    If the car is already spec'd for Apple Carplay, can Apple Carplay be used via Bluetooth on a Lusso or must a cord be attached to the phone via the center console?

    Wired. Wireless Carplay is a relatively new addition to the automotive world. I only really started hearing cars featuring it starting with 2020 model years.

    Porsche, BMW, Kia etc. have just started introducing it into their cars. The feature is usually paired with wireless charging due to obvious synergy. I don't see Ferrari adding wireless carplay anytime soon.

    Ironically, the FF was the first car ever to get Carplay. One of the few times when Ferrari is actually ahead of the curve for infotainment!

    Wireless only possible when using “CARPLAY2air“ adapter. It’s working just fine

    What is this device? An add-on piece of equipment or an app or both?

    for Sandman, it’s an additional small device available via internet, not an app. It connects automatically when you activate the carplay in the Ferrari infotainment system. I assume it works on the FF too. All the best.

    for Papou, without Carplay installed in the Ferrari infotainment it’s not working.

    BTW I love having carplay. Yes it's hardwired but damn it's worth having. I think it's the right way to make car electronics.

    Highjacking this thread because I dont think it's really worth creating a new one for this, but anybody knows if there is a way to have Apple CarPlay actually use the entire width of the screen? As it is it leaves about 5cm of unused screen on each side. On my BMW, it takes the full width and that is the same ratio than the Lusso screen so for sure it's not an Apple CarPlay limitation. (+ it's wireless in the BMW...)
