One of the main features they offer is CarPlay. What exactly is it? CarPlay is a feature that allows you to connect your phone to your car’s entertainment system. You can use your phone to listen to music, make calls, send messages, and do many other things. It is a very convenient feature for drivers who want to use their phones while driving.

In this article, we will discuss how to fix the problem of Hyundai Palisade CarPlay not working. Here are some possible issues and solutions you should consider:

Make sure the charging cable is attached properly

If you have a model that is equipped with CarPlay but the screen does not show up on your car’s screen when plugged in, then it may be because the charging cable is not properly connected.

To check whether this is the case or not, simply remove the plug from your phone and look at it closely with a flashlight. If there are signs of damage or cracks on it, then this means that the cable has been damaged somehow and needs to be replaced before you can use it again.

Look for updates on your phone

Your smartphone should also be updated with new software in order for all features of CarPlay to work properly on it as well as every other app installed on it. This can be done through the Settings menu on your phone. If it is not updated to the latest version, then it may be preventing your CarPlay from properly working on your phone.

Make sure your smartphone is compatible

Your smartphone must be compatible with CarPlay. Furthermore, if you think that you can use all your iPhone apps while driving your Hyundai Palisade with Carplay, you are wrong. When it comes to compatible apps, there are only a few options, and you must live with restrictions, especially with messenger apps.

Messaging apps usually need to be controlled by using Siri. So you cannot see the history of all the messages that you have sent, for one. You can only have new messages read out to you, and you can dictate some messages to yourself. Other apps that are compatible include Spotify, Waze, Audible, and Google Maps.

Enable CarPlay on your vehicle and your smartphone

The first step is to enable CarPlay on your vehicle. You will have to go into the settings menu on your Hyundai Palisade and look for CarPlay. If you are using an iPhone, then you should use the “CarPlay” feature on your phone. You should also make sure the “Enable CarPlay Feature” button is checked. This way, it will be able to recognize the data that you input when you press a button on your steering wheel.
