How to use MirrorLink on an iPhone?

MirrorLink allows you to transfer whatever’s displayed on your smartphone to your car’s built-in infotainment system display. Once connected via USB cable or Bluetooth you can control a variety of apps using either a touchscreen, steering wheel-mounted controls or by voice activation.

CarPlay – Mirror iPhone to Car Screen

Apple launched CarPlay to help drivers integrate their car’s infotainment system with their mobile gadgets. It is capable to run selected iOS apps like iMessage, Maps, Audiobooks, and many more. If you have an iOS device at hand and want to play iPhone in car, you can use CarPlay to mirror iPhone to car display. To make driving safer, Apple incorporates Siri so that users can control their phones using the voice recognition tech. Like MirrorLink, CarPlay projects your screen to the dashboard and utilizes your car audio system for projecting the incoming sound. AndroidAuto and Apple CarPlay offer similar ‘smartphone mirroring’ functionality. Compatible apps include Facebook, Twitter and Spotify. There are a host of others available, too, for social media, music, radio, podcasts, weather forecasts and navigation. There are even apps that help you find the nearest petrol station or parking space. The availability of apps varies from country to country. And remember that not every app on your phone will be compatible with MirrorLink, so you may need to download additional apps for certain features that you want to use via MirrorLink.

Let’s take a look at how to mirror iPhone to car screen.

  1. Make sure that your car is supported with CarPlay and you are in the place that supports CarPlay.
  2. Please make sure you have an iPhone 5 or later to use CarPlay. Now please enable the Siri voice control on your device. Simply go to “Settings” > “Siri & Search” and turn it on.
  3. For wired connection, please plug your iPhone into the USB port of the car with a smartphone or CarPlay icon. Suppose you still cannot see the CarPlay Home screen, you can tap the CarPlay logo on your car’s display.
  4. For wireless connection, if your car is compatible with wireless CarPlay, you can press and hold the Voice Control button on the steering wheel to set up CarPlay. Or turn on the Bluetooth pairing mode on your phone. Afterwards, open your iPhone, proceed to “Settings” > “General” > “CarPlay” and then choose your car.
  5. Run your car while using it.
  6. Now you can either press and hold the “Voice Control” button from your steering wheel or touch and hold the Home button in CarPlay on the Car’s touch screen to activate Siri.
