Has anyone been experiencing issues with CarPlay? Either doesnt auto connect consistently or when it does, Sri is always saying, "on it" or "one sec."

Never had these issues prior to my K5. Suggestions welcome and thanks!

I seem to always have this issue. End up having to delete my phone from my car settings and reconnect it completely. That works every time but still really annoying.

Yes. Definitely a Kia issue. Beyond annoying......
Fought with Kia since purchase in Jan. Kia claimed Apple -Apple Claimed didn’t know of issue. Conf called Kia who said Apple knows of issue-got Apple on call they said knew of no issues! Act Apple tech said he just bought a VW and has no issue!!!! I’ve heard everything from apple update caused issue to Kia knew of issue let dealers know but mgt didn’t let sales know! Finally 3 weeks ago Kia updated “they said the apple update fix” worked a lot better until this week! Horrible now constantly disconnects, extremely dangerous when using map in rush hour traffic while traveling and it just disconnects! Going to investigate legal remedies now! It’s total BS on Kia’s behalf!!

On a side note my Android Auto audio will start to disconnect at random times, typically after like 20 minutes of driving. I'll get rapid in and out cutting like I'm losing signal until I forcefully disconnect my phone, it's at random times as well. I brought my car to Kia service center last week and they told me no head unit firmware updates were available. Hopefully they release an update at some point... This is KIA's problem, they need to fix it but they choose to ignore it. The car is having issues doing phone projection for android auto and apple car play, which is done by tapping into the Wifi connection on your phone and the car.

Took our K5 in for service just yesterday 7/3/21 and asked for an infotainment update. Wireless CarPlay working perfectly now.

I’m finding it annoying when I’m listening to radio and it switches to Spotify randomly! I’ll close Spotify on phone and it still connects randomly

I know there's a settings in Android Auto to disable Auto resume media from the Infotainment screen. Unchecking this setting would allow whatever is currently playing (i.e., SiriusXM, Radio, etc.) to stay playing even after the Android Auto reconnects. Maybe there's a similar setting for Carplay?

Hey….just tripped on this forum looking for the lighter fuse size. Figured I’d search the apple car play issue that has been driving be F’n nuts and has nearly killed me a few times. Still no GD solution best I see :/

anyway..I know it’s been some time and you probably Found this already, but what I do is toggle off / on CarPlay in settings. I always have settings open now so it’s quick.

Settings > general > Car Play > Kia Motors (or how you named it)

just toggle it off then on again after 1-2 seconds.

you’ll see the display show iPhone connected in couple seconds 90% of time.5% of time I do that again. The remaining cases require using theinfo center set up button > device connection > Phone projection, etc. I’m sure you’re a pro with this menu.
Peace.

Yes same here. Had the Optima for 3 yrs and never once disconnected. First thought it happened when we hit a bump, but began to realize it’s all the time.

Had this issue as soon as I purchased the car. Took it to the dealership who did a software update and the system worked for the last year. Now it’s not working again. It isn’t an Apple issue. This is our third Kia and the other two work perfectly with the exact same phone.
