What can you do With Apple CarPlay?
What is Apple CarPlay? And what can you do with Apple CarPlay? Apple CarPlay is a smarter and safer way to use your iPhone in the car. It takes the functions you want to perform with your iPhone while driving and puts them into your Honda’s built-in display. You can access directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music.
Siri Voice Control
CarPlay features Siri voice control that is specially designed for driving scenarios. It works with your Honda’s controls, and the apps have been reconfigured for your individually equipped Honda so you can use them while your eyes stay on the road.
Use Apple Maps
You can use apple maps with your Honda Apple CarPlay equipped vehicle. Use the turn-by-turn directions to guide you to your destination and let the Apple Maps help you choose different routes, search for gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops, and more.
Making and Receiving Calls
You can use the Siri voice controls to ask your Apple CarPlay vehicle to call a specific number or entry in your phone book. You can make outgoing calls, and even listen to voicemail. It’s one more way that Honda let’s you stay as connected as possible while out on the road.
Messages with Apple CarPlay
Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages so you never have to look at your phone while driving. CarPlay can also play audio messages too. This way, you can hear your friends in their own voices.
Music with Apple CarPlay
You can access all of your tunes with Honda vehicles that have Apple CarPlay. Use the Apple music app to access your library, or use other audio apps and sync them with your display. Plus, with Siri, you can request songs without having to take your eyes off of the road.
