I have installed a PX6 10.4 with Android 8.1 in my 2004 Lexus GX470.  Everything seems to be working but a couple of things I would like to get clarification on;

 

1. I have two other cars in the family with Apple Car Play.  On both of these yo can still listen to the car radio with Apple Car Play going.  I can’t seem to find the settings to allow this on the PX6, is it possible? I’d like to listen to local radio while using Waze on Car Play.

 

2. The appears to be functionality for Wireless Apple Car Play. Every time I run the traps to set it up I am dead ended by the need for an activation code that is supposed to come from the Chinese messaging service?  Anyone successfully activated this?

 

TIA

If you are trying to use the Factory Radio as well as CarPlay on your PX6 it won't work as they are two different inputs.  If you are trying to use the PX6 Radio App, and CarPlay it won't work either due to android not letting both apps run at the same time as they both have audio.  The only real way to do this is to use CarPlay and an app like iHeartRadio, then you can listen to Z100 or something like that as well as get Turn by Turn or Siri prompts.

 

I do know what your saying though, as my Ford Sync3 lets you listen to both CarPlay and FM/XM/etc at the same time.  So for me the new PX6 unit that allows Sync3 to be integrated works perfect as I just continue to use CarPlay through Sync3, so I get the nice screen of the PX6 as well as all of my original functionality from my original head unit.

I have a 2013 f150 and zlink is asking for an authorization code , does anybody know this code or where I can get it because the CarPlay wont recognize my iPhone without it!
