    "iOS in the Car" - Apple's auto integration

    http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/10/a...s-for-the-car/

    Apple says that 95 percent of vehicles sold today are already able to work directly with iOS devices for music and playback control, but iOS in the Car will expand that functionality to also include phone calls, maps/directions, and sending and receiving iMessages using your vehicle's screen or eyes- and hands-free using Siri.
    I find this really interesting, especially for navigation. As it is, it takes a bunch of button presses and commands just to enter a destination:

    "Destination"
    (confirmation)
    "Address"
    (confirmation)
    "Street"
    (confirmation)
    "Elm"
    (confirmation)
    "1234"
    (confirmation)

    etc.

    On your iPhone, you simply say "1234 Elm Street, Denver, Colorado", all in one command, and you're taken right to the Maps app. Then just touch Start and you're on your way.

    That would be a HUGE improvement. Huge.

    Infiniti is one of several automakers signing on, and Apple says it will show up in 2014 models. Yea!!!
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    I'm betting on Google. I just find some of this stuff amazing though. My '11M is so much more difficult to use than the '06 it is mind boggling. No more lawyer screen but now the car thinks I'm a 'tard with no ability to even enter a phone # without going through multiple steps. Everything is simply structured for the average court jester/ fool to fumble with.

    Yep, even Acura (which I have considered to be the best system out there up to now) is succumbing to the safety nazis and making theirs harder to use. How this makes us safer is beyond me, as it distracts you more just trying to get the damn thing to work!

    in the 2014 Altima all you have to do is say its in one step but my 2013 Altima was not like that. It is so much easier and way quicker.

    Rennie - are you saying you can enter a destination in the 2014 Alti by saying it all at once, like "123 Main Street Columbus Ohio"? Like I can with my iPhone?

    I didn't know anyone had done that yet.

    Yes that is correct! No steps required!

    Well, that's long overdue! Hope it spreads to other cars soon.

    For some reason the 2014 pathfinder does not have that feature. I believe it uses a different system.
