Full Screen Carplay?

So I have a 2019 with 7" screen, when I connect my iphone, carplay displays in a box/window in the middle of the screen. You can still see the normal radio icons across the bottom, so the overall carplay real estate is a lot smaller than it could be. Is there any way to get it to fill the whole screen?

I tried plugging in an old android phone, and android auto filled the screen with a button to bring you back to the radio. Would have been nice if Carplay worked like that too.

Does it fill the screen on an 8.4 radio or is that the same?

aw, that figures. Oh well. Hopefully it will change with iOS 13 that's supposed to have a big Carplay update.

Are the radios plug and play enough that I could upgrade to an 8.4 some day? I remember reading before that it wasn't that easy with my old 2015 renegade, I ended up getting an aftermarket radio with carplay for that and didn't have any issues.. but I like the newer uconnect, works good for the most part.

it's the same on an 8.4 inch screen. doesnt bother me honestly. allows me to switch back to satellite radio or other menu items easily. i think its more of how Chrysler implemented car play than anything that apple wouldve done.

It is not a box within the screen though. If I am understanding the OP correctly, in their case it open in a box within the screen, similar to running a program in on a PC in windowed mode. In 8.4 it opens in full screen with menu stuff still remaining under. If you run apps like google maps for navigation, it becomes full screen even without those.

Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love my compass. And upgrading my 5inch uconnect to a 7 was the best thing I’ve ever done. But. The whole picture in picture style they use to emulate CarPlay drives me crazy. My brother has Hyundai with a 7 inch screen and it’s full screen. Looks so much better. I had no idea android auto went full screen though. Gives me hope that maybe it can changed in a future update.

Yeah it's basically like a window in the middle of the screen. The screen displays the current temp for the climate control in the top left and right corners of the screen, and carplay shows up between them and above the bottom icon row. I'm hoping the next iOS update will fix it, but i have a feeling it's more a radio issue than a carplay issue.
