Apple CarPlay demonstrated – VIDEO

Now that it’s finally available, just what does Apple CarPlay look like, how does it interact with your phone – what are the features and function.  EFTM has CarPlay installed in a Pioneer  aftermarket system in a Mazda 2 and this video gives you an overview of just what it’s like and how it works.

    You can switch the home button to be on the right side for those of you that drive on the wrong side of the road in other countries. 😉

    In the Pioneer settings menu. Make sure you have the latest firmware. I don’t know how to post a picture here, but you should be able to find it. I actually thought you already knew about it because somebody commented on it in one of your other stories. I was just mentioning it here for your readers since it wasn’t mentioned in this one.

    Does this carplay unit allow for playing movies on the display?

      Absolutely not. That would be completely stupid and very dangerous.

      The unit does play DVDs and video CDs. I can’t find the part in the manual, but it will not play video to the screen unless the park brake is on.
