Happy 1st Birthday to CarPlay Life!


Today marks one year of CarPlay Life!  How time flies by!

Just a mere year ago I launched this site to cover an empty void that was news on Apple’s CarPlay platform.  In that time I’ve had lots of support from Alpine, Pioneer, Kenwood, CarPlay app developers, and CarPlay installers, but most of all, the site wouldn’t be without you, the reader, and all the many CarPlay enthusiasts that have sent in their CarPlay installs, questions and comments.

We’ve all built a growing community on both Twitter and on our Facebook page, and this year I hope to grow that even bigger with the ability to discuss CarPlay, ask questions to owners and share your install and hardware topics in our new CarPlay Forum.

Please do continue to post your installs to our Twitter handle or Facebook page, however posting them up on our forum will also be a way to share your install, love and enjoyment (or frustration) with Apple’s CarPlay.

This following year I hope to be reporting on new aftermarket CarPlay receivers including those from JBL, JVC and new generation receivers from Alpine and Pioneer. I hope to also report on new factory fitted systems in the latest CarPlay enabled manufactured vehicles, and improvements on the platform as a whole. With a new iOS (iOS 10) version coming this year, I hope more improvements will come to CarPlay from Apple’s regular iOS updates and I hope we finally get our hands on the most wanted Wireless CarPlay feature.

Here’s to another year to CarPlay Life!
