USB-C?I haven’t had issues with CarPlay disconnecting with new cables I know you said it’s not the cables but are you sure? I remember trying to restore a phone from a computer with a lighting cable but I don’t think it was “MiFi” certified. It kept failing every time I was getting frustrated. I then tried a genuine Apple cable and it worked flawlessly. Apple does something with its cables so you can keep buying theirs or licensed versions. I also had a cable that charged fine but disconnected from CarPlay. I do have the mic low volume problem. I never used CarPlay before but it’s easier for me while listen to podcasts which is why I’ve been using it more but I find I have to disconnect it when making or receiving phone calls. I’ve been using Amazon branded or Anker cables without problem lately.
This actually works a bit better. But the wireless charger is in a cumbersome spot, and you can't use Carplay. Carplay is actually really good for navigation (I use google maps).Have you tried Bluetooth and wireless charging? I think it works pretty darn nice, never had a issue with low mic volume. I've never tried it plugged into a USB.
I prefer Google maps as well, I set it up on my phone and the turn by turn comes thru the truck speakers via Bluetooth. I'll admit it's not an entirely hands free process.... I haven't had a truck with this much technology in a little while and I'm set in my old ways.This actually works a bit better.
