BMW Not an Android Auto Partner : (

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Google just announced Android Auto with over 40 partners:

Quote:
Google just delivered what we've waited for. A comprehensive redesign of the Android operating system designed for your ride. And unlike the handful of automakers that Apple has on board for CarPlay, Google is boasting over 40 automaker partners at launch, with the first cars hitting showrooms this year.

The basis for Android Auto is simple: Plug in your phone and an auto-friendly interface is mirrored on your car's display. Everything is run off your Android smartphone, delivering a clean, simple interface, and the primary input as it should be is voice.

What's more impressive than the functionality is the partners. Acura, Alfa, Audi, Bentley Chevy, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jeep, Kia, Maserati, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Ram, Renault, Seat, Subaru, Volkswagen, and Volvo are all on board. So there's a good chance your next ride will be Android Auto compatible.

BMW, Porsche, Toyota, and Mercedes are the notable exceptions

the execs at bmw are apple fan boys and girls. you can see the favoritism since day one and iphone apps and lack of any support for android until recently as an after thought.

I think BMW has good relations with Apple and will not easily do anything together with Google.
