Bluetooth System

One of these features is Bluetooth syncing. This ability to sync is available in the following Maserati models: the Levante, Ghibli, Quattroporte, GranTurismo, and the GranTurismo convertible.


There are also the usual radio modes of AM, FM, and an additional optional mode called DAB. You can listen to the radio or even listen from different sources like a USB drive, SD card, AUX cord, or even with Bluetooth. All options are manageable from the media page of the Maserati Infotainment System.

Maserati Navigation and Apple CarPlay

The Maserati Infotainment System has another feature, the Navigation Point of Interest, or the POI database. It is available for the Maserati models Levante, Ghibli, and Quattroporte for the MY19 system. In the Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio, the system that allows you to use their POI is called MY18 and allows the toy to choose your destination from a list of public places and other locations.

There are different ways to use the Maserati infotainment system, depending on if you use an Apple or an Android phone. If you use an Apple iPhone, then you need Apple CarPlay ™. Apple CarPlay ™ is available for the Maserati Levante, Ghibli, and Quattroporte. Apple CarPlay ™ will utilize the Maserati Touch Control Plus display screen and can even use Siri voice control. The Maserati infotainment system will allow you to have phone conversations, access music, respond to messages, and even give you real-time traffic updates and conditions, all while you stay safely focused on the road.

Android Auto

Android phone users can consider using Android Auto ™.  Andriod Auto ™ works in the same Maserati models as the Apple CarPlay ™ does, the Maserati Levante, Ghibli, and Quattroporte. Differences between the two are that the Android Auto ™ app allows you to access Google, and it utilizes Google Maps, so you have voice-guided navigation. Also, you get real-time traffic updates and notifications. You can share information easily while driving, as well as access millions of songs on demand in Google’s play music app.

Maserati Infotainment System

All Maserati models will allow you to program your route guidance and will enable you to enter favorites, under the NAV menu. Simply touch the soft key called, “Where to,” available on the touch screen. With the Maserati Infotainment System, you can drag any of the controls that you often use into the quick buttons. It also has a climate button that controls the temperature inside the car. The Maserati Infotainment System has the outside temperature and compass on top at all times, as well as the current radio station and the current time.
