Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. I'm using an OEM apple charging cable with my iphone 8 to use carplay on my 2020 mdx. Works great, but when I plug in my wife's iPhone 11 Pro it does not work. Her phone charges, but the car play does not connect. Appreciate any help!

There are numerous posts on this subject. The issue is compatability. What IOS version do you have on your I8?

I was unable to find posts on this. The iphone 8 has ios 14.3. The issue has been present for numerous software updates on the 11 pro so guess was the issue was hardware related. Thanks for the help!

Make sure under apple CarPlay pairing setting, the iPhone 11 is set to always enable. It might be for some reason it is disabled by accident.

I get stuck here when I try to access carplay settings. I don't think the mdx supports wireless carplay. Maybe the 11 pro only supports wireless and not wired?

Third Gen MDX doesn't support wireless carplay.

What I mean is once iPhone connects to cable, click on "Settings -> (Scroll down to) Smartphone Settings -> Apple CarPlay Device List". Check if iPhone 11 is listed, if yes, click into it and make sure it is set to ENABLE.
