As I reported the rumour yesterday, SEAT has indeed released the first OEM CarPlay app on Apple CarPlay. Thanks to @yangrunenberger on Twitter for the tip, it turns out that SEAT have soft launched the app on the Spanish App store.
Without a Spanish iTunes account as well as a SEAT vehicle to test this on, I don’t know how well this app works. Leave us a comment with your thoughts if you’ve tried it.
SEAT DriveApp is the easiest way to have an amazing connected experience thanks to Apple CarPlay™ technology.
Enjoy your trip with the SEAT DriveApp features*:
• Car Status: Check car status.
• Dealers: Discover the nearest SEAT dealer to you.
• Offers: Consult the best offers for your car.
The SEAT DriveApp is available in some markets and car models with restrictions; please contact your SEAT local customer care to get more information about the SEAT DriveApp availability.
SEAT DriveApp is compatible with the SEAT vehicles produced from June 2016 with the Full Link option enabled (Ibiza, Leon, Ateca, Alhambra and Toledo).
*Some features require Internet connection.
