I know for a fact that CarPlay/Android Auto isn't optional. That was a mess up by someone at Ford. Either the person that loads options into the website or whoever gives that person the info. Someone did clarify that CP/AA are standard. You are right about the wireless stuff. Still, they worded it really clumsily.I just had an idea. What if the navigation is subscription-based, because it comes with the 4GLTE Hotspot. Because the navigation would run on the cell service not satellite service. Then I could fully understand why you would need that for the GPS. No cell service no GPS.
also that could be why Apple CarPlay and android auto appear to be optional. It’s standard if you use a USB cord. But optional for wireless CarPlay and android auto which is available on the new F150 with LTE hotspot.
