I'm pretty sure that Volvo is the only company using Apple for infotainment. Microsoft hasn't had the best track record with infotainment either. I would say that QNX is the best choice, but that doesn't mean that Nissan will choose it.
Nissan should look in to catering for both. Personally I would like for them to use Google but you never know. Also it wouldn't be to bad to see something new but for a new system I feel they might need to play catch up.
any idea how different we can expect these in car systems to be different than our mobile devices from these same companies?
i've only used apple devices and would like to use an apple in car inteface.
The system makes use of Google Now, which gives you quick, voice-based access to Google Maps navigation, text messaging and apps. The move also give Google a tiny bit of a toe hold in the auto industry as the company continues to develop autonomous cars.
Apple’s CarPlay in-vehicle infotainment system built-in to the Ferrari FF. Wherever Apple dives it nose in to you know Google/Android won't be far behind and want a piece. I'd like to see these systems in to more new vehicles.
