Apple Car Play compatible cords.

Been looking for something heavier duty than the factory apple cord for headunit. An old scosche or seems to work, but I tried a flat version also from scosche but it will only charge the device off the headunit. Doesn't function correctly with carplay.

This one didnt work either. Both MFi Certified.

Any leads on cords, cheap heavier duty and works with car play?

I bought a red lightning cable from Walmart. It works great with my iPhone 6.

I've used two of these and not had an issue. (one broke thanks to a passenger's arm)

Bought a $6 cable at ampm. Works perfect with car play. Heavy duty as well. Scosche... I’m disappointed. End.

Apple Car Play compatible cords.

I got the Genuine Audi Apple Carplay Android Auto Interface Cable with flexible USB plug.



I think I got it from https://www.ebay.com/itm/184187834361eBay

I use one for CarPlay (also charges the phone) and the other for Echo auto.

Have been using it for more than a year. No issues! Being flexible is great plus!

Thanks
