5 Reasons To Add Apple CarPlay® To Your Factory Audio System

Having a seamless transition between your iPhone and your car's infotainment system is a BIG plus. There's nothing more aggravating than loosing connectivity while you're on the road.

So, what can you do when your vehicle's factory stereo is not compatible with your iPhone? ISS Automotive has the fix: The SmartAuto Smartphone Integration System.

Connecting your iPhone to your infotainment hub is a must for several reasons:

1. Personalized Music Library 

iPhones are more than just phones; they're personal media hubs. Your iPhone likely holds a tailored collection of songs, podcasts, and audiobooks. With the SmartAuto system, you can enjoy your curated content without depending on inconsistent radio stations or investing in additional music platforms or devices. You can also access streaming platforms like Audible, Spotify, or Apple Music with ease. Rock on.

2. Navigation Assistance

Nav apps like Apple Maps or Google Maps provide turn-by-turn directions and real-time traffic updates. Connecting an iPhone ensures that these navigation prompts are broadcasted over the car's speakers, making it easier to follow without diverting attention from the road.

3. No Distracted Driving

Hands-free connectivity means safer driving. With iPhone integration, you can answer calls hands-free, use voice-to-text for messaging, or employ Siri to manage various tasks. This safe communication reduces the temptation of taking your eyes off the road to check the phone while driving.

4. Improved Interface

When you integrate your iPhone with the infotainment screen, you'll see the familiar iPhone CarPlay interface reflected on the infotainment system screen. The result is a familiar and easy-to-navigate system that creates minimal distraction. iPhone remembers user preferences, so frequently visited destinations or the most-played songs are at your fingertips.

5. Specialized Apps

Beyond just music and navigation, there are a variety of apps that are meant to enhance the driving experience. Using these apps without connecting to your factory system just isn't the same. Apps that help you find parking spaces or receive real-time weather and traffic updates are better when they're used through your infotainment hub.
