(VIDEO) Geneva 2014 : Apple CarPlay arrives at Volvo and Mercedes!
On the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, we discovered the Apple Carplay, an infotainment system designed by Apple, it is presented in the new Mercedes C-Class and the Volvo XC90 expected by year-end.
This unprecedented platform offers a new "in-car experience" with a touch screen on which you can find the traditional iPhone functions like calls, messages or music, but also download other apps.
Connection with your iPhone (5 series) is made via a jack – for a more high-speed and reliable connection- operation could not be more intuitive since it is identical to your phone, the car is now designed on the same model!
Also more evolutive, the navigation system is now Google Maps with automatic updates.
Finally, Apple Carplay provides more safety on the road, thanks to Siri you can operate the functions vocally and even reply to your messages while keeping your eyes on the road.
Here are the first demonstrations of this new operating system that will undeniably arrive in many cars... For Mercedes, the C-class paves the way with the Apple Carplay while Volvo has already announced that the technology will be available soon on all models of the range, thanks to its integration into the modular platform SPA - Scalable Product Architecture.
