

    Carista CarPlay / Android Auto App?

    I had a thought yesterday whilst using Carista - if it had a CarPlay / Android Auto companion app, it could feasibly allow you to make a custom selection of readings / gauges to display on your head unit whilst driving. I emailed their customer service to suggest it. I was thinking that I’d...

    Using Apple CarPlay via bluetooth

    So my T6 is nearly 5 years old. Pretty much all the time I've had it, Applecar play has been a very unreliable feature of the van. Despite VW looking at it 3 or 4 times and once had its USB port replaced, its still no good. During this period I've had 3 different Ios phones. I've tried...

    T6.1 Infotainment phone / USB-C query

    Can you connect your ipod/iphone directly into the head unit via a USB/C lead and not rely on Bluetooth? If where is the socket, I only seem to have two USC charging points by the lower cupholder.

    IPhone Bluetooth cutting out and USB not working [Resolved]

    Hello, Probably on here already but I can’t find it ! My 2015 T6 Kombi plays music from my phone ok most of the time but I noticed it stops a lot when I’m on king journeys. Not sure if it’s because it’s plugged into charge on longer journeys. Do you think updating the VW head unit software...
