At Ralph’s Radio, we work hard to always offer our clients the best products on the market. With Apple making some of the greatest pieces of technology, we were thrilled when they launched CarPlay. Apple CarPlay is specifically designed for iPhone users (with an iPhone 5 and newer) to give them the capability of using many of their apps while driving.
If you spend a lot of time in the car, I’m sure you’ve thought, “Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to accomplish tasks and do the things I enjoy while I’m driving?” Now you can! CarPlay is software that is available with many of the car stereo units we sell at Ralph’s Radio.
Safety Remains The Priority
CarPlay is designed so you can use your smartphone while driving, yet keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Siri takes over the work so all you have to do is literally “tell” her what to do. It is all done through voice control. CarPlay is also set up to work with your vehicle’s controls, such as your touchscreen radio, buttons and knobs. It’s as simple as it gets!
Incredible Features of CarPlay
Not only does CarPlay allow you to send and receive texts, make phone calls and listen to your music library, it also has an incredible Maps feature. With the Maps app, you’ll get turn-by-turn directions that will put you right at your destination. Even better, it comes with real-time traffic updates that always stay current. This means if you’re traveling and an accident happens on your route, Maps will automatically reroute you to avoid the traffic. Along with real-time traffic, CarPlay itself constantly remains up-to-date with each and every iOS update from Apple.
Other Compatible Apps With Apple CarPlay
CarPlay also works with many of your other iPhone apps. You’ll be able to use Spotify, Audiobooks, Podcasts, Stitcher and more while you drive.
This software really does set you up for success so you can multi-task and enjoy your car rides in a safe way. You’ll even be able to set reminders while you drive so you never forget another thing on your to-do list.
