Does the phone need to be plugged in to the USB port for Carplay?

I actually love both...I go with Appleplay a little more, because my car volume won't fade properly during navigation announcements, whereas Carplay does. ....and yes, I have the proper audio fadeout checked off in my sound setting.

As of now, yes it does. It is not wireless...looking for that in the next I-phone OS update.

I think the wireless functionality of the CarPlay is only matter if the vehicle's hardware supports the system. My BMW had wireless CarPlay since day 1 back in iOS11, but my parent's VW Atlas was all USB CarPlay since iOS11 without any changes when upgraded to iOS12.

My MB doesn't have CarPlay so I cannot fully confirm that in this case.
