CarPlay Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
CarPlay is an Apple standard that enables a car radio or head unit to be a display and a controller for an iOS device. It is available on all iPhone models beginning with iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1 or later.
According to Apple's website, all major vehicle manufacturers are licensing CarPlay. Vehicles without CarPlay can have vehicle audio products from automotive aftermarket suppliers fitted.
David Gewirtz mentioned for ZD Net the bad about CatPlay, "CarPlay is incredibly limited. It supports a few audio apps (radio station apps, podcast apps, and music player apps), but that's about it. Even though there's a nice screen, YouTube (even with the car in park and the emergency break engaged) is simply not available, nor is any other video, including my purchased iTunes videos. If you think you're going to watch a quick tool show while your wife explores Walgreens, you're out of luck. Just prop up your phone and do it the old fashioned way."
