It was probably only a matter of time before Apple got into the automotive game in some form or another. So far Apple seems to be playing this game on a fair level playing field as they showcase a simplified interface for the infotainment system and automotive controls, which was first hinted at CES 2014. What we are seeing now are several automotive manufacturers with plans to integrate Apple CarPlay into their vehicles.

The automakers who have announced plans for Apple CarPlay are BMW, Ferrari, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar/Land Rover, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Volvo. Of these, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo will be the very first adopters of this new Apple tech in their vehicles.

Below is a demonstration of Apple CarPlay, which is said to be a seamless integration with current iPhones and other Apple devices.

Our question is, would you want Apple or a variation of Apple OS X in your car in place of whatever system is running for your GPS Navigation, audio controls, AC/Heater controls or even your vehicle settings?
