For many people shopping for a new car, the quality of the infotainment system is an important consideration. It's something the automakers have taken on board, each scrambling to design an in-car system that will be enough to woo prospective buyers. Many, though, still struggle to produce anything that's more than merely functional. And with fragmentation between brands, these systems generally only offer a small handful of third-party integrations, falling back on native solutions for most core features, like navigation, music and messaging.

2. USB multimedia and charging port
3. Easy control with Knob and steering wheel buttons
4. Full-Screen Mode

1.What is wireless CarPlay?
Unlike many other manufacturers, leadsignauto also chose to implement wireless CarPlay, letting you connect your iPhone to your car without any cables. The result is a neater, clutter-free look that many car owners are sure to appreciate.With your car and iPhone paired, the native radio system menu will be replaced with CarPlay's alternative, showing all your available apps as iOS-like icons spread across the screen. Navigating the menu is no different from using car's own system, meaning you can use the original controller to switch between options — or, in vehicles fitted with a touchscreen, just tap the app you want to use. What's more, the voice-control button on the steering wheel can be used to summon Siri, letting you ask for directions, dictate messages or ask for music, just as you would on an iPhone.
2. USB multimedia and charging port
Our CarPlay solution comes with a USB port. It lets you charge your iPhone on longer drives, or you can use it for playing videos and music on your Audi Screen from a USB thumb drive.
3. Full-Screen Mode---Big Screen
LEADSIGN CarPlay interface lets you use all your favorite CarPlay-compatible iPhone apps on the original Maserati radio system in full-screen. The retrofit's 1280x480 resolution for big screens and 800x480 resolution for small screens look great on all screen sizes.
The Full-Screen mode also includes a Screen Mirroring option, which lets you cast the screen of your mobile device onto the Maserati original Screen, and stream audio through the car speakers. iPhones mirror wirelessly, while Android phones require a cable connection.
Please note that mirroring of some apps or content using the Screen Mirroring feature may be blocked due to the copyright-holder's DRM. LEADSIGN is not responsible for the continued compatibility of any third-party apps with our CarPlay Interface.
4. Easy control with Knob and steering wheel buttons
To navigate the CarPlay apps, you can use Siri (with a press of the voice command button), the Knob controller or even the steering wheel buttons.
6. Compatible with Front and Rear View Cameras
The LEADSIGN CarPlay Retrofit makes it easy to add front and reversing cameras to your order for a much lower price. The front view camera can easily be activated by holding the Option button for 2 seconds. To exit camera mode, just press Back. It can also be set up to appear automatically for up to 10 seconds when shifting from Reverse to Drive. The system also supports OEM (PDC) Parking Distance Control - parking radar and Dynamic Guidelines will be shown in the LCD while in Reverse.

My favorite app is missing. What can I do?
CarPlay is only designed to work with navigation, audio and messaging apps. At present, there are no known plans to add other app categories to CarPlay. That means that if you want to use other kinds of apps in your car—letting your passengers watch videos, for example—CarPlay might not be the right choice for you.
However, LEADSIGNAUTO offers a number of innovative solutions designed to get more of your favorite apps into your car. Our CarPlay Interface, apart from standard CarPlay functionality, also includes a screen mirroring feature (iOS AirPlay in the main menu). You can cast your smartphone’s display, making it possible to use non-CarPlay apps on the screen!
Can Apple CarPlay play Netflix?
Unfortunately, it can’t because CarPlay doesn’t support any VOD apps. The DRM technology in most video streaming apps also blocks use with screen mirroring. You can cast the YouTube app from your iPhone though, using the iOS AirPlay connection to our CarPlay Interface.
Reordering the CarPlay home screen
Like an iPhone, CarPlay also gives you the option to reorder the apps on the home screen, move the icons between pages or delete them entirely. That way you can always make sure you have easy access to the apps you regularly use in your car and don't have your screen cluttered up with extra apps you don't need.
Instead of configuring CarPlay in your car, everything is done on your iPhone, in Settings > General > CarPlay. There you have the option of drag-and-dropping icons across screens to define the arrangement you'll have next time you use CarPlay in your vehicle. Tapping the minus icon on each app will remove it from CarPlay entirely. On the same screen, you're also able to decide whether or not it will be possible to use CarPlay when your iPhone is locked.
As your CarPlay preferences are stored on your iPhone, not your car, each person who drives your car can even set everything up totally differently and access their unique configuration by connecting their phone. If you're already using custom driver profiles for each car key fob, CarPlay is going to fit right in.
Depending on your CarPlay system and the size of your vehicle's screen, CarPlay will be able to display eight or ten icons per screen. Due to this variation, anybody who drives several vehicles will have to configure CarPlay individually for each of them. The CarPlay settings page on your iPhone will show all the cars you've connected your iPhone to, and let you set up a unique menu arrangement for each. This could come in handy for anybody with a personal and company car, or a family car for the week and something sporty for the weekend. CarPlay lets you adjust the default menu on a car-by-car basis to prioritize the apps you're most likely to use at different moments in your life: messaging apps in your company car and entertainment for family outings.
How much does Apple CarPlay cost?
When buying a new BMW, all the optional extras are going to cost you, and CarPlay is no different. At launch in 2017, CarPlay ran to $300 in the US, roughly in line with other infotainment options.But now, with Leadsign Interface, we just charge one time!
Is Apple CarPlay subscription-based?
It was, but since release, BMW has taken another look at the way it offers CarPlay. In an industry first, BMW initially decided to make CarPlay available as a subscription service, including it free for a year in new cars and charging $80/year after that. BMW's argument was that Apple CarPlay subscription could turn out better for the consumer, particularly anybody who leases; it would have been five years before the total cost of the subscription had passed the old $300 upfront cost, so over the course of a typical three-year lease, you were going to be $140 up.
Buyers in the new and used markets weren’t quite so lucky. The longer they planned to hold on to the car, the greater the premium they were going to end up paying for BMW CarPlay subscription, and without the first year coming free, the cost would creep up that little bit quicker. It's clear why BMW's decision to shift to a subscription model came with its share of detractors, and why the manufacturer introduced more changes into Apple CarPlay subscription price.
