Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® have helped revolutionize the interiors of countless vehicles around the world. Hyundai was quick to adopt this technology when it was first released and the brand has extended its availability across almost all of their models. At Seidel Hyundai in Reading PA, we want to make sure you get this extraordinary technology that can make your life a lot easier and safer whenever you drive. First, however, let's review some of the fundamentals about how this technology operates.

How do Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ work?

Apple CarPlay® takes the applications on your smartphone and sends them onto your Hyundai model's infotainment display. The key advantage is that you get hands-free control along with a driver-friendly user interface. The result is that you can navigate, call or send text messages, control your music choices and more, all while keeping your eyes almost entirely on the road. Android Auto works essentially the same way.

If you're looking for a Hyundai vehicle in the Wyomissing, PA area that comes with these hands-free technology features, you can expect to find this kind of connectivity in most new and used Hyundai models.

What are some details about how Apple CarPlay® works?

The Apple iPhone is the world's most popular smartphone and has a big lead over runner-up Samsung. Apple CarPlay® helps you integrate your Apple devices seamlessly into your Hyundai touch screen. Familiar Apple features include voice control with Siri, access to your phone calls and text messages, an easy-to-use navigation system and a highly-organized way to get access to your favorite music.

Simply plug in your iPhone and your Hyundai touch screen will be updated with familiar Apple icons to give drivers from Shillington and Limerick PA an intuitive entertainment experience that's all based on the Apple operating system.

What are some details about Android Auto™?

All you have to do is integrate your Android smart devices into your Hyundai touch screen and you will revolutionize your driving experience with the Android Auto™ feature. The voice command capability is activated by means of "Talk to Google" so you can keep your hands on the wheel. It's a safe way to interact with your calls, text messages and your media.

You will also get an intuitive navigation system that will help you arrive safely at your destination. As soon as you plug your Android device into your Hyundai, simply press the Android Auto™ icon that's shown on the display screen and enjoy a satisfying transportation experience.
