Carter Chevrolet’s Favorite Apple CarPlay® Apps

February 18th, 2020 by


Carter Chevrolet doesn’t like to take sides between brands (unless it’s Chevrolet, of course, because Chevy is the best), but we’d be lying if we said that a good number of folks around the office don’t have iPhones. Because we love Chevrolet and some of us love our iPhones, we can confidently tell you about some of our favorite Apple CarPlay® apps.


Okay, so this one seems like a no brainer, but do you remember trying to make phone calls in the car back when? With Apple CarPlay®, all you have to do is ask Siri® to place a call or listen to a voicemail — your hands stay right on that wheel and your eyes stay right on that road. How can you not love that?


Waze is one of our favorite navigation apps for one simple fact: You can set your icon on the map to be a little zombie thing. Waze puts the fun in functionality, letting you rack up points by reporting road and weather hazards, traffic jams, and accidents, which helps keep other drivers safer and more informed. Nothing beats the feeling of doing your part. Except maybe having turn-by-turn directions dictated to you by a member of a boy band. That also kinda rules.


Reading is fun, and it’s fundamental, but it’s also not something you should ever do at the wheel of a car. (Y’all. Seriously. Don’t try to read books while driving.) If you want to cut through your to-be-read pile on the go, turn to Audible, which syncs your place in a Kindle e-book to the same spot in the audiobook version. That way, you can seamlessly transition between reading and listening to “Infinite Jest,” which you’re probably never going to finish no matter how much you think you should.

At Carter Chevrolet, we love our iPhones and our favorite Apple CarPlay® apps. We also love our Android smartphones and Android Auto™, too. If you want to learn more about either, visit our glorious showroom in Okarche and we’ll show you how they work (and we promise not to tell you that the other one is better no matter what we’re holding).
