Wireless smartphone integration

This is an example of wireless Apple CarPlay. This version removes the need for a messy USB cord and allows drivers to keep their phone in their pocket or neatly charging on a wireless charge pad.

Smartphone integration in new vehicles has graduated from Bluetooth’s calling and media streaming to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto ’s immersive platforms. These solutions integrate a phone seamlessly into a vehicle’s infotainment system. Drivers and passengers can send and receive texts via voice command, listen to music and podcasts, follow turn-by-turn directions, or interact with a host of applications through the onboard display.

The most cutting-edge iterations of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are wireless, which is handy if your vehicle also features wireless device charging. Wireless integration means reduced cord clutter and instant access to these systems the moment you start the vehicle. Though most automakers bundle both systems, some only offer Apple CarPlay, so do your research if you use an Android device.
