Do want.

Was considering the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which has old style connectivity but it's own head unit.  Thinking I might hold off for this now, not sure.

This could be huge, and very expensive. But those screens...this feels like a $2000 dealer option now that no one wants their crappy GPS anymore.

Wasn't the old Crappy GPS/bundle offered by dealers a $2000 option already?  I know I paid something along those lines for in car navigation package, and it's a POS.  I use google maps or apple when I need nav.

Yep. That's why I see this as a new $2000 option to replace the nav packages that are being killed by $99 phones.

They've been selling this as phone case and home charging base for a couple years. And Palm Pre had such technology integrated. Interesting that they're pursuing a licensing deal with auto makers.

Of course, it requires you have a special case or doodad for an iPhone since they don't have inductive charging built in.

I like the idea, but I use my phone as my GPS, so this doesn't suit my needs.

But I'm hopeful about recent conversation on MacBreak Weekly, that there's a lot of iPhone options coming via AirPlay and ios7, even for sub-$20k cars.

At the risk of being a party popper, studies are showing that even hands free operation of a cell phone reduces the driver's attentiveness to his primary function: driving the car.

 

I'm really getting worried about all the distractions that are appearing in cars these days.

You've not seen me navigate LA with printed maps off MapQuest. Trust me, an iPhone is an improvement. :)

There's definitely room for improvement here:

I could use a new car in the next year or three. I can see that my choice of smartphone is going to have a big impact on what car I might buy.

And this is why Apple rarely lets partners show its tech in their stupid ass commercials.

iOS in the car is now officially re-launched as CarPlay:
http://www.apple.com/ios/carplay/

You are tied to Apple's maps and only hand picked (like Apple TV is doing!) 3rd party apps for first round. Even Gruber is a bit skeptical:

I can't wait to purchase my new Mercedes with this built in. Apple has done it again
