I now have a brand new Samsung phone A13 to replace my old iPhone 7 which needed repair I did used to like Apple car play with texts coming up etc will my Samsung android work in my CHR do I have to buy new cable etc ? Thankyou for your help
Yes, you'll need a new cable. Apple is using thunderbolt and that's not something you'll find on any other phone.
But a USB-A to USB-C cable is a couple of money, so not a big deal.
And there's very little difference in features between Android Auto and Apple Car.
