What’s the Apple CarPlay?
Available on select cars, CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them right on your car’s built-in display. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road. Just connect your iPhone and go.~Apple.com
This is as an option in latest Audi models, but what if I have 2014 or older Audi with MMI 3G unit? Unfortunately when those cars has been manufactured there was no option to equip car with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
Android Auto takes the features you love about your Android-powered smartphone and puts them directly in your car’s dashboard. Nifty, huh? It displays information on a familiar, easy-to-use interface with cards you can swipe out of the way, legible menus, and large icons.~Digitaltrends.com
For some time if you wanted Apple CarPlay or Android Auto you had to buy newest, more expensive car with additional modules to work with above systems.
We would love to present you solution, where you can still keep your lovely car and expand their features by installing our module.
