  1. I agree with trondude, a lot of touching the screen… distracted driving… If most of the operation could be achieved by Siri, then maybe OK. Could be great for older autos that didn’t originally have “screen” interface.

  2. I said I wouldn’t buy a car without Apple Carplay. Then what do I go and do? Buy a Tesla! The electric was just too tempting. Now all I got to do is ignore the horrible Goole Maps in the car. Absolutely hate Google.
    Ill probably end up glueing an iPad on top of half the Tesla screen.

  3. I kept asking myself, “Why do I need this?” I can and do have my iPhone in a holder in the car and do this already. Paired with the car’s system via BT makes it more hands free. What am I missing?
