Which Cars Have Apple Carplay And Android Auto

In a world of wireless everything, there has been one technological advancement that hasn’t quite caught up. Up until now, Apple Carplay and Android Auto have required a hardwired USB connection. In order to use all of the features on one’s phone that collaborates with these systems, they need to be physically connected.

I’m sure that many others like myself have been wondering when this is going to change. After all, a phone can stream sound via Bluetooth. Heck, us iPhone users can wirelessly airdrop images and videos. What’s the hold up on getting our messages and other apps to do the same?

The feature has quietly come around but has been seen a limited rollout. We’re sure that, like other technology, as it becomes more affordable, it will end up seeing more cars and trucks. For those who see this as a must-have feature, we’ve stumbled across a list of the cars that have begun to implement the tech.

Below, we find the full list that USA Today cited as being part of the wireless club. For those who don’t want to purchase an entire car to get wireless phone integration, several aftermarket solutions exist to gain functionality.
