Seems the trend in web sites is very spares specifics and appeal more to picture and graphics to grab you emotionally in. I can't find anywhere if the XC40 Recharge has wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Looking through the online manual I don't see a reference and the online manual is pretty weak as well.

Best I can tell it does not. Rather weak for a car that costs as much as this does in today's market. when you can get that on entry level cars now...

There is a post somewhere in the forum that wireless Carplay is scheduled for release in a future OTA update. That was a concern for me as well, but so far, I am pleasantly surprised at how well the native Android OS works.

You can buy a dongle that will convert it to wireless. I've ordered one from an Indiegogo campaign for Android called AA wireless that is scheduled to ship in June however just like everyone else they are having a hard time getting microchips.There are a couple of youtube videos from people who have received theirs showing how it works.

The paper spec sheet I have that notes it as coming later specifically says it will be wireless when it arrives. There’s a white ring around the usb-c port that will useful for those who want to plug their phone in, but it should also work wireless.
