    Liking the look of the changes, the "dashboard" screen with multiple things on view at the same time should be handy. Also seems in the beta versions currently that if you use the phone to do something the CarPlay screen stays the same and doesnt just change to whatever is on the phone screen or back to the homescreen if its a non carplay app.

    Yes correct. Much better now that the phone can work independently of the CarPlay display

    I'm not completely sure about it....in theory when its connected to CarPlay you are driving and you shouldnt be fiddling with the actual phone even if just stopped in traffic etc so is it just giving people a reason to fiddle. Yes it will let passengers etc do something without the CarPlay screen changing but does that happen that often. I'm just a bit unsure if it goes against the whole point of CarPlay.

    Android auto also getting a refresh, due any time soon. Similar improvements, split screens, being able to do more than one thing without changing screens and dark mode. Also Google have added Google assistant support into Waze.

    I'm the same thou, I use OK Google to change nearly everything, hardly touch the head unit, and never need to touch the phone. That's the whole point on my eyes.

    Yep I use Siri to do things most of the time like directions, messages, phone calls although I do use the touch screen for getting music to be played via Apple Music.

    Can't siri do that. OK Google works on everything, usually Spotify to be fair for me, but Vauxhall system will play tracks from USB stick OK.

    It can but I tend to listen to one of 3 or 4 playlists all the time more often than not so by the time i've fired Siri up, asked it and its thought about it its as easy to go through the simple Music CarPlay screen to select the playlist i want and play it. On the occasions i'm roughing it on the commute to work in the other halfs Astra which has no DAB radio I just get in the car and use Siri to set the sat nav for work and then stream Radio X via Apple Music....works a treat. Other half is such a fan of CarPlay she wants rid of the Astra for the sole reason of getting a car that is CarPlay enabled. Looked at the Corsa & Astra Griffin special editions they've done but now seriously considering one of the new electric Corsa's next year.
