safetuGMC trucks in Thunder Bay ON are some of a long list of new and used cars and trucks that will be popping up all over the place with Apple CarPlay and most all who need a new GMC Truck in Canada are excited about this addition.  “Between real-time traffic updates, navigation directions, hands-free calling, and streaming audio services, today’s smartphones offer many features that can be beneficial while on the go.”  This, along with almost all other technology that is available in a new GMC Truck in Thunder Bay has become well sought after to a point that drivers begin to question what they did before that technology or added feature became available.

All manufacturers put their own twist on things a bit.  “GMC has a solution. Starting with select 2016 Canyon, Sierra, and Yukon models, GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system2 will support Apple CarPlay connectivity.” Apple CarPlay is designed to be used with Apple iPhones running iOS 7.1 or later, and is intended to provide the driver with a simple way to not only connect a phone to their GMC Truck, but remain connected with their music, calendar, and other personal data in a hands free way, expressed in more detail below.

“More importantly, drivers won’t need to pick up their phone in order to control certain apps. Instead, they can utilize the touchscreen, steering wheel controls, or select voice commands to control their device while keeping their eyes on the road ahead.”  We all know that tying up your hands while driving can equal disaster and total distraction.  This feature minimizes the need for that sort of behavior in your Thunder Bay GMC Trucks in Canada and also in other new and used vehicles of a wide variety of makes and models on today’s market.
