I feel that I should have right of reply to this.alandoak wrote: ↑Mon Apr 05, 2021 10:32 amThanks for the reply, Blakey, but I struggle to understand why you'd post such a message in a forum designed for people to help each other. Did it occur to you that those of us who are, for example, pensioners might just struggle with more modern technology? I have no idea what CarPlay is and have no desire to find out at this stage of my life but what I do want from VW is a simple system that works efficiently. If VW put in USB slots then they should ensure that they work properly, don't you think? p.s. As an aside, this 67 year old refuses to stream as a matter of principle, preferring to support artists by actually buying cd's and then ripping them to .......USB sticks. Have a good day.
I am also knocking on the door of 60, in fact it opens for me next year. I also pay for my music, I have ripped my CD's, that I have bought over the years, (some to replace worn vinyl), to iTunes, now Apple Music. When I buy new music, I buy it direct from the musician and again, upload to my Apple music account. So please, do not assume that I, like the yoof of today, freeload choons. I have had iPhones since the days of the iPhone 3[s] because it enabled me to take my music with me wherever I go. Be that in a car, on a train, by bus or just walking. It seemed, at that time, a simple solution that has worked out well for me.
CarPlay is the simple connection between your mobile phone and the car. It is wireless and it enables you to use the infotainment system in a similar manner to your iPhone. It is very, very simple to use. It is a feature on a car I would not be without having used it.
I'm sorry you found my post so offencive, it certainly wasn't intended to be. I wish you luck in your quest.
