Cable for Apple Car Play?

Hello all -

Would anyone know if I need a cable connector for my iPhone to connect to get Car Play to work or is it over Bluetooth? The 2019 I ordered is coming soon. If I need a cable, what is a good length to use so I can keep things neat looking?

Thanks - Tom

some things work via bluetooth and others don't. For example. you need cable for Waze and Google Maps. I personally use a standard 3ft cable and a mount by ProClip

Standard lightning cable is fine.

Off hand I don't recall where the USB port is on the 2019 but, if its behind the dash door, a flat type USB lighting cable may fit better in the crack and let you close the door.

CarPlay requires the cable to work. Very few motor vehicles have the wireless version of CarPlay at this point in time. As was noted already, several other functions can work via BlueTooth for hands-free operation. CarPlay, however...is wired.
