Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility

February 12th, 2019 by

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are designed to give the user safe, easy, and legal one-touch access to their phones, enabling voice calls without the user needing to physically hold the phone or dial the number. You can also get directions, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road. Newer Mercedes-Benz models may feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, meaning that no installation is required beyond quickly and easily pairing your Apple or Android smartphone with the CarPlay system. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is one such example. By adding a Smartphone Integration Package to the C-Class, owners can enjoy the features provided by both systems. 

We love CarPlay and Android Auto here at Mercedes-Benz of Smithtown, for two reasons. One, both services provide a really cool way to enhance the comfort and functionality of a vehicle, and, most importantly, they represent serious safety features.
