Default Car Play

I recently contacted Chevrolet and ask about my infotainment center. I asked why wasn't my "Escort Live" app not showing up for Car Play. Chevrolet told me to contact Apple.
I contacted Apple to ask why Escort Live was not showing up in Car Play. Apple techs told me that it is up to the creator of the app "Escort" to make it show up in car play.

With this said, When can WE expect to see Escort Live show up in Car play so we won't have to view via the iPhone? It would be nice to see it show up in the infotainment center via Car Play.

We are looking into adding Car Play compatibility to Escort Live. Thank you for letting us know that you would like to have it.

That would be interesting indeed although not all CarPlay implementations are equal. For instance if I plug my iPhone into the USB port of my 2016 Chevy truck with factory installed CarPlay, the speed shown on escort live reduces by 1.85 so if I’m going seventy two escort live goes down to 39. I have the same issue with Waze (and it’s been released for CarPlay!) and any other app that calculates speed. I must use external power (not system usb power) for the iPhone if I want any app to show correct speed or correct arrival times.
I have as of yet not found an answer to this on any forum, from Chevrolet, or apple. No problem on a 2018 Chevy
My 2018 Subaru with CarPlay works perfectly.

There is an answer to this after all. Went to the Chevy dealer to have them run a “diagnostic” just to check if there was a firmware update. After $110, since my truck is out of base warranty, and an updated firmware flashed to my truck, speed calculation on the iPhone is now correct for all apps including waze.
Sure is nice when things word properly.

That's great! Thank you for following up. The incorrect speed showing on iPhone apps when the iPhone is connected to GM vehicles is a commonly reported issue and has been out of our control.

So now armed with this update, I would try escort live when it comes to CarPlay.
