Your local Hi end Car Stereo Retailer Autosound of Lexington is looking to be one of the first retailers to be able to offer customers an aftermarket solution for Apple's CarPlay technology.

We are an authorized dealer of Hi End Car Stereo manufacture Alpine. Alpine has recently announced it is prepping for release of a Apple CarPlay aftermarket radio that will support Apple's new in-car iOS platform.

The Alpine system will be compatible with the iPhone 5 and newer models, letting drivers view maps from their phone on a 7-inch screen and use voice commands to access messages, make calls, and play music. It will also read your messages and directions out loud.

While Alpine is aiming to be the first to market with an aftermarket CarPlay product, but it's not the only company looking to the new Apple CarPlay technology.

Our vendor Kenwood also announced it expects to soon deliver a CarPlay model. We hope to sell and provide car stereo installation both new models in the near future.

Apple CarPlay is billed as a "smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car." It syncs your iPhone with your car's built-in display and features Siri voice control, letting you easily get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music while keeping your hands on the steering wheel. We are very excited to be first in the market to offer this product to our customers.
