I’ve been driving for more than 3 years now an Alfa Romeo MiTo. Nice little car, perfect for city but also for longer trips, and it’s sporty enough without being uncomfortable. I really love it. So first of all, what’s your car?
Secondly, I’ve installed an aftermarket headunit from Sony that supports CarPlay and Android Auto, and it’s been a blast. It’s great to remove the distraction of the phone in your car, and to have all your most used apps in the car in a way more comfortable and safe way. I can do phone calls and answer messages (iMessage, whatsapp and even telegram) from my headunit and with my voice thanks to siri, have the best navigation apps without buying expensive optionals and music from the streaming app of your choice.
Also it’s been pretty cheap since I bought the headunit used and installed it pretty easily.
What do you think? Do you have older cars that would need this rejuvenating treatment??
Do you have any other useful ways to use CarPlay/AndroidAuto to improve your car experience?
EDIT: this is a very similar headunit on amazon:
they don’t sell mine anymore but my post applies to every aftermarket 2-din CarPlay/Android Auto headunit
