Mobile Audio Concepts are Melbourne’s Apple CarPlay experts. We have a wide range of aftermarket replacement head units from the leading brands, and we also offer hide-away OEM integration Apple CarPlay modules designed to work with your factory infotainment screen and electrical system.
When Apple’s CarPlay in-car technology was first released in 2014, it was a welcome relief for iPhone users, and it also set the stage for the introduction of Google’s Android Auto. Car stereo/infotainment systems have come a long way over the last decade, but they are still plagued with confusing design layouts, slow processing speeds, and outdated software. Apple CarPlay offers a solution to some of these issues. It has the latest software, it responds quickly to commands, and its simple design and iPhone-style user interface makes it easy to use for iPhone users.
As expected, Apple CarPlay can only be used by people who have an iPhone. However, not all iPhones are compatible; CarPlay works with the ones that have been produced from the iPhone 5 onwards. These include iPhone 5s, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and the iPhone 11/11 Pro.
Using your Lightning cable, you can plug your iPhone into your car’s stereo via a USB port that we add to the vehicle. You then press/select the CarPlay function on your infotainment screen. If your car has wireless CarPlay, you won’t need to use the Lightning cable; your iPhone will need to be paired with the car’s system wirelessly. Once connected to your compatible car stereo, CarPlay lets you control car-related apps via Siri voice control or from the touchscreen or the OEM controls. Apple CarPlay is the smart way to use your phone while you drive.
Apple CarPlay is designed to make it safe and easy to use your iPhone in your car. Apple calls it “the ultimate copilot”. Thanks to Siri, you can legally make and receive phone calls and even write and reply to text messages just by using voice commands. Siri has advanced voice recognition, and it is also designed to use many of the voice commands that you use on your iPhone. You can say goodbye to expensive fines and demerit points for talking or texting while driving.
Apple CarPlay is more than just a phone calls / text messaging system. The list of apps supported by Apple CarPlay is extensive and ever growing. It includes the likes of Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze maps, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Tidal, Amazon Music & many more.
Concerned parents especially love Apple CarPlay knowing their children have a safe and legal way to use their phone, navigate and listen to music when driving. Here are some key benefits that you get with CarPlay:
