  1. It’s about time.

    One thing about the Japanese, whether it’s cars or bikes – they’re really quite behind the times on software technology.

    I remember wondering why my CD player in my 2004 Accord couldn’t play MP3s.

    Full Apple CarPlay / Android Auto support has only appeared in many Japanese car models in the last year or two. Other companies have had it since 2015 or so.

    Choosing to support only Apple CarPlay is also a puzzling decision. Android Auto has been around almost as long, and while iPhones may be the single biggest selling brand, Android phones far outnumber them overall.
