Does anyone know if Jag will charge a monthly fee for car play? I know Audi and Porsche do, I believe after 3 months.

Are you sure you mean Car Play? It’s just an interface supported by the infotainment system, there is no monthly charge.

No additional charge for Android Auto or Car Play on the I-Pace. Jaguar is doing this right, at least. BMW wants to make you pay handsomely for this ability - something like $300 up front, or a monthly subscription.

What cellular connection? CarPlay doesn’t require one, and if you have an iPhone you already have one.

Am I missing something?

For sure it's Car Play.

There is nothing to buy or extra to pay (at least in a HSE). I can’t say if Jaguar does what some other manufacturers do and make it standard on some models and an extra cost option on others.

I was responding to the comment regarding payment after 3 months. That reference is to cellular service. You are correct that you can use any WiFi connection to connect to CarPlay.

Actually when connecting CarPlay via WiFi (which I do not believe I Pace supports) it is a direct WiFi connection not through cellular. This is a high bandwidth video/link over WiFi instead of using the lightening/USB connector.

And honestly I don't recommend it, it supports a much smaller screen projection (than the full screen one I saw on I Pace with a cable) and most people want to plug their phones in to charge during use anyway.

We connect CarPlay through the WiFi Hotspot on our iPhone all the time. You still plug in your iPhone with a cable. Just establish the WiFi connection to your iPhone BEFORE plugging in the phone. Works great and CarPlay is full screen using Waze, Spotify, and TuneIn.
So many questions, sorry.

1) if you are plugging it in anyway why would you use WiFi?

2) Which car is this in regard to, the I Pace?

I have WiFi Carplay capability in one of my cars, and it automatically creates a direct link with my iPhone, not a hotspot. I assume to create a hotspot and connect the car is in order for the car itself to have data access?

If wireless CarPlay works in the I-Pace I do not know how to do it. I can only get it to work via the lightening cable.

I do not believe the I Pace supports it, I am more confused by the other use cases NerdUno is using. I am assuming it is another car or a third part installed stereo. There are very few cars that support wireless CarPlay at the moment. I know I was shocked when my new car was connected before I plugged in and I thought I was confused, until I looked up and saw it actually supports it.

But then the screen size seems rather limited in wireless than it is in the Bolt and when I plugged my phone into an I Pace in a dealer. The I Pace shows a perfect full width display, so does the Bolt. My wireless car shows a much smaller display in the right 2/3rds of the screen.

Our car is a 2019 I-Pace First Edition. The car allows you to choose any WiFi network you wish. We use the iPhone's WiFi HotSpot because our iPhone has unlimited data. Enable WiFi HotSpot on your iPhone. Do NOT plug it in with a cable just yet. In the Settings -> Networking section of the car, choose WiFi and pick the iPhone's WiFi HotSpot as the connection to use. Once connected, plug your iPhone in with a cable to enable CarPlay. Simple as that. CarPlay has to have an Internet connection to work. The iPhone's WiFi HotSpot provides that connectivity. The CarPlay features work as I've documented above. If Waze isn't included in the application list, open it on your iPhone. It then will appear in the list of Map options. Same goes for the music apps.

Not really sure what the purpose of connecting the car to the iPhone's WiFi is if you still need to connect the cable. CarPlay will work through your phone's cellular connection once plugged in, I don't think the extra step of connecting the car to WiFi is necessary.

That's my question also. It seems to me that the WiFi reception and the CarPlay/AndroidAuto capabilities are two different things. It would surprise me if you needed to have WiFi on to enable CarPlay. After all the whole point of CarPlay/AndroidAuto is that you bring the interwebs into your car with just your phone's cell functionality. And the online manual for CarPlay/AndroidAuto doesn't mention anything about having to turn on the car's WiFi. It does say you have to plug your phone into the car's USB port.

CarPlay works using your phone’s network. That’s why it launches after plugging the phone in. Having the car connected to the Hotspot doesn’t make anything work better. In fact I’m not sure what benefit it serves at all.

We couldn't get the Waze and TuneIn apps to work without an independent WiFi connection. YMMV!

You mean the Waze and TuneIn app in the infotainment of the I Pace? If yes then you are correct but why not just use Waze in CarPlay directly? TuneIn is different.

Either way this is not CarPlay over WiFi, this is over the lightening cable. There is actually a WiFi wireless CarPlay that is different.

And again to clarify for original poster there is no "subscription" for CarPlay.
