Maps

Display Apple CarPlay map and use the navigation function just as you would on 
your iPhone.

Only one navigation system (pre-installed navigation or Apple CarPlay) can give 
directions at a time. When you are using one system, directions to any prior 
destination set on the other system will be canceled, and the system you are 
currently using will direct you to your destination.

After you have connected your iPhone to the system via USB, use the following 
procedure to set up Apple CarPlay. Use of Apple CarPlay will result in the 
transmission of certain user and vehicle information (such as vehicle location, speed, 
and status) to your iPhone to enhance the Apple CarPlay experience. You will need 
to consent to the sharing of this information on the Display Audio Screen.

Enabling Apple CarPlay

Cancel: Does not allow this consent.
Enable Once: Allows only once. (Prompt 
shows again next time.)
Always Enable: Allows anytime. (Prompt
