What is Apple Apple CarPlay?

 

Available on select FCA US vehicles, Apple CarPlay® is a smarter way to use your iPhone® in the vehicle. CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them right on your vehicle'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.

 1. Make sure that CarPlay is supported on your vehicle or Uconnect® system.

2. Plug your iPhone in to the CarPlay USB port using an apple certified cord. If      the CarPlay home screen doesn't appear, select the CarPlay logo on your          Uconnect touchscreen.
3. Make sure that your vehicle is running.
4. Ask Siri® for what you need. You can do this as follows:

  • Press and hold the Voice Recognition button on your steering wheel. Then ask for what you need.

•    A Compatible Android Smartphone with Android 5.0, Lollipop

•    Ensure you meet all the compatibility requirements

•    Turn on the vehicle and remain parked

    Connect your smartphone to the vehicle with a USB cable

    When you are finished with the smartphone instructions, check the vehicle's 

      touchscreen and select the Andriod Auto icon if it hasn't already loaded

How much data does Android Auto use?

Controlling your apps through Android Auto does not increase the amount of data they use. For example, streaming music for one hour through Android Auto uses the same data as one hour of music streaming normally on your Android smartphone.


Will it drain my battery quickly?

When you connect your smartphone to run Android Auto, your battery receives power through your vehicle's USB port. If your smartphone requires more power than the USB connection can give it, you may notice some battery drain. If your smartphone is losing battery when connected, consider upgrading your USB cable or close apps that are using a lot of power.
