How to Connect Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto®

Many auto manufacturers are equipping new vehicles with improved connectivity without having to use smartphone holders attached their device with a USB cord or adapter. This can cause Walla Walla drivers to take their eyes off the road to play their favorite tunes, use backup cameras, satellite navigation, and more. But with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® you can access it all safely with ease. Learn how how to set up Apple CarPlay® and how to set up Android Auto® at Underriner Honda of Walla Walla today! 

How to Setup Apple CarPlay®

When connected to your vehicle, Apple CarPlay® runs through your iPhone and takes over the audio display of your car, truck or SUV. By replacing the vehicle’s system, drivers near Tri-Cities can drive more safely as they access the phone’s applications. Here’s how to set up Apple CarPlay®:

  1. Purchase a phone mount that will allow you to glance at your device and not lose sight of the road.
  2. Install Apply CarPlay® on your phone. Go to Settings, then General, then CarPlay®.
  3. Verify Siri is enabled on your device. If necessary, go to Settings, then select Siri.
  4. Connect your iPhone to your car, truck, or SUV.
  5. For the multimedia system for your vehicle, verify that CarPlay® is on by pressing Menu. Then select General, then Apple CarPlay®, then ON.
  6. Learn how to navigate CarPlay® before driving to ensure you aren’t distracted when operating your vehicle.

How to Setup Android Auto®

The functionality of Android Auto® is similar to Apple CarPlay® and is also designed to improve driver safety. The following steps will outline how to set up Android Auto® in your vehicle:

  1. Purchase a phone mount that will allow you to glance at your device and keep your eyes on the road.
  2. Make sure your car is Bluetooth enabled then pair your device and car. If your car isn’t Bluetooth enabled, buy a Bluetooth receiver (which isn’t expensive at all) or use USB cables.
  3. Once your car and device are paired, install the Android Auto® app on your device from the Google Play store.
  4. Launch the app. Tap the menu button in the upper left corner. Select “Settings.”
  5. Scroll down a bit, then choose “Autolaunch.” Flip the toggles for your vehicle’s Bluetooth connection and Autolaunch. You also have the option of running the app in landscape mode, which may make it easier to use.
