Native CarPlay support still rare
The 2016 model of the Chevy Volt will support Apple's CarPlay, at least if an early demonstration version is accurate. The car is on display at this week's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and its dash system shows options for both CarPlay and MirrorLink connections. Google's Android Auto is notably absent, but since the 2016 Volt isn't due to go on sale until mid-2015, there may be time to implement it.
We get to check out JVC's upcoming KW-NSX600 and NSX700 head units
Over at the JVC booth at the CES show in Las Vegas, the company had its latest head units on display that feature MirrorLink connections for Android and Symbian-powered phones. This allows users to control their smartphone and access content from them on the new KW-NSX600 and KW-NSX700 head units. The former sports a fixed 6.1-inch touchscreen, while the latter gets a motorized 7-inch touchscreen, both sporting WVGA resolutions.
