Post Wireless carplay for macan?

Hi guys how are you? I wanted to know if carplay was available by bluetooth or wi fi on the macan. I have a 2017 macan gts. sometimes connecting the cable can be so frustrating or if you forget the cable.

thanks

No wireless CarPlay yet. Not sure if it will upgradeable. I have an extra cable I keep in center storage area...it's black. I use it when needed.

Does Porsche provide a cable for CarPlay, or is this your own?
Thanks

No cable is provided. I have 2 cables from Amazon. IXCC brand with MFI. 1-foot and 3-foot. I use the 3-foot for CarPlay. Color is black.

I was under the impression that there is no such thing as wireless CarPlay for any vehicle manufacturer, at least not yet.

There is, it's been a slow roll out, but BMW has it in the new 5 series, and I think KIA might have it too.

Gone but not forgotten:
2013 Audi S5 "Olivia"

Porsche also sells a USB to lightning cable. I have it, it was expensive and is very robust, but it's not very practical if you want to pull the iPhone towards you as it's coiled type and it's quite thick, so it requires some effort to straighten it. It came in a nice box.

Yep, just saw on Cnet that in its 2017 5 Series, BMW is the first automaker to offer wireless CarPlay support. However, Harman, which supplies telematics systems to several automakers, now supports a wireless connection, so expect to see it trickle out in other models shortly. And Harmon is Porsche's supplier.

Buy a cable but make sure its hot an angled plug.

With a straight plug the iPhone is very tight when it is placed in the aerial booster bracket and the angled plug give a bit more room.
