Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are systems that drivers can use to connect their iPhones and Android phones to the Genesis Infotainment system. They were developed to allow drivers to access many of the apps on their phones without being distracted while driving. The apps appear in the infotainment touchscreen using an interface similar to the one on their phones. Using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allows drivers to interact with their phones’ apps while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands away from their phones. According to the Anaheim area Genesis dealer, all new Genesis cars and SUVs are equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Whether you own a new Genesis and you’d like to learn how to connect your phone to Genesis Infotainment, or you’re thinking of purchasing a new or pre-owned Genesis at a dealership like the Genesis dealer near Anaheim, this handy guide will get you ready to connect your iPhone or Android phone to the Genesis Infotainment system.
