PbA USB Interface Adaptor For iPhone Apple Car Play
Estimated Delivery by Royal Mail (2-3 Working Days)
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
