FWIW, I like having CarPlay but I could live without it. I much prefer the factory navigation over using Google maps or Waze. With the top down the Google screen is almost impossible to see in sunlight. I find it much easier to zoom in and out with the factory nav. I use it for playing my music and the factory system will do the same thing. I guess driving and interacting with phones at the same time is much more a millennial thing.
