What does Apple CarPlay do?
Drivers who utilize Apple CarPlay will tell you about how convenient and practical it is. Apple CarPlay gives you a safe way to stay connected while behind the wheel. Basic features of the system include calling, texting, navigation, and music, all of which can be accessed with voice commands. The apps on Apple CarPlay come right from your iPhone upon connecting it to your car. Other compatible apps include Audible, Pandora, WhatsApp, Spotify, NPR, MLB At Bat, Amazon Music, and iHeartRadio. When you are able to access these apps without even using your hands, you can have the best driving experience possible.
