What is Apple CarPlay?

Cars with Apple CarPlay allow Lakewood drivers to stay connected on the go. Apple CarPlay apps provide turn-by-turn directions, allows you to make phone calls, listen to music, and send or receive text messages without having to take your eyes off the road or your hands or off the steering wheel. As safety is of uppermost importance, Apple CarPlay keeps you connected and entertained without taking your attention away from the road away. 

How to Install Apple CarPlay

Eager to know how to set up Apple CarPlay? Follow these steps below:

  1. First, you’ll want to make sure that your Genesis supports Apple CarPlay. Also, be sure that you’re in a location where Apple CarPlay technology will work because CarPlay is not available in every region. 
  2. Start your vehicle, and then, check to see if Siri is on.
  3. Connect your iPhone to your Genesis:
    1. If your vehicle supports CarPlay via a USB cable, plug your iPhone into the USB port in your car. The USB port may be labeled with a CarPlay or smartphone icon.
    2. If you have a vehicle that supports wireless CarPlay, press and hold the voice-command button on the steering wheel. Then, put your radio in either Bluetooth® or wireless mode. On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > CarPlay, then tap available cars, and select your vehicle. Refer to your owner’s manual for additional information.
