Crud. Okay, so either I'll find an Android phone mount and forego integration or move to iPhone. Ick. Why can't we all just get along (and support iOS and Android). Thanks for the info before I ordered the iPhone.The downside is that CarPlay kills the Bluetooth, so that you cannot get incoming calls from your Android going through the car stereo.
I use a deicated iPhone 7 permanently in my Boxster. It is a $20/month addition to my "Family Plan" and, except for all the Apple Carplay annoying bugs, works great. It stays charged and, although always very warm, from a hardware only perspective, presents no problems.I'm thinking of dedicating a used iPhone to work primarily as navigation and music source in my Boxster 718. Any drawbacks to doing this?
Good question. I use a Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth earpiece connected to my "real" iPhone XS that is always with me. It would be nice to not have to wear it but it is the only practical solution I have to fascilitate making and receiving calls. I could forward the XS number to the phone in the car but I would have to forward/unforward everytime I get in/out of the car and that easily exceeds the effort I am willing to go to to stay in touch. Since my Boxster is my daily driver it is a lot easier to just leave the earpiece on while I am driving. At high speed with the top open it is impossible to hear any telephone call voice through either system so I then just take the earpiece off and stay out of touch for however long I am driving. Surprisingly their is no associated anxiety staying out of touch. I am very tempted to buy the wireless Bluetooth adapter someone referenced elsewhere but its expense is too great for something I do not have confidence in.
