Apple CarPlay and Android Auto impair driving more than alcohol, research finds

Using a car's Apple CarPlay or Android Auto system while behind the wheel can impair a driver's reaction time more than alcohol and cannabis use, or texting while driving, new research out of the UK has found. In fact, drivers using these systems were found to take their eyes off the road for up to 16 seconds, while the time they took to react to an stimulus on the road ahead was slowed by up to 50 per cent.

BMW to add wireless Android Auto from mid-2020

Android Auto is coming to BMW vehicles from July 2020, but availability will be limited a small number of phone models. A BMW spokesperson confirmed only the wireless form of Android Auto will be offered, meaning BMW's implementation is only compatible, at this stage, with a small selection of high-end Android phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 to S10+, Note 8 to 10, and the Google Pixel range.

2020 Lexus ES300h gains F Sport model, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Lexus has confirmed the ES300h F Sport is bound for Australia in October, bringing bigger wheels and a racier look to the brand's hybrid sedan. Along with the sportier F Sport option, the wider ES300h range will gain Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard in October. Externally, you'll be able to tell the F Sport from regular 'Luxury' models by its 19-inch alloy wheels, triple-beam LED headlights with sequential indicators, and F Sport badging.

A bulletin instructing Audi dealers to stop the sale of all new and used examples of the affected vehicles was issued on Saturday 29 June 2019 warning of a software glitch with the infotainment system.
