Features of Apple CarPlay

Through the innovative CarPlay Dashboard, drivers can stay safely connected while on the road. Access your important dates through the Calendar app, get Siri suggestions to complete tasks quickly and see real-time traffic and routes. In addition to Siri voice control features, you can access your Apple device through your car’s touchscreen or by using manual knobs where available. Connect with your contacts, find a great lunch spot or look for the nearest gas station without taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.

Installing CarPlay in an Older Vehicle

If your car or truck was not equipped from the factory with an infotainment system, you can still enjoy all of Apple CarPlay’s benefits by installing a compatible head unit.
