Apple CarPlay has quickly become an essential feature for many iPhone users. It gives you control over your phone’s most important apps via your car’s touchscreen, and uses voice control with Siri to dictate incoming messages.
· BMW 3 Series Wireless CarPlay means that you can use the system even if you forget your charging cable. It's shown in split screen, so other vehicle information is visible at the same time. Unfortunately, BMW charges a subscription.
· Citroen C4 Picasso A dual-screen layout on all but entry-level models give you the luxury of using CarPlay (to listen to music, for example), while sat-nav directions and other information are visible at the same time.
· Mercedes-Benz A-Class' two widescreen displays ensure that your apps are large and clear on one screen, leaving the other for additional driving information that you might need, including sat-nav directions.
· Volkswagen Golfs built since April 2017 have large, glossy touchscreens that make CarPlay brighter than ever. The optional 9.2in Discover Navigation Pro display is so clear that you'll have no excuse for missing your turning.
· Volvo XC40 Virtually everything is controlled by the portrait touchscreen, so Volvo splits the screen when CarPlay is in use. Apple apps are large and easy to read and there's also display space for the ventilation controls and Volvo's own sat-nav.
