Apple CarPlay has done one hell of a job bringing in consumers to take a fresh look at Chevrolet, but one 2016 C7 Corvette owner found the system less than perfect.
Paul Pino purchased a brand new 2016 C7 Corvette Stingray equipped with Apple CarPlay for his slew of Apple devices. But, Pino quickly realized he was unable to sync his iPod and iPad alongside his iPhone.
“If you put the iPod or iPad on Bluetooth you lose your connection with your phone and then you don’t have a hands free connection, so it’s not safe,” he explained to local CBS news affiliate Philadelphia 3.
Upon contacting General Motors over the issue, the automaker stated he must wait for an update to remedy the problem, presumable the update coming this spring we’ve heard about. After Pino flipped through the C7 Corvette’s owner’s manual, the accompanying text stated all devices should work in harmony.
Pino filed a lawsuit over a breach of warranty with his 2016 Corvette, a legitimate suit over a product not working as intended.
Since the filing, GM and Pino have settled for $3,000 while he awaits the future software update.
