"The German news site writes [German language only] that soon you can interact with your iPhone from the built-in touchscreen of their cars. The idea is shown in this video."

The press release speaks of the advantages (in sales-speak) of integrating a large portrait-oriented touch screen with an advanced voice control system like Siri.

This comes at a time, where Switzerland is contemplating of moving against large built-in screens in cars, as they are distracting for the driver"

    There's nothing at all stopping an automaker from supporting CarPlay, OAA, AND MirrorLink in one head unit. Plus, of course, they'll likely provide their own crappy phone-free interface for those who don't want to connect to a phone, or for when you don't have your phone with you.

    An automaker supporting CarPlay is good for iPhone users but it doesn't mean everyone else is automatically left out of the party.
