Apple’s CarPlay is still disappointingly basic.
At Stephen Hackett 512 pixels blogged about the frustrations of migrating to a new iPhone and not keeping up with his CarPlay preferences, despite copying every other app on his phone perfectly.
I’m with him, but I’m more annoyed by the second point he highlights: CarPlay still treats each vehicle you connect to as a different thing. Instead of saving your preferences when you plug in a different car, it forces you to set everything up again for each new vehicle. This can be annoying for families with more than one car; This is especially crazy for those who frequently use rental cars. Seems like a simple thing to fix!
