CarBridge and CarPlay
« March 05, 2019, 17:04:50 »
So I installed CarBridge today and it has made CarPlay 10x better.
Having the option to choose your own navigation/music service is brilliant. The only downside for some is you need to be jail broken which being legal is perfectly safe.
Has anyone else tried this yet?

The site seems to be down.

It may be worthwhile for some though it's not for me as I wouldn't ruin my phones security to run an App.



EDIT - 2 days later and the site now works.

Yeah itís not for everyone, I have personally never had any problems with it.
The problem with CarPlay is it was limited to their own music service whereas I prefer YouTube music right now. Itís better for me now because I donít need to pick up my phone to start playing music because the app is ported on to the cars display

Hmmm, might have an old iPhone 5 sitting around somewhere just waiting to be jailbroken... :whistler:

That would be perfect for a car only device with CarBridge

Ok so I found that old iPhone, and now I remember why it's old and not used anymore. I forgot that due to an aftermarket screen replacement, the whole length of the right hand side of the screen to about a width of 5-6mm is dead to any and all input.
I can't even erase the phone due to needing the letter P for my password to enable said erasing :head_knock:
