Has anybody used Apple Car Play? Is this a one time issue?
It happens on occasion (both in my ID4 and previously in my GTI via wired CarPlay).

I haven't determined the cause or remedy, yet. I usually resolve it by turning my phone completely off, the car off, or sometimes removing the vehicle from the phone's bluetooth settings and re-pairing.

You can connect to CarPlay quite easily through a USB cable.

You can also connect via Bluetooth and WiFi. I ran in to trouble because I was connected by Bluetooth, but not to the car's WiFi network.

Good luck!
I resolved my connection issues by holding down the infotainment power button until the headunit rebooted and that fixed it.

THANK YOU! We thought we had tried everything to get CarPlay to work again and your fix was the winner!!
When in doubt, reboot something!

I use both wireless carplay and wireless android auto. I let the car pick which ever it feels like connecting to.
