Although the Hyundai Tucson is quite safe, it can sometimes malfunction and you will have to look for reliable places for help. For instance, the Hyundai Tucson comes with an infotainment system for controlling your audio and entertainment as well as navigation, which includes CarPlay. If you find that CarPlay does not work, you can get some assistance from this article.

Make sure your smartphone is compatible and enables CarPlay

If you have an iPhone and you want to use CarPlay, then you will need to make sure that your smartphone is compatible with the system. To do this, you can check your iPhone’s settings to see if CarPlay is enabled. You can also search for “CarPlay” on the App Store or Google Play Store.

Check the USB port and cable

If you are using an iPhone with CarPlay, then you should make sure that the USB port and cable are in good condition. The USB port is used to connect your iPhone to your car’s infotainment system.

You should also check whether the cables are broken or damaged as this could be the cause of CarPlay not working. You can try switching the USB cable with another one to see if CarPlay works fine then. If it does, then the issue lies in the USB cable. If it doesn’t, then it may be the USB port or something else entirely.

Check for a software update

Another possibility is that your CarPlay system or the app on your smartphone has not yet been updated to its most recent version. To check for an update, you can search for “CarPlay” on the App Store or Google Play Store.

Check if an application is obstructing your connection

There may be an application that is interfering with your connection. For example, if you are using the CarPlay system in your Hyundai Tucson and it is not working, then you should check whether an application is obstructing your connection. You can try to delete any apps that you have recently installed in your smartphone to see if this resolves the issue.

Try to reset the CarPlay

You can also try to reset the CarPlay system in your Hyundai Tucson. You can do so on the touch screen itself, for one. If the screen has frozen, though, you would need to do this manually. You can likely find a reset button somewhere on the dashboard. Press down on that for a couple of seconds until the system resets.

Look for a service center

If none of these solutions work for you, then you should take your Hyundai Tucson to a specialist such as an auto repair shop that specializes in vehicles of this type. It is likely they can help resolve any issues found on your CarPlay.
