VW Apple CarPlay

Android is just half the equation when talking smartphones, and if you’re one of Chicago’s many loyal iPhone users, we have a solution for you as well. VW Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use an iPhone in the car. CarPlay is designed to take the things an Des Plaines driver would want to do in the car and put them right on the vehicle’s built-in display, including:

  • Making calls
  • Sending and receiving messages
  • Listening to music
  • Getting directions
  • Using Siri to answer all of your questions

If you’re like us, it’s tough to go too long without checking your iPhone, and VW Car-Net App-Connect helps to ensure you won’t have to. New Volkswagen vehicles are equipped with Apple CarPlay to bring the iPhone, the App Store, and the Apple experience to the dash of your vehicle. Apple CarPlay is now found on over 200 different models, and you’ll find many of them here at The Autobarn Volkswagen of Mt. Prospect.
