What is Apple CarPlay?
Hit the road with Apple CarPlay as your co-pilot and enjoy driving more than ever before. With CarPlay installed on your in-dash digital media receiver, you’ll have maps, music and more at your fingertips. Speaking of hands, when there’s not a passenger along as a DJ, wireless Apple CarPlay provides Siri as your digital voice assistant and hands-free navigation guide on your Apple CarPlay radio. CarPlay is a road-trip essential because you can keep your eyes on the road while Siri changes the song or gives you directions to wherever you’re headed. Apple CarPlay radio and Apple Music selections can also be made manually with the turn of a knob or push of a button on a car’s dashboard receiver. If you’re wondering if your SUV or sedan’s digital media is compatible with Apple CarPlay, the good news is that the number of cars that are compatible with Apple CarPlay keeps growing. Even better, installing Apple CarPlay with a compatible aftermarket system is as easy as scheduling a professional installation appointment with a Best Buy Autotech.
Getting the most out of CarPlay.
Before you add wireless CarPlay to a car that doesn’t already have an in-dash navigation setup, dash installation kits are necessary to complete the install. iPhone CarPlay syncing connects every app on your phone to your car’s digital dashboard. All iPhone models (iPhone 5 and newer) are compatible with Apple CarPlay. Your phone’s data helps Apple Maps anticipate your needs based on messages and search history, showing you directions to that new restaurant you’ve been wanting to check out or the nearest gas stations on your daily route, leaving you free to focus on driving. Having your calendar visible on your dashboard screen means you’ll never miss an appointment, and you can easily call ahead if you run into traffic. If you have a favorite map app, Apple CarPlay works with many third-party navigation systems. Are you buying CarPlay as a gift?
