Maserati GranCabrio models (from 2008) are compatible with Apple Carplay. This allows you to access certain applications on your iPhone from the dashboard of your Maserati. These include iTunes, Google Maps, Waze, Siri, Coyote, Spotify Maps, Apple Music and Deezer. You also have the ability to make phone calls, send text messages, listen to audio files and use Siri voice command.

HOW TO INSTALL CARPLAY ON MASERATI GRANCABRIO ?

The installation of the module is necessary to make Carplay work in your Maserati. The module can either be installed by yourself or by a professional. You still need to have some knowledge. An installation plan is also provided with the purchase. If you don't feel capable of doing the installation yourself, then it's better to have it done by a professional, it will be safer. The box is this one. Once the hardware installation is done, your screen will become touchscreen also in Carplay mode which will facilitate the use of the latter.

To be able to do the installation, you must have a recent iPhone model (iOS 7.1 operating system at least). You must then check the activation of certain features in the settings of your iPhone. First, you need to check that Carplay and Siri are enabled in the settings. If not, activate them. Apart from that, check if the option that allows clicking on home for Siri is enabled. If it is not, you have to do it yourself. To do this, go to Siri and searches and then check ״Press home for Siri״.

Now you can connect your iPhone to your Maserati GranCabrio using your USB cable. You need to insert the cable into the USB port of the vehicle. Then you connect the other end to the charging port of your iPhone. The Maserati GranCabrio may have several USB ports. To find out which one to use you can try them all to see what works. Or, you can use the manufacturer's manual as a guide.

Once your iPhone is connected to the dashboard via the cable, you'll just have to accept the terms and conditions of use to proceed. A command window will appear asking you to authorize GranCabrio to access your iPhone when it is locked. Click on authorize to validate the option. You will then see the Carplay interface. Your system is now ready to work with this application.

HOW TO KNOW IF CARPLAY IS INSTALLED PROPERLY

If you connect your iPhone to the USB port on the dashboard and Carplay starts automatically, you will know that it is already installed. If Carplay does not start automatically, check if its icon is present in the list of applications in your Maserati's system. In case you don't find the icon in the list, check if it is enabled in the iPhone settings. If it is not, do it.

If Carplay doesn't start even though it is enabled in the iPhone settings, either the cable is defective or Carplay is not supported by the port you used. Think about changing it.
