Anyone else experienced Siri unable to read out whole messages in Apple CarPlay?
This happens with text messages and WhatsApp messages. It also doesn’t like reading back my replies and then hangs, which is very annoying. I also often get half a reply to any question I may ask, like “what is the weather to be like?”

I have a MY21 Turbo S with all the latest updates. I also have my phone iPhone updated to iOS14.5.1.

I have googled this issue and have found a news article saying it may be a bug with iOS14.5.1. However, as most of my niggles have been based around the PCM and the handover and integration between it and CarPlay I can’t rule the PCM out.
I’ve tried the usual; soft reset of the phone. Disconnect and reconnect to the PCM, but it still fails two in every three times.
Frustrating.

Love to hear if I’m not alone.

I can tell you it happens to me in multiple vehicles, so it’s not the Taycan PCM.

I had the same issue using wireless CarPlay in the loaner Macan S I’m in right now. Rebooting my iPhone (11 Pro running iOS 14.5.1) seemed to clear it up. had no problems when wired.

Issue appears to point to iOS14.5.1

Siri behaves this way even when not connected to the car. It took me a while to realise this.

What I’ve found to work is goto settings/Siri & Search & slide off “Hey Siri”
Power the phone off & on then slide “Hey Siri” back on.

Not sure if this is a permanent fix or something I’ll have to do regular but at least I know it’s not the PCM.

Wonkiness since the update is a good assessment. I can't get Sirius/XM to work anywhere near as well as it did before the update, which is really disappointing since I can't go a mile without Ozzy's BoneYard or Liquid Metal.

As I was saying above I have this with multiple cars, so this one is not on the Taycan!

That is why I did some testing to prove that it was the phone and not the PCM.

Please try my suggested work around. Appears to be temporarily working for me.

:please:
