When we got our 2019 Pacifica Limited back in May I was able to connect with CarPlay. I haven’t used it since and now I cannot connect. My iPhone-5 doesn’t detect the car’s Uconnect. Any ideas/suggestions?.

Let me try another question. Is anybody able to connect to Uconnect and use Carplay with the latest Apple IOS and Uconnect version?

As far as I know, Carplay only works in iPhones if they are connected via USB using the top USB port in your dashboard.

I have used CarPlay with the latest iPhone Xs and iPhone 8s without an issue other than it losing the connection on occasion requiring me to dis-reconnect it to that USB port. There still seem to be quite a few bugs remaining on the current UConnect software, but it does seem to be better than previous revs. For comparison my spouse's 2015 Mercedes works almost flawlessly.

CarPlay is finicky about the cable used to connect. Try a different one and see what happens. Does the phone show the battery charging icon when you plug it in? There have been a few instances of the USB port coming disconnected from the head unit under the dash. And you are unlocking the iPhone when it is plugged into the car, yes?

I finally got both our iPhone-X and iPhone-5 working with Uconnect and Carplay. I believe the issue was as ‘citanic’ mentioned regarding using the USB port in the top part of the dashboard. I was connecting to the floor USB port (doh!) on our 2019 Pacifica Limited. Worked really well on our 1700 mile trip. The only glitch was with the iPhone-5 where the navigation app Waze would close about every hour for no reason I could identify. Fortunately just restarting the app would resume where it closed.

Thanks for the replies!
