If you use phone-based navigation, listen to music apps like Spotify, Pandora, or you want the ability to easily receive/respond to text messages safely… Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is for you.
Integrate Your Smartphone into Your Vehicle We spend hours each day using our smartphones to make calls, listen to music, get directions, update our status, and text our friends and family. If you’re like most Americans driving an average of 100 minutes a day, a large portion of that phone usage happens in your car… So why not take that smartphone interface you already know and integrate it into your car? Make the drive better and safer.
Text Messages No more reading and typing while you drive! Send and reply to text messages with Siri or Google – they’ll read your texts to you so you can keep your eyes on the road where they belong.
Navigation Tell Siri or Google where you’re headed, and they’ll get you there! You’ll get turn-by-turn directions, the ability to zoom in on the map, and view live traffic with different routes and real-time traffic info.
Music Siri and Google are the ultimate roadtrip buddies – just tell them what you want to hear, and it plays! Access playlists, Pandora, iTunes, and all of the music you’ve stored on your phone.
Phone With seamless hands-free calling, all you have to do is tell Siri or Google when you want to make a call, take a call, or listen to your voicemails. And you don’t even have to say “please”!
Step Up to Wireless! Until now, you’ve needed a USB connection for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to work… The connection needs in-vehicle WiFi, as Bluetooth alone isn’t robust enough. Bluetooth is great for phone calls or streaming music, but it doesn’t support enough data transfer for all the other bells and whistles. Luckily, many after-market receivers include the technology needed to provide such a WiFi network, so wireless connection is a breeze!
