What is CarPlay / Android Auto?

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are very convenient multimedia systems that integrate the smartphone with the car. They allow the driver to use navigation, calls or music easily and clearly. BM Cars offers the installation of suitable modules for BMW, MINI and other car manufacturers.

The two largest manufacturers of smartphone operating systems, Apple (iOS) and Google (Android), have created a dedicated suite of features for drivers. For iPhones it is CarPlay, and for Android smartphones it is Android Auto. Cars equipped with a compatible receiver connect via Bluetooth or USB to a smartphone. The on-board screen then displays key information sent from the phone. This solution, which is constantly being expanded, significantly improves driving comfort and safety. Without having to reach for the phone, the driver can listen to music/podcasts from the Internet, manage navigation or dial a number from contacts.

Voice Commands

In addition, the integration of the car with the smartphone allows all the functions of the voice assistant to be used.  Siri on iPhones and Google Assistant on Androids allows you to search the internet, check the weather, save reminders, send text messages or listen to world news. All using only voice commands and the hands-free kit in your car. CarPlay BMWCarPlay on the BMW on-board computer screen
