    Apple CarPlay and Android Auto: here's what you need to know

    Apple CarPlay and Android Auto devices are very fashionable at the moment. Indeed, we see them everywhere and we hear about them in almost every car ad. But the question still arises, what is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto?

    Obviously, the names of the devices give us a good clue. These are technologies to use with our mobile devices, of course. But how exactly? And why should we use these systems and not a traditional Bluetooth device?

    In this article, we'll explore the issue a little further by taking a look at the technologies themselves and how they can be used to improve both our connectivity and our safety.

    A more direct connection between the car and your cellphone

    The first thing you need to know with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is that both technologies seek to simplify and improve nteraction with our mobile device when we're driving and simplify it as well. In other words, when we connect our phone to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, we basically have our phone on the central screen of our car.

    The icons are the same as on our phone and we see them as we see the apps on our phone’s screen. For many users, this is a more natural and instinctive way of interacting with the vehicle

    It is also possible to use our favorite apps like Google Maps or our music player. Also, the voice control system becomes that of our phone. If you have an Apple phone, you can communicate directly with SIRI. In the case of an Android phone, you can use Ok Google.

    These are just some advantages of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technologies. To find out more, contact us today at Bathurst Honda.

    Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available on the Honda Accord, Honda Civic, Honda Fit, Honda CR-V, Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot and Honda Ridgeline.
