I recently purchased a 2019 Mazda 3 and I've had numerous problems with CarPlay. Mainly, I get a black screen when opening most 3rd party apps such as SiriusXM or Amazon Music. When the apps do work, often times they will freeze up and I can't even navigate the CarPlay interface to switch to another app such as Maps. When this happens, I've gotta grab my iphone and swap out of them manually... It's pretty frustrating and negates the whole purpose of CarPlay's convenience. Has anyone else experienced these problems, and if so, what was the remedy?
