Step-by-Step Guide for Setting Up Apple CarPlay

Nissan and Apple teamed up to make the Apple CarPlay setup process quick and easy:

  1. Connect your iPhone to the in-vehicle USB port via the charging cord
  2. When your display shows a message asking whether you would like to use Apple CarPlay – select “yes”

Just like that, Apple CarPlay is up and running with a simple plug of your Apple device. The interface should look familiar as the app icons appear as they do on your iPhone.

Tips and Information after Setup

Touch one of the icons to utilize the app’s features, and touch the home icon in the lower left corner of the screen to go back to the Apple CarPlay main menu.

To exit Apple CarPlay and return to your vehicle’s regular menu, press the menu button. To return to Apple CarPlay, touch the CarPlay icon.

Activate Siri one of two ways through CarPlay:

  • Press and hold the “Talk” button on your steering wheel
  • Touch and hold the home icon on your CarPlay Display

From now on, Apple CarPlay should be ready to go each time your device is connected to the in-vehicle USB port!
