CarPlay reliability issues

I’ve been using CarPlay since I got my new Golf last year and it’s been solid until the latest version of iOS, 12.1.4.

What I’m finding is that I’ll be using it and it’ll suddenly disconnect my iPhone and go back to the ‘connect iPhone to use CarPlay’ message on the VW in car screen.

I’ve gotten used to a ‘no audio’ message that requires a restart but this is stopping me using it. To fix it I need to reconnect the cable.

Anyone else experiencing this?

(For reference this is me using it on a 2017 VW Golf GTE).
