Certain 2020 models like the Indian Chieftain, Indian Roadmaster and Indian Challenger can integrate Apple CarPlay

Riders can now plug the iPhone into the system via USB and it will also allow the rider access to Apple Music and Maps via a paired Bluetooth headset. The headset though is not included and must be purchased separately. Owners of these Indian Motorcycle models can install the update at home with a USB flash drive. The download itself is free, and both the file and instructions are available on Indian Motorcycle's official website. For those owners, who prefer someone else to do the installation, a local Indian Motorcycle dealer can help set it up after a prior appointment.

According to Indian Motorcycle, Apple CarPlay is just one of several improvements made to Indian's Ride Command system. Riders can also expect improved navigation location management, improved boot time, audio muting and control improvements (including navigation audio), widget fixes and a new fuel economy widget, and improved functionality within navigation. So far, Indian Motorcycle has not announced Android Auto integration for its riders, who are also Android users. Both Honda and Harley-Davidson now currently support both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on certain newer models.
