"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"

    No need to worry. This is actually a BlackBerry (QNX Car) system with an iOS module to allow CarPlay. QNX Car supports any number of interfaces including MirrorLink which does exactly the same thing as CarPlay but is an open standard. Hell Nokia created it so it even works with Symbian phones. Of course the auto maker has to enable the features for you to get them. CarPlay is just one option you can purchase.
