Love that it connects automatically when I get in the vcar and starts playing my Pandora. The screen projection is great when using Google maps makes it easy to get to where I need to be and I love that I can split the screen and see multiple apps at the same time. I have had it disconnect while driving a couple of times, and have to wait a few minutes for it to reconnect and stay connected. Inconvenient while using Maps, but otherwise just annoying. Overall I'm very happy.

Until the most recent update, the one that added the split screen ability, the only issue was the need to connect with a Samsung cable for a Samsung phone. Now, maps don't connect from the app unless I set the map direction up before plugging into the car. Also, text messages pop up for a short notice, but close to a small number at the bottom of the screen at the right side, furthest away from the driver. Difficult to get to fast or easy while driving.

Absolutely despise the new UI. The real estate is inefficiently utilized and it's much more tedious to navigate. It was way better when the music bar was at the bottom instead of unnecessarily occupying 1/4 or 1/2 of the screen. The app dock at the bottom has no justifiable use case. Also not a fan of the clock being moved to a less noticeable location. I wish we could customize the layout of the UI, because this is just bad. At the very least, add another toggle to use the old layout.
