1. Apple Maps

Apple CarPlay also functions as an advanced navigation system, using Apple Maps to provide you with step-by-step directions to any and all destinations. With a full-screen display of your map, along with easy to follow voice navigation, getting lost will be a thing of the past. Apple maps will also predict where you are going based on your texts, email, contacts, calendar, and past destinations, helping you stay on task and on schedule.

2. Phone

Access your phone through Apple CarPlay, making and accepting phone calls safely while driving. You can also have Siri make a call for you, allowing you to call up a friend without ever taking your eyes of the road.

3. Messages

Text messages are one of the primary causes of distracted driving. The bing or vibration that signals the arrival of a new text is enough for even the most disciplined driver’s eyes to veer away from the road and towards their phone. Apple CarPlay allows for integration with your Messages app, with Siri reading text messages aloud to you while also allowing you to dictate texts while driving. Drive safer and smarter with Apple CarPlay and the Messages app.

4. Apple Music

Access all of your music from your personal iTunes library or from your Apple Music subscription with the Music app. The app allows you to search for existing or new music by artist, album, or song, either through the touchscreen or through Siri.

5. Podcasts

No matter your passion, be it comedy, sports, politics, history, or something else entirely, there is a podcast for you. Listen and be entertained by the exciting discussions and compelling storytelling found in the seemingly endless Apple library of podcasts.

6. Spotify

Nearly 170 million people use Spotify to listen to their favorite music, and Apple CarPlay allows you to access your complete Spotify library while on the go. Search through the Spotify library, listen to playlists, and much more!
