Enjoy the functionality of your smartphone from the driver’s seat.
Smarter and easier
Volvo Cars has taken the technological capabilities from the two platforms and added their own unique stamp by linking them to a specially developed interface. This interface allows drivers to use both voice and steering wheel controls to access selected Apple and Android features and services.
Use standard smartphone applications
Making life better on the road
Use CarPlay to access Apple’s popular iPhone apps. Make calls, send and receive messages, get directions, and listen to music—all from the driver’s seat.
Use Siri or the touchscreen display to send and reply to text messages. It’s a safer way to keep in touch with the outside world.
Chatting on the road doesn’t have to be distracting. Use Siri to make and receive calls, and listen to your voicemail.
Apple maps and easy-to-follow directions are just where you want them – right in front of you on Volvo’s bright display.
Music always makes a journey smoother. Listen to playlists, podcasts, and iTunes Radio using Siri or your car’s built-in controls.
Focus on the road
A belief in simplicity
“Apple’s clean and intuitive user interface is a perfect match with Volvo's Scandinavian design approach and our focus on fluid functionality,” says Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars.
Apple CarPlay integrates seamlessly with Volvo Cars’ new user interface. Visually, it becomes part of the on-board system, displaying well-known icons for Apple applications. Drivers will immediately recognise their basic iPhone applications, such as phone, messages, music and navigation.
