Nissan Mexico launches Apple-Car-Play
This new interface aims to facilitate and improve the management of your smartphone while driving.
A few days ago, the Japanese automaker Nissan announced the arrival of its first vehicle integrated with Apple CarPlay technology.
This new technology allows iPhone users to use their smartphone applications through the interface of the vehicle, so they can stay connected without neglecting their driving.
You will be able to find this technology in the 2017 Maxima, making it the first model of the Japanese brand to adopt Apple CarPlay in Mexico.
One advantage of this interface is that it allows users to access their contact list, receive and make calls, listen or send written or voice messages, navigate through the maps and even use third-party applications.
It is important to note that to use the Apple CarPlay you must have an iPhone; this new platform will be added to the already existing NissanConnect – currently featured in other models like the Nissan March, Altima, Sentra, Maxima, NP300 Frontier, NOTE, Versa – which allows drivers to navigate, make calls and use some applications like Google Places, Facebook and Twitter.
According to David Marquez, senior manager of Vehicle Connected Services of Nissan, the integration of the Apple CarPlay to the Nissan Maxima opens a huge window of possibilities that are intended to facilitate the navigation and interaction of people with their smartphone without having to take their hands off the steering wheel, and keep attention on the road.
Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models, and is available in all versions of the 2017 Nissan Maxima.
