The way I see it, when electronic gadgetry was first adapted to autos, it was whiz-bang cool and nifty. Big screens, touch screens, lots of things to fidget with that were unfidgetable before. Now it's kind of stagnated. I mean, we've had the 8.4 and all that stuff for years now. Carplay et al are just attempts to keep things fresh, I guess. It doesn't do anything for me. But then, I'm called old by most people anymore so maybe I'm irrelevant.
