    Hi All

    Anyone on here getting a B9/2020 Passat with WIRELESS Apple CarPlay ?

    I'm interested in how well it works (or not)

    Thanks

    My next lease car will be a B8.5 SEL - it's on order, "Build week confirmed" according to the My VW app (which curiously doesn't tell you what the build week actually is, merely that it's confirmed). I use Google Maps for nav these days (its sooooo good with it's ETA based on live traffic) so wireless CarPlay will be a boon. Will report back when it arrives.

    Thanks for your post

    I look forward to your reply ... and hopefully you will get wireless CarPlay

    Do you rate Google Maps over Waze which seems to be the darling of the internet at the moment

    TBH I haven't used Waze that much. I prefer to have a traditional North-up map-style display rather than a turn-by-turn SatNav style display, and I use Google Maps a lot on my laptop so I'm familiar with how it looks. I guess I should give Waze a bit more of a go. Google bought Waze so you'd think they might both use the same data anyway?

    [Edit:] Just watched a YouTube video giving reasons why to use Waze over Google Maps. There are certainly some useful features in there, esp. being able to send a text message with your ETA and the speed limit/display/warning thing.

    You can set it to 2D map north up in the settings (that's how I prefer them too otherwise too much movement in your peripheral vision)

    I have also ordered B8.5 SEL which is showing ' Build week confirmed'. Ordered at local VW on 5 Sept and progress to latest stage notified on 20 Sept. I see from VW FAQs that this stage should typically last for 4 weeks so will be looking for move toward build any day now.

    Sorry for thread drift.

    Sounds like we will be having a race on the production line! Mine was ordered early Sept, not sure of exact date as it's through a lease co. At the point I asked them for the tracking number (20 Sept) it was showing as build week confirmed. I don't understand why it doesn't tell you the build week that it has confirmed...
