How to enable Apple CarPlay 

Fortunately, connecting to CarPlay is pretty easy since your iPhone will help you with the process. If your phone is paired with Uconnect, you can access CarPlay through the Wi-Fi option or plug your iPhone directly into the Uconnect using a USB or Lightning cord. Follow a couple of steps to set things up:
  1. Make sure both your car and phone are on.
  2. Check your iPhone settings to make sure both Siri and CarPlay are on.
  3. Connect the phone to the CarPlay device using a USB cord/Lightning cable, or make sure the Wi-Fi recognizes your Uconnect.
  4. The CarPlay icon should pop up on your Uconnect device, or you can ask Siri for what you need.
  5. Your phone might ask if you want to enable CarPlay if the device is locked, so be sure to confirm “yes.”
And that’s it! It probably took you longer to find your USB cord than to set up CarPlay! You can now use CarPlay to navigate, listen to your music, make calls, or any of the many options available.
