But today, in most cars, even older cars without bit-mapped screens, since the entertainment system and the HVAC system are integrated, I don't see how an aftermarket system can work, although it obviously worked in the Chevy.
Are there any common standards for these units like there used to be?
I've been running this head unit for a few months and love it. As far as I'm concerned, wireless chargers in cars are worthless unless there a wireless way to get music into the sound system.
tzeshan said:Do you notice that one important number is missing in all the CarPly available cars? There is no screen resolution specified. This is counter high-tech standard that Apple is very good at. For one thing, I like to know if the screens are all retina display like the iPads? Or maybe the screen resolution is fixed for CarPlay?
I can tell you that very few, if any, screens are retina. In fact, a lot of them are resistive instead of capacitive. CarPlay really doesn't need a hi-res display.
I'm hoping that a lot of these manufacturers offering CarPlay will soon offer it wirelessly. Combining wireless charging with wireless CarPlay is the ideal situation. Wireless charging with wired CarPlay is pointless.
I'm confused. The company name is Spectrum, but they're only mentioning Charter Spectrum. Does that leave out the Time Warner Spectrum customers?
Also, most streaming video is not available in surround sound, only stereo. Will Charter Spectrum be able to support surround sound? DirecTV Now doesn't, except in their PPV offerings.
This dock may be the "only game in town" as far as docks are concerned, but I've had success daisy chaining a TB3-TB2 adapter with a TB2-FW800 adapter. In fact, I used that combination to migrate my user account from my old 2010 15" MBP top my 2016 15" MBP with the old MBP booted in target disk mode.
