The iLX-107 is a 7-inch display which lets Apple CarPlay be accessed via a 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi signal. To use, owners can simply follow the directions below:
 
  • Find the signal coming from the said display
  • Sync the iLX-107 with your iPhone’s CarPlay menu
  • Once connected, all functions including phone calls, Google Maps, messaging, iTunes and even Siri will be displayed

Now, you will get the full CarPlay experience: get real-time traffic updates, make calls, choose music, read texts. The best thing is that you can simply connect your iPhone via Bluetooth or WiFi without any cable needed.
 
The iLX-107 price at launch is $900. However, for that kind of money, do you think that it would probably make more sense to buy another smartphone, as long as your car is already compatible with Android AutoPlay?
