Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi to use Google from 2021

Post by Sandgrounder » Tue Sep 18, 2018 5:20 pm

From Engadget/The Financial Times:
This week, the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, the world's largest maker of cars, signed a deal with Alphabet's Google to be able to use Google Maps, Google Assistant and the Android OS in its vehicles. The new systems will debut starting in 2021.
With a few exceptions, such as Tesla, manufacturer's navigation and other software often leaves much to be desired. However, it also provides valuable customer data, so many auto companies are hesitant to take advantage of Google's Android Auto and rival Apple's CarPlay. This new agreement could help these third-party software options become more standard in cars.
Whether this is for all the territories Nissan sell their vehicles in, or just the USA, remains to be seen!

Why "just the USA"?

Looks like I wont buy another Nissan etc. for at least 3 years then.

Such a pity that it will take so long to integrate tech that has been available for years. Android Auto app was released on 19 March 2015

Let's hope whatever they come up with is better than Android Auto...
