Hi all. Instead of creating a new thread, I'll piggyback off this one for my question and try to even explain this correctly for you guys.
I put the AVH-4100NEX in my car and love it so far. The biggest annoyance of it for me brings me to this thread.
My setup is I want to use Apply CarPlay for my iPhone 6S Plus and also play the music on my phone while driving. For this, I plug my phone in to the lightning cable hooked up to the radio.
My annoyance: 9 times out of 10 when I get into my car, start it up, and plug my phone into the lightning cable to the radio, it will start playing the music.... cut out for a second... then it says Device Not Found. It kinda reboots in the sense of the plugging in sequence, not the whole head unit. When it restarts the music app, it will be playing the music (time on song is playing) but there is no audio. I have to then unplug my phone / re-plug it in several times for it to begin playing music again.
I honestly think this is an issue of Apple CarPlay trying to run vs. the music app within the head unit trying to run.
Does anyone know a way around this. IE: What is the sequence for me to avoid this? IE: Unlock phone then plug in, Hit ok then plug in phone then unlock, etc. I hate this.
