Apple CarPlay - The ultimate copilot. CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. And now with an all‑new CarPlay Dashboard that helps you with tunes, turns, and Siri suggestions, a Calendar app that lets you view and manage your day, and maps that reveal more of what’s around you, getting there just got a whole lot easier. And a lot more fun. It features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad, or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong. To activate Siri voice control, just press and hold the voice control button on the steering wheel. If your CarPlay-equipped vehicle has a touchscreen, you can use it to control CarPlay. CarPlay also works with the knobs, dials, or buttons in the car. If it controls your screen, it controls CarPlay. CarPlay has maps. The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. And now with a more detailed map, turn‑by‑turn spoken directions, and immersive 3D experiences, it’s easier than ever to get where you need to go. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favorite restaurant, or looking for nearby gas stations. Using your iPhone, users can make calls, return calls, listen to voicemail messages or ask Siri to read your messages. Siri can also reply and send text messages while you are driving. You can listen to your audio messages through your car stereo speakers too. CarPlay provides access to all your content from your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car’s built‑in controls. Search by artist, album, or song. See what’s playing and what’s up next. You can ask Siri to play your favorite song by Arcade Fire, act as your personal DJ, or stream one of more than 100,000 live radio stations. Want to view your calendar from the road? With CarPlay you can use a new Calendar app which gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you’re on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tap to get directions or dial in, using your car’s speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favorite audio, messaging, and voice apps. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay. You can personalize your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone. CarPlay supports third-party navigation apps directly from the Dashboard. So you have even more choices to get where you’d like to go. Every major automobile manufacturer has partnered with us in supporting CarPlay. There are over 500 models to choose from, with more on the way. You can also add CarPlay to your current car with an aftermarket system.

My new Car Infotainment System - Apple CarPlay

"Really prefer using my iPhone and Apple CarPlay in my car, especially for navigation and music. So much better than what car manufacturers have in the cars. I would recommend no longer looking for the upgrade navigation package in a new car and just make sure their system is Apple CarPlay compatible."
