Default Bit pricy but worth it

New member here. I did have it installed. At my dealership charged $360 out the door.
I spend a lot of time on my commute and am glad to have it. I use Google Maps most of the time and you can have it display traffic as well as switch to satellite view. It also allows searching for saved places and previous searches.
Another benefit is for listening to podcasts. The app makes it very easy to find, select and play podcasts.
One other that I use often is listening and reply to text messages by dictation.
Finally, the connection does a much better job charging your phone.
I do agree the price turned me off at the beginning, but I am glad to have it.

Car play puts your phone's interface on your car's infotainment screen. So you can use your phone with the touch screen or center console controls.
For some it is well worth the $400 - which in the world of infotainment systems does not seem like a rip off.
And, for those up to the challenge: you can pay $200 and DIY which is what I will be doing if I make the plunge.
For now I have the poor man's alternative to the integrated car play: an excellent phone mount for the CX-5
I highly recommend the pro-clip phone holder for really any car. They are expensive ($70 for a mount customized to the car and clip for your phone), but they really work nice. The 2nd gen CX-5 version holds the phone in the lower right corner of your infotainment screen and angles the phone toward the driver. It is in a good location for maps or pausing your podcast. And, your phone won't get tossed to the floor or fall out of the center console bin when you hit a pothole or practice your gymkhana moves

Same here. Using a great magnet phone holder. Not ready to shell out $400 yet
