CarPlay Lag Still Not fixed

David Peltz

Just saw the newest update pop up (v.4.2.6) and was hoping the lag was fixed. Sadly, it is still happening. The audio directions are timely but the car symbol on the map is a good 1/2 mile behind where my vehicle is actually located. This obviously makes the app unusable. I'd be more than willing to help beta test new versions to get this terrible bug fixed.

I’m using ABRP in my ID.4 Pro S with latest iOS 15.6.1 and iPhone 12 Pro with CarPlay and BT ODB dongle. My phone heats up so much I believe it’s Thermally throttling my phone as if I continuously hold it in front of the ac vent it starts behaving normally. My phone most of the time is down in the center console out of the sun. This happens when car play is connected wirelessly or via corded connection. There is something that is burning through battery like no tomorrow. For reference car play screenshot and phone screenshot. I’ve also attached a screenshot of battery usage in a 1 hour window from iOS settings. Notice the significant drop in battery. This is also fresh after an app restart as it was severely lagging. To the point where it was several miles behind our actual location. And the phone app was glitched and unresponsive. I’m also using app version 4.2.10 (1060)

We have no doubt that the symptoms are real - the app must be working full throttle in some loop for you and some other users. Our main task now is trying to reproduce it so that we have a chance to fix it.
Any chance you could try it with a vehicle selected which does not have OBD? Or just unplug the OBD dongle in a drive?

Yes, OBD BT dongle in use. All features active: live traffic, weather, charger status.

I am using Version 4.2.9 (1040). I have a long commute, over an hour. Using ABRP with Carplay will cause Carplay to get slower and slower the longer I use it. To the point where it will take upwards of 15-20 seconds or more to respond. Once ABRP is off the screen Carplay will begin to respond normally. If I leave ABRP open long enough it will result in Carplay crashing and being reloaded. ABRP will then be at the an acceptable speed again. This lagging state seems to last through different Carplay sessions. So if I drive for 20 mins, then when I start ABRP in Carplay again it will be just as slow as if I ran it for 20 minutes. It seems like the crash is the only thing that will return ABRP to an acceptable speed.

Merged with: The Longer Carplay is open the slower it gets.

Is OBD in use when this happens?

This is a very serious bug. Same on my iphone/carplay. Makes it unusable to drive. I use latest IOS, latest ABRP, OBD BT dongle. End and restart ABRP app is the only solution. BTW the iphone get really hot, so I guess its a programming failure. Please fix it.

As far as we can tell, the issue has been resolved with the updates we did in 4.2.8!

Same with me sometimes, but not always. ABRP 4.2.6, iPhone 11 Pro, CarPlay.
The car icon is then lagging every approx. 8 seconds.

Maybe it has to do something with changing from 3D view to next destination view and vice versa.

In seldom cases the map freezes in 3D view and the car icon is moving upwards until it leaves the display above. ;)

Is this with an OBD adapter connected?

Yes, OBD through Torque Pro

When changing from 3D view to next destination view, sometimes it takes up to 10 seconds to show the correct section of the map.

Sometimes it seems not willing to show the correct(!) section of the map at all, then I have to restart the App.

And sometimes nothing happens when I click on destination view.

Torque Pro on the iPhone or a separate device?

Torque Pro on a separate Android Tablett.

Are you experiencing this every time or just sometimes? Is the lagging car icon moving smoothly or just every 5-10 seconds?
