I doubt itMy "November" Software Update is scheduled for next week.
Right after that it is time to update my cell phones.
The big question for me is:
Should I switch to an Apple Phone just to be able to use Car Play. I would not switch for any other reason.
There's also nothing stopping Google from making their app carplay compliant - so you may see it on CarPlay before Android Auto releases.I have an iPhone and so I use CarPlay and I do think it's pretty great though limited but I wouldn't recommend switching phones just to get CarPlay. In fact it's likely I'll switch to android when android auto is available, primarily to be able to use google maps. I sort of can't imagine android auto being inferior to CarPlay. Who knows when it comes out though.
Apple is on record stating that any app available on the phone is available to work with CarPay provided they meet the requirements (mostly safety-related, no web browser, excessive inputs, etc).I think Apple may be stopping it actually but that is certainly possible and would be great. And would save at least one customer for Apple.
