CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. And now with an all‑new CarPlay Dashboard that helps you with tunes, turns and Siri suggestions, a Calendar app that lets you view and manage your day, and maps that reveal more of what’s around you, getting there just got a whole lot easier. And a lot more fun.
CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.
The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts and calendars. And now with a more detailed map, turn‑by‑turn spoken directions and immersive 3D experiences, it’s easier than ever to get where you need to go. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favourite restaurant or looking for nearby petrol stations.
Make calls, return missed calls and listen to voicemail. Siri can help you do all of these things. All you have to do is ask.
Siri can read, reply and send text messages for you, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. Just say “Siri, tell Lynne I’ll be there in 20 minutes”, and it’s done. CarPlay can also play audio messages through the car’s speakers.
Access all your content from your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car’s built‑in controls. Search by artist, album or song. See what’s playing and what’s up next. You can ask Siri to play your favourite song by Arcade Fire, act as your personal DJ or stream one of more than 100,000 live radio stations.
A new Calendar app gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you’re on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tap to get directions or dial in, using your car’s speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favourite audio, messaging and voice apps. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay. You can personalise your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone.
OUR EMPIRICAL REVERSE CAMERA KITS ARE OUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT. We think about the kit and the installation so that you don’t have to. It’s little things like shielded camera cable so you don’t lose DAB / Satellite Radio reception, a small 8mm camera connection plug so that no large plugs or chokes need to be ran through tight tailgate conduits.
When we first create a kit, rather than removing a section of the manufacturers tape on a wiring loom to re route a radio or screen cable to the camera interface, we will get a new extension cable manufactured for the kit. It’s these extra touches that makes our kits what they are!
