We wrote about Apple’s Carplay about a month ago and were pretty impressed with how it looked. The only downside to the whole thing was the fact that it would only be coming in newer cars and not backward compatible with our existing cars. So while buying a new car just for the upgrade would have been the answer, it was also ridiculous.
Thankfully, Alpine electronics has come up with a way to bring CarPlay to just about any car this fall. The system would be installed as any 2-DIN player would be now and would use a wired connection rather than Bluetooth to connect to Apple’s iOS devices. This will also be the first aftermarket solution that is compatible with CarPlay. It will be rumoured to cost around US$500 – 700 and be available in the US and Europe this fall. Let’s hope that means Asia will get that not long after!
