Using Apple CarPlay® | How To | Uconnect®


[Music playing] From work to play, your iPhone® is a big
part of your everyday life. Now, make it a part of all those miles in
between with Apple CarPlay®. CarPlay puts parts of your iPhone right on
your Uconnect® touchscreen. Send texts and make phone calls without reaching
for your iPhone. Listen to podcasts, audio books and Apple
Music. And get where you want to go with Apple Maps
while your iPhone is safely tucked-away. No extra app is needed to use CarPlay but
you will need to unlock your iPhone the first time you use CarPlay. Just plug your iPhone into your vehicle’s
USB port, then keep your eye on the Phone icon in your Uconnect touchscreen. When that icon changes to the CarPlay icon,
you’ll know your iPhone is connected. You’ll now be able to use your iPhone via
Siri® or through the Uconnect touchscreen. And there are so many ways CarPlay can make
your driving experience easier and more fun. Let’s say you want some pizza. Simply press – and hold – the VR button. You’ll hear from Siri. DRIVER: Show me the best places to get pizza
in Royal Oak, MI. VOICE OVER: Then, pick a spot, and Siri will
get you there. CarPlay also gives you access to 3rd party
audio apps you’ve downloaded to your iPhone, like Pandora or iHeartRadio. To prevent CarPlay from launching automatically
when your iPhone is connected, go to the Apps page, then Projection Manager, and uncheck
Smartphone Device Mirroring. To turn this feature back on, simply check
the box again. And, the Auto Play feature automatically plays
music from your iPhone whenever it’s connected. You can turn it on or off in the Audio category
of your Uconnect Settings. If you’re playing music on your iPhone before
you enter your CarPlay vehicle, the music will continue as soon as you connect the device
to the USB port – even if Auto Play is not enabled. One more thing – and this goes out to anyone
who plays music from their mobile device – Uconnect lets you make calls on a USB-connected phone
while a Bluetooth®-connected device simultaneously feeds audio to the system. You can be ready to take your calls and let
the music play. Keep in mind, Apple CarPlay uses your iPhone’s
data plan and some additional charges may apply. For best performance and compatibility, make
sure your iOS is up-to-date. Also, you must be in an area with cellular
coverage to use data-dependent CarPlay features. So sit back and get the most out of your iPhone…
on the go!… with Apple CarPlay and Uconnect. This video is not intended to take the place
