Funny, in the sense that I bought my Abarth at the first of the year and when I asked the salesman about it he said that Fiat was slow to implement it but it would be forthcoming and most probably retroactive.Mazda announced Carplay and Android Auto as a retroactive update today, but only for 2018 Mazda 6's. The Mazda internet channels are awash with seething owners who were promised it on 2016 cars onwards.
Here's the difference:so I have a mazda 6 2017, and also a 2018 pacifica.
And of course my Fiat 124.. (which is the best of the lot!)
I have the full navigation packages on all 3 vehicles.
the 2018 pacifica has Android Auto.
Mazda 6 and Fiat 124 are basically the same thing as far as nav / features go.
Cutting to the chase.
I see little to no value in having the Android Auto in the Pacifica. I used it a few times. Maybe Im missing the point.
The chrysler Uconnect setup is much better compared to mazda experience.
However Id choose either over Android Auto.
I personally don't see why this is a big deal..
Anyway. Forums are for opinions.
This is your own fault for having Zooropa in your library. No one should bother with any U2 post-Joshua Tree.Here's the difference:
With Carplay: "Hey Siri, navigate to 123 Main Street, Sometown". Siri: "OK, navigating to 123 Main Street, Sometown"
With Mazda/Fiat/Anyone Else OEM system: "Navigate to 123 Main Street, Sometown". OEM System: "OK, playing album Zooropa by U2".
No,no,no. Zooropa was when it went off the rails - hence my choice of example of OEM systems making poor decisions.This is your own fault for having Zooropa in your library. No one should bother with any U2 post-Joshua Tree.
