Description

This product is an absolute game changer. Android GPS head units are the most popular on the market now and iPhone customers have been asking how they can cable link their phone to an Android unit and expect it to work. As competitors, there was nothing available to make the compatibility. Now, there is! Our new PbA USB dongle and Phone Link App will be able to provide customers with iPhone's, the unique Apple Car Play functionality.

 

CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them on your car’s built-in display. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road. Just connect your iPhone and go. You can also use steering wheel controls.

 

Which iPhone models are compatible with Apple CarPlay?

CarPlay is compatible with all iPhones equipped with a lightning connector – which basically means anything from an iPhone 5 up, but specifically includes iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

 

What apps and features does Apple CarPlay run?

Siri is the voice assistance feature offered by the iPhone, and when connected to CarPlay it allows you to find contact numbers, listen to voicemails and will read out messages. You can also dictate responses and send them without taking your hands off the wheel. Siri also gives you access to iTunes for music, podcasts and radio, as well as various third-party apps like Spotify, Tune In Radio and Deezer. Navigation is catered for with Apple mapping, giving you turn-by-turn directions, traffic conditions and an ETA. Again, you can use Siri to help plan journeys.

 

So, how does this all work?

Our product here is a USB interface adaptor. You can plug this directly into the USB slot on the rear our exclusive PbA Android GPS head unit (or with the OTG USB extension cable) and then you will need an Official Apple lightning connector to USB cable (1m or shorter recommended - Not Supplied). This then gets plugged into our USB interface adaptor. We will also provide you with the Android Phone Link APK App to install onto your PbA head unit. You then install the App and then enter into it. There you will see your CarPlay interface.

 

PLEASE NOTE: This item will only work with our PbA Android GPS head units.

screen-shot-of-1024x600.png

 

Your home screen here is easily laid out and also shows your all the information linked to your phone, such as the signal strength and data connection. In the bottom left hand corner you will notice the HOME button. Just like your phone, one press takes you home and a long press lets you talk to Siri.

 

navigation-1024x600.png

 

Use Apple's online Maps to navigate your way around. Siri will provide instructions for you. Here you have an online world map available. Just like the App on your phone, it's all displayed here on your head units screen.

 

calls-1024x600.png

 

You will have your full phone book here and you can even ask Siri to call the person you want too. All arranged exactly like it is on your phone.

You can manually do things on here too. You don't always need Siri. You can manually key tone in a number if you like.

Your Apple Music can be played directly and also, the menu will display everything just as it is on your phone. Making it already, very familiar.

 

music-1024x600.png

 

Play the music from your iPhone's Music App directly on the head unit. Your phone will charge whilst this is playing too. Select to shuffle or even ask Siri to play one of your tracks? "Siri, play Gold Digger by Kanye West"

Siri is there to help. You can ask it what you like but when in Car Play mode, Siri will be set up to know you are in the car and driving so everything should be based around the journey.

If you've got certain 3rd Party Apps on your phone, they may appear on here too. Tune In Radio is very good App which uses the radio via a data connection and you can listen to many stations digitally.

Overcast is another 3rd party App that can be displayed on the Car Play menu. A very popular App to listen to Podcasts.

Amazon Music, Deezer, Google Play Music and Spotify are all supported 3rd party Apps on the Car Play menu. You can shuffle and view all your playlists directly on the unit.

From that list, select your song and then it plays. Nice and easy.

Here is the Deezer App showing you the genre types. You'll need an account with Deezer but if this is the App you use, then you will know all about that.

Most items are usually delivered within 2-3 working days (Saturday is NOT counted as a working day). However, please be aware that certain items are held for us by our suppliers and so these items will take approximately 4-6 working days to be delivered. Please make sure you check the estimated delivery date within the listing.

We offer all items with FREE ECONOMY UK MAINLAND DELIVERY (Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Isle Of Man, Isle Of Scilly, Isle Of Wight, Jersey and Guernsey are not eligible for free delivery unless the item can be sent in the post). If you choose the free delivery, the item will be sent via the most cost effective means possible.

Free delivery is only for UK mainland. Unfortunately, customers in remote areas will have a surcharge postage cost added at the checkout.

EU DELIVERIES

As the UK has now left the EU, any items shipped from our UK warehouse will most likely require customs (duty & VAT) to receive the item. We will include the eBay IOSS number and show VAT paid (as it does on the eBay site). Please note, we have absolutely no control over customs processing/delays/fees. We ask buyers to be patient and if any action is required from yourselves to get it through customs, then you contact the shipping company ASAP to avoid any returns (as original postage cannot be credited back).

We do have a EU warehouse and if we can, we will try and use that for your delivery. This is not always possible but if we can, then we will as it will mean there is no customs and duty.

NON-EU DELIVERIES

For customers in non-EU countries, we find it is quicker and cheaper to actually send out our products direct from our manufacturing factory in CPR. This works out better value for the customer because the shipping cost is about 40% cheaper and it is about 5 days quicker in transit also. If you are unhappy with this, then you will need to let us know at the point of order but as it is cheaper and quicker, we doubt there will be an issue as we are well versed in export.

Some items are only in our UK warehouse, so will have to be dispatched from there. ). Please note, we have absolutely no control over customs processing/delays/fees. We ask buyers to be patient and if any action is required from yourselves to get it through customs, then you contact the shipping company ASAP to avoid any returns (as original postage cannot be credited back).
