Well, we all know who the apple fanatic is in this room.

I hate siri. It can never answer anything consistently and when I need it. The only reason I switched from my Nexus 4 to the iPhone 5s was due to a new job. While the battery life is great, I desperately want Google Now back, which is why I'm not sure I'll be getting another iPhone.

You know Google Now is on the iPhone, with about 90% of the same functionality as its Android counterpart.

I never use it because all my data is currently going through apple services, so Google now really does not pick up on my stuff.
If I switched over to an Android phone I probably would more so.

In the future all Factory OE Car Radios will be able to work with either iOS or Android. They'll be little Linux PC's running a car interface skin like QNX or something with a real time OS.

Neither Google or Apple will own the Infotainment space in the auto exclusively. The Apple Hands Free is Apples first attempt to get into the car in a big way. Google can do the same thing, just wait....

My original question has been answered. Apparently it is possible to retrofit Airplay in older vehicles, although the actual mechanism for doing so hasn't been explained. Hope Nissan goes along with that. For my wife's Murano and for me, it would significantly amplify the usefulness of the Nav package on my Z that I was initially reluctant to spend the money on.

CarPlay Integration May Be Possible in Older Vehicles, Mercedes-Benz Working on Aftermarket Solution - Mac Rumors

Quote:
While it is unclear how an aftermarket solution might be implemented, information uncovered earlier this week indicates that CarPlay works in conjunction with BlackBerry's QNX car operating system. The QNX Car Platform is what powers many of the existing in-car infotainment systems installed in a wide variety of automobiles. CarPlay can be likened to Apple's AirPlay, utilizing in-car infotainment systems to mirror the iPhone's display and functionality, which indicates that it is a technology that can possibly be installed in older vehicles as well as new ones. It will be up to both individual manufacturers and Apple to decide whether aftermarket options will be available for older cars, however. Mercedes-Benz is thus far the only manufacturer that has indicated an aftermarket solution might be possible.

This would be a bit of work because you have to power the chromecast via USB and then do an HDMI to RCA adapter for video/audio (if that even works). Also, chromecast is just starting to support full mirroring on a few devices, a few 3rd party apps do it but they are known to be pretty laggy still.

No one is excited to see this in future Nissan models?

No, it puts up the chromecast home screen on the monitor ( mine is an aftermarket head unit). I have an iPhone and the hdmi connector does mirror my screen, but some apps won't show up like hbo go, but hbo go works with chromecast.
