    with more features coming to carplay with iOS 13, i think it would be worth it. i would have gotten a stock option if i had a choice.

    There's an option to update in the app itself, just don't connect your phone yet.

    ^ Can't wait! But I hope the dongle will still work on iOS 13 though

    I just got a Ford Ranger with CarPlay and I can definitely say it's worth it. It's one of those things that once you experience it, you just got to have it, IMO.

    That’s one thing I didn’t get with the 2017 Ranger. And now the new iterations have CarPlay. So is the 2019 Honda Odyssey which I am actually considering as replacement to the rather tall Ford truck, which has native CarPlay already on board.

    The refreshed 2019 Honda BR-V also sports a CarPlay head unit as well as back up camera. Honda said CarPlay is one of the most requested feature. As mentioned above Mazda is also offering the upgrade for older models (2, 3, 6, CX5, CX3) for PHP 17,500.00

    I'm also happy to see that this feature is trickling down to affordable cars. TOTL Kia Soluto filling in the Void Honda City/Toyota Vios left @ PHP 700k comes with CarPlay head unit. Hyundai's same-body competitor, Reina, only sports a 2-DIN head unit.

    Toyota, who opposed CarPlay/Android Auto due to safety concerns are now integrating it to new models. They missed out the obvious point that Apple can upgrade the software to address any safety issues with the UI/UX.

    The new CarPlay looks better when shown on a wider display *ehem* Benz/BMW. My Civic looks so cluttered when I switch to the Glance view but I love that you can navigate your phone while keeping the app you are using on-display.
    *fingers crossed waze is supported in the maps section of glance view*

    Also, Glance view is not available for iPhone 6s and older. This might be due to RAM limitations.

    The dongle I bought from Lazada a few months ago works with Carplay / iOS 13.

    CarPlay is really a game-changer. It's a deal-breaker for me when buying a new car.

    Yes, I am on Android. I needed to use my iPhone as a hotspot to the HU in order to have an internet connection, the way I used to do before I had the dongle. The app will download the update when requested.

    I'll try to take photos of the available options in the app.
