CarPlay By Apple For In-Car Media
At the Geneva Auto Show this week Apple is showing off CarPlay, it’s in-car media center powered by your iOS device. Ferrari, Mercedes, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar and Volvo are the first manufacturers to include the system but BMW, Ford, General Motors, Kia, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota are expected in the future.
CarPlay is compatible with the iPhone 5 and up and provides Siri voice navigation. Third party apps will be supported as well as the standard contacts, voicemail, notifications, maps and music.
With recent news of Ford abandoning their partnership with Microsoft and many car navigation systems a cluttered mess, Apple has a great opportunity to simplify your automobile’s interface.
