Some of the most popular features available through CarPlay include hands-free calling, navigation, music streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Skype, and more.
An Apple CarPlay installation service sets up the system in the vehicle. If you have an iPhone, you can connect it to the car in two ways: wirelessly or via a lightning cable.
Once your phone is connected, the installed CarPlay interface will appear on the vehicle’s infotainment display. The interface will look and feel very similar to your iPhone’s interface. That is intentional as it makes the system very user-friendly.
You can access all of the compatible CarPlay apps and features on your phone through the infotainment display. You can also control them with voice commands or the vehicle’s controls, such as the touchscreen, buttons, and knob.
There are many benefits to installing CarPlay in your vehicle. One of the best things about CarPlay is that it minimizes distractions while driving. That means you can stay focused on the road while still accessing your favourite smartphone features and apps easily. It eliminates the need to use the phone directly and you can use just your voice for commands.
If you frequently use your phone for navigation, music, or messaging while driving, then installing CarPlay would definitely be worth considering. It can help you stay safer on the road.
Any driver will benefit from navigation apps. Waze can help you find the best route through heavy traffic. You can get directions with Apple Maps if you are unfamiliar with your destination.
Streaming music with Spotify or Apple Music is also helpful for keeping drivers alert on the road. Upbeat songs will keep you from falling asleep on the wheel, even on long drives.
Even if you do not usually make calls nor send and accept messages on your phone while driving, it’s good to know that you can use these features hands-free when you need them. You do not have to read messages if you set your phone to read them aloud.
Overall, CarPlay is a great system that can help drivers minimize distractions and stay safer while benefiting from phone apps and features during driving. If you are interested in installing CarPlay in your vehicle, be sure to consult with a mobile electronics specialist to explore your options.
