RingGo is the first UK parking provider to integrate with Apple CarPlay
RingGo, the UK’s leading cashless parking provider, has just launched a version of their app that is compatible with Apple CarPlay. RingGo is the first UK parking provided who is adding this service to its portfolio. Drivers can now seamlessly and safely utilise the RingGo app on their iPhone to transition between searching and paying for parking and extending their parking time via one central console. For RingGo, this launch marks the final step in integrating the current iOS eco-system in its offering.
CarPlay is a simple and safe way to use your phone when you drive. It is available for all iPhone products which have iOS14 and above. There are already over 600 compatible models, from brands like Audi, BMW, Citroën, Fiat, Honda, Jeep and Ford, with more on the way. The feature enables drivers to pay for parking by simply entering their location and vehicle registration directly from their in-built central infotainment system.
In this post-lockdown era, roads are seemingly busier than they were before and safety matters now more than ever for drivers who are returning to the road, seeking to get from point A to B. The integration of the RingGo app with CarPlay is a demonstration of the brand’s dedication to provide the best user experience for its customers. Features such as a bigger screen and an intuitive user interface illustrate this further, as the needs of drivers can be met while they can keep their eyes on the road. This innovation also follows a current trend in the uptake of cashless payments, accelerated by Coronavirus as local authorities and parking operators look to provide safer and more cost-effective ways to pay for parking.
“We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to make RingGo as accessible as possible. Our venture with CarPlay is no different. We want to ensure that all motorists can access every tool and service they may need at a push of a button, not only making their journeys easier, but safer,” said Peter O’Driscoll, Managing Director at RingGo. “RingGo now provides motorists with more ways to seamlessly combine navigation, parking, transport and daily digital routines. For us it is key to equip our drivers with technology that increases efficiency when on the road. Now, motorists no longer have to juggle multiple devices and can find all their required services on their in-built infotainment console.”
