How to Sync Apple CarPlay®

2021 Jaguar USA F-PACE
Connectivity technology for Jaguar has moved by leaps and bounds in recent years. Jaguar Paramus iPhone users love the convenience and ease of using Apple CarPlay® to stay in touch on Englewood streets. Using Apple CarPlay® to sync your contacts makes it so simple to call or text with your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, thanks to the power of Siri™. You might be wondering what syncing messages and contacts are like on Apple CarPlay®. Take a look at Jaguar Paramus’s guide, or contact us with your Apple CarPlay® questions.

What is Syncing Messages and Apple Contacts?

What is syncing messages and Apple contacts with your Jaguar? It’s the soul of Apple CarPlay®. This simple process connects your iPhone to your Jaguar, allowing you to access your contacts via Siri™. After syncing messages, Siri™ will read your text messages and voicemails to you with the push of a button on your touchscreen. You can also dictate outgoing messages to Siri™ without taking your eyes off the road or hands off the wheel. You won’t have to touch your phone to stay connected. Here’s how syncing messages and Apple contacts works:

  1. Make sure your Jaguar supports Apple CarPlay®. It’s a standard feature on Jaguar vehicles that are equipped with InControl® Touch Pro™ or InControl® Touch Pro™ Duo.
  2. Start your vehicle, then check to see if Siri is on.
  3. Connect your iPhone to your Jaguar.
    • If you drive a model that supports CarPlay via a USB cable, plug your iPhone into the USB port in your car.
    • If you have a vehicle that supports wireless CarPlay, set your radio to either Bluetooth® or wireless mod.
    • Press and hold the voice-command button on the steering wheel.
  4. On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > CarPlay, then tap available cars, and select your vehicle. Refer to your owner’s manual for additional information.

Once installed, Apple CarPlay® allows many customization options. You’ll see a popup that says, “Allow Contacts and Favorites to Sync?” Select yes to sync your Apple Contacts through CarPlay®.

For message syncing, go to your Bluetooth™ screen and tap the circled blue “I” to the right of your Jaguar listing. This will take you to a screen where you can select “Show Notifications” and “Sync Contacts.” This will allow Apple CarPlay® to recognize messages you receive when your iPhone is connected.

Other Apple CarPlay® Features

Contacts and messaging aren’t the only features Saddle River drivers will love when they use Apple CarPlay® through their Jaguar. You’ll also have exceptional Navigation from Ridgewood and beyond, access to Apple Music, Spotify through your Meridian Audio system, podcast and news apps, weather, and more! It’s all as simple as activating Apple CarPlay.
