Safe, simple and easy to use, Apple’s CarPlay technology allows iPhone users to use their devices hands-free while they drive.

Never again reach for your iPhone with one hand while holding the steering wheel with the other. Nor will you have to fiddle with a button panel while cruising or sitting in traffic. CarPlay intuitively emulates the iPhone with a convenient dashboard home screen.

There are no connection apps to download – all you need is your iPhone and a charging cable. Simply plug the phone’s cable into a USB port or press the green icon on your vehicle’s touch screen to launch. Voila!

To summon Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant, press the Voice command button on the steering wheel. To talk, press the Home button on the touch screen. Use the touchscreen to make calls, text, get news, weather and music and do a host of other things, such as book reservations or look up movie schedules. With CarPlay’s exceptional audio, there’s never been a better way to access streaming music and podcasts.

According to the CDC, approximately 9 people are killed and 1,000 people are injured every day in crashes that are attributed to texting or otherwise distracted driving.

Compared to other built-in infotainment packages, however, CarPlay has been found to be one of the least distracting. While it’s compatible with both new and older iPhone models, CarPlay has also caught on with Android users, and manufacturers are stepping up to meet demand.

There is also a version of Apple CarPlay for Android mobile devices.
CarPlay is present in many makes and models, including Apple CarPlay for Chevy.

In the Chevy Traverse, CarPlay comes as a standard infotainment feature with a 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen.

The Chevy Traverse is a passenger-friendly SUV, and CarPlay, with its streaming music and other downloadable entertainment apps, keeps Traverse riders pleasantly engaged. Most of all, this mid-sized crossover is very much a family car. When children fill the passenger seats of your Chevy Traverse for family outings or school drop-offs, CarPlay has infotainment options to make the journey more enjoyable and stress-free for all.
