Those who got drunk at least once in their life know that it is very difficult to overcome the temptation to write someone a message. It doesn’t really important whom to text: your ex-girlfriend, boss or a close friend.

According to 9to5Mac, Mercedes-Benz has initiated to introduce an aftermarket solution to intall Apple CarPlay on older vehicles. CarPlay is very useful for drivers, it enables iPhone users to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages just touching the screen or via voice command.
We’ve confirmed that at least Mercedes-Benz is looking into aftermarket installations of CarPlay that will allow older models of vehicles to access the feature.
