    CarPlay showing old text messages
    Apple CarPlay is showing old text messages that are not on my iPhone. They have a Year Date as "00". Is this issue in the CarPlay system or with my iPhone? I suspect the issue is in CarPlay but I do not know how to delete these old msgs

    Dig out your owner's manual to see if it has instructions on how to clear the messages. If your owner's manual is anything like mine (we have a new 2019 auto) you may have to contact your dealer to figure it out. I suspect the old text messages are a problem with CarPlay rather than your phone.

    There are also great car forums all over the internet, just saying.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    LOL!!! Isn't that so typical. Or maybe check with any grandchild that may be handy and available.

    That's a great suggestion. I have used car forums to get answers to questions that I couldn't figure out. Thanks Bob.

    Reminds me of the young salesman that sold us our car. He went through setting up CarPlay so fast that I could barely keep up.

    If you haven't been around a late model auto with all the "Nanny" stuff, you would be surprised to see how much is included with a typical new auto.

    That is so true as my sister discovered recently, she was in a nasty fender-bender with her 2000 Subaru Outback and the insurance company arranged for a loaner, an almost new Toyota Camry for her to use.

    It had so many electronic gadgets and displays and stuff that it scared the hell out of her and she returned the car that's it had just too much confusing stuff and she didn't feel safe driving it.

    Odd, that it's illegal up here to use a cell phone when driving, but not so apparently with all the built-in radios, displays and other gadgets. But that's another story...

    What's worse is that a typical owner's manual does not adequately cover all the menus and items that are available. Our owner's manual covers three model years but does not have specifics about our model. I finally was able to download a PDF version which is somewhat better. Anyway, my adult daughter is the only one who can figure out how to operate the radio and stereo music including the Sirius FM stuff!

    My owner's manual has very little about CarPlay. Anyway, the old text messages just disappeared on their own.
