you sound very receptive to help & suggestionsI don't restart my phone unless it is needed. Why should I? If the unit can't handle the connection properly I shouldn't restart my phone - the manufacturer should fix his bugs.
But the unit - shouldn't be shut down every time the car is off?
I'm a SW engineer. Reboot sounds to me like a lazy solution to a bug that needs to be fixed.you sound very receptive to help & suggestions
Like BoostedV said, it's good to restart/reboot your phone every now and then. It resets the RAM, just like on a computer. I'm sure you've noticed that, if you leave your computer on for a long time, it gets slower. Once you've rebooted it, it tends to speed up as you get all the crap in the RAM out of there. Your phone and the head unit are both computers, plain and simple.

You do know that CarPlay is all in Apples court.. right? All the Honda HeadUnit does is provide the core interface to the CarPlay interface standard provided by Apple. The HeadUnit interfact It is a pretty low level software interface. The real brains (and disfunction) of CarPlay is all in the phone... and with so many different iOS release levels and generations of iPhones.. it's an ongoing problem. AND... people have been reporting issues with CarPlay, and their phones, and HeadUnits.. ALL over the industry... so this is not a Honda only issue per se.
Not true, at least in my experience. I have a 2018 Touring and it exhibited all these problems. Honda did a firmware update to the head unit and now.... CarPlay works perfectly above 45-50 mph (driving long distance all day), but the head unit goes black and disconnects from the phone under that speed regularly - every 5-10 minutes! Pulling the lightning cable out and re-inserting usually fixes it now, but it did not before the firmware update. My wife bought a 2019 RAV4 XLE a few months ago - ZERO problems with CarPlay with either of our iPhone 8’s. This is ALL on Honda.You do know that CarPlay is all in Apples court.. right?
