Pioneer Brings Apple CarPlay To The Vehicle You Already OwnFirmware Update for Pioneer’s In-dash Car Multimedia Systems to Debut This Summer
TOKYO, Japan (April 16, 2014) - Pioneer Corporation today announced one of the first aftermarket in-dash car multimedia systems to provide Apple CarPlay, allowing consumers the ability to upgrade the vehicle they already own to the smarter, safer and more fun way to use iPhone in the car. CarPlay compatibility will be available in early summer 2014 via a firmware update to several 2014 Pioneer car electronics products in North America and Western Europe, followed later in 2014 in additional countries where CarPlay is available.
Utilizing large, in-dash Pioneer LCD displays, CarPlay featuring Siri voice control, gives iPhone users the features while allowing them to stay focused on the road. With CarPlay, consumers with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 can use Siri to make and receive calls, compose and respond to text messages, use Apple Maps for navigation and listen to their music, podcasts and iTunes Radio.

In addition to a host of on-board navigation and embedded entertainment options, Pioneer’s 2014 in-dash multimedia systems boast a more advanced and responsive user interface than previous Pioneer in-dash receivers as well as many sound quality, convenience and safety enhancements.
