Apple CarPlay

Plug in your iPhone to Apple CarPlay’s USB cable to mirror CarPlay compatible apps to the car’s infotainment screen.  You can then operate some functions like phone calls, sat nav and play music on the car’s touchscreen or steering-wheel-mounted controls

You can ask Siri to play songs from your music collection or read text messages to you. You can  dictate a reply without taking your hands off the wheel.

CarPlay provides access to Apple apps such as Phone, Music, Apple Maps, iMessage, iBooks, and Podcasts, as well as third-party apps such as Spotify,  iHeartRadio, RadioPlayer,  At Bat, CBS Radio, Radio, Overcast,, and Audible.
