I own a 2018 VW ATLAS V6 SEL Premium W/4MOTION. I can connect my iPhone via lightning cable to activate Apple CarPlay. Is there a way to connect to Apple CarPlay wirelessly.

There is a third party company that sells an adapter that will allow wireless carplay. Carlinkit is the name. You can find it online or from Amazon. It's $100.

I just bought a CarlinKit from Amazon for $125

It takes about 10-20 seconds to sync with the bluetooth on my phone when I hop in my Atlas and start it up.
I plugged it in the center armrest usb port.
Initial set up was super easy.

So far with 2 days in on it, I do not have any complaints on call quality.
Over seems to work pretty well.
I did notice that I had apple maps up and I did not have any directs loaded in and the map was a little jumpy - when I told it to "take me home" it stopped.

At this point, I am super happy with it as no more wires for those short car trips, I can just leave my phone in my pocket and I get my Apple Carplay.
