If you use phone-based navigation, listen to music apps like Spotify, Pandora, or you want the ability to easily receive/respond to text messages safely… Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is for you.
Integrate Your Smartphone into Your Vehicle We spend hours each day using our smartphones to make calls, listen to music, get directions, update our status, and text our friends and family. If you’re like most Americans driving an average of 100 minutes a day, a large portion of that phone usage happens in your car… So why not take that smartphone interface you already know and integrate it into your car? Make the drive better and safer.
Step Up to Wireless! Until now, you’ve needed a USB connection for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to work… The connection needs in-vehicle WiFi, as Bluetooth alone isn’t robust enough. Bluetooth is great for phone calls or streaming music, but it doesn’t support enough data transfer for all the other bells and whistles. Luckily, many after-market receivers include the technology needed to provide such a WiFi network, so wireless connection is a breeze!
