Mercedes-Benz hints at CarPlay upgrades for older vehicles

I noticed writing about CarPlay that our commenters been wondering whether new feature that basically iOS in the car front and center would be for older vehicles.

Turns out just might be a possibility one of Apple’s launch partners for has now officially confirmed that it is on aftermarket installations for older

Jordan Kahn of 9to5Mac able to confirm with a representative that the car maker is into getting an “an after-market solution for cars” . confirming the option become available by the end of the year…

“While there is no info yet on how the installation would work, imagine it will be a dealer accessory for select older like Honda and others offer for Apple’s Siri Free feature,” Kahn

If Mercedes-Benz is working on a solution, I suppose it’s safe to that other car makers are to offer aftermarket installations for vehicles as well.  That’s a news because I don’t see buying a brand new car on CarPlay alone.

BlackBerry confirmed earlier week that CarPlay its own QNX Car Platform to connect with in-car infotainment systems in a wide variety of vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz’s implementation of CarPlay a lot to be desired as the touchscreen on its new C-Class floats above the dashboard, as to being built right the console like in Volvos and vehicles.

The following manufacturers promised to CarPlay in their vehicles this year: BMW Group, General Motors, Honda, Motor Company, Jaguar Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi Nissan Motor Company, PSA Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Motor Corp.
