This deserves its own thread.
Here we can have conversations, report issues and fixes as iOS updates emerge.
Hopefully this will help owners have the most success using uConnect and avoid updates that are broken severely.
Are you using wired or wireless CarPlay?
I found no exact matches for this fault profile with ios12 problems. There is an extensive list of bugs however and people always blame the car first.
Warranty doesn’t cover connectivity issues, so worth looking at the phone first unless you’ve got deep pockets.
This is the closest conversation even if it’s the opposite issue. FWIW.
I’m using wired as it seems it’s the only way I can use CarPlay. I can use BT to make or take phone calls but wired is the only way I can use Apple maps. It’s not a big deal so I probably won’t pursue it. The reason it seems to be the van is that the van’s display indicates the volume has been reset although I realize that it could be a function that the phone controls.
Ok, I just updated to iOS 12.1.2 and experienced these issues for the first time.
Initially my Apple maps navigation was using a very generic computer voice and the volume was extremely loud. When I turned it down the next dictation was exactly the same loudness as the first.
This is was not the Siri voice.. it may have been the uConnect system voice but was very computerized.
Not being able to stand it I tried a bunch of things to no avail until I went to the extent of performing a DFU restore of the iOS.
Once my phone was all setup again and tried the apple maps it was fixed. However there are some new defects that remain in iOS 12.
My CarPlay text messaging is half from my phone and half from the car speakers.
The google Music app continually freezes transitioning from wifi to LTE. Requiring the cable to be disconnected and reconnected.
Siri launches and disappears. Requiring a second “Hey Siri”.
Siri launches but has no greeting and doesn’t mute radio.
Siri reports location services are not enabled when they are. This prevents queries like “where’s the closest coffee shop”
These where not an issue when I was on iOS 10.3.3, and the system worked flawless.
So yay for updates! Here’s to another “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke” scenario.
Why does apple have to go and change things that cause compatibility issues.
