Today Google announced AndroidAuto, and Jeep was announced as one of their new partners. The story is developing. I will update this thread with information as it becomes available.

UPDATE: Here's an article with video demo. http://jalopnik.com/googles-dominati...aut-1595959590

YouTube video from Google: Android Auto: The right information for the road …: http://youtu.be/Ht8yzpIV9M0


UPDATE with statement from Chrysler:
“Becoming a member of the Open Automotive Alliance offers us a great opportunity to explore how we will bring a familiar set of Android features into our Chrysler Group, Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Fiat Uconnect systems globally. This membership will complement our mission to enable drivers to stay conveniently connected while keeping their hands on the wheel and their focus on driving.” -Alan Amici, Head of Uconnect Systems and Services, Chrysler Group LLC.

I watched the announcement and demo a hour ago live and it was very impressive. In my opinion, it was far superior and more advanced than Carplay.

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

not that i'm against Android, but I wonder why they chose them over Apple.

Apple prob wanted $.
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.

I would have guessed the opposite, unless you count only 2wd jeep owners as using iOS...

[sorry, used to work with Apple on Valley Green in Cupertino, somewhat totally underwhelmed by the whole cultish thing]

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

I like the concept but no cell phone will replace certain dedicated hardware like GPS. Sure I have off-line maps on my but I downloaded them for IL and WI as they occupy too much space to do all of US. And frankly I don't want to remember to download every time I go out of state. The GPS sensor is sensitive but...not quite sensitive enough. I was in Seattle over Memorial Day, the regular GPS could not figure out where we were...(around that waterfront market place) and frankly the phone wasn't much help either, though I could make a phone cal out. Down town Seattle, never mind rocky mountains Colorado. And unfortunately I think that mating the cell phone and the car is a recipe for disaster. Just wait till someone figures out how to jailbreak the phone and the system and enable Angry Birds to be played at red lights.

ACLU might even see it as an invasion of privacy. What next? Google checking up my speeding habits with data mined from the Carplay system and I get traffic lawyer ads in my Gmail? Don't know about you, but I am already weaning myself of Gmail. Free services are good but I am already data mined by Google beyond my liking. And for whatever reason, I am yet to find an interest in the adds that get generated by my online searches.

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

To me a multi 4x4 product and Apple product "cultist" owner I can relate better to - leopard, mountain lion and Yosemite
than Android "cutest" - cupcake, jelly bean and kitkat.

We all have our preferences and I'm not pressuring mine on anyone else. Just my attempt at a humorous observation.

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

Another way for the government to track me. Great. They've already got me on my cell phone and the nav in my jeep. I guess this will make it easier for them though.

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

Hyundai has already agreed to develop for both CarPlay and Google Android. Any automaker willing to ensure they capture the market as a whole is probably going to be in the best position. Remember VHS vs. Betamax or HD-DVD vs. BluRay and those companies taking one side vs. investing in both.

Time will tell but be certain that the cell phone will become a main source of integration for the car. We are already seeing that.

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

I certainly hope there is an 'opt-out' option, as I do not use, nor want, a smart phone, nor even a dumb phone.
