Geneva Auto Show 2014: Volvo shows how Apple CarPlay works
After Apple announced its plans of an automobile-focused interface, the CarPlay, Volvo has released a video showing the iPhone-run system at work on the sidelines of the Geneva Auto Show 2014. Over a dozen car manufacturers have already tied up with Apple for the in-car system.
You can watch the Volvo with Apple dashboard below:
Besides Volvo, Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz will showcase their CarPlay compatible gadgetry at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, while Jaguar, Hyundai and Honda will show Apple-run infotainment systems later this year.
BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Kia, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Citroen, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota are also on the list of carmakers who have signed up for the Apple CarPlay technology.
CarPlay syncs with your iPhone to make the car's infotainment system smarter and safer. It can read and write messages for you with Siri's assistance, make and receive calls and play music. On compatible infotainment systems, CarPlay recreates part of the iOS interface on the screen to let you stream voice-guided navigation through Apple Maps, browse through album art, make conference calls and even browse the Internet and access apps.
