When Stan Horwitz was without a car for a few years, his primary mode of transportation was his bicycle. He got tired of depending on friends to drive him whenever he had plans out in the suburbs, so last June he bought a new car — an electric one — a 2021 Nissan LEAF SV Plus. The technology in new cars intrigued him, including Apple’s CarPlay which came with his vehicle.

Stan will join us live from his car for the presentation. He will show us how iOS integrates with his vehicle, and how CarPlay works.

The meeting will be held online through Zoom — members should check their e-mail for instructions on how to connect and attend. Our friends from the Main Line Mac Users Group will also be with us. We hope you can join us.

A limited number of non-member audience “seats” at our Zoom meeting are also available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you wish to attend, please e-mail pres@pmug-nj.org, and include your full name to receive an invitation with connection information.
