Ford just released an update for their system. If you contact Mercedes, they might be issuing an update soon as well

I call BS here. They can identify the systems through the cable and fall back to gps speed detection on the phone in these cases. This has existed since 2016, so they should have created a workaround by now.

Why would CarPlay create a workaround for this? It just doesn't make sense and they have no idea that the speed is incorrect. They only display what they are being given via the vehicle interfaces from the modules that are computing the speed data (braking module).

What do you consider to be BS about it? What systems are you thinking they should be identifying? The raw speed information from the braking module? That would require Apple to read the CAN bus information and that is just far too much work when Ford is already delivering the information via the USB interface for them.
