Good Morning,

One issue I have noticed is that I cannot access my home Wi-Fi unless I disconnect from CarPlay in the house. I have no issues with Apple CarPlay in the vehicle. When I am in the house, I am using cellular coverage because it will not allow me to connect to Wi-Fi. If I turn off CarPlay it still will not work. However, if I disconnect the vehicle from CarPlay, I am able to access the home Wi-Fi again. I did a Google search but was not able to find a solution. Any advice would be appreciated!

When I paired the phone to CarPlay, I used Bluetooth as per the instructions. I just noticed that I named the Hummer Wifi Hotspot the same name as my home wifi when at the dealership. I changed the name of the hotspot and will see if that helps. Thanks!

Yeah that would do it.... you had an issue with the SSID.

Ha, that would do it also. Note again, CarPlay uses Bluetooth for the initial setup, then switches to WiFi itself after that first part of setup - can't be on it and another Wifi signal at same time. Reason it needs wifi is that Bluetooth is too slow/doesn't have the bandwidth for the amount of data CarPlay uses.
