I’ve been looking to see if anyone else has this happen. Maybe once every two weeks (I drive just about daily) CarPlay will leave the screen it is on, usually maps, and reset to only CarPlay icons. If I go back to Maps, it requires me to re-enter the address to which I was navigating. SUPER annoying, especially because it has happened where new directions are appearing so I have no idea where I am supposed to go unless I pull over and enter the address again.

It's the maps app crashing on your iPhone. It happens occasionally to me too and yup it is a pain.

Whenever I start to get problems with the phone to car connection in any of our cars the first thing I always try is to:

1) Make sure the phone software is updated
2) After the update delete the phone from the car and delete the car in the phone
3) Re-pair the phone to the car

It is not a guaranteed fix, but there are a lot of times that this takes care of the problem without having to take a trip into the dealer to try and solve it.

Weird. Since it never happened before I had my Mach e, do you think it is just too much going on with wireless CarPlay?

Not the mach e, just the maps app updating and having issues. Hopefully they'll fix it.
