B1218 ROCK Core on NUC10i3
ARC B149 on iPhone 12 Pro, iOS 16.3.1
Wireless CarPlay on Pioneer DMH-Z6350BT
ARC CarPlay was pretty flawless for me up until these last few releases, see here: B142/B1208 CarPlay Issues - #7 by oneofmany
But these same issues, albums not loading, wrong artwork in now playing, no artwork or not all of it loading on all screens keep plaguing me.
I thought I had cured the issues on Monday, as for the last week previously I’d gone back to using Tidal and given up on ARC but I wondered what would happen if I turned off the ARC CarPlay app on my iPhones CarPlay settings.
This seemed to cure the issue.
I went through the rigmarole of killing all apps on my iPhone, then I rebooted it whilst my car engine was turned off, then I started the engine, added the ARC CarPlay app back onto the Pioneer head unit from the settings on my iPhone and hey presto it was all working flawlessly again. At for 6 days until I got in my car this morning and once again all the same issues were back. I once again went through the rigmarole of the process outlined previously and it seems to be working again.
I’m in my car everyday and the first thing I do is put music on, ARC’s CarPlay experience, at least for, has become a terribly tiresome and frustrating user experience.
Am I the only one having these issues? Is it CarPlay OS, ARC’s CarPlay app or the Pioneer head unit firmware? I don’t know but please can someone from Roon look into it?
It’s literally driving me crazy
