    we just got a new Buick that has CarPlay. How are you make your apps appear on the screen in the Buick? A friend of mine has his Pandora Spotify Apple Music app on the screen in the car

    Those 3rd-party apps have to be installed on your iPhone and be compatible with CarPlay. Once they are installed, they should appear on the screen once CarPlay is enabled therein.

    Do you have your iPhone plugged into your car via USB? In my experience CarPlay should be come up as soon as you make the USB connection. Maybe try swapping the cable and make sure you’re using an OEM cable.

    Yes, try plugging it into the USB port in the car. I don’t believe any American automakers offer wireless CarPlay at the moment.

    You might also look to see if there is a section about CarPlay in the Buick's owner's manual.

    it actually works. if in the near future it becomes totally wireless without having to plug in the USB will A software update do The trick or do we know since that probably a while off

    A software update would probably do the trick but auto companies seem to ship this stuff as feature sets for particular models. I’m doubtful they’ll suddenly unlock the ability. It’s been there for a while and they would have done it already.
