The Best Way to Use Your iPhone in the Car...Powered by Pioneer:
Get Apple CarPlay for the Vehicle you Already Own
We spend hours each day using our iPhones to make calls, listen to music, get directions, and text our friends and family. If you’re like most Americans, who drive an average of 101 minutes per day, a large portion of that iPhone usage happens in your car.
So why not take the iPhone interface you already know and seamlessly integrate it into the car you already own? Well Pioneer and Apple asked the same question and their answer is the easiest, safest, and most fun way to use your iPhone in your car: Apple Car Play + a Pioneer compatible receiver.
Checkout CarPlay at work in San Francisco:
Using Apple CarPlay with your Pioneer compatible receiver couldn’t be simpler. Just plug in your iPhone to the receiver and your familiar iPhone interface will appear on the large screen in your dash. For the rest of your drive, you can simply put your phone away and safely use Siri or the now large buttons on your in-dash screen.
So let’s look at how CarPlay works for you:
Just plug in your iPhone and Apple CarPlay automatically launches. Control with a word. Or a touch. Or a twist. CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. It also works with your car's controls - knobs, buttons, or touchscreen.
Messages - No More Reading and Typing While Driving
Use Siri to send and reply to text messages
Siri will read your received texts to you so you can keep your eyes on the road where they belong
Maps - Tell Siri where you’re headed
Ask Siri for directions to specfic destinations like your local airport or have her find you the closest place to get coffee or maybe a slice of pizza
One you choose your destination you’ll get turn by turn directions, the ability to zoom in on the map, and scroll through 2D and 3D maps. You’ll also be able to view live traffic, points of interest, and different routes with real time traffic info
Music - Choose your music without ever looking at your phone
Siri is just like a good buddy on a road trip: ask her to play what you want to hear and she’ll play it
Access playlists, iTunes radio stations, and all of the music you’ve stored on your iPhone
BONUS for MUSIC LOVERS: The Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, and iHeart Radio apps are now compatible with CarPlay too!
Phone - Seamless hands free calling
Make calls, answer calls, and listen to voicemail using simple voice commands to Siri
More Apps to (Car)Play with:
Podcasts, Beats Music, iHeart Radio, MLB at Bat, Spotify, Stitcher, Rdio, and CBS radio
More apps are in development
