CarPlay - Crackling / Interference noise (guidance directions)

Post by nikonphotobro » Mon Dec 17, 2018 7:46 pm


Apologies if this has been raised before (I did a quick search).

Has anyone else noticed a crackling / interference type noise when the voice guidance is giving directions?

In my vehicle (connected by genuine Apple IPhone fire cable) I’m getting a brief crackling sound each time that the system starts giving me a new direction.

I don’t get the crackling noise when using the Volvo Sensus Navigation. Only when using the Apple CarPlay (both Apple Maps and Google Maps).

Rather annoying and keen to learn if anyone else has experienced similar before I contact the dealership.

Thanks in advance

PS - I love my XC40 🚘

Yes I can confirm I have this issue. Very annoying. My partner also has the exact same CarPlay issue in their VW.

Would very much like to know if there’s anything I can do to fix it though.
