I just bought Sony XAV-AX200 to use with my iPhone 7 plus in a 2007 Volkswagen Golf (Rabbit).
Now it seams that CarPlay can’t deal with my 50 000 song iCloud music library.
- It takes 5 minutes to load the playlists
- It takes another 5 minutes to start playing one, being unresponsive during that time
- Once it finally starts playing a track as soon as I click ‘next’, it jams again and takes minutes to change the track
My analytics data section if full of ‘music.cpu_resource’ log entries where it says my cpu usage is around 80% over 180 seconds. Also there are standard music crash logs. And there are about 10 ‘stacks+music’ logs from a single session. All of them say ‘reason: scene update watchdog transgression: com.apple.music exhausted real (wall clock) time allowance of 10.00 seconds…..’
All the other apps on CarPlay like podcasts, maps and such work flawlessly but not ‘Music’
I am using an official Apple cable, the latest iOS 12.1, and the Sony is updated with the latest firmware.
I’ve tried most things I know from my experience with apple products:
- reset all settings
- restore as new
- forget car (in carplay settings)
- change cable
None of this fixed the problem. As soon as the icloud music library is switched on, CarPlay is in permanent beachball mode.
The only way to use it successfully is to switch off icloud music library. Then it works fine. But that’s obviously not a solution.
So I'm wondering what else I should do, or whether CarPlay can even handle 50'000 tracks. Any help appreciated!
