The quest to record more individual data is never ending. And this change is about data. Their turning to Google is smart at least from efficient data collection.
Unfortunately for GM, the initial headline (which is frequently clickbait than truth) did not mention it was limited to electric cars. So my reaction was probably not unique: if true I won’t be buying a GM, period. But even though it is EVs only, hard to imagine they’ll not switch all models to this new infotainment system eventually.
I just will not buy a car without CarPlay, period. It is that important to me.
