Full screen Carplay on the 12"? I'm not seeing that on the video.
If that's the case that would make for a crazy large carplay screen. Which then would make me want the high package.

But, I need to see that in action first (Actually expanding the carplay screen).
I'm saying it doesn't go fullscreen Apple Carplay, it's windowed into the 3/4 space that Ford software assigns to it. I want full screen CarPlay and the video does not show that.


You see how he touches the button here? Thats him maximizing the large screen to be full screen. Its not specifically car play hes maximizing but can be surmised that you can maximize any screen, hiding the side screen

This here shows how you can move any side screen, to the larger screen. Then with the step above, you can maximize the larhe screen to be full screen

OK so there is no getting the 12" screen on a Black Diamond? I dunno, I mean I will live without it, but this business of keeping the good options out of certain models is bad customer service at the very least. You can buy a Porsche with any option at any level. Maybe the B&P update will fix this?

I had some time to spend with the 12" screen on the new 2021 F150 and it is amazing! Very quick and easy to use, for sure will be getting it on my Bronco.

stayed at that Marriott in Glenwood springs many times. Such a cool
Area, and a great jumping off point to explore many others. Good place to start exploring with the Bronco!

Is CarPlay/Android Auto seriously unable to go full screen? I just read another comment that makes it sound like CarPlay can be maximized. I sure hope so.

I really wish manufacturers would go back to analog and leave the screens out of the car or at least give us an option to not have it. All I care about is being able to stream music. The nav on phones work way better. These screens don't age well in cars and the manufacturers aren't going to keep up with the third party market.

According to the B&P, Synch 4 comes on ALL models - even the non-sasquatch Base.

Check out the "Radio Type".

Have you heard of carplay or Android auto?
Essentially puts your phone on the big screen in as minimally invasive of a way as possible

It's just a WAG from a previous poster. No reason to think that they would implement such a limitation.
