    At the cost of data in Canada is any wonder we aren’t really all that interested?

    So with LTE in cars, does this mean they would need their own data plans? And therefore, as stated, I doubt many people are interested in this : paying for the internet at home and on the phones already…why add a third internet plan/payment?
    Actually wouldn’t Android Auto work in a similar way but connecting your car to your phone (and use its services and data plan) instead of having to create another plan specifically for the car

    I’m still just waiting for cars that support Android Auto and Carplay.

      Some VW and Honda models support Android Auto and Carplay.

      In Canada? I’ll have to check that out.

    I think the idea of a ‘connected car’ is just getting ridiculous. We talk about laws governing distracted driving and yet people seem eager to coalesce around asinine ideas as this making it so the driver is less focused on driving and more on the tech they’re surrounded with.
    Playing back music is one thing but the rest is simply unnecessary and not something I’d be willing to pay more money out when buying a new set of wheels.
