Jalopnik have a hands-on video with Apple’s new Carplay feature in a Volvo, that combines native iPhone apps together into a new Apple-designed UI for your car’s dashboard display.
Ofcourse, it only works with 2014 model cars from certain manufacturers, so it’s going to be a while before this gains any significant proliferation. It’s nice to see an Apple designed solution in place of the usually horrible UI found in many car dashboards.
However I wonder how well this will work since Apple is only designing the software, not the hardware. Many touch screens in cars are nowhere near as responsive as the iPhone’s or iPad’s screen.
Maybe when I upgrade my car sometime in 2018 I can make use of this.
