. . . and, I find no difference in CarPlay. Still has some re-connect problems.
I have cut these way down by putting the bike in ACC mode when I stop. All connections remain active. No, I don't leave it on ACC when we go to lunch, but gas, refreshments, bathroom-breaks, and stretch-breaks all are fine on ACC.
I agree that using ACC when you stop for gas is a good move. Makes getting underway a much quicker affair. Also make sure you use a quality cable. I have long favored Anker cables, but I killed two of them in the matter of weeks on my GW. I noticed the way the cable has to route was putting a lot of stress on both the cable as well as the connection to the phone. I switched to a cable with a 90 degree lightning connector and now it’s rock-solid reliable.
I found that how well CarPlay restarts after a power off/on cycle depends somewhat on the type/brand headset you're using. The old Sena 20's seem to work the best for this. The Cardo Packtalk Bold works about 80% of the time on power off/on cycle. I think it just depends on how quickly the headset establishes the connection to the bike. If the headset connects quickly, then CarPlay restarts just fine, but it if takes an extra few seconds, then you have to unplug and re-plug the phone connection to re-establish CarPlay. I've seen no change to the behaviour with the new July firmware loaded.
Went to view Fred's video on Vimeo. Went to where it says my purchases by clicking on my avatar in the upper right corner next to the search box. It says I have no purchases. If I try to view a video, I am asked to buy series again. Am I missing something? By the way, I kind of hate Vimeo. It is...
I noticed during the last couple of rides using CarPlay that it will just shut itself off occasionally for no apparent reason. It happens rarely but each time it requires re-plugging in the phone best done on the side of the road which means I should stop. Admittedly I did it a couple of times...
