ZZ2 announced that it has upgraded its ZZPLAY CarPlay and Android Auto add-on kit software. It now allowis the end user to use the factory Bluetooth completely, eliminating the needs of the AUX port.
Users will be able to add CarPlay/Android Auto while still accessing OEM Bluetooth for all audio, music streaming, phone calls, navigation directions and Siri/Google voice responses, said ZZ2.
“Until now, all CarPlay and Android Auto solutions in the market used the factory AUX port to input audio,” said Tiago Sperandio.
“This release allows the driver to use the OEM Bluetooth (audio) source for all audio: music streaming, phone calls, NAV turn-by-turn directions and Siri/Google voice responses. It also allows the consumer to answer phone calls or place calls using any method they wish,” said Sperandio.
Additionally, the installer need not run an audio cable to the AUX port so installations are easier, said Sperandio.
New ZZPLAY kits are shipping with the new software and the software is compatible with earlier ZZPLAY kits. Dealers may contact ZZ2 to upgrade existing kits at 929-220-1212 or via email at [email protected]
