No, mine had issues, sometimes the CR-V would find CarPlay when I plugged in the phone and sometimes it didn't. For me it didn't matter if it was plugged in before or after I started the vehicle. When it didn't recognize a phone was attached, I would need to unlock my phone, then the system would see the iPhone and start CarPlay.Did it not recognize the iPhone after starting the CRV? Mine works fine as long as I plug it in after starting and the head unit has booted up.
Yes, I understand where you're coming from. The CR-V is much more practical for those reasons you listed. If we could only have one vehicle, then the CR-V would be the obvious choice. Luckily, we don't live in a communist country and can own more than one vehicle.Thanks for the tip. I just made the change on my iPhone even though I havent had any issues with CarPlay in the 7 weeks I've owned the CR-V.
On another note.. when I was car shopping for a new daily driver a couple months ago it basically came down to '18 Accord 2.0 Touring vs '18 CRV EX-L. The CR-V won because it was cheaper, AWD + Hatchback + folding seats for flat cargo floor = makes it infinitely more practical.. and should have much less depreciation as the years rolled by now that Crossover/SUVs are outselling cars 2 to 1. And while I know made the right decision for my needs (and my family).. I still kinda wonder just how much more I would liked the Accord 2.0T with all bells, whistles and power! Seems like a really fun car to drive on a daily basis.
I see you have both the Accord and CR-V. Which vehicle is your favourite to drive and why?
