CarPlay issue fixed.

2616 10
Probably the only issue I've experienced on both my 2017 CR-V and 2018 Accord is that sometimes the infotainment system didn't recognize when I plugged in my iPhone. I saw on another thread that they resolved this by changing a setting on their iPhone, and because that fix worked for me, I thought it deserved it's own thread.

If your system doesn't recognize your iPhone unless you first unlock your phone, make this change in your phone:

1) Go to SETTINGS
2) Go to FACETIME & PASSCODE (this may be a different name on older iPhones)
3) Scroll down and turn on "USB Accessories"

Done.

Hope this helps others that are also annoyed when the infotainment system doesn't recognize their phone. Since I made the change to the settings, my iPhone has worked flawlessly in both of my cars that have CarPlay.

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?
