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

Greetings,

Here is some interesting reading.

Dealers See Gains From Android Auto, CarPlay | http://www.twice.com


So, the bottom line, the future will be incorporating these technologies into the vehicles over time. Unless Microsoft pulls a rabbit out of their hat, I can not see how they are going to compete. At least now, so of the manufactures are being their displays and dashboard screens up to modern standards. Everything in good time.

Best for now.

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

Looks like GM has abandoned their MyLink app store in favor of a complete reliance on Android Auto and Apple Carplay to supply most apps. This is exactly what I have been predicting that Chrysler/Jeep is/will be doing with UConnect. Very interesting read:

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

This is a wonderful advancement and just what I'd like to have now. It does need to have a way to use the GPD antenna in the vehicle, as that will work better than what is inside the phone which is inside the vehicle.

Greetings,

Excellent question. Hard to say. It seams from early demos over at the CarPlay side, they have some sort of integration with the OEM GPS antenna or the aftermarket Pioneer NEX units. To early to say. As far as I am concerned, they should be using it.

Best for now.

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

Greetings,

Here is the latest on the development of 3rd party apps:

Hope this helps.

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

So, maybe this is a stupid question, but how will this affect current models? Will previous Uconnect models be retroactively updated when this rolls out? Or will this only be available on future models?

Greetings,

It is hard to say what Chrysler intentions are. Currently, the uConnect systems may lack enough processing power to tap into the the system. This will effect the multitasking between uConnect and the smartphone causing a lag between events, despite the smartphone doing all the processing for the app.

Their are many rumors floating around regarding upgrading the 2014+ uConnect. I do not see anything for the previous years, for that you need an aftermarket HU. The more apps and in particular 3rd party apps will drive the market.

Best for now.

I am not expecting it at this point. Uconnect base software should support them both, but as mentioned by 1stJeep, the processing power and memory of the unit itself are probably not sufficient.

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

Thanks guys! It would be nice if the 14+ models could handle it and get upgraded, but I guess I won't hold out much hope.

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

I realize this was mentioned early in the thread but the privacy issue is of most concern to me. I have an Android phone and do not use a lot of otherwise useful apps because of the permissions the apps require. Not many people read the permissions they are by default agreeing to when they install apps. I had one unnamed app that required permission to send txt msgs without notifying me. Of course I declined and did not install.
Imagine if apps have access to all aspects of your vehicle information plus your phone.
