CarPlay

CarPlay allows the Apple smartphone to project a screen to the Head Unit display over USB. The Head Unit can launch and control the applications exposed by the smartphone using touch and knobs / keys. Apple speech assistant software 'Siri' can also be invoked from the Head Unit steering wheel control.
