My wife and I have been thinking we'll get a new car in the next couple years and I'm definitely looking to brands with ios in the car. We have a 2008 Passat that doesn't have bluetooth, and doesn't even have an Aux plug for audio from an iphone. Just has an ipod dock in the glove box. I'm sure a $300 aftermarket gizmo would solve the problem, but it sure does sound more fun to solve a $300 problem with a $30,000+ car purchase, doesn't it?
some people are going to fuckn die!!
...right after i install a brand new system. of course.
Really wonder if Apple maps is the only one you can use, or if Google maps will also work?
i wonder when google's going to announce one, and how much afterward it'll be till we can retrofit our cars with auto-drivers
Hopefully their recent acquisitions of mapping companies helps their navigation.
...and then how long it'll be until cops pull your car over for you, can kill all cars within a certain area (like at a protest), or drive your ass straight to a police station without you having a choice
Wait. So is your phone in your car now? Or is your car in your phone?
- the road less travelled.Amicus
- at least they fixed a lot of this nonsense in the years sincemonospaced
- Really, they have fixed it? I have not used Apple maps since.utopian
- Yeah, they were forced to. That kind of fuckup was common only in the beginning, and Apple was forced to fix it.monospaced
- The long and winding road....OSFA
Blair Lockhart is calling. Holy Fuck.
I am not buying a car that's stuck with Apple maps, good thing google launched their own platform a while back.
"Instead of baking iOS directly into the dashboard, car makers will supply a Lightning connector for plugging in an iPhone."
Why does the car have to be locked into Apple? Could there not be a usb or bluetooth pairing which is compatible with both iOS and Android?
The cars aren't locked into Apple. Don't you guys read the articles?
"Not only does Mercedes-Benz have plans for Android-based in-car systems, but it will also continue to offer its Drive Kit Plus, Digital DriveStyle App, COMAND Online, and Mercedes-Benz apps that let users access a variety of smartphone apps from Facebook to Google Maps through the in-car display."
"Volvo noted earlier that it has a system to allow its own content and Apple’s CarPlay content to coexist on the same display, but it’s unclear exactly how CarPlay will integrate with Android-based systems and existing in-car systems. From the images above (and below) from Mercedes, we see that it will offer many of its own Mercedes-Benz apps like COMAND through the CarPlay UI."
