We offer solutions for many of the big marques of vehicle, such as, Audi, BMW, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Land Rover, Jaguar, VW, Mercedes, Porsche and many more.
CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And with iOS 14, CarPlay introduces all-new app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay Dashboard.
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.
CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favourite audio, messaging and voice apps, along with apps in new categories, like third-party parking, EV charging and quick food-ordering 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. And app developers now have access to a variety of tools and templates that enable them to provide smarter, safer ways to use iPhone in the car.
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.
You can also use other 3rd party map apps such as Google Maps and Waze.
For music you are spoilt for choice. 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.
