  1. Plug your phone into the CarPlay USB port, which should be labeled with the CarPlay logo.
  2. If your car supports a wireless Bluetooth® connection, go to Settings > General > CarPlay > Available Cars and select your car.
  3. Start your car and leave it running.
  4. Ask Siri for what you need by either pressing and holding the Voice Control button on your steering wheel or touching and holding the CarPlay Home button on your touchscreen until Siri appears.

How to Connect to Android Auto™
