    Trying out CarPlay

    I only have guesses about Telsla: Design difficulties about how to carve off a portion of a 17” screen for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto Licensing of those requires full screen Tesla doesn’t want to cede control of any of their UX to Apple or Google Arrogance :)

    The car is intriguing. I don't understand its branding as a "Mustang". :)

    Trying out CarPlay

    And legit, I'd seriously consider buying a Tesla except they don't have Apple CarPlay. I'm now watching for the recently announced Mustang CUV which looks to be a good electric car *and* will support Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

    Trying out CarPlay

    Most likely. But it doesn’t matter, because the end result is the same no matter who’s at fault: Apple CarPlay is bit flakey based on my usage through a few dozen different cars over the past couple years. But I’d really like to have CarPlay. Despite its occasional problems, it’s so much...

    Trying out CarPlay

    I love CarPlay, but it’s still flakey. I travel and drive rentals one to three weeks a month. I’m getting CarPlay more often, but it’s not quite a given. Probably half the cars there’s some difficulty getting CarPlay to see my iPhone and connect and run. A recent rental it kept crashing and...
