Apple CarPlay is a new software that allows you to use your iPhones apps and features on your car's system. CarPlay also uses Siri as a voice command for sending messages, reading messages, setting destinations, and calling someone in your contacts. All this is specifically designed for driving scenarios and to let you concentrate on the road but also allows for using your Phone appropriately.
Apple CarPlay is compatible with all the important iPhone apps such as:
Maps- CarPlay can predict your destination based on address's found in your e-mail, text messages, contacts, and even calenders. You can also use Siri to say where it is your going, and maps will guide you there safely and quickly.
Phone- Simply ask Siri and you can make calls, return missed calls and listen to voice-mails.
Messages- Siri will read, reply and send messages on your behalf. For example, "Siri, tell Jane I'll be there in 30 minutes", and it's as easy as that.
Music- You have the ability to access all your music from iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify. Search for artists, albums, songs, see whats playing next, you can even ask Siri what song you want to play.
Now available on 2018 Pioneer navigation units.
Apple have introduced wireless CarPlay. Usually CarPlay requires your iPhone to be plugged in, but with wireless CarPlay you can connect wire free.
