The new receiver features smartphone connectivity - Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ (via wired or wireless connection), voice commands (Alexa built-in), as well as entertainment features such as Spotify®, Bluetooth® streaming, Wireless Mirroring for Android, Hybrid Radio, FLAC file playback and more.
Apple CarPlay- Is the smarter, safer and more fun way to use your iPhone® in the car.

Apple CarPlay requires iPhone 5 or newer with the latest version of iOS.
Android Auto- Extends the Android platform into the car in a way that’s purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organises it into simple cards that appear just when they’re needed.

Android Auto may not be available on all devices and is not available in all countries or regions.
