We recently heard that Pioneer were working on a CarPlay aftermarket unit, and now according to a recent report, Alpine are also working on an Apple CarPlay device.
The Alpine CarPlay aftermarket system is said to launch before the end of the year, and the device is expected to retail between $500 and $700 US dollars.
Whilst manufacturers like Volvo, Mercedes, BMW and more are working on bringing CarPlay to their newer vehicles, some of these manufacturers are also working on CarPlay aftermarket solutions to add to their older vehicles.
Apple recently released CarPlay with Apple iOS 7.1, and we are expecting it to feature heavily in the next major iOS release, iOS 8 which is expected to land in September with the iPhone 6 and the Apple iWatch.
Apple’s CarPlay is designed to let you control a number of your iPhone’s function in your car with voice commands, it uses Apple’s Siri, and it is also integrated with in vehicle controls for safer control of your iPhone whilst you are driving.
