What is Apple CarPlay®?

2021 Jeep Gladiator Interior

One of the greatest benefits of getting behind the wheel of one of our new vehicles is all of the modern technology you get. From advanced safety features to convenient comfort features, there’s a lot to appreciate about a new Chrysler or Jeep vehicle. More importantly, most of our new vehicles include Uconnect® technology which features Apple CarPlay® compatibility. Apple CarPlay® allows you to fully integrate your iPhone® with your vehicle’s built-in display while driving around Louisville.

It allows you to better focus on the road while seamlessly enjoying all of the features on your iPhone® like making and receiving calls and text messages, listen to music, get directions, and much more. To learn more about our cars with Apple CarPlay®, you can visit Cross Chrysler Jeep FIAT for more information. In the meantime, we’ll go over how to set up Apple CarPlay® and go over some of the Apple CarPlay® apps!

How to Set Up Apple CarPlay®

If you’re looking for cars with Apple CarPlay®, we recommend checking out our inventory of vehicles that include Uconnect® technology. After you’ve found a car with Apple CarPlay®, you’re probably wondering how to set it up and fortunately, it’s quite easy to do. Without further hesitation, here’s how to set up Apple CarPlay® in your vehicle with Uconnect®:

  1. Confirm that Apple CarPlay® is available on your vehicle and device. Apple CarPlay® isn’t available on every vehicle with Uconnect® or in every region, so make sure it’s supported.
  2. Turn on your vehicle and make sure the accessories are on or the vehicle is running.
  3. Plug your iPhone® into the USB port of your vehicle that supports Apple CarPlay®. This usually works best with an Apple-certified cord.
  4. If the Apple CarPlay® home screen doesn’t automatically pop up, select the Apple CarPlay® logo on your Uconnect® screen.
  5. The process to set up Apple CarPlay® is now complete and you have access to Siri® via your voice recognition button!

Apple CarPlay® Apps

After you’ve set up Apple CarPlay®, you’ll have access to a plethora of apps to stay connected on your Lexington adventures. Some of the Apple CarPlay® apps include:

  • Apple Maps
  • iHeartRadio
  • Spotify
  • Pandora
  • NPR One
  • SpotHero
  • WhatsApp
  • Waze
  • And more!

You no longer have to worry about being disconnected and bored on La Grange road trips when you’re in an Apple CarPlay® compatible vehicle.
