To delete an app from your Carplay interface, click on the minus (-) button next to the app and then click on ‘Remove’. To add an app to your Carplay interface, click on the plus (+) button next to the app. The app will now be available on your Carplay interface.

You can also adjust the order of the apps on your Carplay interface. To do this, click and hold the app that you want to move and then drag it to your desired position. You can also move apps between different screens by dragging them to the edge of the screen.

Once you have made the desired changes, click on the ‘Back’ button to save the changes. If you want to reset your Carplay interface to the default settings, click on the ‘Reset’ button.
