The Ferrari California T is one of the first four cars from the company to come equipped with Apple's CarPlay infotainment system. CarPlay allows you to access some features and apps on your iPhone 5 or above from the dashboard display in your car. It also provides access to Siri so you can access these features hands-free.
The 20-minute technical review above goes over the California's Carplay integration in detail. As is the case on most other CarPlay-equipped vehicles and third-party head units, the Ferrari's dashboard display features the company's own system, in addition to CarPlay, which can be accessed with a dedicated hardware button.

So which one crashes first. Car Play or the Ferrari?
The video is interesting but it's painful watching the cell coverage fails. I'm surprised that CarPlay is still only available in a few cars after being announced almost 2 years ago.
It's hard for car manufacturers to give up the 99% profit margins of their $6k+ "infotainment" systems...
Cell coverage is going to be a pain point but it's always nice to see Siri working well.
It's actually a pretty awful experience so I'm not surprised at all.
Okay, it's a little cleaner than current options. I don't see it as all that more functional that what I can do with my phone mounted in view and/or plugged into an In-dash nav system via USB.
Doesn't work in my Ferrari.. (456 Berlinetta)... Should I buy a new one to make apple products work for me? /s Posted via the Android iMore App!
What a shocking review this guy is so painful to listen too. BMW is so more advanced.
La semaine dernière, quelque chose de très cool qui s'est passé : l'Internet Archive a conçu une façon pour les gens à jouer des jeux à l'intérieur d'un tweet réel DOS classique. Espérons que vous avez obtenu votre plaisir dans vendredi, cependant, parce que Twitter ont tiré depuis la prise.
