Can I Connect A Smartphone To My Older Car?

In today's digital age, connecting our smartphones to our cars is not just a convenience; it's a necessity. But what if you have a car thats a decade (or more) old? The good news is, yes, you can connect your smartphone to your older car. Here's how, and why.

Understanding The ISS Automotive SmartAuto System

The SmartAuto System from ISS Automotive is a lifesaver for those with cars produced in the last decade or so. Whether you have an Android or iPhone, this system makes it possible to integrate your phone with your car's factory stereo. It works with many car brands, including Buick, GMC, Nissan, Audi, Cadillac, and Chevy.

Benefits Of Smartphone Connectivity

  1. Distraction-Free Driving: With hands-free functionality, you can take calls, send messages using voice-to-text, and use digital assistants like Alexa or Siri. This keeps you focused on the road and less tempted to look at your phone.

  2. Familiar Interface: When your smartphone is integrated with your car’s system, you’ll see a familiar interface on the infotainment screen. This makes navigation and accessing apps easier and less distracting.

  3. Customized Music Library: Your smartphone is your personal entertainment hub. With SmartAuto, you can access your unique collection of music, podcasts, and audiobooks, as well as streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music.

  4. Enhanced Driving Apps: Apps designed for parking assistance, weather updates, or traffic information work best when synced with your car's system.

  5. Seamless Navigation: Navigation tools like Google Maps and Apple Maps provide clear directions through your car’s speakers, allowing you to concentrate on driving.

Compatibility And Installation

SmartAuto is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This means, no matter what phone you use, you can enjoy seamless connectivity. The system is designed to be user-friendly and is a plug-and-play product - you don’t need advanced tools or skills to install it.
