All MDX models are Apple CarPlay® 51 compatible. Just connect your iPhone® (iPhone 5 or later running iOS 7 or newer) to the USB jack, select Apple CarPlay on the touchscreen, and familiar iPhone app icons will appear on the navigation screen, so you can make calls, listen to music or other audio, and even access your iPhone’s navigation software.
- When the phone and car are connected for the first time, there is an initial setup procedure that pairs your phone to your car. After that, accessing Apple CarPlay from your connected phone will be as simple as selecting it from the media sources on the ODMD™ touchscreen.
- To minimize eye diversion from the road, Apple CarPlay appears on the upper navigation screen, and is operated using the center console navigation interface dial.
- The apps are pared down specifically for ease-of-use while driving.
- For additional ease-of-use and to minimize distractions, Siri voice commands can be used for nearly all operations.
