Lanstrom, that looks interesting information from the CES 2017 Show. It will be interesting to see how or if Nissan go ahead with this system - Thanks Dave :)

Looks like the keynote will start at midnight (UK time) so I'll have to wait until tomorrow now :(

Lanstrom, is this what you were referring to from CES or is there more. This is a Official Nissan Press Release - Dave ;)

It would appear Nissan and BMW have opted to use Microsoft's Cortana, Ford will use Amazon's Alexa and Hyundai will use Google's Assistant for their in-car virtual assistants (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-38526807).

From the reading I have done it would seem they are only aiming this at the upcoming range of vehicles.

Looks like despite years of promised Apps for our Connect Systems they will be abandoned with no further updates.

I guess our only choice is to either stick with our existing system (paying at least £50 just to keep the maps updated) or use a mobile device (phone/tablet) instead.
