    I just bought a new 2016 VW Passat and here's what I'm running into (2 issues):

    Issue 1:
    - I have phone plugged into USB, enabling carplay
    - I am playing music through the car's own radio
    - Phone call comes through carplay
    - When call is over, the stereo doesn't recognize that call has ended so I can't get volume on the radio, even after turning device on/off. Anyone else run into this? It feels like a bug

    Issue 2:
    - Playing Pandora through Carplay
    - I receive phone call, it does not mute the Pandora so I have both Pandora and phone call simultaneously (HUGE aggravation)
    - I also ran into this with the Apple Maps - usually if you're playing music and another app starts providing audio (like the apple maps voice) it will lower or mute the radio/Pandora. It doesn't seem like the connectivity is working correctly.

    Like I said, my car is brand new so I don't know if these are known bugs that will need to be worked out by Apple or some issue with VW? Any insight would be appreciated.

    I don't have the "CarPlay" feature in my car, but hopefully someone who does will be along to answer your question soon.

    I am having a similar issue, but no thoughts on how to solve it.
    i.e. Sometimes when I plug my iPhone 6s into my Pioneer unit with CarPlay, MyMusic cannot be heard - I can play with the volume and mute controls on the Pioneer unit and/or the iPhone without successfuly restoring the sound of MyMusic, I can even unplug the iPhone and MyMusic still cannot be heard (on the iPhone) - I usually have to restart the iPhone to get it working again.
    Any ideas out there?
