I bought a car without Apple CarPlay and I don't miss it at all – that's a problem


I bought a very old car, Apple CarPlay or android auto,I love it. This is an old BMW and it has USB, but nothing fancy. I use the built-in navigation system for maps and Bluetooth for music. I don't miss CarPlay at all. In fact, I'm relieved that I don't have to rely on my smartphone anymore. This is a big problem for Apple and Google. Instead of improving the situation, CarPlay and Android Auto have made it worse in every way.

What can my old car do that CarPlay can't? Let's start with what it can't do. It never freezes. There's no endless pauses when switching from music to maps, wondering if you need to restart something. Only the internal combustion engine restarts. Navigation system works fine.
