HOW TO USE CARPLAY IN YOUR SCANIA TRUCK?
The Swedish giant has added to this model a 7-inch screen, with a USB port to facilitate the connection of the cell phone to the vehicle interface. Thus, you should have an iPhone necessarily embedding the iOS 7.1 version at least. Without this, unfortunately, you can not enjoy Carplay. The iPhone will be connected to the socket of the Scania Truck via an original cable. To do this, use your phone's charger by plugging one end to the charging end and the other to the USB power supply of the Scania. And if you're more of a wireless person, you can always use Bluetooth to connect the iPhone to the truck. That's all you need to get Carplay functionality in your Scania.
