Hyundai brings Apple CarPlay to the 2015 Sonata

by Apr 17, 2014All News, Hyundai, Technical4 comments

When we review the New Genesis, we mention Hyundai was the first automaker bringing Android to their AVN system, making things easier for their owner to interact with the Genesis.

Based on Hyundai design principles, they are now bringing Apple CarPlay to the brand new 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Now all iPhone users with the models 5s, 5c and 5 running the latest version of iOS 7 will be able to experience features such as the ability to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages as well as Siri functions thanks to a button on the steering wheel.

Hyundai is now joining the steps of luxury car manufactures such as  Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Ferrari making the system available among all car owners who can’t afford those luxurious brands.

      well maybe Hyundai update the currents trims with a new navi system including this, but unfortunately, if you have the car, I think you will need to change it (the navi system)
