CarPlay Technology, USB Control for iPod/iPhone Devices, and Bluetooth

CarPlay is a smart interface for iPhone, which allows the driver to voice-control (via Siri) music, navigation, phone and messaging apps, thus significantly reducing driver distraction. CarPlay launches immediately upon connecting an iPhone to the receiver via USB; the familiar app icons will appear on the receiver’s touchscreen, including the home button to activate Siri voice control. This consistent, familiar interface makes the iPhone integration truly seamless. The user can navigate and control the phone apps through the receiver’s touch screen or using Siri.

The Direct USB control for iPod/iPhone devices allows users to control their iPod/iPhone directly from the receiver’s front panel without using the CarPlay feature; available functions include browsing the music library, changing songs, adjusting volume, etc.

The receiver’s Built-in Bluetooth technology allows for hands-free calling (HFP), audio streaming and player control (A2DP & AVRCP). Users are able to answer a call, redial, or manage call waiting directly from the receiver. Audio streaming allows basic control including play/pause, back/forward, and volume, to be performed from the receiver’s screen. The receiver includes an external microphone for better voice intelligibility.
