We are thrilled to tell you about Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Apple designed CarPlay for iPhone users to stay connected and continue using a phone’s main functions while driving. Google did the same by creating Android Auto for Android users. Both are incredible systems that are so simple to use and navigate.
How CarPlay and Android Auto Work
If you have an iPhone 5 or above (running iOS 7.1 or later) or an Android phone running 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher, your phone is compatible with these systems. CarPlay and Android Auto are both software that can only be used with specific radios. Bay Area Audio Visions offers many options when it comes to choosing a radio that will give you access to these systems in your car.
After we install the radio in your vehicle, you simply plug your smartphone into the cable provided and the software is active. Everything from here on out is done through voice control, so your eyes stay on the road and your hands remain on the wheel.

Messages, Phone Calls, Music and More
With Carplay and Android Auto, you’ll be able to continue using your most-loved apps while driving. Some of these include messages, phone calls, music and maps. Imagine being able to send and receive texts while driving without putting anyone in danger! By tapping the messages app that is now on your radio screen, you can have your texts read to you or dictate a text to send over voice control. You can also prompt the radio to call someone in your contacts or to listen to a voicemail. All of your favorite music and podcasts are readily available to be played. The maps app will even give you turn-by-turn directions with real-time traffic updates that will put you at your destination right on time.
