Apple CarPlay & Android Auto Installation San Diego
How connected are your phone and your car stereo? If the answer involves auxiliary cables, you’re missing out on have the point of being a driver in the 21st century! With a simple upgrade of your stereo head unit, you can literally make your dashboard receiver an extension of your smartphone, shifting your hands and all your attention to your car. Even if your stereo receiver is BlueTooth and USB compatible, you’re using only a fraction of the technology now available. Apple CarPlay Receivers and Android Auto Receivers turn your dashboard into a touchscreen loaded with your favorite apps, and allows you to access them by voice command!
The limits of Bluetooth compatible receivers
Bluetooth-equipped receivers and smartphones have teen years of history together, and its value in turning your car stereo into a speakerphone remains invaluable. However, who calls anymore? You’re more likely to get texts while driving. If you’re an iPhone user, a compatible Apple CarPlay head unit gives you access to your phone’s messaging apps. And if you have an Android phone, an Android Auto installation does the same.
The limits of USB connectivity
Depending on how sophisticated your USB compatible receiver is, the ability to connect your phone directly to your car stereo lets you do things like navigate your digital music library through the controls on your dashboard receiver. Apple CarPlay installation can take the concept much further: when you connect via USB, you gain access to your internet subscription apps, podcasts, audiobooks, and more. If anything, Android Auto receivers allow you access a broader range of content. Basically, if there’s something online you’d like to listen to or interact with, you’ll be able to do it through your car’s controls.
Apple CarPlay Receivers
Compatible with the updated iOS operating system found on all iPhones, Apple CarPlay head units may connect to a phone on its own terms, so that the touch screen controller effectively becomes an extension of your iPhone screen. It makes available select apps — basically those that are safe enough to use while driving. The idea is to make accessing your apps as hands-free as possible, and part of that is accomplished by the fact Apple CarPlay receivers bring Siri vice assistant to your car audio system. Siri reads directions to you when you use the free maps app for hands-free GPS navigation, reads iMessages aloud when you receive them, and offers to let you dictate a reply.
Android Auto Receivers
Comparable to Apple CarPlay receivers, head units compatible with Android Auto turn touch screen displays into an Android operating system when you connect via USB, complete with the vast array of voice commands understood by Google Assistant, and hands-free versions of myriad messaging apps. You can ask for directions from Google Maps or Waze, and put your unlimited data plan to use finding tunes, podcasts, and audiobooks — whatever you’d be listening anyway if you weren’t driving.
