Car Mode in iPhone

Hey guys,

I have a HTC ONE X and I am planning on switchign to the iPhone 5. My major concern is just the Navigation. I use my One X as the GPS for my car and I love car mode. Is there something similar to car mode on iphone 5/ios 6? Please let me know!

Thanks!

It might help if you explained what car mode is.

There is a new Do not disturb feature so that you get no notifications from calls or texts
I take this back.. this is only when locked not sure how it works when you have the apps open.

I can't understand what they are saying, but is the gist of 'car mode' basically bigger buttons lol?

If so no I don't believe the iPhone has a feature like that. But then I guess the OS is simple enough to not warrant it IMO.

Has anyone been using their iPhone 5 with apple maps as their daily driver GPS? All works fine?

The iPhone does not have a car mode, like used on the Galaxy Note or S3. Nothing dedicated opens up when placed into a car mount/cradle. While I have found Apple's maps to be adequate, there are still alternatives in the market that are mostly better. Waze is a personal favorite of mine and works very well. Sadly, in the end, there is no car mode.

Is it possible to listen to music and do turn by turn navigation? i.e. does siri stop music and warn if there is an exit or turn up ahead?

I haven't had any experience with that situation on my iphone 5, but on my 4 running iOS 5, whenever waze updated my route with info, the music either paused or the volume decreased. I can't remember which it did. Sorry. I did notice that while Siri connected to my car's Bluetooth, turn by turn did not play through my car speakers using Apple Maps. Might be isolated with my car, others it might be different for. Going to try waze tomorrow and see if its the same.

Yes, the music fades out and Siri tells you the directions. After, the music fades back in

Yep! Your music will fade and then resume after Siri has spoken!

I use Navigon as a turn-by-turn GPS (no data connection required; all maps stored on the phone) and the music will also fade so you can hear instructions.

Yes but the music source has to be your phone. If you want to listen to the radio and have apple maps cut in, it will only play out of the iPhone speaker. Siri will override the radio but Siri on apple maps navigation won't. Can't figure this out myself.

Bottom line, the car audio has to be on whatever input the iPhone is connected to or it won't play through the car.

Car Stereos with IOS7-ready integration is said to provide more functionality.
