Apple or Google?

Competing systems that will be available shortly from your favorite maker. Will Nissan go Google or Apple, or BOTH?

Perhaps they skip both of them and stick with tried and true QNX based systems...

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.

Has Google done a system for a car yet? Or would this be Google's first foray into the infotainment system business?

I'm sure they have for their own cars and it's quite possible that we could see them selling their tech to big car makers, i would like it if that was the case.

Ferrari uses Apple.

Google has announced their intention to break into this market. We'll see them both offered otherwise they alienate chunks of the buying public...

Android just came out with their infotainment system today actually. It will be featured in Audi cars for sure. Here is more info on it.

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.
