    Right now, Apple and Google each have their own proprietary system for communicating with cars and showing their system.

    If a new smartphone OS came out, or, say, Samsung wanted an Android Auto alternative, it wouldn’t work on any existing cars, and even for new cars, they’d perhaps struggle to get automakers on board in supporting them.

    I want that back end that exists on cars to be replaced with an open, standardised system that Apple, Google and anybody else that wants to can use to provide a CarPlay/Android Auto-like experience.

      Gotcha. That kind of thing will have to be mandated by our governments because no automaker has anything to gain from that kind of open system.
