Carplay not connecting wireless to iphone 8 plus

Recommended Posts

Since last week my iphone 8 plus will not connect to the 2021 Chevy Tahoe carplay.  I am able to connect hard wried in with a cable.  I have tried other iphones in the house 13 and 12 and all will not connect wireless.  Is anyone else having this issue and have any idea's how to fix it.

My 2021 Suburban does the same thing.

My solution to connect wirelessly is to have the phone connect to the vehicle WiFi.  Then, CarPlay works wirelessly.

I don't have any data service for my vehicle WiFi so, when it connects, it says something like "in low data mode" but it works.

Unfortunately, you have to go through this process every time you get into the car.

I have rented other new vehicles (e.g. Ford) and CarPlay worked wirelessly every time with zero effort on my part.

I don't know why GM can't seem to get this right.
