• Why Carplay needs Siri

  • Carplay activation tutorial on BMW i3

After checking the chassis number of the customer, we found that it has the pre-equipment Apple Carplay and to benefit from it, simply activate it. Also, it didn't have a Wifi antenna (wireless Apple Carplay at BMW since 2016!) so you have to install it. Of course, some BMW vehicles already have the original Wifi antenna so for them, no need to install it.

  • 3 things you didn't know about Waze for Android and iPhone

    Of course, using a mobile device to navigate, listen to music or talk to contacts while driving makes a lot of sense, especially since Google and Apple have developed car-optimized experiences for users.

    Waze is useful in many ways, but compared to other navigation apps, it's often a huge difference with a community-powered reporting system. Based on reports sent in by other users on the road, Waze can find the fastest route to a particular destination and then provide instructions on how to get there.

    In general, Waze is very accurate, especially since it uses real-time traffic data collected from millions of cell phones.

    The concepts it is based on are very simple, but on the other hand, Waze is a very complex software. Today, we are going to tell you three things you probably didn't know about this application.
  • Apple Carplay will be able to control elements of your vehicle

    Since its introduction in 2016, Apple CarPlay has improved significantly over the default user interface in most cars, but many of our concerns with it and Android Auto stem from their limitations. New features like dual-screen support and third-party apps like Google Maps can help, but much of the driving experience still exists outside of Apple's control panel. Mark Gurman reported for Reuters that Apple's "IronHeart" project plans to tie features like climate control, seat positioning and even some surround sound settings to the iPhone.
