Going mobile with Apple’s CarPlay (and a VW)
When it comes to software like CarPlay and Android Auto, integration with on-board systems is key
It’s no secret that when you buy a car, you get whatever already-out-of-date technology is built in. Not only that, but that technology — likely developed two or three years earlier — will become increasingly archaic as time passes. The result: In many cases, that overly expensive technology package is a waste of money. Knowing this, I recently bought a Volkswagen Tiguan R-line (before the recent emissions cheating scandal erupted). Despite that scam, the company still makes one hell of an SUV (and no, I did not buy diesel).
As of the 2016 model year, most car manufacturers offer vehicles that support Apple’s CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto, including Volkswagen. And as a longtime Apple user, I have to say, CarPlay is incredibly good. It’s no wonder it’s expected to gain popularity over the next few years.
