How Apple CarPlay & Android Auto Keep You Connected in Your INFINITI
We know that staying connected to your world is so important, even when you’re driving. Whether it’s your daily commute to work, running errands or going on trips for pleasure, the INFINITI luxury cars and SUVs let you do just that whether you’re on team iPhone or prefer an Android smartphone.
That’s because all new INFINITI models come standard with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. This means that you can use your smartphone in a variety of ways by connecting it to your vehicle’s infotainment system.
INFINITI Apple CarPlay
Apple CarPlay can perform many functions in your INFINITI. For starters, you can sync your Apple Music library with your audio apps by using the built-in controls to allow you to listen to your favorite songs on the road.
With Apple CarPlay, you also have access to Siri to allow for voice commands. With Siri, you can:
- Make calls hands free
- Return calls you missed
- Listen to your voicemail messages
- Read, reply & send text messages
Apple Maps with 3D building graphics & a real-time premium traffic alert system can also be connected to your INFINITI via your iPhone. This means it can predict your destination by way of your phone’s calendar, contacts & other indicators. There’s also a Nearby feature that allows you to find what you need in just a tap including gas, parking, restaurants & more. The in-vehicle maps can be easily updated via Wi-Fi.
INFINITI Android Auto
With Android Auto, you can do a lot of the same functions in your INFINITI that Apple CarPlay lets you. Except you’ll be able to do it from a compatible Android smartphone from a variety of carriers using that operating system.
These functions include:
- Google Maps for voice-guided navigation, live traffic info, lane guidance & more
- Google Play Music for audio streaming of over 40 million songs via on-demand access
- Making calls & sending text messages
- Returning calls & responding to text messages
- Listening to your voicemail messages
- Accessing your music library & popular 3rd-party apps
Information from both Apple CarPlay & Android Auto will be displayed on the infotainment system screen in the center of your dashboard. For 2020 models or later with the next-generation INFINITI InTouch dual-screen infotainment system, information will display on both screens depending on what functions you’re using.
