A couple of years ago, Google and Apple both unveiled their latest mobile operating systems. No, I don’t mean mobile as in phones, I mean mobile as in cars. Since then, there has been a steady increase in adoption by auto manufacturers who are bringing this tech to the road. Last year, only a few car manufacturers were able to bring Android Auto and/or Apple CarPlay to their vehicles. This year, the list is much longer, and so it will go until not having a connected vehicle will be the exception rather than the rule. Connected vehicles are coming, do not doubt.

Apple’s launch of CarPlay came with a couple of basic complications, mainly because the launch didn’t include any vehicle that actually supports it. With Car manufacturers launching compatible models until later this year, it’s hard to see a mainstream adoption of the service if you have to purchase a new vehicle to enjoy it. Luckily manufacturers like Pioneer are looking to solve this problem for many of us that don’t plan to buy a new car, and the company has just made its launch plans official.
Pioneer has just announced that it’ll provide a [...]

Apple’s launch of iOS 7.1 includes benefits like CarPlay, which is Apple’s new way of interacting with your vehicle. The only sad part is that at the moment, nobody can actually use it, and this is mainly because you require a vehicle that’s compatible with CarPlay, and these won’t see the road until later this year. With the Jailbreak community losing its luster in the last couple of years, many of us have been worried that the only way we’ll use this service is buying a new car, but it seems that a company is planning to solve that for us.

We’ve seen a ton of leaks of what iOS in the car is going to be like on iOS 7.1, but none of us were quite sure of how Apple was planning to implement it. Some assumed that the company would build a specific version of iOS that would work on your dashboard, and others expected this to be a special “Car mode” that you could activate on your iPhone. As it turns out, iOS in the Car was named “CarPlay” today, and it’ll be something a little different than expected.
So CarPlay is actually a service that will launch on new Ferrari, Honda, Hyundai, [...]
