CarPlay by Apple is exciting but what if you are not in the market for a new car? There is now an alternative, Siri Remote. It is a Bluetooth device that contains a single button that you tap once and it patches you though your car’s hands-free function to iOS on your iPhone and activates Siri. It can be clipped onto the sun visor or dashboard. It is relatively inexpensive at $79. Sync once and no need to sync again, there is no on/off. With Siri, you can listen to and send texts, emails, social network updates, control music playback, make phone calls, schedule calendar events, input navigation queries. The only catch is that you need an internet connection to operate Siri. For some this could be a problem when on the move.
