Jaguar Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™: Setup, Features
Apple and Android users in the Boca Raton area are in for a treat! Since last year when Jaguar announced the addition of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ on select 2019 models, more new Jaguar models than ever come standard with Jaguar Apple CarPlay® and Jaguar Android Auto™ compatibility. In fact, any Jaguar models with the following features are smartphone compatible:

Certain functionality can even be controlled via the vehicle’s Voice Control, providing for additional convenience.
