Sweet Sounds in Mankato is the headquarters for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We spend a lot of time in our cars these days. Therefore, it would make sense to have the technology in your vehicle that allows you to use your phone safely while you drive. Whether you use an iPhone or an Android phone, Sweet Sounds has what you need.
Get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in Your Vehicle
Apple CarPlay was designed by Apple themselves, and is compatible with any iPhone 5 or newer. Likewise, Android Auto was designed by Google and can be used with any Android phone running 5.0 (Lollipop) and newer. Wondering how it’s possible to safely use your phone while you drive? The technology is complex, but the system is so simple to use. Everything is done through voice control so your eyes stay on the road and your hands stay on the wheel.
You’ll need a stereo in your vehicle that is built to work with CarPlay and Android Auto. At Sweet Sounds, we stock the Pioneer AVH-4201NEX and the Sony XAVAX100, and soon we’ll have the Alpine iLX-107. After the stereo is installed in your vehicle, you’ll download either of the free apps, depending on whether you use an iPhone or Android phone. Then, every time you get in your vehicle, your car will automatically recognize your phone and sync to your stereo. You can use the system through Bluetooth or by plugging your phone into the cable that we will install.
Talk, Text, Find Music and More
With CarPlay and Android Auto, you can use some of your favorite apps while driving. With voice control, you can command Siri or Google to make a phone call for you. The same system will also send text messages and read incoming messages to you. You can also find and play music that has been downloaded on your phone or play tunes through apps such as Pandora and Spotify.
Do you wish it was easier to use the Maps app on your phone? CarPlay and Android Auto make it as simple as possible, giving you turn-by-turn directions and getting you to your destination on time.
MagicMount Makes a Great Addition
When using CarPlay or Android Auto, the Scosche MagicMount is a great accessory to have. The magnetic system allows you to mount your mobile device in a convenient location on your dash. The MagicMount is another great tool to help keep your eyes on the road at all times.
