Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will start offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for their 2016 model through their 4th generation UConnect system. FCA will showcase their new Uconnect® Systems at 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, it is hoping will help to attract new potential customers to buy their cars. It is because it will be integrated with customer’s smartphone and provide a better experience while driving the car. It is one of the reasons why more car manufacturers start to adopt Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as part of their infotainment system.
