Apple CarPlay Stereo Receiver

Apple sees CarPlay as a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. Anything you want to do while driving with your iPhone, you do with CarPlay on the screen of your car. It’s easy to get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, listen to music, and still focus on the road.

In principle, Apple CarPlay is just a user interface to iPhone designed to ensure that you can use iPhone features while driving.

In most cases, the car manufacturers have integrated CarPlay or CarPlay can be easily integrated using a car radio / infotainment system.

From today’s perspective, cars built before 2016 are difficult to retrofit. This means that an accessory device must be used.

However, Apple CarPlay does not support all iPhone apps. In the beginning, only Apple’s own apps could be used. An opening took place with the integration of Spotify and Whats App and from iOS 12 on navigation apps from third parties like Google Maps or Waze can finally be used.

Functions of CarPlay:

You can call contacts and send messages to them by voice command or tap.
Navigation is possible using Apple Maps.
You can listen to music via iTunes or Spotify, and Amazon Audible and Audio Books will entertain you as you drive, too.
You can use Whats App to send messages
