Bentley Apple Carplay with 4K Dash Camera – Apple Carplay Integration – Thinkware U1000 4K Dash Camera | B&B Audioconcepts Cardiff


Bentley Apple Carplay with 4K Dash Camera

B&B Audioconcepts successfully integrated this Bentley with Apple Carplay, it was by no means an easy upgrade but the skill level of the Audioconcepts team meant it was never going to be an issue. B&B Audioconcepts is no stranger when it comes to Bentleys, they were one of the first to successfully upgrade the Bentley headunit with its first headunit replacement kit and since have worked on many Bentleys which came from all over UK and Europe,  just take a look at the previous projects below in this blog.

This is a very cost effective solution which not only gives you Apple Carplay but keeps all your original Bentley menus and features which are still fully accessible and working with this upgrade, including things such as service history, TPMS, and factory extras such as reverse cameras etc.

You also have the option of adding a reverse camera to your system if you wanted one which B&B Audioconcepts can supply and fit.

Last but not least the Audioconcepts team supplied and fitted the flagship model U1000 dash cam from Thinkware. Capturing true 4K UHD forward-facing footage and 2K QHD rear footage with the rear camera. Paired with the award-winning Super Night Vision 2.0, this dashcam will record the highest quality footage day or night.

Bentley Apple Carplay is the Ultimate Co-Pilot

CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And CarPlay now features more app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay Dashboard.


Bentley Apple Maps Shows you the way

The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts and calendars. And with the detailed city experience, you can explore cities with unprecedented detail for roads, neighbourhoods, trees, buildings and more. Visit amazing 3D landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge in both the day and dark mode maps. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favourite restaurant or looking for nearby petrol stations.


Bentley Messages handsfree

You can send audio messages with Siri on iOS and CarPlay, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. And you can have Siri announce your incoming messages, then simply speak to reply. You can also ask Siri to share your ETA with someone from your contacts list while navigating with Apple Maps, to help keep everyone who needs to know in the know.

All your music beautifully arranged

Access all your content from your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car’s built‑in controls. Search by artist, album or song. See what’s playing and what’s up next. You can ask Siri to play your favourite song by Arcade Fire, act as your personal DJ or stream one of more than 100,000 live radio stations.

Calendar – Stay on top of your day
when you’re on the road.

The Calendar app gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you’re on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tap to get directions or dial in, using your car’s speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.

Control with a word, or a touch.

CarPlay with Siri voice control is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.

Use your favourite apps in Bentley

CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favourite audio, messaging and voice apps, along with apps in categories like third-party parking, EV charging, quick food ordering, fuelling and driving task apps. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay. You can personalise your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone.
