frequently asked questions

Apple CarPlay is a user interface designed by Apple specifically for vehicles. It displays applications from your phone onto the built-in display of your vehicle dash.

CarPlay works by connecting your phone to your in-car entertainment system via USB cable or a wireless connection. Your phone will transmit the CarPlay interface to your vehicle’s display, which allows you to control it through your vehicle’s factory fitted entertainment controls.

No, the retrofit CarPlay system works in conjunction with your vehicle’s existing entertainment system, and effectively acts as an ‘add-on’ to said system.

The retrofit CarPlay auto unit is installed behind the vehicle dashboard. Access is usually gained by removing the radio panel, head unit and a panel in the passenger footwell. It is then connected in-between the built in LCD/TFT display and the existing wiring loom. The unit sends and receives the signals from the iPhone to the TFT display and the rest of the vehicle entertainment system. User control signals are utilised to control CarPlay.

No, you do not require a GPS antenna in the cart as CarPlay will use your phone’s built-in GPS antenna.

Yes! CarPlay is compatible with both.

Head Unit: What Is It and Why Does Your Car Need It?

Almost everything today is digitized, including the maps you use for navigation and the music you play while driving. As such, modern vehicles often come equipped with a head unit or provisions for the installation of one.

Also called the infotainment system, an automotive head unit is a screen that allows you to control your car’s miscellaneous functions, like audio, GPS and air conditioning. The unit looks like a tablet usually installed into your car’s dashboard for easy access.

Head units today are also compatible with mobile devices through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. When connected to the head unit, the display can mirror that of your mobile device so you can safely use functions like music and navigation.

Older car models may not have a built-in head unit, but car technicians at Seven Smart Auto can install one for you. Give our workshop in Sydney a visit and enjoy the benefits of having a trusty head unit in your vehicle.

How a CarPlay-Compatible Head Unit Benefits You

A head unit is a vital piece of technology on its own. But when it can be integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, it becomes even more valuable. With the installation of a head unit in your car, you can set up Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and enjoy the following benefits:

Connect your mobile device seamlessly
An Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-integrated head unit reinvents the way you use your phone while on the road. Instead of the limited capability of connecting your phone to your head unit via Bluetooth, you can instead access a “mirror” of your phone screen using a cable.

Make and answer calls
With a head unit primed for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making and answering calls is easier than ever. The call that appears on your phone screen will also reflect on your head unit’s screen, allowing you to see who’s calling without having to turn your head away and use your hands to access your phone. This makes driving much safer.

Read and send messages
Since Apple and Android devices have virtual assistants, you can easily read and send text messages. Incoming messages can be read using text-to-speech and you can simply dictate your response.
