Meet iCoyote, The AppRadio Compatible App For Europe Only [Video]

Maybe one of our readers in France can tell us more about this story. I came across a video on YouTube from "MrBuzz118" which showcases iCoyote, an iOS app for the iPhone. The app is AppRadio compatible (both SPH-DA01 and SPH-DA100) and from the looks of it seems pretty useful. It is not available in the United States or Canada but is meant for Europe only. My knowledge of French is limited but here's the video and what I think this app might be capable of doing.

Here's A Better Video Of An XBox 360 And AppRadio 2 In Action [Video]

A few days ago I posted a link to a YouTube video showing an XBox 360 connected to an AppRadio 2. That video wasn't very informative.

INRIX Traffic Version 4.1 Is Awesome!

An older version of INRIX Traffic on the AppRadio
Just last week, INRIX Traffic was updated to version 4.1 with quite a few striking improvements. The app does one thing but does it well; reports traffic information. It uses this traffic information to report ETAs for your trip. I have used the latest version a couple of times and found it to be very useful. The iOS version of the app is AppRadio compatible.

User Video Shows An XBox 360 Connected To An AppRadio 2 [Video]

If you have a piece of hardware that uses an HDMI connection to display to an external monitor, chances are it will work with AppRadio 2. I can think of a handful of devices that can be used this way in the car ranging from media players to gaming consoles to laptops. The only issue, however, would be to get a power source to power up some of these devices. Well, one YouTube user (n0name321) recently connected his Microsoft XBox 360 to his AppRadio 2 to demonstrate how the AppRadio 2 can be used as a display monitor. Check it out.

AppRadio Receives Two Separate Updates (SPH-DA01 & SPH-DA02)

The first generation AppRadio was introduced almost a year ago with the model number SPH-DA01. And then another model number was added earlier this year (SPH-DA02). It was long believed that there was no hardware difference between the two. Today, however, there are two different updates available for each model number. Version 2.56 for SPH-DA01 and version 4.14 for SPH-DA02. The two updates have a couple of differences.
