How to Set Up Apple CarPlay®

Apple CarPlay in Jeep Renegade

Connecting your CDJR model with a compatible smartphone gives you access to tons of exciting features. Even if you’ve been putting it off, learning how to set up Apple CarPlay® only takes a minute! In fact, with a little help from our step-by-step guide, you’ll be reaping the rewards of this celebrated technology feature in no time. 

Set Up Apple CarPlay®: Step-by-Step

When we said that learning how to set up  Apple CarPlay® only takes a minute, we weren’t joking. After all, you’re basically just plugging your phone into a USB port, and letting your vehicle take care of the rest. 

Here’s a more detailed set of instructions, in case you run into trouble:

  1. First thing’s first: make sure your CDJR model comes with a UConnect® system that supports Apple CarPlay®. You should see the button while your display is on, even if you haven’t finished setup.
  2. Find your vehicle’s USB port, and plug your phone in using your iPhone® device’s charging cable. When you’ve successfully plugged in, the Apple CarPlay® touch-screen button will light up on your screen, going from gray to white.
  3. Find the touchscreen button that reads Projection Manager, open it, and ensure that “Smartphone Device Mirroring” is marked with a blue checkmark.

Now, you should be able to press the Apple CarPlay® touch-screen button, and see your Apple CarPlay® apps on screen! Find a place to set your phone down, and your ready to enjoy all your favorite hands-free features on the roads of Marrero and Gretna.

What is Apple CarPlay®?

Every CDJR model comes with tons of in-vehicle technology features and entertainment functions. However, for many of our neighbors near New Orleans, nothing can beat the familiar look and feel of the smartphone apps that you already use every day! 

Apple CarPlay® (and the similar Android Auto® feature) are designed to reduce risk and improve your user experience by making everyone’s favorite apps accessible from your vehicle’s home screen. In CDJR models, the Apple CarPlay® apps allow you to:

  • Make and receive phone calls
  • Access your favorite music and podcasts via iTunes®
  • Use Apple Maps® to get around town
  • Send and read text messages aloud
  • Play and enjoy audiobooks that are saved to your phone

That’s right: You can do this all without ever picking up your phone. You can make the experience even safer by activating Siri® and enabling voice commands!
