Just traded a 19 scat on a 18 hellcat. Does the 2018 hellcat have car play?

I plug my phone in, it charges, connects as a USB device, but the bottom right phone icon on the screen doesn't flip over to car play. For the life of me cant get it to work, starting to think, does the 2018 NOT have car play? I've tried 3 different cords(one being apple). Pull the fuses, even pulled the negative cable for 3 hours. Still no car play.

any incite?

I presume you have the app downloaded on your phone... If so, does your phone display an error code like "communication error 8" or anything?

I do have the app installed never use it though. Usually I plug phone in and goes right into Android Auto.

sometimes mine won't automatically launch CarPlay. I have to go to the apps on the center screen and tap the CarPlay icon for it to connect.

Unlock your iPhone before connecting the cable. CarPlay would not work on my 2018 Hellcat until I found out about unlocking the iPhone. My car has the same behavior described here when the iPhone is connected while locked... no CarPlay icon or functionality.

Hi,

I would be happy to look into this for you. Please send us a private message with your VIN.

First year for CarPlay and Android Auto was 2017 and it was standard equipment on all SRT and Hellcats.
