How to Get Started

To activate Apple CarPlay or Android Auto in any of the Alfa Romeo vehicles with this technology, you need to plug in your phone to the USB port — using a quality charging cord — on the multi-touch display. Based on your model, you will either have an 8.8- or 10.25-inch full-colour touchscreen display. After connecting your compatible smartphone to the USB port, wait for on-screen prompts and follow them to finalize the connection. 

If you cannot find the correct USB port, take help from the owner’s manual or get in touch with the expert technicians at Alfa Romeo of Oakville for more information on this initial setup. 

Things to remember: If you’re an iPhone user, turn on Siri on your phone for easy connectivity, as this will make using Siri through the steering wheel control easier and more convenient. Android users must turn on their phone’s Bluetooth for seamless data transfer.
