Car hacks are little ways to make your time in a car easier, quicker, smarter, or more convenient. Auto journalists have a few of their own, but we learn a lot of them from readers. Here’s one from Jay Lucas.
What follows are his words, lightly edited by The Car Connection for clarity and style.
I recently replaced my wife’s old iPhone 5 with an iPhone 8, and I kept the older one for an experiment. We also recently added a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car to the household.
No built-in navigation system is offered on the Bolt EV. Instead, users enter their routes into a mapping app on their smartphones and connect it to the car via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
I find it annoying to take my iPhone out of my pocket and hook it up to the Bolt to get the navigation and music I like, which is required every time I drive.
