Volvos with carplay: Updated for 2019

What is CarPlay? Apple CarPlay Apple calls it the ultimate co-pilot as it performs many of the same functions as an iPhone. Drivers can use the software to get turn-by-turn directions, make calls, send and receive text messages, and listen to music or podcasts. Check out this list of Volvos with carplay:

2016 – 2019 XC90

2017 – 2019 S90

2017 – 2019 V90

I’m obviously a Volvo enthusiast, but I’m also a huge fan of CarPlay. So much a fan that I created a site for CarPlay news and how-to’s. It makes Volvo and other car manufacturers’ built-in operating systems look and act like the 1960s. If you’re not bought into Apple’s ecosystem and have an Android phone, try Android Auto. Same thing, but by Google.

If you’re lucky enough to have a car (or a Volvo if you’re super-lucky!) with CarPlay, then you’re finding out for yourself how awesome it can be.

CarPlay is an Apple standard that enables a car radio or head unit to be a display and also act as a controller for an iOS device. It is available on all iPhone 5 and later models with at least iOS 7.1.

According to Apple’s website, all major vehicle manufacturers are partnering with CarPlay. CarPlay can also be retrofitted to most vehicles with aftermarket vehicle audio hardware.

Apple CarPlay
The ultimate copilot.

CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. And now with an all?new CarPlay Dashboard that helps you with tunes, turns, and Siri suggestions, a Calendar app that lets you view and manage your day, and maps that reveal more of what’s around you, getting there just got a whole lot easier. And a lot more fun.

Retrofitting CarPlay to older Volvos can be done. You need to install a new stereo headunit that supports CarPlay.
