How to Play CarPlay Sounds Using Your Car's Speakers

Apple CarPlay enhances your driving experience by bringing the power of your iPhone to your car's infotainment system. While CarPlay is designed to play sounds through your car's speakers by default, there are several methods to ensure you get the best audio experience possible. Here are three ways to connect CarPlay to your car's speakers:

FM Transmission

For vehicles without a direct CarPlay connection, FM transmission is a convenient workaround. Here's how to set it up:

1.Select the Transmission Frequency: On the device that's connected to your car's infotainment system, find the FM transmitter feature and choose an unused frequency like FM 106.0 MHz.

2.Adjust Your Car Radio: Match your car radio to the same frequency. Simply tune your car's radio to FM 106.0 MHz to sync with the transmitter's signal.

3.Sync the Systems: Once your car radio is tuned to the correct frequency, it will receive the FM transmission from your device.

4.Play Your Audio: With the successful connection of the FM transmitter, all CarPlay sounds will be channeled through your car's original speakers.

AUX Connection

An AUX connection provides a simple and reliable wired method for audio transmission:

1.Connect with the AUX Cable: Use the AUX cable that came with your package to link the AUX-out port of your device to the AUX-in port of your car.

2.Select AUX on Your Car System: Switch your car's audio system to AUX mode to receive the audio signal.

3.Enjoy Your Content: Once connected, any audio from your device, including CarPlay sounds, will play through your car's speaker system.

Bluetooth Connection

Bluetooth offers a wireless and high-quality audio connection, which is especially recommended for CarPlay:

1.Pair Your Devices: Activate Bluetooth on your iPhone and pair it with your car stereo system under the Bluetooth settings.

2.Enable CarPlay: Once paired, your car should automatically use CarPlay, providing you with an interface to control your apps and music.

3.High-Quality Audio: This method transmits sound without wires, offering the best audio quality and a convenient, clutter-free experience.

By choosing any of these three methods, you can enjoy music, take calls, and interact with your apps using your car's speaker system while driving. While Bluetooth connectivity offers the highest quality and most seamless experience, FM transmission and AUX connections are great alternatives for cars without Bluetooth capabilities. Make sure to try each method to determine which works best for your vehicle and personal preferences.

Enjoy your CarPlay experience with the added benefit of your car's sound system, no matter where your travels take you.
