Wish there was an easier way to use your iPhone or smart device in your vehicle that is both safer and convenient? Well, you are in luck!
Recently, Buick announced plans to integrate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into its 2016 Buick Regal and 2016 Buick LaCrosse models, which will be available later this year. This addition will enable drivers to utilize the amenities found on a smart phone, such as navigation, safely sending and receiving messages, making calls, and listening to music, with integration through the vehicle’s 8-inch touchscreen display.
These models will also be equipped with OnStar 4G LTE for WiFi hotspot support.
“For most of us, our smartphones are essential,” said Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors. “Partnering with Apple and Google to offer CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility across the widest range of models in the industry is a great example of how Chevrolet continues to democratize technology that’s important to our customers.”

Did you know that only 22% of Americans still used printed maps? Instead, many rely on a GPS or smartphone to navigate to their destination. If you are one of those people who would rather use a handheld device, a new Buick would be a great addition to your family. Most 2015 Buick models will be equipped with 4G LTE built in wi-fi technology so you will be able to navigate more efficiently while out on the road. The addition of 4G LTE is also great for keeping your passengers occupied during long commutes. Your family will be able to surf the web, stream movies, and download new music using 4G LTE through OnStar.
Another reason why a Buick is a perfect pick for road trippers is because of its advanced comfort and luxury. Buicks are known for their excellent legroom and personalized touch. If you would like to see why Buicks are built for road trips, stop by Crawford Buick GMC in El Paso, Texas. We’re sure once you experience an all-new Buick for yourself, you will make it your next family vehicle.
The 2015 GMC Terrain and Terrain Denali will be the first GMC vehicles with 4G LTE capability and the team here at Crawford Buick GMC couldn’t be more excited! 4G LTE will give your vehicle the ability to transform into a Wi-Fi hotspot giving passengers the ability to surf the web and download movies, music, and games to their laptop or handheld devices.
This all-new technology will feature an antenna that is more powerful than those found in smartphones which will give you and your passengers the best connection possible. The 4G LTE service will be made available through OnStar. The Terrain will be the first new vehicle with the service, but the Sierra, Yukon, and Canyon will follow close behind.
GMC hopes that this service will be great for family travel making the Terrain the perfect place for it to debut. OnStar 4G LTE will be included on your new Terrain for 3 months or 3 gigabytes as a trial offer. If you would like to purchase a data plan for your new vehicle, they start at just $5 a month!
