As long as you have the required version of software on your phone(I presume Android L?) then the experience you get for android auto will be tightly controlled by google and not customized by the various manufacturers. So it doesn't matter if you have htc sense or samsung touchwiz on your phone whats on the car will be the same.

The comment was Androids fragmentation doesn't matter for cars as Android is going to control the OS for Auto, wear and TV. I don't see people using their tv's or even wear devices to connect with a jeep so not certain how that helps anything.

Except android on the phones is customized by each manufacturer. They decide when and which devices get their unique upgrade, not google. First devices will work fine but it remains to be seen how long the phones remain backward compatible with auto as the manufacturers goal is to get you onto a new device.

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

OAA will produce an interface with defined functions....just like what has already happened with bluetooth, wifi, nfc, and usb. Somehow the various manufacturers with separate "customizations" all manage to have functional devices that use the above mentioned standards and interfaces. OAA will be just another standard interface.

These customizations are just different launchers and menu designs. The underlying OS is the same. Yes, the hardware varies and the OS is compiled with the necessary drivers to support it. This is not that different from PC manufacturers.

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

Hi Tully,

On the Google Dev channel they said that Android Auto makes use of Google Play Services on the Android mobile device itself. What that means is that Google can update all Google certified phones (which are effectively all name-brand android phones with google apps and play store) without the manufacturer or carrier needing to release a normal software update. This is an oversimplification, but basically it means that if you have a modern Android phone with Google apps then it will work with Android Auto.

I hope that clears up any confusion.

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

Carplay....excellent! Now we don't have to listen to the Apple crowd bashing Android and repeating the same tired arguments that haven't had actual affects on the market or user functionality.

I'll refrain from bashing them in their "REAL Breaking News" thread although that's a pretty arrogant announcement. I'm happy for them!

As an admitted Android user and supporter, I am glad that Jeep/Chrysler got on board and announced future support for Carplay. It makes sense to support both platforms and the competition is good for product development and innovation.

Cultish thing? What are you talking about? We made great products and therefore were naturally a little biased towards them. I used to work for apple as well. But I was in one of the real offices on infinite loop not valley green lol.

Greetings,

Wait to see the full product from both platforms and how they work and feel. And the major factor, how they handle the 3rd party apps in particular the navi.

Best for now.
