One of the most exciting technologies we have seen in a long time at Precision Audio is Apple’s CarPlay. If you own an iPhone 5 or newer, running iOS 7.1 or later, you owe it to yourself to stop by at Precision Audio for a live demo. As consumers, we love technology, but if we are honest with each other, we tend to get distracted rather easily. And when you couple that with driving an automobile, the consequences can be dangerous – even deadly. Apple aims to change all of that.
iPhone Voice Control From Your Radio
CarPlay is a software built into several models of touchscreen radios that we sell. The idea behind this great technology is to give you control over important functions of your iPhone by voice, and more reliably and more simply than anyone has done before. Many car makers and electronic companies have released voice control software over the last several years, but often it works poorly and it may not work at all when you upgrade your phone.
One Simple Plug Unlocks iPhone Features On Your Radio
Once we have installed one of these new radios in your vehicle, you simply plug in your lightning cable to the USB port we install in your car, and the CarPlay software launches. You can now control your music, make and receive phone calls, access your phonebook, send and receive text messages, and use Apple mapping safely while driving. You don’t even have to pair your phone over Bluetooth to the radio. It syncs automatically when you plug it in.
Multi-driver Car? No Problem With Apple CarPlay
What is even better, if you are a multi-driver family with more than one iPhone, you never have to worry about whose phone is paired to the radio in the car. Whichever phone is plugged into the lightning cable is the one working with your new radio, so CarPlay is accessing your music, contacts, etc., when you’re the one in the vehicle. Isn’t that great?
Here are two great videos you can watch to see CarPlay in action with a Pioneer radio:
