Greetings,

Great setup. Use it well.

Right now I am using the Pioneer AppRadio 3. Next I am waiting to see how CarPlay develops. If it not to my liking, I am going with my original plan and work off the iPad Mini and a new sound quality headunit.

Best for now.

LOL. I was going to say it looked like a police cruiser with so much hanging in front of the center stack.

It is a Mountek Have one in my Crossfire also to hold my cell phone with torque, sat-nav, and 500 CDs on a SD card. Don't need the CD with that.

As a loyal Apple user, i'm a little disappointed but it is what it is.

I would have guessed that more Jeep Grand Cherokee owners use iOS than Android.
Android*mobile operating system has 1 billion users — more than twice the 470 million people on Apple's iOS equivalent

Doesn't that tell it all?

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Jeep joins Google's Open Automotive Alliance

Yep but the important statistic is which is the most used by jeep owners - anecdotally I'm guessing its apple

Well, it doesn't quite tell all. IIRC, a very high % of the Andriods are just being used as phones, not smartphones. When it comes to major usage of the smart features, Apple is the winner. I chose an Android phone due to the open architecture and will stick with it - warts and all. YMMV.

My Google/android phone address book should be accessible by the NAV when bluetoothed to the Jeep - now that would be helpful!!!

Agree. Though I'm guessing they will quickly be compatible with both devices.
