Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Gets Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio announced major infotainment changes: the fastest SUV in its class is the first to offer support for Apple CarPlay, the smarter and safer way to use your iPhone in the car.
CarPlay lets the user get directions optimized for traffic conditions, make and receive calls, access text messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road.

Stelvio Quadrifoglio is also compatible with Android Auto that brings the Android experience into the car by projecting apps and services to the screen in the central display, and is designed to make it safer and easier to get the information needed while driving. Drivers can use Google Maps for directions and easily access their favorite music, media and messaging apps in the car. Easy, immediate interaction with devices provides the convenience of maintaining the same operating system even in the car, for safe, simplified constantly connected driving, meaning great quality of life on board and improved ergonomics.

These new technologies extend the capabilities of the Alfa Connect 3D NAV 8.8″ available as standard or on request on Stelvio Quadrifoglio, depending on the market. Developed jointly with Magneti Marelli, the infotainment system offers a sophisticated series of features and functions, including a next-generation human-machine interface, with control by means of the Rotary Pad and using the high resolution display integrated in the dashboard design. In addition, the user benefits from an excellent level of visualisation and readability on the display.

Finally, controlling the DAB digital radio and the HI-FI digital audio, the Alfa Connect 3D NAV 8,8″ system includes, as standard, navigation functions with high-resolution 3D maps. The system is quick to calculate routes and can be used even if the GPS signal is missing by exploiting Dead Reckoning technology. It also allows updating of TomTom maps via USB, and display of driving style data and the type of ride set by the Alfa DNA selector.
