Land Rover Integrates Apple CarPlay & Android Auto Into justDrive app
Land Rover debuted justDrive, an “app technology that integrates multiple smartphone apps into a single, voice-activated in-car experience,” during the Los Angeles auto show.
Whenever your smartphone is connected to your car, justDrive is an app that opens up into an “experience.” What does that mean? The “experience” involves natural-language speech recognition, similar to Siri’s functionality minus the voice-activated menus.
Right now it’s available for iOS 8 users, and Android users will have access in early 2015.

Land Rover showcased the new app in a silver 2015 Range Rover. For example. with justDrive’s voice-control system, you could say, “I want to listen to The Beatles.”
Then justDrive app would search connected apps, including Spotify and iHeartRadio, and would find some songs.
Land Rover’s justDrive system is solely for Jaguar Land Rover, but it will be compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. justDrive is also compatible with other parking apps, gas apps, and maps apps. Learn more about the JustDrive app and download it here.
