2017 New Compass Has CarPlay, Mississauga!
Life in busy Mississauga demands a vehicle with stellar connectivity. Jeep is happy to report that the all-new 2017 Compass offers Apple CarPlay through a Uconnect dash interface. Choose from a 5-, 7-, or 8.4-inch touchscreen, which facilitates safe and easy access to your personal smartphone interfaces.
Jeep was among the first companies to announce plans for CarPlay implementation back in 2014. After a few tweaks, the iPhone tool is now available for the all-new Compass, right on your car’s built-in display unit. A safety-focused tool, CarPlay allows drivers to remain focused on the road. You’ll be able to get directions, make or receive calls, or listen to your favourite music. Send or receive messages, too, without compromising safety. The other advantage: in-car apps are as up-to-date as your phone operating system. No more being held back by a pre-installed infotainment unit!
CarPlay can be accessed using Siri, the voice-activated Apple helper or via the also-easy touchscreen approach. All you need is a recent model iPhone (iPads won’t work at this point), and you can jump in your Jeep Compass and, as the Apple site says, “Just connect your iPhone and go.”
