“Two years ago, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called CarPlay iOS, which allowed you to emulate the CarPlay head unit user interface directly on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad,” Anthony Bouchard reports for iDownloadBlog.

“Although the tweak was limited due the nature of the features that come bundled in the CarPlay interface, the developer has been working on a treat for those who liked playing with the original tweak; CarPlay iOS 2.0 is now available in Cydia,” Bouchard reports. “The developer has come through in making the tweak a lot more usable in the new 2.0 release by adding new features. It’s still very much a limited emulation since it’s occurring on the device itself, but we think you’ll find the tweak has a lot more to offer this time around.”

“For those who don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a CarPlay-supported head unit installation, this tweak provides a way to have some of the meat and potatoes of the features right on your device, and may be worth checking out if CarPlay was something you were looking into having,” Bouchard reports. “CarPlay iOS 2.0 is available in Cydia now. You can download the tweak for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository, but when you do, you’ll need to activate your license later on for $4. You can also opt for the infinity license that can be transferred between multiple devices for $12.90, or opt for bulk licensing options.”
