Carplay works like a charm now

Took my car in for a few small things and the dealer did 2 "recall" things including a software upgrade. Wireless Carplay was sporadically working before and now it works flawlessly. Encourage all to go see their AD and get any software updates done.

Was the other recall item the replacement passenger seat sensor? If so how does the completed job look?

My Z4 went for its software upgrade in early Aug, which included the passenger seat pressure sensor replacement. If you have automatic headlights you may need to check that they still work after the update - mine did not, saying I had to subscribe for the privilege!!! Car went back to dealer to correct. The update solved the car play issues and added the “Caring Car” app. There is no aesthetic difference to the seat since the recall work.

I got my Software update done early August but did not get the passenger seat occupancy sensor replaced because it involved removing and stripping down the passenger seat. The dealer said it was a Technical Enhancement and not a Safety Recall, so it is not urgent. Waiting to hear how others get on and the appearance of the completed job before I go ahead and get the work done on my car.

I took delivery of my Z4 a few days ago, so I am assuming it’s fully up to date. However CarPlay is still an issue...

Mine has been a lot more stable since updating to iOS 13. Only time I've had an issue since was when the phone overheated in the charging tray.
