Install a CarPlay module

If your car is not compatible with CarPlay and your budget does not allow you to install a car radio compatible with this technology, you can simply order a CarPlay module.

This is a device that must be connected to the car radio (tutorials and diagrams provided) to enjoy all the features offered by the Apple CarPlay system via a USB cable or wirelessly. Feel free to connect the iPhone with the car radio via WiFi or using an original cable.

Installing a CarPlay compatible car radio
