ABI Research has a new report out about Apple's CarPlay vs. Android Auto. They note that just as in the smartphone industry, Apple and Android are now tough rivals in new the battle for automotive dashboard integration. While CarPlay from Apple (the software platform that synchronizes iPhones to vehicle infotainment systems) was first-to-market and had the backing of OEMs such as BMW, Citron, Ferrari, Jaguar/Land Rover, Mercedes, Peugeot, and Toyota and sixteen others. Yet ABI's Senior Analyst Filomena Berardi appears to be cheering on Google's Android Auto. He notes in this report that a few car manufacturers are delaying their rollout of CarPlay as if there's some major problem with CarPlay instead of it just being a new project that is experiencing a normal bump in the road with scheduling conflicts for this year's models.
