In this video Darren Palmer says that when using navigation in Android Auto the navigation directions will also appear in the instrument cluster. Does anybody know if the same will apply to CarPlay?

Nevermind... my hearing comprehension needs work he clearly said Android Auto and CarPlay... I missed it the first time I heard it.

I don't know about Carplay but I got it to work with Android Auto. It's pretty slick. It is my video at about the 24:30 mark

Very awesome. Hoping it works the same with CarPlay. Did you have to configure anything?

Nope, it just worked. It surprised me to see it just pop up. I'm getting an iPhone from work tomorrow. I'll test Carplay as soon as I can.

Works very well. CarPlay works well and the nav directions appear nicely in instrument cluster. Very nice!

Not working for me with CarPlay. Tried Waze, Google Maps and Apple Maps.
None shown the instructions in the instrument cluster.
Only with default sync navigation. Am I missing something?

I will verify that I was not wrong and actually using the built in nav instead of CarPlay.

Did this ever resolve? Were you able to sort out how to use it with carplay?

Also, I could have swore that at one point I found in the settings how to change what displays in the instrument cluster, but for the life of me I now can't seem to find the settings. Any of you know where this is buried?

CarPlay is only designed to present the navigation via CarPlay.

Built-in Nav or Android Auto are able to pipe in the turn-by-turn into the instrument cluster.

CarPlay directions do not appear in the instrument cluster, at least when using Waze and Apple Maps. Andriod Auto does display on the instrument cluster. Maybe in an OTA update?

I think it also depends on if apple actually supports that. Apply may not be sending out any info to the car that it can use on other screens.

Does CarPlay navigation instruction show up in the instrument cluster on any cars (Ford or not) out there?

If not, it is likely that CarPlay simply doesn't provide the additional metadata necessary for instrument cluster display. It would require an update to a future iOS version. (That's assuming Apple decides it's worth their time, which is not guaranteed.) It's not something Ford can decide or do.

Interesting. What about changing what is actually displayed in the instrument cluster? Where are the settings hidden for that?
