Video: Apple CarPlay und Android Auto im Opel Karl im Test von handytarife.de
Apple CarPlay works in Opel Karl really good. That it is then likely to do well in the new Astra, the same Infotainment system is build in. Android Auto does not work well. One can not rely on, that this 8 00:00:24,460 –> 00:00:28,239 does what you would like to have from such a Sytem: Navigate to a destination, for example. And now we turn right to Gate 55 We show yet, how it looks about with Apple CarPlay. The video I recorded two days ago. So and now we will look at how the whole works with the iPhone. The iPhone I have here in my hand and now I'm easyly pluging in the Lightning cable that I connected to the USB port of the Opel. And now you see directly Apple CarPlay starts here on the iPhone, you can still operate on the iPhone and here I now have the view of Apple CarPlay. The number of previously supported Apps for Apple CarPlay is very poorly. This includes, for example, Spotify, However Whatsapp not.
The buttons are relatively large. I can here at steering wheel start Siri and dictate her a message or tell where I want to be navigated to, I have my Phone contacts, I use Apple Maps here and can also listen to the by Apple pre-installed Services such as audio books, podcasts and also the music I saved on my iPhone. This all works very smoothly even the Apple Maps service is very reliable and can, for example, show traffic jams. However, what bothers me here are the Facts that there are no further Navigation apps out there that, for example, also support offline maps and I think Whatsapp should also have its place here on the screen to at least be able get to read aloud Whatsapp-Messages while driving..
