CarBridge is an awesome app that lets you use any iOS application on your CarPlay supported touchscreen head unit through iPhone . Being stuck with limited selection of Carplay is no longer a problem with CarBridge. It brings you the whole iPhone experience to your car without limitation with apps like Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime and many more. And also CarBridge is the best alternative for NGXPlay.
CarBridge is a tweak for jailbroken iOS devices that allows loading unsupported applications onto CarPlay. It is developed by leftyfl1p. CarBridge allows you to use 2 apps which means one on your phone and another one for the car. And also you can hide any CarPlay icon and customize your CarPlay. There are no jailbreak CarBridge alternatives available in the market and let's dig deep.
From this article, we will reveal How to install CarBridge for your iOS 15 and iOS 14 device. iOS 15 has been launched by Apple in September 2021. Before you install CarBridge on your iPhone you need to complete the jailbreak procedure on your device. iPad and iPod touch are not supported because they do not run CarPlay. Checkra1n, unc0ver and Taurine are giving you the best jailbreak tools for iOS 14 to iOS 14.5 devices. iOS 15 jailbreak is on the corner and we believe a jailbreak tool for iOS 15 will be released soon for CarBridge , NGXplay and CarPlay alternative users.
You can install CarBridge on your device in three ways
- Via CarBridge official site
- Via Launching Zebra or Cydia
- A third party CarBridge (not recommended) - No Jailbreak method
How to Install CarBridge with Cydia or Zebra
You may either use Zebra or Cydia. Perform a jailbreak to your iPhone and continue these steps. There are 2 methods you may try.
- Install Cydia on your device. (you may find correct jailbreak tool for this from Wheelpal)
- Find Packix Repo from Cydia or Zebra and install it
- You will see CarBridge app here. Pay $9.99 and then you can download it.
- Or else Install Rocketbootstrap, Applist or Filza via Cydia
- Navigate Perferenceloader in source tab
- Use Filza to Install the leftyfl1p.deb file
Congrats! Now you have freedom to use any app on CarPlay. But in this method you have to pay 9.99 USD.
So without paying or worrying of any third party VPN installation, there are some trusted CarBridge alternative apps you may use in your CarPlay.
CarBridge alternative apps
WheelPal is a CarBridge alternative app. Wheelpal comes with a pack of benefits not only as a jailbreak solution or Cydia alternative. It brings you, your favorite tweaks,on your car play. Everything is lined up in Wheelpal app all you need to do is download it from the below QR code or link. No more worries about your Apple warranty. It's 100% safe now.
2. If you are not wishing to Jailbreak, another best solution for you to use CarBridge alternative such as InCar on your device. You may find InCar Android app from the Google Play Store.
Then again, if anyone is worrying about the carplay availability for your vehicle, you may check this availability by an Android app called CarPlay Compatibility Checker.
Is it possible to install CarBridge without jailbreaking?
As already mentioned about the CarBridge app, CarBridge is a tweak which only you can use after jailbreaking. But there are some ways to install CarBridge without jailbreak and also CarBridge alternatives on your device. Most of these methods are not recommended and we do not guarantee any success in these methods. Most of these methods are scams. We are just mentioning the method and trying it or not is solely your responsibility.
You can install CarBridge to your phone and then make sure to have downloaded the two free apps (Secure VPN and CyberGhost) to connect the carbridge app to your phone. You won't be able to install the app without them. (they can be deleted later after installing CarBridge)
Also make sure to switch on the Background App Refresh in your settings.
But this method is not recommended and could be a scam in many ways.
So enough with the heavy and let's move to some fun with Wireless CarPlay.
People who are sick with USB cables are in love with this Wireless CarPlay option. Since iOS 9, Apple has supported wireless CarPlay implementations. iOS 15 fully support this Wireless CarPlay with new features including Announce Messages with Siri, Driving Focus, and using the new wallpaper options. But apart of these, there are some unofficial adapters for Wireless CarPlay. One such is CarLink 3.0 adapter.
You may buy this CarLink adapter for Wireless CarPlay from Amazon via below link for $100.
This has an easy installation. Connect the adapter to your car’s USB port that powers wired CarPlay, then pair your iPhone to the adapter over Bluetooth from the Settings app.
So now, just forget about your phone when driving and your CarPlay is just in front of your eyes automatically. That's really easy to use and a comfort in driving and drivers know this.
One thing you may notice in here. Standard CarPlay doesn’t display boxes around on-screen content but Wireless CarPlay using the adapter does show boxes around buttons like the below picture. It's not a big thing but something to notice.
I must repeat wireless carplay is something worth having and only available for the people who already have Carplay Support. If your carplay head unit does not support Apple Carplay, consider upgrading your headunit to one of the below.
So apart all of this, the users are dying to know the story of smart intelligent cars. We got you covered and you may read our autonomous car / Apple Car section for more details and more interesting links.
