Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre has announced the availability of Apple CarPlay in Malaysia. Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre (PAC) is the regional headquarters of Pioneer Corporation.
Accessible on three of its aftermarket in-dash car multimedia receivers - the AVH-X8850BT, AVH-X8750BT and AVH-X8650BT - drivers can upgrade their vehicles to enjoy a smarter, safer way to use iPhones while driving.
Utilising large, in-dash Pioneer LCD displays, Apple CarPlay featuring Siri voice control lets iPhone users with the latest version of iOS on their iPhone 5 or later use Siri to make and receive calls, compose and respond to text messages, use Apple Maps for navigation and listen to their music and podcasts.
"Pioneer's years of expertise integrating smartphone connectivity into the automotive environment has provided us the opportunity to be among the first to offer Apple CarPlay to drivers," said Isao Nomura, Deputy General Manager for Business Planning and Marketing Division of Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre. "By providing an aftermarket option, selected Pioneer's in-dash multimedia receivers (AVH-X8850BT, AVH-X8750BT and AVH-X8650BT) give many iPhone owners in Malaysia the ability to add Apple CarPlay to their current vehicles."
Car owners with the newly launched AVH-X8850BT and also the AVH-X8750BT will be able to access Apple CarPlay immediately.
Download the free firmware update for the AVH-X8650BT. Current AVH-X8650BT owners can load the firmware on a USB memory device and connect it to the receiver's USB cable input.
