Maybe you have heard of CarPlay but never had the change to experience it? Perhaps you are shopping for a new vehicle and want to know if it has CarPlay? In either case, you have come to the right place.

Let’s look at the benefits of having or adding Apple CarPlay to your in-car experience.

Reduce distractions
You probably have your phone in a cup holder, phone mount, or pocket while driving. As you know it is easy to become distracted by notifications or trying to change the song.
With CarPlay, alerts are kept to a minimum, leaving your attention on the road. If you do get a call or text, CarPlay will allow you to respond without ever taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.

The display is built for driving
A factory installed CarPlay stereo or aftermarket radio is likely much larger than your phone screen. CarPlay takes over your factory screen and gives you easy access to the apps used most while driving and allows you to do almost anything needed with Siri.

Siri
When Apple CarPlay is enabled, your only need to say, “Hey Siri,” to get anything you want.
Here is an example:
“Hey Siri, text Brian, I am running late but will be home in 15 minutes.”
Siri responds, “OK, Ill send a text to Brian that says, I am running late but will be home in 15 minutes. OK to send?
If you respond yes, the text will be sent.

Built-in Navigation
While your car may have navigation, with CarPlay, you have access to Google Maps, Waze and Apple maps for free with real-time traffic updates! This means no more subscription fees or map updates needed.

Other Features:
Live Sports Scores
Weather
Streaming Music (Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify and more…)
