If you are a student, wife, mom or businesswoman, you would love Apple’s Carplay and Android Auto. These technologies allow you to take the conveniences of your smartphone and continue using them while you’re driving. Of course, everything is done in a safe way that allows you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. If this sounds interesting to you, the team at Extreme Audio can install a new radio unit in most vehicles that will provide you with these benefits.
As women, we know that we’re already pretty great at multi-tasking. Living busy lives, we easily get used to doing many things at once. I believe one thing no one wants is to put their lives or their passengers’ lives at risk. It can be tempting to check that text message or to set a reminder to call your mom while you’re driving. With these programs, you can do those things without any added risk.
Voice Control Of Apps
CarPlay works with any iPhone 5 or newer, and Google’s Android Auto works with any device running Android 5 and newer. Some of the compatible apps and functions include maps, music, Pandora, Spotify, opening and responding to text messages, and setting reminders. The icing on the cake is that all of this is done through voice control so you never have to pick up your phone.
A Snapshot Of Life With CarPlay Or Android Auto
Imagine yourself trying to get the kids ready for the day so you can get to work. As you’re packing lunches, tying shoes and making your coffee, you forget to get the address to your meeting. When you jump in your car and begin driving, you can simply say, “Take me to the …” Without you having to type anything into your GPS, your radio begins to give you turn-by-turn directions to your destination.
Then you remember that you forgot to ask your husband to pick your daughter up at school today. You can easily touch the large messages app on your radio unit and say, “Text John: Can you please pick Rachel up at school today?” Just like that, a quick text is sent and you only touched one button. When your husband responds to your text, you can also have it read out loud to you!
Maybe you have 10 minutes left in the car and you’re ready to listen to your favorite artist. You command your system to “Play Adele,” and now you’re really enjoying the last few minutes in your car.
Enhance Your Day
Every woman can benefit from these technologies to make better use of the time spent in her vehicle. I know I am enjoying my car rides more, forgetting things less and checking more things off my to-do lists more easily each day.
