    CarPlay is basically a display extension of your iPhone. Music can still run in the background and operated by Siri handsfree. I for one will enjoy using V1Driver on my 8” screen. I don’t like having my phone smacked up on my dash which would partially cover the screen.

    So I haven’t purchased my V1 yet and will of course buy V1Driver when I do. I just wanted to confirm whether or not it DOES work with CarPlay.

    V1Driver works as well as I think it can with CarPlay.

    Car Play with V1Driver running is my primary setup.

    You can view V1Driver only on the phone. And when you do, the Car will go to it’s home screen (while audio stream will continue). When you pull up an app on the Car Screen then the phone mirrors that app and V1Driver goes to back ground (and you’ll continue to hear B-Driver audio on the car).

    V1Driver will run perfectly fine in background.

    I just purchased V1Driver today to test it with CarPlay. It does not display on my dash

    Tell me what it would take to get you to allow V1Driver to display as a CarPlay app? In-app purchase? Ok, sold! I want your app to use my car’s screen...much rather see it there than on my Apple watch.

    It does NOT display on Car Screen. I stated it only displays on phone just 2 posts back.
    Sorry

    It doesn’t need to, to do 80% if it’s job.

    I am merely looking to have it on the car screen as a “concealed display” for the V1.

    Know what I mean? Since Bluetooth became a thing, it pretty much rendered V1’s concealed display useless.

    It would be nice. Use your influence with Apple to make it possible. Only they can relax the restrictions. As it now stands, Apple does not allow this desirable functionality.

    It’s funny though, you’ll have POS apps like iHeartRadio that are CarPlay enabled. But really useful apps like yours cannot.

    I’ve never jailbroken my iPhone before, anyone know how that works with CarPlay?

    If it's your primary phone running on latest iOS 11.3 I'd suggest not going down the Jail Break path. It's fine if your using a "retired" no active phone.

    Perhaps a lobbying campaign could be mounted to ask Apple to allow apps such as V1 Driver to work with CarPlay as a navigation app.

    I suspect if Waze failed V1Driver would. But they may look at Waze as competition. And we certainly would not want to be classified as a Navigation App or that would be competition as well.
    Keep in mind that even if V1Driver were on CarPlay it doesn't solve the "One Mirrored" App issue. And if V1Driver were on the display it would probably have to be way dumbed down/simplified to pass.

    One thing that I hope is, Notifications one day may show up on CarPlay. Probably not but I can hope.

    Keep in mind the Apple Watch is mostly a Remote Notification Window. They should treat the CarPlay Screen the same way. But I think, by design, they don't/won't because notifications lead to distracted driving.
    If you watched one of the last announcement shows last year they were showing off a black dead screen on the phone as a "feature".

    How about using Siri to give V1 Driver commands? Any hope they would allow that? Would be especially useful for crowd sourcing if that dream ever comes to pass.

    Commands via Siri are very limited right now. They need to be related to messaging, payments, ride booking or workouts and the app needs to be registered as such an app type and if you try to mis-register yourself you may not pass submission and it may be a setting that cannot be changed once released.

    It IS related to ride booking. Necessary to avoid riding a police cruiser to your booking.

    But technically it is an Anti-Booking, Anti-Payment, Anti-Workout app.

    Agree. Therefore it is related.
